This Cobra is a pleasure to drive. It rides so smooth, unlike most kit Cobras. The 5 Speed Tremec shifts effortlessly.  The 18" Knock Offs along with the side pipes with their perforated heat guards, give it a great look.  The paint is exceptional on the BDR.  This particular Iconic 427 has an impressive Dyno Sheet.  You will see the Invoice from Speed Fanatics in Florida shows it rated at 535 HP.  The workmanship is outstanding on this BDR Cobra. It is by far the nicest one we have had the pleasure to sell.

Notice the addition of the glove box which was a $500. option.  Another optional upgrade is the latch link seat belts.  The trunk is finished off nicely, with room for a spare if you choose. It has a built in battery tender connector.  The undercarriage is another example of the quality of this car.  

The owner of the Backdraft did his 100 and 500 mile services and in 2016 he had a few minor leaks under the car. Being the perfectionist, he took it to Quality Motor Sports to have all of the gaskets changed. We have the receipt for the work done in Nov. of 2016. This car does not leak one drop of fluid of any kind.
