WARRANTY Used vehicle.

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 RT3 has just completed our Pre-Owned inspection and service program and is ready for a new garage to call home. Registered as a 1965, this Backdraft shows only 1,550 miles on the odometer. Finished in the iconic Guardsmen Blue and powered by a Roush 427R mated to a Tremec TKO-600 manual transmission. A very clean car overall.
