If you've never heard of Backdraft Racing, I suggest you do a search for Vintage Motorsports. Their website will educate you on all the specifics that make these cars standout amongst their peers and surpass all others in terms of looks, quality and stance. For those of you that are taller and curious about one of these cars, Backdraft bodies are specifically engineered to be 2" longer in the cabin to accommodate taller drivers up to 6'5".
Buying one of these new would cost right at $84k to replicate and a wait time of 8-12 months. This is your opportunity to save thousands and buy a perfect example of a Cobra replica with only 3,700 miles on the odometer right now.
The car weighs 2400 lbs and puts down 650 horsepower TO THE REAR WHEELS on 91 octane! With the addition of billet oil pump gears, a smaller supercharger pulley, larger fuel pump and a retune for e85, you can easily be pushing 750 RWHP.
There are a few other Backdrafts with Coyotes for $60-$72k listed right now with more miles. The cost of the supercharger and, even more so, the custom work that goes into fitting a blower on one of these cars is worth buying a Cobra with it already done! Plus the added benefit of a fuel injected engine is the guarantee that it will start right up every time you go into the garage and not leave you and your passengers smelling like gasoline.
I'm only selling to purchase a sports car that I can daily drive.
The only negatives are some minor rock chips on the front from taking a few canyon drives, the rear tires will likely need to be replaced soon and the complaints you'll get from the wife every time her head snaps back when you put your right foot down.
The bank currently holds the title to the car but is an easy transition to the new owner.
If you are interested but are unsure how to get financed for a car like this, feel free to contact me. My bank works specifically with many Backdraft Racing replica owners and offers auto loans with up to 10 year payout plans.
This car may not be real, but it certainly is unreal! Don't miss out on your opportunity to own one of the most exciting cars of your life.
