3/4-frontal shot above is hotlinked [same view, MUCH larger size].

1964 Shelby 289FIA Cobra, CSX7027. LeMans Blue/black upholstery. This is an aluminum body car that was assembled by Shelby American and then shipped to Shelby's authorized San Diego–based authorized dealer 'Only Yesterday' in 2001.

Only Yesterday's renowned & respected Master Cobra Mechanic Doug Pratte painstakingly finished the car to original 1964/'65 Shelby standards. Doug added the FIA-mandated trunk bumps, LeMans cap windbreaker, front brake scoops & ducts, oil cooler, original jack and grease gun.

The awesome Cobra photography you see on this page was brought to you by Neal's longtime pal (and brother-in-law) John Moonan (visiting from Tampa, Florida), using his Nikon D70 DSLR digicam and its 18–280mm zoom lens. John carefully followed this site's 'Cobra Photography Tips'... and his results speak for themselves!
