Best offer over $5000.00" It's purchaser Bob Schiro, ob Schiro (CA), dvertised it for sale in late '72 with "60,000 miles, any new parts, 5000.00" But rather than sell the Cobra, chiro decided to keep it. In fact, s a car dealer in the Santa Clara area, chiro acquired additional Cobras as well as Corvettes, helbys and other vehicles as new car trade-ins, nd he correctly speculated that some of them might be worth more in the future. He therefor acquired a warehouse and stored his collection in it. 2047 was repainted with red and white stripes and maintained, hile rarely driven.
