They have an incredible stash of cars for sale. I love this particular Cobra.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Love the car.....LOVE the car, Love the history....Love that the pictures were taken in the foggy mist....needed to lose the cheesy air cleaner assembly....should have the correct one IMHO.

Wicked car.

I saw it in person, in Monterey (2017), when it looked like this.

Striking car even then.

That car is such a turn on!  The price seemed very right for it.  I need to look up the history in the Registry.  I agree that the air cleaner detracts from the prehistoric feel of this Cobra.  It looks like it ran webers in the 1960s.  Throw the webers back on I say.

Stunning car! I think I can make room in my garage for it if anyone would like to donate it.

The Get Smart reference on the hood is priceless!
