…the iconic sports car that changed the game…

Second owner since new, I purchased the car one year after the original owner finalized the build with 1,000 miles [±1,600 km] on the odometer.

The car was reset/repowered at about 3,300 miles; replaced the Ford 351W crate motor with a new Roush Racing 402IR 8-stack fuel-injected powerplant.

lurks an orchestra of Roush componentry

Roush Racing 402IR 8-Stack: The coalition of a “Weber style” 8-stack fuel injection induction system employing Roush-engineered calibration and the proven track record of the 402R turns heads with its appearance and performance. The 402IR possesses all of the attributes of a daily driver with more than adequate ponies to rearrange the pavement.

Serious inquiries only, please!

12 July 2021: Bob used his brand-new Nikon Z5 full-frame mirrorless digital camera with its 24–200mm zoom lens to take these fine photos of his Cobra. What you see is an outstanding capture of what his Cobra looks like “in person”! Curt Scott Cobra gold divider bar 22 Jully 2021: You can mark my silver Superformance MkIII Cobra, SPO1388, SOLD.
