Beneath the Aluminum Pedals, you'll find Black Carpeting that continues on into the trunk where the battery is mounted. The previous owner loved taking this roadster to car shows on beautiful days, turning heads every time! The only thing that this Cobra's needs is a driver to awaken this beast!

This Cobra is a thrill to drive and it's also equipped with Rack and Pinion Steering and 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes! It's no surprise that the underside of this Cobra looks amazing like the rest of the car!
