Classic Motorsports Car Catcher: Torino King Cobra Prototype

Date May 8, 2017

Written by Ed Higginbotham

Is it a sports car? No. Is it inexpensive? No. Is it cool? Totally cool. It’s one of two Bud Moore-owned Torino King Cobra prototypes straight from 1970, and RK Motors in Charlotte is selling it right now. The price is dependent on whether you want the “seal of approval”—basically a complete multi-point service performed by the seller. Without the seal they are asking $440,000. Like we said, it’s not inexpensive, but how often do you get the chance to buy a well-maintained classic prototype? Answer: not often.
