This is one of the legendary 289 Cobra's. It is characterized by simple design, lightweight and scarily fast. Many Cobra buffs consider the 289 option more desirable than the 427 because it was more lightweight and more nimble in handling.
Only 654 289's were built with a number of them being written off for racing or hard use over the years. The first 75 cars had the 260 cubic-inch engine installed and later small block cars had the 289 cubic-inch engine with 271 horsepower installed or you could order an optional engine with 380 horsepower.
The current owner is the second owner of the car having purchased it in 1974. It has just over 39,000 miles on the odometer. The car is equipped with the rare dealer installed hard top and radio delete and no heater.
