1965 Shelby Cobra
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Backdraft Racing roadsters, manufactured in South Africa and distributed worldwide, are redefining the muscle car. With a 92-inch wheelbase offering a bit more legroom and cockpit comfort, the roadsters are two inches longer than the original AC Bristol and Shelby Cobras. Backdrafts sport a low and menacing stance, having rear fender haunches that appear disproportionately large, giving the car a pouncing, serpent-like (small wonder) posture.
Sitting in our showroom, this Backdraft was custom ordered brand new with all the premium options. Including; Leather seats and door panels, diamond stitching, chrome fire extinguisher, glove box, 4 point harness, Raydot side mirror, 18 knock off wheels, paint protection on rear fenders and door tops, and a fully custom built 427 cubic inch V8 pumping out 422 horsepower.
The overall driving experience, sex appeal and sheer stance of this car will surprise any motorist. Monterey red-pearl paint is stunning and compliments the body lines nicely. The BMW suspension feels very tight and safe on the road. It has no problems harnessing the torque and power of the 427 small block motor. Mated with a 5 speed Tremec transmission, the driving feel is unmatched and like nothing else on the road. If you are looking for a fun, breathtaking, unique sports car with an unparalleled feel, look no further!
