Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is super excited to present one of the finest replicas ever produced, this beautiful Monterey Red 1965 Backdraft Racing Cobra! The Backdraft RT4 Roadster has been extensively developed and refined over many years as a race proven, high performance sports car. With 60's styling and the use of a modern in independent suspension, it provides the ultimate in styling and drivability. It offers lightning quick performance, sure-footed handling, compliant ride comfort and outstanding braking ability in a well-rounded package that is unrivaled for quality and value. Backdraft Racing Inc. was founded in January 2001 by a couple of Champion LeMan racers, Tony Martin and Reg Dodd, and their desire for high performance is evident in the quality of their product. With a passion for racing and cars the company has evolved considerably over the past 20 years to establish itself as one of the industry leaders in producing the ultimate Shelby replica cars. This example was purchased new in Feb 2021 and is powered by a Ford Racing 427CID monster that was installed by SpeedFanatix of Lake Worth, Florida that's teamed up to a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission, a Ford 8.8'' Independent Rear End, a 3.55 Posi rear end and adjustable coil-overs on all 4 corners, so it certainly has no issue putting all that power down on the pavement! These are the epitome of what classic reproduction Cobra's should be. The interior features a gorgeous diamond-patterned cream leather upholstery on the bucket seats along with a color-coordinated dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes an under-dash mounted audio/Bluetooth controller, high end Hertz speakers, a dashboard-mounted rearview mirror, a carpeted trunk complete with a JL Audio subwoofer, Sabelt four-point harnesses, sun visors, wind wings, Backdraft Racing-branded floor mats, door pockets and the iconic wooden Cobra steering wheel. When it comes to true craftsmanship and outright performance, there are very few that come even remotely close to the exhilarating performance of these Backdraft Cobras!
