Royal Metallic Blue/Arctic White stripes, SPO#1580

Above 3/4-frontal (passenger side) shot is hotlinked [same view, MUCH larger size].

No expense was spared on this blue beauty, from the extra-cost options of the ceramic-coated sidepipes in sterling silver, hardwood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel, locking glovebox, and authentic Cobra and 427 badges.

The powerplant was professionally built by Roush and installed by the highly-respected Shelby- and Roush-authorized dealer Euro West in Costa Mesa, California.

Registered under the coveted "SB100" (California Senate Bill 100)—that means
no smog certification, no California registration hassles for the life of the car!

Roush 402 cid stroker Windsor V8

This Cobra has always been kept (and covered) in the garage and has never ventured out in inclement weather; it has logged only 9,400 miles [15,000 km], and has been exquisitely maintained from when it was new. It has also captured a number of trophys at local carshows and events.

You'll encounter no unpleasant surprises. Oh! And it's a pure adrenaline rush to drive.

This glistening serpent was showcased on the front cover
of California Car Cover, January 2013 issue.
