I was the third owner and wanted to ensure that this car was fully-roadworthy for the trips we had planned. So (in November, 2013) I had the engine disassembled and thoroughly cleaned and refreshed by this region’s widely-respected Lanier’s Speed Shop in Colorado Springs.

New seals, gaskets, piston rings, oil pump, water pump, harmonic balancer; street-ported, flywheel resurfaced, clutch rebuilt, new master and slave cylinders. The Holley carburetor was sent to Brent Lykins to be rebuilt and tuned. The entire refresh was done during November 2013 at 28,000 miles [45,000 km].

This li’l red reptile has now logged 40,600 trouble-free miles [65,350 km] and has several multi-day highway trips to its credit. This “bad news in Enzo‘s rearview mirror” drivin’ machine is ready for you to drive or show or just gaze at.

This is a no-holds-barred/most menacing musclecar of the motorways, certifiably top-flight Superformance MkIII 427 Cobra that I’m offering for a reasonable price. You’ll encounter no unpleasant surprises, only exhilarating driving adventures!
