Superformance 427SC
 SPO751, Guardsman Blue/Arctic White stripes 
—SOLD!—


Photo above is hotlinked [same view, MUCH larger size].

This absolutely magnificent Superformance Cobra is looking for a new stable. This serpent is drop-dead gorgeous both inside and out... no detail overlooked. Always stored in a climate-controlled garage and pampered.

And the best part... with its recently-upgraded big-block 427FE, this blue beauty is a veritable road rocket. The engine was recently redone to look more Legend-original, and supports its dual quad setup with lots of show, shine, and go.

This Cobra has never been raced, abused or neglected. It has logged only 3,353 miles [5,400 km] and is ready for you to take to the road!
