Unique offers you the only Cobra replica ever recognized as "The Best Cobra replica" by Petersen's Specialty Car magazine.

Unique 289 Flareside

Unique's 289 Flareside is available to you in both component and turnkey form, either directly from Unique or from any one of our dealers nationwide. Like our big-block roadster, the small-block Flareside chassis sports the high-performance Jag/Salisbury IRS rear assembly and 11" vented disc brakes in front. Here's a superb, very reasonably-priced Cobra replica that you can drop a small-block Ford V8 into without breaking tradition...
