Superformance MkIII 427SC Cobra, SPO1657. Finished in PPG Royal Blue with Arctic White LeMans stripes.

A conscientiously sorted out Cobra, with only 4,560 miles [7,338 km] logged. The Coast High Performance 427 Windsor stroker powerplant delivers 500 hp and gripping acceleration via the Avon CR6ZZ rubber.

Paint and interior show like new. This dashing li’l road reptile has been professionally maintained by the Cobra gurus at ‘Top of the Hill Performance’ in Livermore, California.

Always garaged, never seen wet pavement or inclement weather, never tracked.
