A 1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra with mileage of 1,609 kilometers was sold for $ 165,000.

A few days ago, the original 1969 Ford Fairlane Cobra was sold on eBay. Despite its impressive age, the mileage of the car is only 1,609 kilometers. This “time capsule” was purchased for the unthinkable $ 165,000.

Only two people owned this car. The first owner purchased this Fairlane Cobra in 1969 and only in 2013 did the musclecar find a new owner who stored the car in a heated showroom.

The car body is completely in the factory paint saturated red. Original Goodyear Polyglas tires are shod on wheels, and 1969 paper floor mats can be found inside. The car was sold with a full set of all necessary documents, a warranty card and even an original order sheet from the Metro Ford dealership. The original Cobra mint jacket was also attached to the muscle car.

Looking into the salon, you can understand that the car was purchased in order to sell it profitably after many years, because there are still protective films on the seats. In the trunk of the Ford Fairlane Cobra are decorative elements for wheels that have not been installed.

Under the hood of the car is a 7.0-liter 428-cu with 335 hp. This Fairlane Cobra also has air conditioning, power steering, a radio, disc brakes and even bucket seats.

Even by modern standards, this muscle car is still fast, because according to the “passport” it accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in just 6 seconds, and it travels a quarter mile in 14.6 seconds. In real life, the Fairlane Cobra could accelerate to 100 km/h in 5 seconds, and a quarter could be passed by an experienced driver in 13 seconds.
