The Car starts easily and runs very well. very fast. very loud. NOTE-YOU WILL BE NOTICED IN THIS CAR. so get used to it. The car lived in So. Cal most of it's life and had some track time. I have not tracked the car-only driven on road and to shows. The car rides fairly hard with the Goodyears as it should. also it does not like to sit in traffic-it would prefer to get out on the road and run like hell!I have enjoyed this car a great deal but I have another project to complete so this baby must head on down the roadEasily registered in CA (!!). likes high octane or av gas if you can find it and is full of Brad Penn Oil. decals can come off easily. For full disclosure. there is a small chip in the windshield. numerous sm rock/road chips-none large-none an issue. horn does not work-it's there but has a tear in the diaphragm-we did get it to sound and it is very loud-. will need repairing. Will include the BFG Banner. BFG poster and Magazine. I would change the tires if you are going to drive it on the road more than track-they ride too hard and feel every bump-there are lots of good tires out there-but don't get rid of the Goodyear Billboards-they are really big money now as they are no longer made-nothing looks as good-or rides as hard(!). also think of joining a Cobra Club-they can be huge help with any issues. No trades-no knuckleheads. Serious buyers only ok?. but ask your smart questions. happy to take more photos if you need them-but let's not waste time. you should have some experience with racing cars to drive this car. it is fast and you can get in trouble quickly. so check in with yourself. this is no play toy. $ 500. 00 deposit immediately upon close of auction. BALANCE TO BE PAID (paypal payment for deposit only) WITH WIRE TRANSFER OR CERTIFIED BANK CHECK (or cash) for balance. balance to be paid within 3 days or deposit will be forfeited. car will be released only after funds are proven and legit. I would recommend that the car be sent via 'Intercity' -they brought it to me and I like them-cost will of course be yours but I insist that this be moved in a closed trailer. Thanks for looking and ask your questions. NOTE:Car is happily registered in CA

On Oct-07-14 at 08:48:28 PDT. seller added the following information:

COUPLE OF ADDL NOTES. SETREB OIL COOLER. WILWOOD ADJUSTABLE FRONTS. THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE KIT COBRA. THIS IS UNIQUE CHASSIS AND BODY-BUT EVERYTHING ELSE IS CUSTOM. MAGAZINE ARTICLE GOES INTO GREAT DETAIL ABOUT THE WORK DONE ON THIS CAR TO MAKE IT AS CLOSE TO ORIGINAL AS COULD BE DONE AT THE TIME. GOOGLE UP 'BOB SHAW COBRA' FOR THE BUILDER AND 'DAVE DRALLE ENGINEERING' FOR THE ENGINE BUILDER AND SEE WHAT KIND OF WORK THEY HAVE DONE. THIS IS NOT A SUPERFORMANCE-TYPE COBRA. IF YOU WANT THAT THEN YOU SHOULD BUY THAT. THIS CAR WAS BUILT TO BE AUTHENTIC 289 FIA. AND GO FAST AND LOUD ON THE TRACK. THANKS!
