Bob Schiro (CA). advertised it for sale in late '72 with "60. 00 miles. many new parts. $5000. 00" But rather than sell the Cobra. Schiro decided to keep it. In fact. as a car dealer in the Santa Clara area. Schiro acquired additional Cobras as well as Corvettes. Shelbys and other vehicles as new car trade-ins. and 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. while rarely driven.
