Asking Price Condition
$28,500.00 Excellent




Description: Hate to do this but the Green Monster has to go. Between the economy and a new project, just can't justify keeping it anymore. This is a well sorted out car with a little over 10,000 miles on it. It's reliable and gets excellent gas mileage (23-24MPG) on extended highway driving but can still light 'em up if you feel the need (gas seems to suffer a bit though).

A beauty. Dark green Factory Five MKII roadster, modeled closely on the last few cars sold by AC in England following the closure of Shelby’s Cobra operation in the U.S., this street Cobra includes numerous OEM equipment, reproduction parts, and hand-fabricated pieces. Driven daily except in extreme weather and snow, close attention has been given to making the vehicle as weather tight as an English roadster can be and includes both a hardtop and soft-top. Just a shade over 10,000 miles on fresh motor and drive train. All receipts and complete service records, scrupulously maintained. This is one of a few street-style roadsters on the road, is a hoot to drive, and will turn heads wherever you go. Registered, inspected, and titled in Vermont (all current) as a 1965 vehicle.
