Evaluation: – Three owners from new. Stored for three decades until 2005. The original 428 engine was replaced by a 427 years ago but it comes with the original engine. Gorgeous paint. Usable but aged original upholstery. Original top, side curtains and tonneau cover. The engine compartment is nearly like new. A gorgeous Cobra with 7366 miles.
Bottom Line: Sold by RM at Boca Raton with the factory 428 under the hood in 2005 for $535,000 which was appropriate at the time, as is this price today. Having the performance of the 427 is a plus for those who appreciate performance while having the original 428 on an engine stand mollifies most Cobra purists who decry modifications and updates. It is an exceptional car bought for an exceptional, but realistic, price.
