The cockpit in this iconic road reptile is outfitted with:

  • fine black leather upholstery
  • easy-grip hardwood-rimmed steering wheel
  • AutoMeter vintage-style blackfaced gauges
  • rich black wool carpeting edged with black piping
  • 4-point racing harnesses for both driver & passenger
  • adjustable seat slider for driver’s seat
  • chromed fire extinguisher (affixed to the bulkhead between the seats)
  • windwings and sun visors
  • driver-side SS (stainless steel) chassis-mounted rollbar.

Backdraft Racing’s cockpit is more spacious than most other Cobras, improving your driving and touring comfort. A taller driver can easily slip behind the wheel of a Backdraft Cobra, and there’s more legroom and knee room.
