You're looking at a fine specimen of a pampered, low-mileage Backdraft Racing Roadster... only 4,600 miles [7,400 km] logged... and its flawless condition shows both inside and out. This immaculate machine has been meticulously maintained for its entire life.

This roadster sports a crate 392W from Ford Racing to hurl you down the road in rapid fashion and with solid reliability; it's fast and nimble. The paint and interior are in excellent condition and there is a clear vinyl protection on the entire front end and the rear fender quarters to protect the paint.

This sleek serpent is looking for someone to take her home to a new stable.
