Superformance MkIII 427SC Cobra SPO2432. Royal blue/ Wimbledon White LeMans longitudinal stripes. Finished with all chromed livery: headlight bezels, quickjacks, turn signals and rollbars. Original and rare Ford 427FE side-oiler just like what Shelby used at LeMans (and every other FIA event) and Ford used in NASCAR racing. The Holy Grail  for Cobra guys who appreciate authenticity and power under the hood.

This car is a splendid driver. Also features power disc 4-piston Wilwood brakes which makes stopping a breeze. The cockpit features Legend-correct Smiths gauges and Legend-correct dash layout. With only 6,988 miles [11,250 km] logged and recent oil change this menace of the motorways is ready to roll.

One crossmember was re-engineered to unbolt in order to quickly remove the transmission, clutch or flywheel w/o paying for the labor of pulling the engine. An expensive modification that looks factory. IMHO, every Cobra should have this feature.

Carroll Shelby’s personal autograph on the glovebox, and you get his Certificate of Authenticity.

Serious inquiries only, please!

30 June 2021: Chris’s longtime amigo and confidante Dan Demeter shot these phenomenal photos of Chris’s Royal Blue serpent using his Pentax K100D digicam (digital camera) with its standard 18–55mm lens. Dan carefully followed our photography guidelines and took the photos at Floyd Bennett Airport near Lake George, New York. Cobra gold divider bar 6 July 2021: You can mark my magnificent Royal Blue Superformance Cobra SOLD! And after less than a week on your site. It’s headed for a new owner and a new motorcar stable near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Many thanks to my buddy Dan Demeter who painstakingly followed your site’s Cobra Photography Tips. For the record, I received several other serious inquiries in those few days my ad was running. You can color me (and Dan) happy campers! Chris Cornell
