I have owned 3 – 3000 series Cobras and several Superperformance, and a few Backdraft Cobras. When I saw this 4000 series car I bought it and didn’t care if it had a branded title. I bought the car from an insurance company. It looked like the original owner had got too close to the curb and broke a piece of the fiberglass on the very lower right front fender. The broken piece was with the car. There was no suspension, frame or cooling damage. The oil cooler was bent so it was replaced. The lower piece was glassed back in with the original type of glass. The car can be inspected on a hoist at my facility. I have seen 4000 series cars run $130,000- $200,000. The price reflects the branded title. The title is a clear Iowa Dealer title now that says prior salvage on it.
I feel I am very knowledgeable about cobras, and I assure you the car is very nice and an exceptional price if you can live with the title situation. If you have any other questions feel free to call me.
