The Backdraft RT3 Roadster is not a kit, it is a hand crafted replica of the infamous British roadster with an American V8 that captured every car lover's heart in 1965. It combines the historic looks of the original with the modern performance underpinnings of a BMW. The result is a stunning recreation that maintains legendary visuals while offering industry leading comfort and safety. Through continuous improvement and refinement the Backdraft Roadster has reached the top of its class for price versus performance and features.

This is the first Street Edition 427 Backdraft Roadster from Vintage Motorsports. In the 60's, cars available through dealerships featured full exhaust systems, no roll bar, no hood scoop, and full bumpers because they were sold for the street. Easily forgotten due to the focus on the Competition style cars, the Street Style cars were often referred to as the "Gentleman's Roadster" due to their refinement. This RT3 is finished in jet black over red leather and drips class. We did not hold back under the hood though, a VMS 427Xv2 crate engine is topped with Fuel Injection and is dressed to a degree only VMS offers.

This Pre-Owned vehicle is in excellent condition and has been treated to a full maintenance and detailing with ceramic paint sealant.

Call or email us today it you have any questions prior to purchasing this automotive icon.
