Ahhhh a 289 Cobra or as I like to call them "AC Cobra". When I was a kid in highschool my brother worked for a guy with a few 289 Cobras, one of them being an automatic car! One of only 4 made (for good reason, but it was cool to have something so rare) and it had side draft Webers on it. This photo may be the actual car, it was white and it still exists I saw it at a Cobra display a few years ago.

Back in 76 or so he sold it for an mind blowing amount of money, $20,000! You could buy a house in the bay area for that at the time!
