ERA 427SC/ SOHC Cobra [ERA#726]. Onyx Black/black interior.

The Ultimate Cobra! This is an iconic drivin’ machine fitted with an even more iconic powerplant.

This black-on-black mamba radiates an aggressive stance and a commanding presence that utterly defies meaningful description. A bona fide road rocket… an asphalt kicker extraordinaire.
