Contemporary Cobra

Condition and Assessment

Everything functions on this Cobra as it should.

Starts promptly and pulls like the 450hp dyno shows.

Oil pressure 60 pounds.

Drives straight and true.

After a rigorous test drive no signs of high temps.

The Cobra has been in garage storage and covered so well maintained since completion in 1996.

The past 2 years it has not been used.  As a result I would complete a tune-up and carburetor rebuild (it coughs occasionally on load)

It does need to be detailed and there are a few stone chips down low.

The doors and hood hinges need to be tightened and aligned and some abrasion where they stick.
