In Backdraft’s occupant-friendly cockpit: fine black leather upholstery, 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 seat. Windwings and sun visors, driver-side SS (stainless steel) chassis-mounted rollbar. The Backdraft Racing cockpit is a bit more spacious than most other Cobras, enhancing your driving and touring comfort. Taller drivers can easily slip behind the wheel of a Backdraft Cobra, and there’s more legroom and kneeroom.

Serious inquiries only, please!

10 August 2021: Please mark my Sterling Grey Backdraft Racing Cobra SOLD! The buyer (only about 30 minutes’ drive from me) contacted me only a few hours after my ad went up on CobraCountry… went up on Saturday, gone to a new home only 3 days later! We’re both favorably impressed with your site’s local (Keystone State) coverage! Matthew Liggett
