I’m the second owner of this glistening “Lil’ Diablo” Shell Valley Motors Cobra. It was originally assembled in 2002, and is painted Rosso Corsa Red with white LeMans stripes and quarterstripes.

It has logged just under 7,000 loving and adrenaline-filled miles [<11,300 km] throughout south Texas.

A bona fide ‘thumbs up/crowd pleaser,’ ready for your next club show, cruise, rally or day trip.

This lil’ Rossa Red reptile has provided me with many miles of driving thrills, and has been treated with all the love and respect it deserves. It has logged just under 7,000 trouble-free miles, and is an awesome drive, whether you take it out on city streets, hill country byways and switchbacks, or the open highway.

This driving machine is ready for you to drive, show, or just gaze at (which I still do!). It’s a no-holds-barred/muscle car of the motorways 427 Cobra that I’m offering for a reasonable price. You’ll encounter no disappointments, no unpleasant surprises, only exhilarating driving adventures!

Above: that’s my wife Julie ‘n’ me beside our favorite drivin’ machines. Hers is a 1969 Mustang purchased brand-new by her father. In essence a one-owner pony car.

And before you ask… nope, the ’Stang is not for sale for love nor Krugerrands.

24 June 2021:  Dear Curt and Judy... Go ahead and slap that "SOLD" banner on my “Li’l- Diablo” Shell Valley Cobra! After only a week, I had multiple inquiries, and she’s now on the way to her new stable down in The Peach State of Georgia. I can't thank you enough for your awesome advisory on how to take great Cobra photos, because my prompt sale was sold based entirely on those photos. I’m stoked to have sold to a first-time Cobra buyer who is going to hands-down LOVE that car as much as I did!  All the best to you both, Rick Robel
