Evaluation: From the Neil Peart “Silver Surfer” collection, even though it’s painted black. An original rack-and-pinion car, it was first sold in California finished in red over black. Restored in the mid-2000s and purchased by Peart in 2015. Very good paint and bodywork. The engine bay and underbody show little indication of serious use. The driver’s seat has some creases, but nothing excessive. A very attractive Cobra with rock star provenance.
Bottom Line: Appropriately bought for the condition and equipment. Several cars out of the late Rush drummer’s collection brought a rock star premium, but not this one.
