Indigo Blue/white stripes
This fine serpent was purchased (by my father) from a gentleman in Virginia after seeing it on Cobra Country in 2013. There is something about the aggressive stance and intoxicating, complex curves that sets it apart from all the other muscle cars. I think they call this “snake bitten”. After researching different manufacturers and kits for 5 years, an ERA Cobra with an aluminum big-block engine was too good to pass up. This car is kept in a heated garage and has logged 15,600 miles [25,000 km].
The lightweight, robust and glass-smooth E.R.A. coachwork is constructed from expertly handlaid/bonded/riveted fiberglass, reinforced at stress points, and finished in Indigo Blue with white stripes. The seam lines and overall fit/finish is, in a word, exquisite.
Here are some of the specifics of this awesome driving machine…

—Other Premium Particulars—
No expense was spared in making this a show-quality/head-turning menace of the motorways. It was my dad’s ‘bucket list’ muscle car. This dazzling ERA thoroughbred is kept in a heated garage, and has never been rained on.
She needs a new home and someone who recognizes and appreciates the quality and stature of an ERA Cobra with a Shelby aluminum big-block powerplant! You’ll encounter no unpleasant surprises, only priceless driving adventures out on the open road!
Serious inquiries only, please!
