First off there is no car as ugly as you guys portray and this car was Exner Sr attempt at what a Mercer roadster would look like if they had stayed in business. The only reason the Cobra name is tied in is because they needed a frame and bought CSX2451 and a 289 Ford engine from Shelby to have this one and only Mercer built which makes it part of the Cobra history. In the 3rd picture posted you can see a Studebaker, Chrysler, and a Dodge all designed by Exner that actually went into production. Thanks Ron
