1965 Shelby Backdraft Cobra 427

NEW: 605HP Backdraft RT3 VMS 427Rv2
stock# BDR1429

The Backdraft RT3 Roadster is not a kit, t is a hand crafted replica of the infamous British roadster with an American V8 that captured every car lover's heart in 1965. It combines the historic looks of the original with the modern performance underpinnings of a BMW. The result is a stunning recreation that maintains legendary visuals while offering industry leading comfort and safety. Through continuous improvement and refinement the Backdraft Roadster has reached the top of its class for price versus performance and features.
Yet another classic Backdraft RT3 from Vintage Motorsports. The throwback style is complimented by the highly detailed 427Rv2 under the hood producing 605HP at the flywheel and 548HP going directly to the ground. This car comes fitted with a 15" set of wheels with the Goodyear Eagle Billboard tires for show and a full set of 18" wheels and tires for the street. This was a custom factory order for the classic Navy Blue with Wimbledon White paint and the classic style interior.
