IMPORTANT IMAGE NOTES: To fully illustrate this classic Backdraft Cobra replica, there are almost 100 images. The first 12 images are intended to give a quick overall presentation of the car from a variety of vantage points.

Seasoned collectors and enthusiasts know that to really "know" a car, a close-up look all around the car is a MUST...so there are several sets of close-ups for serious buyers featuring the Exterior, Interior, Engine Compartment, Wheels/Tires, and Undercarriage.

To see ALL the images...you MUST place your cursor on an image - allow plenty of time for all images to download - and then scroll slowly ALL the way to the bottom.

CAUTION: if you use the scroller to the FAR RIGHT of your screen or the "Click to view image album" feature...you will NOT see all the images.

OPERATIONAL REPORT & CONDITION SUMMARY…as one would expect, this Cobra is exhilarating to drive or ride it.Very solid and sure on the road…it inspires confidence.The quality of the Backdraft chassis/body is impressive. Everything we could think of testing worked…with the exception of the right brake light (likely just a bulb filament). The warning lights are not labeled – but the Backdraft binder illustrates all dash functions – which later explained one light that we saw “on” – which we think indicated that the brake fluid needs to be topped off.

There are nearly 100 images to show you every area of the car. By any reasonable standard, it is in very good-excellent condition in every area. From my experience as a concours-level judge, it would score highly. However, I have never seen a “perfect car”, so please be prepared for minor imperfections – two are shown at the very end of the image strip.
