Fiberglass mold for a 427 Cobra body, for free in CO.

So my father abandoned a fiberglass mold, that rolls on little pneumatic tires, for a 427 Cobra replica body.
From what I recall it's missing the trunk and door molds but the main body and hood molds are there.
If you can use this or know of anyone who can, PM me and we'll discuss.
My sister is in a bind and will not have room for our father's junk (well, not all of it) when she moves soon.

Just trying to do what I can from 1200 miles away.

Keep in mind, there is no body, just the mold to make one.
If you are a glass man or know a glass man, they would be into it.

In your opinion, what would you value something like this at?
We don't plan on getting money for it, just getting rid of it, but money is always nice.
Especially considering my douchebag ex-brother in law (yeah, I know he's still legally my brother in law) abandoned the idea of having a family with my sister as well so money is always helpful.

Value really depends on the quality of the mold. The fit of the finished parts as well as accuracy plays a big part in the value. If it is a very good mold maybe upwards of $5000 but could be worth not much more than nothing.




Perfect ebay item with an accurate description.

i agree with Mark. Fiberglass is a tedious, time-consuming, expensive and tough job to do.........especially something of this caliber. If it was done correctly, i can easily see value upwards of 5grand......if everything done properly, neatly, and more importantly everything lines up. I have never done a job that big, but i can only imagine how many hours were put into this.

btw, do you have any pics of it?

I don't have any pics here at work and I don't have enough access to eBay it.

The form seems well built on it's own rolling chassis. It looks like an upside down Cobra in a shell, with little wheels on top to roll it around.
