1965 Backdraft Racing RT3 Roadster

Purchased as a rolling chassis in 2013. this gorgeous example was professionally completed by Millerspeed in Redondo Beach and has since logged just 2. 60 miles on the odometer. The stunning Spectra Blue paint job is the most sought-after shade of blue and is complimented by silver stripes. with black outlines. Nestled between the fenders of the custom painted engine bay lurks a mighty 427 Ford V8. producing 583 dyno-tuned HP and backed by a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission. The refined cockpit is spacious and comfortable. featuring plush leather bucket seats and period-correct styling.

The Backdraft Racing RT3 is considered to be an improved version of the original CSX cars. built using modern technology and engineering to improve performance. reliability. safety and comfort. Key to this is the chassis which was designed to incorporate the BMW E36 3-series suspension platform. This gives the car exception ride quality and handling. Additionally. the 2” longer wheelbase increases both cockpit space and legroom and improves high-speed stability.

Still in "like new" condition. this car is dialed-in and ready to exhilarate!
