Cobra in action at the 1978 Bathurst 1000
In nicely unmolested condition, this Cobra has build number 361 and remains just as it left the factory, still with the original 302 motor and FMX auto transmission. The engine was reconditioned in 1998 to run unleaded and has done just 5,000 kms since. The car is now showing 178,953 kms on the clock, believed original. A quantity of spares are available by separate negotiation, including a water pump, driver’s doorskin, front suspension parts and hoses etc. To be sold with history and an owner’s manual.
