I think depends on buyer.

The explanation is merely this.
Assuming we are talking non factory SC car.

  A.  Were a potential buyer looking for a car that they don’t want to fiddle with. Or don’t want to have to take off the Paxton based on whatever their personal preferences are,....then they might pass. Or might want to pay less.  They might feel it’s too much work to remove or maintain etc regardless of whether it “is” or isn’t.
     Perhaps one is buying a concours car then not correct and then same as above.

  B.  For certain buyers it’s fun and a bonus or a neutral.

It is a bonus once the potential buyer takes a test drive and pushes the right foot down.  8)

It would be a bonus for most of us especially if it was period correct pieces. Something like dating a SUPER model is stats like 36.24.36 a bad thing? To most its not a problem but to some they love the 300lbs of fun or possibly the 79lbs skinny minney. Good thing there is something for everyone

+1

Set up right they are a blast, period correct looking Paxton to me is no different than a set of headers on a 67-70 that you do actually drive!

I think depends on buyer.
+1 and what the buyers expectations are. Some buyers will want the extra house power that the supercharger gives and don't mind the modification. Other buyers are more concerned about maintaining it the way it was originally delivered from the dealer when new and look at the mod in terms of how much to change back to stock.

NO brainer to take it off and go bone stock again, so NOT a modified or devalued car.
Most guys have sense when adding one, and keep the stock parts.

Power and WOW factor .
True vintage sets and gauges, >>> good luck finding someone that will part with one.

  When it's YOUR car do what you want. 10 spokes on a '68 is a perfect example, lots of cars have them, almost none had them from day one. Any change you make can be undone. All "I" would do is minimize the holes drilled "if" I took it off later. If you want "bolt on power" that's the ticket.

True about everything being able to go back to stock unless you do a radiator support cutout hole for the filter  can.  Using a cone open filter without the filter canister can avoid the problem.

I do not think they all had units installed with the air cleaner inlet cut into the support.
Think I have some 1960's pictures, Shelby,  where they simply turned the air cleaner down and ran horizontal with the support towards the frame. Fit well.

Either way, there are only a few tricks one can do for the WOW factor and performance, Webers, Dual fours, supercharges, Hillborn , there are a few others I think.
Like gt350R said, be selective with holes.

Well I did once go look at a 69 “Shelby” for sale with a Paxton in 82...Ended up  being a 69 sportsroof ...Guy assured me they didn’t actually make a Shelby in 69..Corrected him by showing him the 69 section in the old SAAC buyers guide..Then he asked me if his price of I think 5k was reasonable(which at the time was like a high Mach 1 price).I advised him “yeah probably to the right guy”(not me I was holding out for a real Shelby)..I guess my  point is,some advice is timeless.... ;D

If said Shelby came from the maker with a Paxton in place; if it was delivered with one on it and there is docu proof, then I would say the cars value should get a + % on the final value over the same year and model that did not. There are quite rare and cars that were delivered with them, should have a premium attached to the value of the car. I'd take one over the same model that didn't have one. Not everyone wants rare items on their cars.

No not all had the hole in the radiator support just typically 65,66 and 67 models 68 and 69 when installed were typically mounted up.

snakebit,
I had help posting the large and small air cleaner pictures, fomoco stamped filters, short and long shaft blowers, colors of blowers, belts, twin Paxton original pictures, small block cobra installation with alum tubing in part, 3 variations of Blower carb chambers, original Paxton gauges and more.
All was lost when the site crashed. Never did have pics of the fuel pumps though, others had posted those though.
Respectfully submitted,
John

Ok, thanks. Maybe someone who has studied these, will post some pics of them and which ones were offered in which years, etc. Appreciate it.
Title: Re: Paxton Supercharger carb bonnet, COBRA and Shelby Big Block
Post by: Harris Speedster on August 27, 2019, 09:17:20 AM
Guys,
I ran into an old boy, geez, guess I am in that group >>>> that has what appears to be a correct carb bonnet top for the twin supercharged BB Cobra, single super charged BB cobra, and a shelby BB.

They are quite unique.
I lost my pictures of the Cobra twin paxton car in a computer crash last week, but I believe they were posted herein saac.
tried searching, but turns into a nightmare for search.

Does anybody have one of the pics from the post, or an """ original picture  "  of Cosby's twin paxton Cobra.
If this needs to be in appeals, will move it.
