Backdraft Racing 427SC Roadster, BDR#1755. Electric Blue Metallic with Arctic White LeMans stripes and Monza Red quarterstripes. Eye candy defined.

You’re looking at an awesome Backdraft Racing Roadster outfitted with a very rare Speedmaster ‘Cross Ram’ fuel-injected 427 cid Ford Windsor engine! There’s been only a couple of these magnificent engine combinations installed into a Backdraft roadster. When you raise the bonnet and see this snake’s beating heart, you’ll know why this beauty stands out from the rest! The engine delivers a robust 550 hp from this extraordinary fuel injection system.

It sports special options such as: custom-fabricated valve covers, silver-powder-coated intake runners, SS [stainless steel] braided hoses, and a billet aluminum catch can system. Even better, this silvery blue serpent has logged less than 200 miles on the odometer! She was completed less than a year ago.

It’s loaded with gran turismo-caliber options: a premium German fabric top to keep the elements out, a heater to keep you warm, and power [rack & pinion] steering to make her a dream to drive.

She has a clear title and registered as a 1965 Ford. This Backdraft Roadster is well sorted out and looking for a new den to call home. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own a very rare, out-of-this-world drivin’ machine.
