Vehicle Description

If an iconic two-seater with nearly 500 horsepower is your idea of fun, you’ve come to the right place. This is a 1965 Backdraft Roadster. The Cobra body shape is familiar and beloved among enthusiasts, and so are the great names that supplied hardware to create one fabulous machine. A thick vinyl binder contains complete information on the engine, electronics, and accessories. Everything is here right up to assembly instructions and a wiring diagram. A Dart SHP 351W block provides the foundation for the killer engine combination. The crank and rods are forged Eagle components with Mahle forged pistons. A 4-inch stroke combined with the 4.125” bore yields the magic 427 cubic inches. The heads, intake, and water pump come from Edelbrock. The carb is a 770cfm Holley. MSD handles the ignition chores. A COMP hydraulic roller bumpstick and lifters work with upgraded valve springs to facilitate reliable high rpm operation. Tires by Nitto, gauges by Autometer, 5-speed transmission from Tremec, Ram clutch, Fel-pro gaskets, Lakewood bellhousing and Moroso oil pan. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that the car was built using only the best, and you can enjoy driving rather than trying to figure out what’s in it. Even the Powermaster starter has dyno specs! (21.8 Nm @ 1088 rpm). The car has the looks too. The paint hue comes from none other than Ferrari. It’s called Grigio Ferro. Translate that to mean that elusive just right shade of metallic gray. With the blacked out wheels, the look is magnificent. Those are true knock off spinners as well. Four-wheel disc brakes, of course. And the tire fitment is perfect. 245/40ZR18 in front, and fat 295/40ZR18 in the rear. They fill the fenderwells beautifully sitting still and provide ultra performance traction at speed. Inside it’s black with gray stitching, with a trick carbon fiber dash to house the instrumentation. Strap in with Italian-made Sabelt racing harnesses. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s a sports car in the truest sense. The Iconic 427 1965 Backdraft Roadster.

We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle?s condition within the limited space available.
