I own a 1980 Turbo Cobra AUTOMATIC with 18,000 original miles from the original owner in all original showroom condition. How many automatics were built, I heard rumors of about 134 or so....

Good lord those TRX wheels suck.

Came on my 83’. I think Michelin is the only company that makes the tire for it.

I remember they were twice the cost of a similar sized BFG back in the 90s. Was cheaper to buy aftermarket wheels than replace the stockers.

That's one rare 1980 Turbo Cobra you have there. Heck, in total they only built 12,052 units from what I see. An automatic with only 18K miles in that condition is a gem.
