After 9 Cobras in total and 9 years in this one alone, I finally need to step off the Cobra ladder. Maybe not forever, but for now at least. It breaks my heart to sell it, but I need to reinvest in my business.

Built for me by Hawk Cars in 2010 from a Kirkham body/chassis
FIA nosecone
Slabside front arches
Sebring rear arches
Transverse leaf springs front and rear
Girling brakes
FIA Alloys with Avon CR6 ZZ tyres
289 Ford V8 with Weber carb
Ford 4-speed Toploader Gearbox

Polished aluminium with etched twin stripes
Black leather interior
Black Everflex Hood, sidescreens and tonneau

Light competition use, including Regularity Rallies, Brighton Speed Trials, Sprints and Hillclimbs.
Quick-release windscreen with optional aeroscreen
Possibly the most photographed Cobra in UK!
FIA HTP available if required

Price and more details/pics etc. on application but it is a six-figure number.

Wow,

That are very bad news Colin. Wish you all the best with the sale and that it will help you moneywise.

I sold the blue 427 for related reasons in 2011. But as you know I'm driving the yellow 289 since 2016.

I bet for sure that your time without a Cobra will not last very long.

Cheers
Migge
