This is a dazzling specimen of a Backdraft Racing Shelby/AC Cobra, chassis#661. It’s finished in premium-quality Rossa Red and Arctic White stripes. As a result, the paint is lustrous and safeguards against common road debris that would harm lesser quality finishes.

Everything about this Backdraft Roadster—from the 1969 Ford 351W V8 with correct T-5 C/S 5th gear transmission to its aggressive attitude and best-in-industry cockpit—will make your dreams come true.

My dream came true. I had always dreamed of this car ever since I was eight years old. It is now time to move onto another dream and let someone else live out his (or her) Cobra dream. You’ll revel in the raw power and next-level handling that this serpent has to offer.

Professionally built to show-car quality in 2008 and with only 1,100 miles [<1,800 km] logged, this li’l red reptile is in like-new condition. It’s well equipped to handle the race track with its powerplant, geartrain, altho’ it’s never been on a track. Cool morning or early evenings were no problem given the heater and de-mister—this extended my driving season significantly. The Backdraft cockpit provides you with extra comfort and additional legroom. The BMW M3 suspension provides outstanding road grip and nimble handling.
