This glistening black Cobra was manufactured by Shell Valley Motors in 1986. VIN# SVMXX1186. It was assembled in 2012 and finished within the last year. Legendary Miller Motorsports (Longmont, Colorado) executed most of the assembly. Then it was painted Range Rover Santorini Black Metallic (2014) with Ford Competition Red (2016) stripes and gills. This road rocket has logged less than 100 miles [<160 km] since completion.

All parts and components on this black beauty were purchased and installed brand-new. No used or donor parts.

It’s titled here in Colorado as a 1966 Cobra SC.
