Why is the lettering on the Billboards different between front and rear?
Looks like the seats can use some padding.
Otherwise, very cool specimen!

Pretty inexpensive for an aluminum body car.
They had an ERA FIA for only $165,000 (or something close to that asking price) a month or so ago.

That does seem like a good price for a very good replica of a significant car in the Cobra's history, and with the Mike Shoen ownership history too.
Speaking of Mr. Shoen, I had reason to speak with him a couple of times a few years back, and what an accommodating gentleman he was to some unknown "colonial" (ie me), contacting him out of the blue

Cheers!
Glen

The first question out of my mouth, is it Streetable? Title? SB-100? I would think for $139K, it's track day only.

Registered for street is questionable as there is no DOT windshield or
wipers. SB100 seems unlikely. Not from CA but I believe one requirement
for SB100 is a "backup light" and I don't see one in the photos.

Photos show a Shelby data plate on the passenger foot box.

It's pretty but for $139K sensors detect something's off Captain.

That car is one of Hi-Tech's masterpieces. If it's the same one I remember, it has been around for a long time and I believe it was used in their advertising as a poster car. Before Kirkhams became the industry high water mark, this was about the highest pinnacle you could buy and build from a Cobra replica manufacturer. Just about every part will interchange directly with an original Cobra. These cars are works of art. Absolutely a steal at that price.

It’s a great HiTech, saw it in person when I was at LMC recently.
It’s a performance motor, race fuel.
Not sure it’s 139k, last I knew it was 199k
I’ll text Peter if that’s a typo.
In NH it would be legal as is, not sure in some states.
I ran a race screen Without wiper for few years.
At 139 it’s a great car as it’s a HiTech and alloy.
At 139 I gotta figure a way to get it. ��

First class car! The body is literally exact as Hi Tech took molds right off 3002! Not overpriced in my opinion!

Its everything a KMS is, this is also a one off. Very much worth it, only big issue for me was race fuel.
Two local race fuel pumps are closed as gas is a issue these days.
I was in at 199, at 139 wow.

Verified its 139k, already have multiple interested parties.
WOW!

The only thing about it that bugs me is the front flares. They’re like the FIA cars and not 3002. I asked Tim about those a few years ago and he said the guy who had Hi Tech build it specified those front flares. I guess he liked the shape better than the 427 flare.
