Backdraft Racing 427SC Roadster, BDR#1751. Mercedes Diamond Pearl White/ Onyx Black longitudinal center stripe with black quarterstripes.

This immaculate Backdraft Racing ‘Black Series’ Roadster in truly one of a kind. It is the only Backdraft drivin’ machine painted with this custom Mercedes Diamond Pearl White with a solid black center stripe. This serpent is both beautiful to behold and a blast to drive with the Craft Performance 427 delivering a whopping 575 horsepower and corollary torque. This robust powerplant is backed with the security of a Ram heavy duty clutch, QuickTime safety steel bellhousing and Tremec TKO600 5-speed transmission.  There is less than 1.500 miles [<2,400 km] on the odometer. This serpent appears and drives like new.

It was built by and always expertly maintained by Radical Roadsters of Texas. Don’t miss your chance to possess and drive this like-new Backdraft for thousands less than a new one would cost today.
