Shelby 427 Cobra for sale by owner

25 January 2014

Dear Cobra Country:

You can mark my Sunset Red MkIII SOLD... only 30 days after it went up on your site!

It's headed for California and it was bought sight-unseen. My good photos sold the car, just as Curt predicted. I have also had four more inquiries (and counting!) since I sold it.

When I was thinking about buying a Cobra and putting that much money into it, I knew that when the time came to sell it that I could not list it locally and get the real value of the car. I had been looking at your site and saw how well the Cobras sell, so I felt that I could get the true value of my Cobra by listing it with you,,, and I did.

I might not have owned a Cobra had it not been for Cobra Country—and I would have missed the most enjoyment anyone can have behind the wheel of a car.

Thanks again!

It sold (sight-unseen, except for my photos) to a lucky new owner in Houston, Texas, and less than two weeks after bringing my price in line with other similar Cobras.

I received a dozen inquiries within days.

Curt is a recognized expert on Cobra photography and how top-notch photos weigh in to effectively market your car—so I counsel you to follow his photography tips to the letter! I netted over $10,000 more than I would've netted at the highest bid price I rejected at the Mecham Auction!

If you have a Cobra to sell, you don't need to look any further than CobraCountry.

25 January 2014: You can mark my Sunset Red MkIII SOLD... only 30 days after it went up on your site! It's headed for California and it was bought sight-unseen. My good photos sold the car, just as Curt predicted. I have also had four more inquiries (and counting!) since I sold it. When I was thinking about buying a Cobra and putting that much money into it, I knew that when the time came to sell it that I could not list it locally and get the real value of the car. I had been looking at your site and saw how well the Cobras sell, so I felt that I could get the true value of my Cobra by listing it with you and I did... I might not have owned a Cobra had it not been for Cobra Country—and I would have missed the most enjoyment anyone can have behind the wheel of a car. Thanks again! Don Blevins

Cobra/Daytona Coupe admirers: adjust your harnesses 

Peter Brock sent us this YouTube video link, which features a Daytona Coupe negotiating (at speed, of course) the straights, curves, corners and surface aberrations of Germany's historic Nürburgring track [Nürburg is the town—in Germany's Rheinland—"Ring" is how Germans characterize a circular track... hence "Nürburgring"]. Just click on the hotlinked 1961 Nürburgring "Grand Prix of Europe" Rennprogramm (race program) cover at left to transport yourself to The Nürburg Ring...

Needless to say, this is a video (and AUDIO) spectacular, so adjust your volume accordingly! And here's a li'l surprise: as genuine as the camera work appears to be, it's a digitally-produced animation... and it's wunderbar! Enjoy! Curt

11 March 2012: You can mark my Bright Green/Mecca Pearl Contemporary Cobra SOLD! Gone (as a wedding present) to a wonderful bride & groom in northern Virginia! First thing I would like to say is thanks personally to Curt Scott of Cobra Country. Curt is reason my car sold at the price it did, when it did, to the young bride-to-be it did. Curt called me up after I sent him my first round of photos and gently informed me "We have to talk." I became—with Curt's guidance—an expert at photographing Cobras. Curt's Cobra photography tips could make a professional photographer out of a blind man. His pointers are quite straightforward, and above all impart the proper methods to shoot these cars. My Cobra was selected and purchased entirely because my second round of photos really captured its beauty. The sale went flawlessly. From the first contact with Cobra Country, the photography lesson, the buyers' inquiries and every other aspect of this sale was not only professional, it was a joy. My car went for the price I wanted to some absolutely wonderful, appreciative people. All of the guidance I encountered from Cobra Country was expert and spot-on for marketing and selling a high-priced motorcar over the internet. I cannot recommend Cobra Country more highly. I was even invited to the wedding, as was Curt. Now that's how you market and sell and buy a car. See ya' in Gettysburg, Curt. Doc Fallon

Photography Tips
hotlink

You may think that all you need to know to take good photos of your Cobra is 1) how to turn on your camera, 2) how to aim it in the general direction of your serpent, and 3) how to press the shutter.

Think again.

That's the time-tested formula for capturing crappy snapshots that'll prompt all your potential buyers to flee screaming into the wilderness.

And justifiably so.

Photojournalist Curt Scott's latest revision has been carefully reworked just for you! It's a priceless investment of your time... a 'how-to manual' to very quickly enable you to capture professional-caliber photos of your Cobra or GT40.

Print it out, read it and heed it! And use the 7 'checklist' pages as you're snapping your shutter to make sure you take advantage of every expert tip.

Firefox browser
Update (23 August 2007): We had several folks report to us that certain versions of the Mozilla Firefox web browser do some strange things on CobraCountry. Specifically, images (such as the Cobra photos on this page) replace CobraCountry's main window/ frameset, instead of opening in a new window as our code mandates; when you close the photo, CobraCountry of course goes "poof!" and disappears. We received this 'fix' from Cobra aficionado Marty Shorey, of Milton Florida: "About the Firefox issue; I use Firefox with Mac and don't have a problem. You can set Firefox's preferences under "tabs" to "new page open in new tab" (or to "in a new window"); FF's new default is "in a new tab." Then when you're done drooling over the photograph, just close the picture "tab" and the browser reverts back to the tab that had CobraCountry open. It works easy for me. It's all about tabs, tabs, tabs." Curt's closing comments: you can of course set FF to open "in a new window," which I prefer, since I continually forget about "tabs" and close Firefox's entire window, expecting to be closing only the photograph—only to have CobraCountry go 'poof!'. Whatever your own preference, thank you, Marty, for resolving this dilemma.

Synthetic Oil: Rx for Long Engine Life

I keep getting questions about this ground-breaking treatise on synthetic oil that I researched and wrote in the early and mid-1980s, and first published way back in 1986.

Here's a hotlink to the only copy of that original article that I gave permission to be published (to Aaron Daniel, of the GetAHelmet.com website)... and the only copy on the Internet that I know of that is 100% replete with all of my original text, charts, captions and photos.
