This Phoenix Red/Can-Am White LeMans striped big-block beauty showcases both the best of ERA and the recognized talents of George Petrus. George was a highly-respected west coast Cobra racer. His two companies (Cobra Racing and Accurate Machine Products) are widely known for their Cobra fabrication and performance work.

Only 1,400 miles [2,250 km] from new, this rich red reptile turns heads wherever it goes; its strong 428FE powerplant announces its arrival even before it makes its appearance. And I’m selling it only because I now need the garage space.

Dear Cobra Country (1 July, 2019): You can officially mark my ERA Cobra as “SOLD.” Thanks to your photography tips, sage advice and great website, I received 4 solid offers within 2 days of posting my car on Cobra Country. My ERA will be making a trans-Atlantic crossing, and will reside in a new motorcar stable someplace in France.

Again, my thanks—your professional mentoring of my photos and the posting narrative played a key role in its quick sale! Ken Walsh
