One of the nicest fit and finish kits on the market, the Backdraft
Cobras are hand built in South Africa. They are sold as a
customized completed rolling chassis and allow you to add your own
drivetrain. The quality supersedes most other kit makers on the
market. This Cobra has just under 2,500 original miles and is in
EXTERIOR: The paint is slick and vibrant, finished in the classic
indigo blue with dual white racing stripes. The stripes are smooth
to touch and have been cleared over. All the chrome, stainless
steel trim, and bumpers are in excellent condition with no pitting
or weathering. The wheels are a Cobra reproduction and are fitted
with BFGoodrich tires with lots of life left! These Backdraft
Cobras are elegant yet still retain that tough appearance. There
are a couple small stone chips on the front as to be expected from
sitting so low to the ground. This has additional accessories like
tinted visors and side wing windows.
INTERIOR: Inside shows exceptionally well and you're able to tell
the difference in quality by Backdraft as well. The seats are real
leather replicas to the original Cobra. Even the driver seat is
angled slightly to align you properly with the foot pedals. The
carpet is fitted nicely as well as the leather wrapped dash. This
has functional classic 7-gauge cluster, turn signals, wiper blades,
a working horn, and fuel pump and fan switches. In between the
seats is the classic 5 speed Cobra shifter as well as a battery
disconnect. This Cobra has dropped steel floors allowing bigger
people to have plenty of room in the cab.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Under the hood you'll find a very appealing,
show worthy engine bay. Backdraft goes beyond tubular chassis and
has stainless steel cladding on the fender lining to give it a nice
appearance. This has a manual steering rack, electric radiator
fans, stainless coolant reservoir, a very sharp looking Windsor 302
block with Edelbrock aluminum heads, a small cam with a nice lope,
dual Holley carb, and triangular stainless air cleaner. All the
hoses and wiring are tucked nicely and fitted properly.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The quality continues! Fully carpeted with a
nice battery tie down and a red top optima battery. There's a
kickstand attached to keep the trunk lid popped.
UNDERSIDE: Underneath is spectacular! Backdraft uses a front coil
over shock system, 4 wheel disc brakes, multi link rear suspension
with a Ford 8.8 rear end and 3.55 gearing ratio. All the powder
coating still shows nice and shiny in gloss black and is new
looking. This car truly is spectacular inside out!
A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am
offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen
are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your
questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a
walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
