Only 10,800 one-owner pampered miles [14,400 km] on this cruising roadster. a civilized version of the iconic 427SC Cobra with a take-no-prisioners persona.

She has until recently always been in the cold dry climate of the Colorado high country; she is now in North Carolina, and always under a cloth dust cover in my garage. It is in magnificent condition in every respect. Completely sorted out with no issues.

You will encounter no unpleasant surprises, only exhilarating motoring! Affectionately known as “Baby,” this lustrous serpent is a bona fide thumbs-up head-turner wherever she goes.
