BRA Cobra 289
I have owned this beautiful car for the last 19 years but am sadly forced to part with it to release funds for various retirement projects. It runs beautifully and has more than enough power from its wonderfully sounding V8 engine. It is admired by all who see it and a new owner must be prepared to stop and chat! Underneath is a solid chassis primed and Waxoiled - with running gear that has been regularly serviced with many parts replaced. The paintwork is in excellent condition and the rarely used hood and tonneau are immaculate. The powder coated wire wheels are also in very good condition with the Pirelli tyres having a long life ahead of them. It must be thoroughly examined to appreciate this iconic car that beat the Ferraris at Le Mans in 1964 ( a modified version of course).

I have owned this car from 2001 and is has been a lot of fun to drive. It has been looked after by myself and David Akrigg - an excellent engineer at Railside Garage in Crosshills.
