It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.

Hmm Cobra Mach 1 huh. Must be super rare.

Again a nice car, but not even close to a $30000 nice car. I'm not spending $30k on anything that has a primered bumper.

I hope he gets it Smile

Agreed the black bumper is bad - makes it look unfinished

Not a bad looking car (wish mine was that nice, actually), but yeah - the hood paint is wrong (especially for "restored to original"), and a primered bumper is bad.

Just another case of uninformed seller fishing for Boss 351 money.

I hope it gets sold to someone who knows what it really is and takes care of it... and not some kid who will just drive it to death.

Nope - and since he is sayin' restored the hood should not be gloss black or clearcoat... more like a satin. But MANY decide the gloss is more to their own preference. I always prefered the satin - also 'called' flat or semi-flat because its original and reminds me of similar finishes on most of the factory performance Fords.

Here's what I have shared as for (IMO) the correct hood striping.

I agree with everyone that it appears to be over priced based upon the limited photos and information, also there's the question if it's a Fastback or Mach 1. As pointed out, to be original the hood wouldn't have the high gloss that one has. I had the black portion of my hood painted hot rod black which is a matte black, looked perfect but as I was polishing my car I accidently polished a portion of the black paint which left that portion with more of a sheen the rest. To make it look right even I ended up polishing the whole thing to the same sheen. It now has more of a sheen than it should have but it's far from being semi-gloss or gloss as that one it. Of course there isn't anything wrong with the gloss black, you just can't say it's original.
