1965 Shelby Backdraft Cobra 427

PRE-OWNED: 550HP Backdraft RT3 ROUSH 427R with Fuel Injection
stock# BDR1161

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.
This Backdraft RT3 was custom ordered by the original owner and configured in a subtle but menacing way. The black out rollbars and exhaust give the black body a chance to capture your eye. The engine selection was easy, Roush 427R with one of the few EZ-EFI setups installed directly by Roush and tuned to their specifications. A limited Slip differential puts the power through the steam roller 335 BFG Rival tires.
This car is loaded with options and would cost over $75,000 to build new.
