Custom-built E.R.A. 427 roadster built to flawlessly resurrect the persona and the performance of Shelby’s original “Menace of the Motorways.”

This is a serpentine rocket ship: powered by Ford’s 428FE [480+ horsepower] engine, professionally built by Southern Automotive in Georgia.

Titled as a 1965 Cobra roadster, you have an original-year title and (in most locales) none of the emission law headaches to deal with.
