Nice build. Lots of options and good parts used throughout! You should not have trouble selling it at that price.

Charlie, I talked to my co worker who is interested in the Cobra. I’ve given my take on it and explained to him how a great car and buy this is. He has a couple of things to look into before making the first step. He has your number, his first name is Sherman so look out for him on your phone. He’s in Southern Maryland.

Charlie, I just talked to Sherwin, and regrettably he has to decline the interest to buy the car. He said he will text you later. Sorry for all the hype.

Hi Dan,

No hype and no problem! I will keep it listed here for a while before I post it on other forums.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hi All,

My Cobra is off the market now. Mecum Auctions is coming to Harrisburg July 31 through August 3, 2019. The auction will be only about 30 miles away from my home. I've submitted a Request for Position. I'm going to give it a whirl there.

Thanks for the interest and kind words! O0

Have a great day!

Good outcome at Mecum last week! The car sold for $30,000. The check should be for $28,500 because I offered it at no reserve. Here is the video if anyone is inclined:
It went on the block at 2:52:45 in the video.

Thanks for the great comments and encouragement!
