This is '67 car #142, unique history.  It was drag raced by Marv Tomkin Ford (they painted a Medium Gray Metallic car white) had the rear suspension modified by Bill Stroppe and sold it after one year.  The photo is the next owner, Dave Frezza, and when he bought the car the dealership insisted he repaint it so he did the custom paint job you see on the car in 1968.

The car was acquired by a buddy in 1975 and he repainted the car the original Medium Gray Metallic with LeMans stripes.  It had 1,050 miles on it (1/4 mile at a time) when he bought it.  He passed away just over a year ago (RIP Denny) and the car had just less than 4,000 miles on it.

Car was sold and the current owner has got it up and running after many years of storage.

Thanks for posting!

I'm wondering if this is a vintage '69 photo or a pre season photo. The Shelby T/A car started out the season running those wide 5 spoke (daisy style?). They switched to Mini-lites (back and forth to the wide 5-spokes) throughout the season. I've never seen a photo at any race events with torque thrusts.

I stand to be corrected, set me straight here  :-\ 1969 season, Revson & Kwech Shelby (blue) cars ?  Jones & Follmer Moore (red, black & white) cars ? Or do I have this turned around  ::)  I think that over the course of the season some other drivers stood in ?
I think both of these photos were at Michigan ? It was the first strictly  all T/A race of the  season after Daytona and Sebring.

The Shelby cars had several drivers and the cars sometimes changed numbers to make it even more confusing. Dan Gurney also ran and so did Sam Posey. The Bud Moore cars were easy. #15 Parnelli Jones, #16 George Follmer.

Thanks Mike,
I have that photo and the two others from the same day dated 5/11/69.
That seems late for testing when the first race of the season is also noted on the same day.

I can't recall a separate thread for the T/A cars

Thanks for the info on the torque thrusts, these early photos, and the VIN.
Great Stuff Here!!!

My notes have 073 listed with its first race appearance on 7/20/69 Bryar Motorsport Park; Loudon, NH “Herald Traveler Challenge Trophy” 
It seems to have been a replacement for Kwech who wrecked 628 at Donnybrooke

I think this is the coolest period photo!!  I would love for this to be 1969 and I'm standing right in the middle of all these cool Fords under those fluorescent lights!!!

Looks like the old Cobo Hall in Detroit, so likely the 1969 Detroit Auto Show.

Thanks for posting!

I'm wondering if this is a vintage '69 photo or a pre season photo. The Shelby T/A car started out the season running those wide 5 spoke (daisy style?). They switched to Mini-lites (back and forth to the wide 5-spokes) throughout the season. I've never seen a photo at any race events with torque thrusts.
    As it was finished at KK . That is "073" the prototype . Note the blue painted spoiler.  Ran '68 Torque Thrusts during testing only.

I noticed the AC cobra photo isn't period. So, who in their right mind would let their vintage Cobra get several inches of snow in it?

Must've been liquored up and forgot to close the top ???

Even if it wasn't vintage, I'd never allow my $45K clone Cobra get filled with snow. JMO

Is that orange stripes on orange or orange stripes on red?
Title: Re: Random car pictures
Post by: Special Ed on January 30, 2018, 10:39:11 AM
Orange stripes over Candy paint . We know who painted the car back then & the original fiberglass doors still had all the original paint still on the jambs & insides & the backside of the rear qtr. end caps (that were never exposed ) had all original candy paint so i left the original paint on them. I have 20 or so  original detailed photos of the car inside underside trunk underhood & interior when it was  candy painted & assembled with complete fiberglass front end & doors & even fiberglass dash along with lexan glass & aluminum grill.

Ed could answer this better, but it looks to me like the car was red (but the orangy side of red) with bright orange stripes.

Of course, the car changed some during it's time racing - it looks like the word "ELIMINATOR" is white in some pics.

Yes phil  big ELIMINATOR orange lettered on top rear quarter at end of big orange body side stripe &  big  ELIMINATOR  orange lettered across top of rear spoiler & we have good photos of all that . This cougar had a unique rear battery tray & trunk floor reinforcement plate under battery tray & was all still in the car when i found it & its different than the  b9 mustangs since cougars have different trunk floors. I also have all the side decals nos & original 4'' mag front mag wheels & tires & austrailia  rh drive gearbox setup was still on the car mounted on outside lh frame rail & idler arm mounted on outside rh frame rail so none of the manual steering was in the way for better header clearance when the big BOSS 429 & 427 SOHC engines were in the car with 2x4 intakes. The 69-70 cougar eliminators were named after dyno don from when he named his 66 67 427 SOHC fairlane he raced had in big 12'' lettered ELIMINATOR on the whole side of that car as he eliminated the competition.

Those are not condemned homes just merely upgraded to West Virginia air conditioning! Many Folks saved on things like housing upgrades so  the children could have bikes etc. The mines offered up a block of lard each week and minimal food for its miners and a good friend of mine worked the mines in that time frame and said the lard was often the ONLY THING TO EAT THAT DAY. :'(

Wow!  Those pictures are awesome!  Thank you for sharing.  Do you know the number of the 66?

Minor detail (not really that important), Oregon's first year of the yellow with blue letters license plate was 1975.  74 would have blue with yellow letters.  The green year sticker would have been 1978 or 1982.  With a two year registration that puts the photos in 1976-1978 or 1980-1982.  Not trying to pick, just trying to help.  Awesome pictures!!  Again, thank you!

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the comments, wonder where 5S140 is today?

I thought the Oregon yellow w/ blue letter plates started in 1973? Gary Werner told me he had taken these photos in 1974, this other photo seems to verify that...

Dave,

Well your photo pretty much puts it spot on, it is hard to argue with that.  :) Great picture!   When I bought plates for my 66 Mustang last summer, I talked to these guys. http://www.oregonplates.com/ (http://www.oregonplates.com/)  They have the history of Oregon plates on their website.  http://www.oregonplates.com/history.htm (http://www.oregonplates.com/history.htm)  That is where I found my information.  Actual month the change over occurred could have been before '75.  At the end of the day it doesn't really matter, but just interesting. 

Yes, where is 5S140 today?

Do you know any information about the white w/blue stripes 1966 GT350 with yellow Oregon plates in one of your earlier pictures?

Thank you, Brian

Brian,

No, I was wondering about the white 66 myself but don't know any more about it. The license plate reads 'AHP 671' and the bottom frame says. 'Get It On'.

Interesting car, not even sure it is a GT350. I don't see a tach in the photo, it doesn't have a hood scoop, and the steering wheel appears to be a black standard Mustang wheel.

Sometimes I forget about how influential ALL of these cars were. Considering in the overall scheme of things how small a number they were made in, that is just amazing.

I totally understand why Corvette racers tended to cry when the Cobras showed up.

I remember a "journalist" remarking to me that he was shocked when he found out that there were only a few "Coupes" made. He always thought there must be hundreds of them?

In their own small way they did change the world to come. I suppose that they still do?

Nice to see stripes and steels instead of Cragars on the '65!
The rims on the '67 are not something I've seen on a Shelby before.

Good stuff, thanks for posting!

Each convention had it's own topic, but since they were annual events they were broken down by years. Seems to me there were a few odd events that made their way into the mix.

Post by: shelbydoug on February 08, 2018, 09:54:11 AM
Much of that was posted from private photos of past attendees.

With the stability and speed that the new server is providing, those are sure to be reposted. Perhaps backing up the entire Forum might be a consideration in the future. When there are several hundred if not thousands of pics to re-post, there could be lots of avoidable repeat work to do?

Some of those picture rich posts were huge.

This one is a GT500, Ford FE. You can see the front tubes of the HOOKER race headers hanging down like gorilla knuckles. Those are 2-1/4" primary tubes and only 20 gauge steel. They rattle the cage just a little?  ;)

Some have asked me about them and I thought I would just take this opportunity to point them out while they are being applied correctly!  ;D

kjspeed, on a Quebec forum I found some info on this car, it was used by this reporter, he traded it for a Corvette. Later they are saying the car was used in some criminal activity, and shot full of holes on a bridge in Montreal. Don't know what happened to it ?

Pete has all the details, but basically that is a '67 Mustang mocked up to look like the upcoming '68 Shelbys. Print collateral and marketing materials had to be created before actual production began, so prototypes like this were created so that photographs could be taken.

Just for added context, I will post he entire ad. This is the left hand spread, that contained the Shelby.

Ok, so still, what do you physically see that makes it a 67? that's what I meant, what is the tell-tell item that shows it's 67 status.

I'm not as up on ID of detail items as you guys are, I'm just learning. I seen the marker lights on the quarter panel and front fender and assumed it was a 68.
Title: Re: Random car pictures
Post by: shelbydoug on February 10, 2018, 07:14:50 PM
It isn't what is seen, it is what is documented. It is essentially a '67 "engineering car". I don't know the serial number. I'd have to ask Dave Mathews.
Title: Re: Random car pictures
Post by: propayne on February 10, 2018, 07:29:12 PM
One of the outward signs that it is a '67 are those ten spoke wheels - those fit over the '67 disc brakes but would have not cleared the larger '68 discs.

Essentially all of the production '68s came with steel wheels and hubcaps, except a handful (3?) that were exported.

10 spokes fit 68s with a small modification. I never saw any paper work stating the issue but it is likely that it was Ford who didn't want to warranty that?

Good chance it was the results (what is left of the car) after the rescue or removal of the passengers and driver not what it looked like after the crash.  Have done similar on a number of  occasions. If you notice the picture is staged - doors nicely stacked up to the side, roof not in the picture, indication the car may have been pretty rusty in areas


If this is a result of an impact or car wreck  the possible age of the picture may suggest that it was taken before fire departments started using tools like the Hurst "Jaws of Life"  In some locals in those days guys would connect wreckers to panels and parts and ripe the car apart on scene ::)  Not something I ever took part of

The chassis was from their Willys. The same thing happened with the "Ohio George" 33 Willys, Ford said if you are going to have Ford sponsorship you need to be running a Ford body, George was running a "Cammer" by that time.

I am really surprised at the amount of period "drag strip" photos of the cars.  I feel like an outcast because I have and continue to drag race mine.

You're no outcast...just a true diehard!
I would love to show up at a track and see a genuine Shelby run the quarter.

"We" always knew that they were out there. It's probably just the Internet that has made them find-able. These folks probably still never heard of SAAC? Still lots of blank spaces in the Registry.

I would love to go, but being on the opposite coast makes it tough. I don't fly well these days with inner ear disorder.
I'm sure SAAC 43 will be spectacular with everything we're hearing.

FL SAAC TONY,
What is your connection with the car in the photo? This Shelby was at SAAC 9. This photo was taken around 1981-82, the Torino that you can see in the left of the photo is a 1971 Torino Cobra it was powered by a 351. The street is Redmond Ave in San Jose, Ca. The intake on the Shelby is a "tunnel wedge" with two Holley 660 center squirters. The engine in the Shelby is a 427 with a 428 crank (454 ci) with a C6. The Shelby HAD steel flares all around with Centerline wheels front and rear. There was also a matching 1968 GT500 with steel flares, although the flares were slightly different on the '68 500, it was last know to be in San Marcos, Ca.

I had nearly bought each of the GT500s at one point. Both Shelby's were modified by a previous owner that had owned both cars in Los Angeles. I do not know what happened to the '68 Shelby but the '67 was reported stolen (not recovered). Unfortunately I do not recall the serial numbers of either car. I have photos of the '68 Shelby and I do know the names of both of the cars owners at the time.

How awesome is this picture?!?!  Man, that 67 REALLY looks tough with it's complete setup.  I can only imagine what that thing would sound and drive like.  Its kind of a shame that we've seemingly moved so far from day 2 setups now a days.  If I saw a 67 like this, I would buy it and run it just as is.  I truly appreciate the day 1 look...and, there's a sinister side of me that longs for the days that this pictures represents.

I would call this "Day 2 Period Correct".  Hey Jim C., can we add another category for SAAC Judging?  I have an idea... ;D

Thanks for sharing!!!

That is odd!

That oval grille opening appeared as early as November '64 at the Nassua speed weeks. The only earlier photo I have in my files is from Sebring in March. It shows a normal 289 nose.

These Mustang "corrals" were set up at different track along with the Trans AM races. We can see the Chevy Rig in the background.
In 1968 The corral was at Bryar Park. In 1969 it was at Watkins Glen. I'll have to look for where it was in 1967 or might have been.

We know there was a parade in Bridgehampton with the White '67 GT500.

I don't think so. Shel was all grey by then. I never saw him "chunky". It was always like he forgot to eat again. Typical of a WWII pilot. Tall but slight of build.  Even so, that's a great frameable pic.

I think they dropped it while unloading it in Asia.
Here's a good article with pictures.

That’s nothing .. Around 85 I was surf camping at San Miguel in northern Baja Mexico when I heard a rumble late at night and saw a familiar set of taillights roll through the dirt parking lot...When I woke up in the morning my suspicion was confirmed when I spotted an early 67 350 parked at a camping spot...I went and talked to the 2 guys and 2 gals with the car and,get this ..It wasn’t even their car ..Their buddy loaned it to them to go camping in...It was kind of ratty ,but still...those were the days when a car could just be a car...simpler times .....

Never understood how someone can let a Shelby go this far!! Or any vintage Mustang/Shelby for that fact!!

  These people got to know the value of these cars when they're restored. But there is a "point of no return" as to when they think they have an investment, but then the old cancer (rust) gets too far into the meat of the metal and then they're not worth 2 cents (in a matter of speaking) :o

I've had my eye on a red 67 FB 289 car for about 12 years now. I go to see it 2 times minimum a year for at least the first 3/4 decade. Don't go too often now cause it's sitting on the ground (with inflated tires), from all the freezing and thawing to where it's no good now, maybe parts only....

Usually the man was there most of the time, and was very low spoken always with a smile, but never wanting to sale. He never really gave me a reason why, just "wasn't for sale". 

I'd even pull up with my 69 Mach on occasion and mention to him that I'd like to save the 67 and make it look that good (and be pointing at my Mach), Nothing though, just smile and under soft spoken words, "not for sale".

Haven't been in over a year, No need now :(

First off we have no idea of when these pictures were taken but we need to remember that for allot of people (the vast majority out there) these are just cars. Something to be used and then discarded like an old couch or mattress. 

At points in the past most (if we are to include non Shelby's) were nothing but transportation and all of them had a point were they were not worth fixing up or maintaining, so owners choose to do what they do with unimportant things they once liked but their time had passed.  Scrap yards, poorly stored or yard art....

The vast majority were and still aren't considered a true investment but of course that is another almost endless thread and discussion most of us have seen on forums over the years.

63A               M        2A   30M   844660   7           5              Yes
Ford documentation describes the car as having been delivered to Russ Davis Ford of Covina, CA. The picture shows the car after it was reportedly dug out from a deep tangle of vegetation in 2007. The Shelby body parts are not original. The original engine block for this car is reported to have changed hands in 2003.

Understood and what I was referring to also. Both were possibly $1000-1500 cars at one point. Passed up a fair number of them in running rust free form for $1800 in the day and yes they knew they were Shelbys. But that was just another beater old hot rod or ex rental car

Texas Roadrunner about to eat a snake   ;) that's what the Chaparral bird does in real life. Jim Hall who built those cars, in his early days was with his older brother Dick Hall in business with Carroll Shelby, pic below.

ps: Rich, correct spelling is Chaparral, and the car with the wing is the 1967 2F, which was in direct competition with the Ford Mk. IVs and Ferrari P4s that year.

not sure why Dan went quiet on this?
Black would be very Knight-Rider-ish  ???
Apparently there was very little change in the mid-to-late 80s. Talked to a guy at the [NJ] Optima Challenge in the summer... the car was something like an '84, but it was "dressed" as an '87 IIRC.
The (1989) 20th Anniversary/Indy Pace Car/ V6 Turbo cars were all white with tan and the gold wheels.

The white Firebird in the garage looks like it has the black lower paint treatment. Is that an '82-84 Trans Am?

It was posted April 1st  ;)  there is something weird about that photo, what is under her right arm ? also to me the seat doesn't look right.

shelbydoug, for your interest here's a right hand drive '67 (#500) that sold in Australia in 2006 for $189,000 (Aust. $s ??) I would think. It is in the registry as well.

My first engine builder big Kieth would move BBC-BBF long blocks around his shop stating I don't have time to F... around. He preferred the brute way to move things. This was long before smart phones videos etc, He did that for 30 plus years its hard to tell if a man can carry a 600 plus pound engine around just by looking at him. There are many that can :o Sir would be appropriate.

The RX-8 is a four door disguised in a sports car. Lower insurance according to an owner I talked with recently.

The Saturn coupe (SC?) might be the first mass produced 3-dr car.

In 1998, Saturn had an ad for its three-door coupe. In it, there's a kid playing a tuba in a field. He finishes his solo and - wait for it - mom opens the doors and the tuba fits in the back seat!!

No doubt alot of tuba owners bought the car for that reason.

Sure. That car belongs or did belong to Bill and Bud Jones from Virginia. The first owner added those vents for competition purposes and the car holds the distinction of the only Cobra sold as a separate chassis and body.

In case you don't know, it is the subject matter of the '70s poster, "an adventure in renting - rent and adventure".

I used to be good with the Cobra numbers, like Scudder is but of hand I can't remember the number. It is of course in the "Registry".

It was a regular at club events in the '70s "locally" and I presume that is about the date of that picture.

I haven't seen the car in about 30-35 years.

That is a recreation of Ed Roth's (of Rat Fink fame) "Mysterion".

The original had two 1963 390ci engines and a C-6 brand new from Ford.

The two big blocks were so heavy that the frame kept on cracking so Ed sold the car. It passed through several owners and was eventually parted out and scattered to the winds.

From what I've read, a GM die maker by the name of Dave Shuten built this painstaking recreation.

Hey, does that thing actually run or they just tow it around to show the kids in the peanut gallery?

What else can you do with two boat anchor engines and a bunch of left over tubing, fiberglass and plastic? That was the advanced shop class project right?

Good question!

Plus the Alpines used for at least some of the trickery. I'll try to remember to ask around at the TE/AE convention next month and see if anyone has any real info.

     I have a GAA V8, I'm still trying to figure out what car to build around it. They're a 60° V8, at 1100 cubic inches, 180° flat steel crank, pent-roof combustion chambers, 4 valves per cyl., dual overhead cams, operating buckets over valves, dual mag. ignition, aluminum block & cylinder head construction, all the modern stuff, ala the 1940's;  they're physically larger than the photo-shopped V-12 Cammer.

     I'm not much of a T-bucket fan, but I have been considering installing the GAA in a 1955 Thunderbird I have, it would give a new meaning to the V8 badges on the fenders, and I think I would be one-uping ol' Carroll Shelby in the big engine in the small car dept;............ just haven't found the "adapter kit", you know, the one with "everything" one would need for the install!  ::)

     Randy, yeah, the goal would be sort-of the Rat Fink car look, maybe with a shorter shifter handle thou.    :o

     Side-Oilers , dual two barrel Strombergs, but kinda big! In excess of 500 H.P. @ 2600 (& +) R.P.M.'s & 1000+ ft/lbs torque from just off idle thru the usable R.P.M. range.  Goggle the Ford GAA engine as there is much information out there, and although I enjoy the topic, I'm afraid someone may cry foul, as we may be straying from the thread topic, and I fear not all appreciate dinosaurs.

Well......... maybe not, I couldn't stand the attitudes & B.S. for that long!   ::)

This photo of the MKII getting towed by a bronco is interesting. I'd love to know if there was any other info noted.

I don't think it was taken in France. Before 1046 left the US it did not have the "2" on it.
Comparing that number "2" to the car at lemans it is not an exact match. It must have been taken later.

What a great Facebook page. I didn't have to log in to view it either.

They call this car out as P-1008, reworked to appear like 1046 for a show tour in 66-68, after that it was revised to look like P-1075 the 68 lemans winner.
That was really helpful to answer my questions. So many interesting photos and comments.

HA, it's sounds like they might have forgotten about it, or just got to busy to worry where it was.

That Facebook website said the car was in the UK when the photo was taken. However, with a Bronco towing it and not a Transit van, I would think that photo was taken in the States.

Have owned three - resold two quickly but kept (at this point) my first one.  Challenge IMHO is doing something to the rest of the car that makes the car look complete and flow with the design of the front of the car. Use to keep a registry of them at one point but with so few originals (reproductions were produced/made in the 90's for a short time) not much goes on with them generally speaking.  Front ends have often been swapped from one body to another over the years.

Don't know that car.

As far as liking the front end I think we can all agree that allot of 60's era owners like the stock body look to cars rather than the customized look  that was more popular in the 40-50's but there were plenty of people doing so in the 60's - Ford own Caravan traveling road show included allot of customized mid 60's cars from many famous designers.  Like it or not?  It's IMHO a personal thing but it will gather a crowd and get looks

Front ends ended up on allot of different cars. Some K codes, at least one 65 Shelby and even one of the Grand American (Anderson) show cars - which IMHO was a shame

One on a convertible. This front end was originally on a K code fastback

Choose the color in part because it was the original color of the car though it was silver in the 70's. Also choose it so that the over all look would be subtle sine there were so many things going on with the body

Taillights - wanted something built in so took a 67 GTO taillight panel - narrowed it 6-8" and welded it in. Car as a  Hone-O-driver, custom interior and the engine runs Hilborn injection with an idle circuit built into the engine compartment (two fuel pumps - small fuel bowl and all the routing so the injection will idle - not something a stock Hilborn system does well. 

Car is not so subtle elsewhere :) Sorry for the poor resolution. Poor scan from the magazine article

(http://www.concoursmustang.com/forum/gallery/9/6-221217215044.jpeg)



In the build we left everything off that we could to provide that smooth - sleek look. No interior or exterior mirrors, wipers, door handles, filled in the rear bumper (the license plate cutout in the stock version). It was my last hot rod .... to get it out of my system ;)

Location of that picture was Sears Point many years ago

And I do have the same pictures (think a couple of more) of the one in your last post. On the old forum we had one thread where we posted a number of different cars as part of the discussion

Mine had originally been built in the mid 60's by a local guy. Dad remembered the car around town and I found it in the 80-early 90's. The first installation wasn't ver pretty so I trimmed a bit more from the radiator support, added some reinforcement and changed to a cross flow radiator for clearance. One of the bigger changes was that the original battery box area is situated where the passenger headlight on the front end was. So to clean it up I reversed a drivers side inner apron and spliced it in on the passenger side to give it a cleaner more factory look and moved the battery.

Plenty of things I would do differently if I rebuilt the car today.  When I built it the target was to build it as it could have been built in late 60's (front ends were only advertised for about 9 months) and designed everything to use parts only from that period or custom made parts.  This was a car I built over 25 years ago

They were made by an aftermarket company - well a number of them. Some were sold through the dealerships and parts catalogs as well as through other sources.  Reproductions with the horse shape molded into a opaque/white background were made in the early 80's and packaged then sold as NOS for many years.  Last one I saw was on Ebay  somewhere around 2010. Still being sold as an original from the 60's  ::)

The photo of Shelby on the motorcycle (moped?) is a Honda trail 55 cc. It was the first trail bikes that Honda made. It was the trail 50, you can tell by the double rear chain sockets, one for street and the larger one for off road.  They came with a chain extenior. My older brother won one when Honda of Orlando came to Fla. as a grand opening.

   So far this makes the most sense to me . I don't see a choke cable and it has early pedal pads ( no provision for chrome trim). The ( assumed black) hood is steel , ruling out a GT350 (IMHO)

Looks like it was legal.  Has highway tires and a license plate.  My grandad had a 1927 Peerless Steam Engine....with rubber cleats on those iron wheels and paid a "farm equipment license plate" fee.  He could fire it up (took about 2 hours to get up steam) and drive down the road....to another farm, or in the 4th of July parade, ringing the bell and tooting the steam horns.  the biggest issue was the weight of the engine to get it moved very far.  Took a flat bed ($$$).  But around town....

On the car hauler looks like it could be '55 Mercurys  ? ? front fender profile, and that slope to the rear looks a match ?

I think it has the scoop added. A XR-7G would have fog lights in the front valance and a GTE would have been painted argent from the lower body line down with trim separating it. And no production chrome end caps.

Hey there Honker - sorry, I didn't see your question earlier.

Tinman is on the money - looks like someone added the GT-E scoop to a more pedestrian 1968 Cougar. Though anytime you see that you have to wonder if maybe it is a GT-E with a repaint and the GT-E unique grill and side molding removed. The derelict Cougar in the posted photo has had a repaint plus the end caps that are painted silver or chromed.

As I'm sure most of you know, the G and GT-E scoops are very similar but different. They were both produced by Smith Plastics (A.O. Smith).

Shelby American's involvement in creating a special Cougar began in 1967 with the XR-7S. Whether or not that was going to be a Shelby-branded Cougar is not clear at this point - but eventually the XR-7S was split off into two Cougar models for 1968, the XR7-G (which stayed with Shelby Automotive with conversions being executed at A.O. Smith) and the GT-E which Ford brought totally in-house.

1109RWHP, great pics ! in your post #1069 above, the red #44 Cobra next to the Corvette, is that Jerry Hansen's CSX 2026 ? I noticed the rear bulkhead is drilled for lightness, that's not factory is it ?

Yep   ::) ;D

I actually poked around on the Thunderbird forum about towing [Tiger on open trailer] with our '65 when I first bought the 'Bird... was told emphatically "No", and referred to the Ford factory info which listed a surprisingly low towing capacity for a 4800# car with a 390-4V. I guess the unibody and comfy ("squishy"?) suspension were not the best set-up... possibly cooling issues as well. (Yes, I know that a Cobra is considerably lighter than a Tiger, but that looks overloaded and the trailer likely weighs more than what I had)

I think that I know this Pantera. It was in a "salvage yard" in Atlanta around 1983. They wanted something like $15,000 for it then. At the time you could get an entire new exterior shell from Hall for $18,000. All factory original parts.

I'm not aware of anyone who bought it. It might still be there? The stack of wrecked Gr4 factory cars that I saw were in about 1000% better shape then this thing.

The Cosby Cobra, after it was driven off of a cliff was better too. I'm not sure how a car can get wrecked this badly?

Zoomies were like a reverse side pipe... a long(ish) glass-pack muffler attached to your header collector.  upon exiting the muffler it split into 4 individual pipes exiting before the rear tires.  The tips were typical screw-attched tips; they cam blunt, angled, belled, bent bell... had them with air shocks to get the ground clearance.  I don't recall they were popular for long in the mid 70s up to about the time ready-made custom vans became the rage.

Man, I hadn't heard that name in years.  Brings back memories.  I remember reading in the old Mustang Monthly magazines (80's) about Telstar Motors and hoped one day I could get them to restore our 69 Mach.

I was only in my mid 20's, and thought, at the time, that'd be so cool to get our Mustang restored by such a reputable restorer.

Funny, how a recall of someone's name brings back memories.

So, even early 80's to late 80's still would be a possibilty on the photo  ;D

Let's just say that Telstar was manufacturing it's own data and leave it at that. I don't want to mix it up with the lawyers.

Best advice is to get a Marti on the car BEFORE you buy one.

    I the "last century" when racing was affordable, the "Pros" used ramp trucks for the "tours" . It became a tradition is some towns to "parade" the cars on the open haulers to heighten enthusiasm for the weekend's race. In other cities ( like mine) it was popular for out of town racers to use a particular hotel near a big resort like our Disneyland. The Sandman Hotel ( long gone now) was a favorite hang out as they had a "fort like layout so the transporters could park by the respective rooms for more security. The racers actually enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and were allot of fun to hang out with since there wasn't any 'racing pressure".
     Now days the "entertainment" has blown things out of proportion and teams have up to 5 or 6 semis in some cases ( Force).

The car posted by acman63 is the Daren GT out of England, bit off topic but here's some info and another pic in period. The car was found derelict in Singapore a while back (that's where those photos were taken I think ?) not sure if it's been restored.
I agree that there's a resemblance to the Lone Star, and also the Alan Mann Ford 3LTR prototype from '68

VERY COOL PHOTOS!!!
I'm sure we could narrow it down, but without a name it might be difficult to pin point. We can't see the model either.
Only two Shelby Dealers in Washington State; Metke Ford sold 34 cars and McCollum Motors sold 17 cars. Those number get cut in half if you include just Lime Gold and Brittany Blue. They get cut down in half again when we look at mid year production cars.
Limit those to just 10-spoke equipped cars and were looking at maybe a half dozen cars as possibilities.

EDIT; Looks like a parchment interior. That will narrow it down even more!

I've added Tallakson Ford in Seattle and Marv Tonkin in Portland, Or into the mix with the other 2 dealers.
There's about 45 cars in BB and LG paint from those four dealers.

The parchment interior is the next biggest help, cutting them down to only four cars...

Not that it will help much, but from 1963 to mid 66 there was one type of Washington license plate , in mid 66 to mid 67, there was a one year only plate, non reflective , with WASHINGTON spelled out on the bottom. So fairly rare today, Cory is already hoarding them. Initially, King county in Seattle got the "A" starting letter since they had the largest population , but in mid 66 they had to add another letter because of the growth in King county and that letter was "O" , so this plate was registered in King County. In 1968 things changed, Shelby production went to A.O. Smith and the plates for Washington became reflective.

Hov,
This info is more useful than you thought! As a one year only issued plate, it would seem to support it as the original issued plate to the car. Having it registered in Kings County would support that the selling dealer was likely Metke Ford in Bellevue, WA as the closest Shelby dealer. There was only one car sold at Metke Ford with Parchment interior. It was a Brittany Blue GT350 automatic (210F).

By the way, there were no parchment interior cars sold through Tallakson Ford in Seatle, WA. I also checked the smaller dealers in the surrounding area. They only sold one or two '67 Shelby's and none of those had a parchment interior. McCollum Motors in Dishman, WA on the other side of the state did sell 1 parchment car. Marv Tonkin in Portland, Oregon sold the only other 2 parchment interior cars, but it too was much farther away.

Drum roll please....I think this car is going to be VIN #67210F8U00942. If I'm right, the officer in the photo could be the original owner listed in the 2011 registry. Car number #0942 was listed last month on eBay customized extensively and repainted white.

Totally agreed on the bars on the windows and other things you mentioned. Also, looks like the Comet has radial tires.  Plus, that's a more modern street lamp than what was in use in the 1960s.

If this is from the movie, we will have a grand time pointing out all the things that they missed.

Wedgeman, that is a neat pic of the '68. The sponsor of the car "Maskin Flytiningar" is a company that does heavy machinery moving, the town listed below that is Motala, it's in Sweden, it's about half way between Stockholm and Gothenburg.

Texas Swede might know more.

Wonder if the driver/owner is taking the photo or if the patrolman owns the car??


Someone could trace that plate.....

Another interesting detail of State Trooper photo appears to be that despite (whatever) the age of the photo (may be) the vehicle has already been converted to early style “inboards”.

Biggie,
I don't follow your thought of a conversion to inboards on the WA state / trooper photo.
That is not something I can imagine ever happened.

A conversation to outboards at a dealer yes, but not the other way around to inboards.

That’s kinda what I’m getting at. Photo looks really old but that doesn’t look like an early car for several reasons but has inboards.

Yes, one of our WASAAC members ID'd the location as Martin Way in Olympia.

It would be interesting if one of the WASAAC members would do a little more investigating at the State patrol office, talk to some of the good ole boys still working and see if they remember any information on one of their fellow troopers from the past, I'll bet they have pictures on the wall of fame from past troopers, ect. Show the old picture around, who knows what will turn up...........maybe another Shelby ;)

Biggie, can you state what is in the images that makes you think it's not an early car?

It does look like an early car for a number of reasons - but what is your definition of "early"? 

If the car is as Rich thinks (and I agree with him) that it maybe around #9XX then that is an early car - the first 1/3 or so depending on San Jose build date and SA completion date.  Granted it may not be a very early car with a under #2XX, with angled grille and painted headlight trim rings but the tail end also has the correct early features for a first 1/3 of SA completion cars.

I guess it’s just a later inboard car. I didn’t realize a car at late as 1000 could have inboard lights.
Maybe I jumped the gun.

Yes, inboards run much later than #1000 in the production run

With these WA State car photos the grille emblem is a quick sign of the later, vertical inboard version.
We see the vertical inboard grilles up until about the #2000-2100s.

Couldn't figure out which thread this should go in, can any one tell me what make are the wheels on this "Comstock" Canada, Mustang, I haven't found many good photos of them.

I think they are the same wheels on the Falcon chassis mule.

I don't believe this is 5R096, I think this is the second car the team had, that was referred to as  their Canadian built version. any history on this car ?

#94 is 5R096.....#93 is the Comstock Racing team Ford Mustang Fastback (I think it was made from a former Shell 4000 rally car (1964.5 model)?)  The #93 Mustang has a different hood scoop and front valance as the most notable differences:

https://www.art.com/products/p13594446-sa-i2716697/1965-players-quebec.htm?RFID=990319

The wheels that you are trying to identify are Halibrand #7011 magnesium mags now reproduced in aluminum.  They were option wheels for Studebakers.  Here's the link for the company that is currently re-making them:

kranky & TJinSA, thanks for your replies, I'm pretty sure those are the wheels.

kranky, thanks for the I.D on 5R096, I got confused because the car in my post above doesn't have that bump on the right front corner of the hood, that came later to clear a Harrison overflow or oil tank.

Was there a thread on the old forum on Comstock Canada ? If there isn't one now, maybe I'll start one.

Honker / Mike,
Great photo!!!
What else can you tell us about it besides dated 1968. Where did you find it?
There is something about this gathering event that may be very helpful.

TJinSA,
Thanks for the ID help on the group II coupe. That's the right car!
Here's a link from the "ponysite" with a close up of this exact location and Shelby coupe.
http://www.ponysite.de/67_shelbygroup2_7.htm


Inside the tent on the left, in front of the Mustang II concept car appears to be the George Barris Sony (and / or Cher) Mustang.
The R model look alike appears to be Dick Carter's sfm5019. I think it was a bright yellow by that time.

     Mike ,
          It was horrible and rarely made a full pass Lil John Buttera (rip) had the idea and Mickey always wanted to be the innovator so they built it.  The car was too stiff , smoked the tires , went sideways, had tire shake like crazy and was HEAVY. That is why only one was built and it survived in near pristine condition. The car resides ( for the moment) in the NHRA museum at the Pomona Fairgrounds out here.

I had a Gurney helmet just like that. I used to use it at the high speed events until Eber came and told me the lawyers said it was unacceptable. He said it was a $10 motorcycle helmet (which it was...actually $20 but that included the visor) and they wouldn't allow it unless I paid at least $150 for a certified helmet. I said, but it's a vintage historic artifact? They just sit around the track looking for people to sue.

The events were just more fun back then before lawyers. Now everyone is walking around with a Baby Glock in their pocket. I wonder if the insurance people know about that?

To add: Look at the big glove box door.

Also, is my eyes playing tricks or is the dashpad sculpted?  Sort of convex/concave?

I had a Gurney helmet just like that. I used to use it at the high speed events until Eber came and told me the lawyers said it was unacceptable. He said it was a $10 motorcycle helmet (which it was...actually $20 but that included the visor) and they wouldn't allow it unless I paid at least $150 for a certified helmet. I said, but it's a vintage historic artifact? They just sit around the track looking for people to sue.

The events were just more fun back then before lawyers. Now everyone is walking around with a Baby Glock in their pocket. I wonder if the insurance people know about that?

Funny

Actually Kopec joined in on that too. He said, "do you have a $10 head?" I didn't know what to say? I was thinking that might be the review and opinion of the board? Alieberto probably had some input into that? I always raced what I brung? $10 head and all. ;)

The first group of Shelby team cars have the same rear flares. I think those are CSX 2127, 28 and 29? Didn't Jim Cowles have CSX 2128?

   Joel Rosen was THE guy at Baldwin -Motion Chevrolet on Long Island. He was known for his Camaro and Corvette engine conversions after '67. Yes he did race the 289 Cobra and it was converted to "solid axle" ( 9" Ford rear end from a "thunderbolt") according to period magazine articles. He was closely tied to CARS magazine and wrote many articles for and with them Marty Schorr was an integral part of the Motion operation. they were the east coat equivalent of Bill Thomas race cars out here in the west.
   Doug no one as yet has the vin number of that car. With the 9" diff , it should stick out like  a pink elephant!

A friend of mine who has a XR7-G show unit that was on display at the 1968 Hemisfair in Texas has been conducting research and came across this site:

http://digital.utsa.edu/cdm/

Some of you historians, when you have time, might want to poke around there. I believe there were some Shelbys on display too.

Here is a pic my friend found of his G. It was on display in the Ford Pavilion.

Look to the far left and it looks like a MkIV was there.

 According to the original owner, 282 had a dent in the right fender. The body shop repaired it and painted the stripe back on that section. Don’t know why they didn’t just order stripe from Ford.

Randy,

Here's another view of the same car. I have it in my files as 6S799 at Johnny Bolton Ford - Maitland, FL circa 1966.

Not only does it have top stripes, but you can see they didn't even mask off the vertical hood latch support and the masking was also pretty haphazard above and below the bumper on the drivers side!

I have a larger version of this photo and the previously posted profile photo. PM me for my email address & I'll share 'em with whoever wants them.

I wouldn't be shocked to find they were aluminum and painted though? Factory cheating was at a height back then.

I was there too! I was five and I have a few memories of that trip; looking down at the teeny tiny people on the street from our hotel room several floors up (not sure which hotel), the Sinclair dinosaur, the Uniroyal ferris wheel and going to see the movie "The Yellow Rolls Royce" at Radio City Music Hall (torture for a 5-year old). I'm sure I saw it, but I have no memory of the Mustang.  :'(

Love this picture of the NY Worlds Fair 1965.

I was there!  I don't remember it.  I was in a stroller, most likely with a diaper full of poo.  But at least I can say "I was there!"

Unprofessional roll bar installation, mounted behind the seat rather than through the rear cowl sheet metal. This requires the seat to be in a forward position, and limits the height of a driver. Also, the front bumpers have been replaced with nerf bars. Surely, someone recalls this car.

      Scott.

    Dominators were 6 years behind this manifold. The stage IV, V , and current VI heads came along over ten years later when Chrysler got back into making performance parts. The big gap was due to the push of the Hemi when it was introduced in '64 followed by the gas crunch that KILLED Musclecars and created the infamous K car invasion.

    The engine in the photo is interesting. It has a 390 GT exhaust manifold but also has a (typical) 427 style Airtex fuel pump instead of a Carter pump. The air cleaner height and angle make it look like it does have a C8OE -A intake manifold. Ads "rarely" used a true production as seen here.

Racing strategy aside, it's strange to me that Ford would want to advertise the (what would look like to most people) big block Chevy engine displacement on the car.  An engine Ford never put in any production car.  Where were the marketing guys?

Or, was that a requirement in NASCAR back then?

Mike

   Mike ,
       It was a simple change to a 3.500 stroke crank along with a minute increase in cylinder diameter ( .010) to get the 396 cubic inches. Since these were not "production" engines , the specifications and component parts were not "public" knowledge. The parts were made using "SK" numbers .

427heaven & gt350hr, thanks for the education on that 396 in the Lorenzen car.

Question,  there was a weight advantage running the 396, did he run the fairlane all year ? what kind of power would it make vs the 427, Ford obviously thought there was something to be gained going this route. did it pay off ? I'd have to look at the stats for that year, was it '66 or '67 ?

Mike

quick look up on the net, in '67 Lorenzen ran the 427 at Daytona, won the qualifier, finished 2nd in the 500. did they use the 396 on the short tracks ? I'll dig out my Holmann-Moody book, maybe there's something in there ?

I believe that pic is from the 1968 Sandhill 250 (Rockingham) so the #16 should be "Tiny" Lund and the #15 would be Swede Savage (love that name).

But I bet the tire situation is a similar deal to Gurney and P.J. during the '67 Trans-Am season.

One of these Cougars is for sure an ex TA Cougar, but Bud did build at least one dedicated Cougar for the NASCAR Grand Touring division.

Cougars finished 1, 2, and 3 that day.

Judging by the nose configuration, I think this is an AC Ace ? maybe with an 8, sure has a big pipe on the right side. looking at the dress of the guys, I would say this is in the states.

coming back to this, it looks like the guy on the right is holding a wheel rim, maybe that's what the discussion is about ?

At it's inception, Shelby American was very much a part of the California racing, hot rod and custom scene of the '50s and '60s.

Dean Moon, Dean Jeffries, the Alexander brothers, the Barris brothers and myriad other fabricators, painters, designers, builders and racers all had an impact and influence on each to some degree and you can bet the factories back east were paying attention - along with toy manufacturers and model companies.

It's plain as day to me in the look of the Shelby Mustangs from '66 on - especially '67.

Kar-Kraft even went so far as to hire Mike Alexander to work in their Design Center on Larry Shinoda's recommendation.

propayne, thanks for the pics of the kustoms, the green car, Mercury Comet, or Ford Fairlane ? is interesting, it has a lot of subtle  stuff going on there, It also has covers over the head lights.

Reminded me of these Pyrex covers from Corning, which were a one year only ? dealer installed option, like on these '65s Galaxie 500s. Has anyone seen a set of these ?

Might have had these up on forum 1

Howdy honker -

The Mustang and the Fairlane were customized by the Alexander Brothers for Bob Tasca.

The Mustang was called the "Tasca 505".

Note door handles on the Fairlane and it looks like there might be openings for the exhaust between the door and the rear wheel opening.

I'm not sure of the timing with the Mustang and it's Shelby-like scoop and grill treatment.

Saw a set of those headlight covers at Hershey many years ago. The seller wasn't sure if they fit a '65 or a '66. When I said they were '65 only, he said, "OK, since you know something about them, why don't you buy them?" I asked how much. He let them go for $50, which seemed cheap. I had no real use for them, and resold later that afternoon for $200. I would think maybe they are worth more today.

I've been trying to figure out where this was taken for many, many, years.

Can anyone help with this one?

#97 is John Morton's Lotus 23....the event is the June 1964 Watkins Glen USRRC races (June 26-28, 1964)....that would account for the Graham Shaw Cobra in the photo.  It could not be the Greenwood USRRC event (July 18-19, 1964), because Graham Shaw was still recovering from an accident the following weekend at Lake Garnett (July 4-5, 1964)....Shaw's Cobra flipped end over end and side to side....he had collapsed lungs, several rib fractures and vertebrae and several other internal injuries.

Rich & Kranky, thanks for the info on that photo, I wonder if those cars are at a dealer, or garage in Watkins Glen, or somewhere in the vicinity. some teams utilized these locations. I noticed there is a time clock on the wall behind the cars.

My first time at the Glen was for the Grand Prix in '64, and many visits since, I don't remember the garages at the track looking like that,  all the years have blurred together, but to quote from a John Prine song, "So often remembered, that the memories are worn" !)

Title: Re: Random car pictures

No problem Rich and Honker....if you are able to get your hands on a program....sometimes there are local ads in the program showing "car so and so" sponsored by a local dealer for the event....as in sometimes this logic rings true, but not all the time....which could possibly lead to the actual garage the photo is from.  Both events (Greenwood and Watkins Glen) seemed to use the same numbers #97, #98 and #99).

      That is not a notch back . It is in fact the Tasca A/FX , cammer Mustang driven by Bill Lawton. At the time it ran in the mid tens and the parachute was a class requirement.  IIRC the Italian words meant "follow me" or something like that.

I'm thinking the wrecked 427 Cobra pictured above is CSX3232. Its history shows that it was white, used Sunburst wheels, and was wrecked at night, after a wedding, when the driver came upon an unexpected 90-degree turn in the road. The report said the car slid into a tree on the passenger side of the car, and bystanders suggested the Cobra was split in half. Looking at those photos, taken at night, everything fits the narrative but for the car being split into 2 pieces. Yet if you look at how long the driver's side of the car is in the top photo, and notice where the rear of the hood tray is sitting in the bottom shot, it is clear the car was severely bent and might well have broken in two when the tow truck pulled it away from the tree. Two people died in the wreck, sad to say, and it is likely that drinks at the wedding reception played a part in this, as if anyone really needed another reminder...

Update: Photos of 3232 prior to the accident show the same tires as those in the wrecked shots.

There has been more then one wrecked Cobra. Terms can be debated. I'd consider the term wrecked to be applicable here with little significant debate possible.

Considering what those pictures show, the safest comment is that the current CSX3232 is not the same car to have left SA. In fairness anything can be repaired given enough time and money but for someone even with "credentials" to state that the current car has the "original chassis" leaves me speechless.

It's either a result of complete faith and complete belief in a divine intervention or one of incredulity? At this point I'm not sure which one it is? I need to also consider that the experts comment about "complete chassis originality" might have been tempered by an inhuman amount of beer consumption which apparently was expected from said individual?

If you look at the distance between where the Carb is and the Shifter is, I would have to say the Trans or Bell Housing broke as well.

The wreck occurred in 1968. The car's owner, Jim Cornell, had purchased it just a month before he and a friend lost their life in it. The Registry explains the car's convoluted history, including the fact that the title and parts changed hands and the current 3232 was rebuilt from genuine parts even if they didn't originate with 3232.

I read the Registry footnotes on the car. I know that in a previous discussion you and I had about another car,  not this one. you wanted to emphasis to me, in your own  words. "whatever that car is, it isn't the car that left SA".

I think that is a very fair statement.

Some additional information has been gleaned from the individual who digitized the wrecked Cobra photos. They were published in the Elyria, OH "Chronicle Telegram" newspaper, and described the accident as having occurred on the night of 8/31/68 - a Saturday - at the junction of East River Road with Chestnut Ridge Road in Elyria. Parma, OH, where the owner of CSX 3232 lived, was just 25 miles from Elyria. If this leaves any doubt that the car was CSX 3232, I'd like to hear how. And it further brings into question the story of how the chassis of 3232 was supposedly found in the back yard of a home in El Monte, CA less than 10 years later. Odd how no mention was made at that time of severe chassis/body damage... and the photos beg the question, what exactly was salvageable after this wreck beyond small parts?

A guy on Facebook (who also may be a SAAC member here) contacted me and I put him in contact of the guy who has the prints.

The Elyria, OH "Chronicle Telegram" newspaper allowed a car geek to digitize some of their old photo negatives. He was kind enough to share what he had on the 1968 wreck of 3232. It wasn't pretty. Here are a couple more which show the extent to which the Cobra was damaged. Clearly, no one would have survived this impact.

CSX 3232 was my best friend’s brothers car. They lived 5 houses from where I lived growing up. I have history on 3232 along with other photos. Jim Cornell the owner & driver was just 23 yrs old. He bought the car around May of 1968. The accident did indeed happen in the evening of Labor Day weekend August 31st 1968. The wedding was a dry wedding. Jim was a guest at the wedding.The passenger was a guest at the wedding as well and had just bought a new 427 Corvette. He asked Jim to take him for a ride on the Cobra. This was an unfamiliar road with a hard 90 degree left turn, it was not marked well and was said to have loose stone along the roadway. Keep in mind headlights on any car of the 1060’s were not great. The Cobra was traveling at an estimated 90-100 mph. The car slid off the road while entering the curve into one of three tress in a residential front yard. Both occupants were killed instantly.
 
Two years ago the Cobra came up in conversation with a different friend, he told me his Dad took him and his brother to the wrecking yard where the Cobra was in the fall of 1968 to show them what can happen when speeding. My friend at the time was 13 his brother was driving age. Their Dad’s machine shop was right around the corner from the wrecking yard. Their Dad had spotted the Cobra there. This friend told me the car was in fact in two pieces. This could likely have happened when the car was being pulled out or towed out of the accident scene and or transported to the wrecking yard.

My friend who’s brother owned the Cobra were given a ride when Jim brought the car home from purchasing it. During our summer vacation we would often just hang out in his garage and starts at the Cobra. I remember a set of Blue Dot tires sitting in the garage, a Ford Shifter, and a dual-quad setup on the shelf. The car did indeed have Goodyear Bluestreaks an added fan on the water pump, a Hurst Shifter. A local Corvette shop had added Corvette style side pipes to the car for the previous owner.

This is in fact 3232 in the wreckage photos.

The Registry footnotes acknowledge it. People contemplating purchasing a car would be well off reading such footnotes. It might not matter too much to a buyer. People who buy race cars will tell    you that it's the original car after telling you it was rebuilt reconstructed from a bolt and a vin tag.

The folks at The Cobra Experience are well aware of the car's convoluted history, and the questions that remain regarding its VIN. Fortunately they acquired the car for comparatively little money, back in 1991, and did so in order to have a fun "driver" rather than as an investment. :)

No one is fooled here.

They may actually not be related and it may just be a coincidence. There was talk at one time of people creating "air cars".

One of the problems created by the first couple of Registries, the Cobra version in particular, was that "creative individuals or groups" needed to increase the odds of successfully creating a fraudulent car.

There had always been stories of high numbers of Cobras being wrecked, destroyed and disappearing from the Earth. There were no computers that could be tapped into and no such things as the Internet to gain related data from.  The Registry helped in that regards had substantial blank spaces of unknown cars that had not Nationally been heard of since delivered new and enough information of known documented cars to stay away from.

Most of us had heard the stories and we knew it was more then wives tales. What is particularly disturbing to me is when I hear names that I recognize that were highly respected and trusted as experts and by deduction could only have been involved as knowing conspirators?

Now those names can not publicly be mentioned here because they definitely will respond with "defaming" lawsuits asking for some very serious damage amounts.

The Registries have been sued before for various reasons but certainly one of the reasons is because these folks don't like being uncovered as dishonest swindlers. That makes sense.

Read for yourself the footnotes on various cars. Often many names are mentioned.

You can also deduce who is highly likely to have participated in the reconstruction of the cars. There were only a couple of people in the world that could recreate accurately a chassis or a hand formed aluminum shell at the time. I'm sure that legally they had their asses covered but when you are building a car without even an original vin tag...you know.

CSX3232, might just have been a number pulled out of the air, to recreate, encouraged by a 75/25 blank space Registry possibility and the actual wreck not really know of at the time? Is it a changeling? Prove it. The point of the Registry is caution should prevail?

This is just a discussion of what has already been noted in the Registry. Those pictures are the damaging entities. They just focus new light on an old issue.

Title: Re: Random car pictures
Post by: Cobra Ned on September 09, 2019, 04:16:28 PM
I wholeheartedly agree with the thought that profiteering from someone else's tragedy is abhorrent. But, as the registrar, I had to subvert that feeling in order to present the facts dispassionately but call a spade a spade where necessary. Yes, it is true that many of the same names seem to crop up when cars are being discussed that were apparently created from nothing more than a missing VIN. I make no excuses for the various owners of these cars; I, as much as anyone, sincerely want to get to the bottom of the questions that surround them. I can offer the fact that one of the names often linked to these cars seems to have been in the high-end automotive insurance appraisal end of the business for many years. As such, would it be unreasonable to think that he could have asked various insurance companies over the years if they had any records of cars with CSX2xxx and CSX 3xxx VINS that might have been declared a "total loss" and if a payout was made accordingly? That would be a great way to learn about Cobras that most likely weren't coming back and a follow-up thought may likely have been: what if we built a new one? Does anyone else think this might have been a component part of the creation of a number of the "air-cars" that are out there?

Sure, someone with access to otherwise unobtainable data has an inside edge. So what? What's the penalty?

Under the old registration system a used car can be registered from a bill of sale. Cobras would be very attractive because of that. In NY, that is still the case. Register it here, sell it to another state.

The crime would be in defrauding the State it was being registered in if someone can prove the car is essentially a counterfeit. Good luck on that one.

Who is going to pursue that except a current owner claiming fraud and asking for reimbursement? The only case that I can think of is the Bythewood case. That was pursued by the new owner who thought he bought an SC.

You would need a Federal task force like the RICO squad and they would only be interested in breaking up organized crime.

CSX3232 isn't the only questionable car out there.

Again. The best advice is to read the Registry and be thankful that it is incorruptible. When you see Ned in person, thank him and ask him for his autograph. He eats that up. Don't say anything about Shelbydoug calling him the Scud Missile.  ;)

That's the problem: there is no penalty, as these air-cars were created long ago and the statute of limitations has long expired. But I would like to see the perpetrators - those who committed the original act of creating a car to which they had no legal claim, and then selling it to an unsuspecting buyer - face the music in some manner. They have committed major fraud and screwed over a LOT of people in the process.

  "When you see Ned in person, ask him for his autograph. He eats that up."

Bo and Luke Duke; Dukes of Hazzard. The girl in the photo is their sister Daisy. Very popular show from the late 70's-80's with the famous Dodge Charger with #1 on the side and with the confederate flag on top. The charger's name was General Lee.

A friend of mine worked for Warner Bros on Dukes. He was in the transportation shop and built/rebuilt/repaired/junked many General Lees. 

As that was in the days before repro parts for Mopar B-Bodies, the Warner Bros shop guys like my friend regularly raided the local junk yards and pick-your-part lots.  By the end of the show, there were virtually no B-Bodies in parts yards in the greater Los Angeles area with suspension parts and front clips still on them.

I'm more appreciative of the efforts to bring the production versions to market because of them.

The Deora was designed by Harry Bradley and built be the Alexander Brothers.

As I've mentioned on other threads, Mike Alexander worked at the Kar Kraft Design Center.

This photo of the Deora is from the Pat Ganahl Collection and is scanned from my copy of the book; "America's Wildest Show Rods of the 1960s & 1970s".

It does look like in this photo that the windshield, A pillars and roof are one piece.

Why do vaguely remember my Deora Hotwheel having a blown Hemi sticking out of the bed floor?

As beautiful as it is, my guess is if it able to run on it's own, my guess it would have to be a small 4 cylinder like the Ford V4 Saab put in a lot of their small cars.
Title: Re: Random car pictures
Post by: propayne on September 24, 2019, 08:16:07 AM
According to my various books, magazines and vintage show car programs, Harry Bradley designed the Deora for Chrysler while working at General Motors.

It is a modified 1965 Dodge A100 pickup that (probably due to corporate orders) retained it's slant six engine that was modified with twin carbs, etc. I've always understood that it runs and drives. I think that was a part of it's purpose.

It won the Ridler Award when it debuted at the 1967 Detroit Autorama and was included in the original first-ever batch of sixteen Mattel Hot Wheels cars.

None of the Deora Hot Wheels cars that I ever had (or still have) had the engine poking out of the car anywhere.

Interestingly, Bradley was hired by Mattel to develop the Hot Wheels line. When Mattel owner and Hot Wheels creator Elliot Handler wanted to include the Deora in the initial Hot Wheels offerings he wanted to add the surf boards to create some visual interest. Bradley strongly objected and was almost fired over the matter. In retrospect, Bradley thinks the surf boards were the right decision and considers the incident a good lesson on getting out of your own little groove and thinking cross-culturally - in this case the hot rodding culture and the surfer culture.

427heaven, thanks for posting I think the car in the back ground is a French Simca 1300/1500 ? has an F (France) on the back.

Here's another shot of the Corvette, Carroll looks worried, and Roger Penske, second from left, isn't to forth coming to Mile's questions.

The Gran Sport picture must be before or at it's first race because it does not have any vents in the hood. They had a lot of trouble with front end lift and ended up with vents everywhere.

Wayne Curry towing his 68 GT500 with his 4 speed KR sometime in the early 80's I think. Probably to drag strip. This is same car I think he towed CSX3201 to SAAC 3 in LA from Illinois!

Wayne's 68 GT500 on left, CSX3201 center, and KK1660 (which I now own).  I believe KR tow vehicle is in background along with 6S663 (I think)

Wayne passed away 11/13/1999

Title: Re: Random car pictures
Post by: SFM6S087 on December 24, 2019, 12:34:33 PM
From the http://CarryoverGT350.com web site:

This picture was taken at Tasca Ford in (or before) April 1966. There are 4 1966 GT350s in this shot – two with LeMans stripes and two without. Left-to-right in this order:

no-stripes…….stripes…….no-stripes…….stripes

Three of the 4 cars in this picture must be carryovers; and possibly all 4.

The 2 no-stripes cars are carryovers 6S052 and 6S159. (see Note 1)

One of the striped cars must be a carryover. (see Note 2)

The other striped car has a 75% chance of being a carryover. (see Note 2)

Note 1.  According to the Registry, 6S052 and 6S159 are the only two white, no-stripe, 1966 GT350s that were delivered to Tasca Ford in time for this picture.

Note 2.  The two striped cars are from this list: 6S091, 6S118, 6S146, 6S216 and 6S327. These are the only white, striped, 1966 GT350s that were delivered to Tasca Ford in time for this picture. Note that 4 of the 5 cars on this list are carryovers. That means that 1 of the striped cars must be a carryover. And that leaves 3 carryovers and 1 regular production 1966 GT350 to vie for the final spot. Which gives a 3 out of 4 possibility of that car being a carryover – a 75% chance.

Fun stuff!

If you have any more info about this pic please post here or send me a PM.

Like ours is an "H" code 2 barrel 69 Mach 1, and Yes it is single exhaust.

The Mach pictured is a single exhaust Mach, you can see the tip right under her feet. My Mach is the same exact way.

From what I've read over the past 20 yrs,  the "H" code was the base Mach 1, not a special order.

Fiat and aluminum body set on the Fiat steel pan/frame, and you don't realize how small the car is until your standing next to it, hence the "Double-Bubble" roof arrangement.      ;D

Yes, I think you are right. I removed the 5.66 gears from the rear diff, transmission was also a crash box. Found some low 12 second time slips in the car. The car was getting its rods stretched for sure. Would enjoyed seeing the car run back in the day, it will be running again soon.

I do not think they are the same car, since the photos of 2157 show that it had the narrow flares and 5 1/2" wide wire wheels from the factory, while the car in the yearbook photo has the later style.

This looks like it might be Jeff Burgy and his wife.  I am going to guess it is 6S1206.  If it is, I drove this car back in circa 1985 when if was for sale for $9000.

In the image below, the car was actively being campaigned in local autocross.  It was not in storage like the "Bring a Trailer ad description says. I am not sure the owner at the time knew the car was an ex-rental or not.  I can't remember either.  You can see the car's heritage as a GT350H was obscured by the absent gold stripes, replace with blue and no "H".  When I drove the car, it was quite impressive, further cementing my desire to get a 66 GT350.  I passed on the car because of the rust the Bring a Trailer ad talks about.  The car looks great now and I hope to see it running at a vintage race event again.

I looked through the registry (4th. edition) couldn't find that name in the lists of owners. Looks to have a sponsor decal on the

front fender.

no shirts required as well as helmets  ::)

The Cobra photo above suggests that the photographer was Shepard (see lower left corner). Looking quickly at the Princess Blue 289s with red interiors, few were in or around the Kansas City area. But there was one, CSX 2305, owned by Dr. John Johnson, and he was known to autocross the car and enter other speed events. While there is no way to say for certain (unless someone who knew him can say, yeah, that's him driving) I'm going with the car pictured as possibly being 2305. However, I now note that Johnson's car was given chrome wire wheels and lacked a luggage rack. So the only other car that immediately comes to mind is CSX 2205, which was a sales promotion Cobra for the Kansas City sales district. And it had the rack, painted wire wheels, and a radio, which the car in the photo seems to have if the blurry lump at the right rear of the cockpit is an antenna.

I just done the 1966 to 2020 dollar difference from then to now.
$20,000 in 1966 is equal to $161,000 today. So now considering that it was just a race car back then, FF to 2020 and it would still be just a race car in comparison, the $$ is about right.

The GT350 of $4530 in 1966 is equal to $36,500 today.  So, thats about right since we know that a new car in 2020, like a Mustang GT is close to that dollar range of $36K, keep in mind that the 66 GT350 is still just a car in 1966.   A 2020 Shelby GT500 roughly about $72K in 2020 to me is over time buying the Shelby name and the reason for the price upcharge.

  Sun roofs: The one on the coupe looks very much to be an ASC sunroof.  Dealers had to have the car shipped to ASC to get the sun roof installed.
  The fellow who painted my 67 GT 350 back in the 1980's had a 68 GT Mustang Fastback with that roof.  Turns out the car was eventually turned into a drag car and ran with a group called the Chicago Outlaws.  I haven't seen the car in any advertising for the past ten years.

It's not as if there has never been a green 427 Cobra with a red interior...but it wasn't factory, and it didn't stay that way for long.

The yellow visors really tie the whole thing together...

Here's a new project for Richstang and anyone else:  Identify those boys in the above iconic 1967 photo with CS. 

I would guess that the boys had some direct connection to Shelby employees, or friends of employees.

Each one of those guys would undoubtedly still remember that memorable day and photo.

68krrrr, thanks for posting, that second shot with the snow, looks to be in Europe, you can see the tag on the front of the Bronco.

Side-Oilers, spoiler for Richstang, better view of those kids, and all the cars, they might have been employees children, an early

Circa 1976. A picture of my car, 6S281 on the right. 6S282 on the left in Albuquerque New Mexico where they were both sold new at Richardson Ford. My buddy David bought 282 from the original owner, we were quite shocked to find they were consecutive serial number cars. I would love to know where 282 is today.
Hi 282 is now in Monaco.

   (Sorry , late to the party)     Those are HURST wheels. This was an ad from back in the day for the wheels. Yes they look "similar" to '65 wheels but different if put side by side.

Black 68 vert I'm sure is Wayne Curry's(RIP) old car, I will have to look at old pics and see what the license plate # was.
Stroked 427 Tunnel Port, he drag raced it with big slicks & aluminum slots. If those are IL plates I bet it is.
Especially with the 10 spokes blacked out. I have pics of myself along side of that car in my black 68 fastback on drag strip somewhere.

pic could be from Tulsa at drag strip??? In fact that is probably his 4 speed KR "tow vehicle" in front!

This is(was) Wayne's, (#326) on the way to Charlotte for the Mustang 30th in 1994. Somewhere in the Smoky Mountains, 4 of us in car so no room for a spare tire!!

Car had something like 275xxx miles on it. Supposed to be Silver Jade, somewhere in Louisiana last I heard about it.

I was running 11.60s with basically stock 428CJ with LR 2x4 intake and a big solid flat tappet cam. Really good converter and 4.57s. Pump gas, drove to & from strip most of the time. Runs decent for what it is! Still have car.

Wayne was running low 11s, 427 TP with C6 and a lot of gear. RIP Wayne, thanks for the memories buddy!!

good, simple times for sure!

1st pic is CSX3201 with the black drag raced 68 GT500 on the left and KK1660 on the right. Second is a pic I took at a local Mustang show before I met Wayne around 1980-81. Note the plate, WC3201. 3rd is me sitting in it (barely) in 2016 a few hours before transport picked it up & took to CA. (widow sold it)

She wore the 1st 2 piece that I remember seeing. Ironically my brother mentioned her a few weeks ago and reminded me that I saw her topless once but he missed it.  I don't remember that...??? (I was a kid) :-[

She comes to a car show on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in a town called Ridgley every October. It is a great show. Richard Petty is there every year signing autographs as well.

Is that a Snoopy Fairlane?
Because the Snoopy 65-350 still lives in MASS.
Same people?

Definitely "Snoopy", and sure looks like a Fairlane (and we would have ridden to the track in a '63 Fairlane). Any other recollection of that day is pretty fuzzy.
That was likely my first ever trip to the drag races, I talked my Dad into taking me and some of my 7th grade buddies. Sorry for the bad pix.
I think (?) remember the Snoopy 350 from SAAC40 in the ballroom, but have no idea if there's a connection.  It is a pretty simple ride from MA to Cecil County... straight down I95

There appears to be no connection between the Snoopy.
I just reached out to Snoopy in MASS and it was new to them.

Isn't Snoopy also known as "joe Cool"?  8)
i guess no surprise he might show up on few cars.

This Comet (seen 2019 at same track) must be a little older?

Yeah, kinda strange to use wagons, but I've seen quite a few.

Thanks. The color shot is from 2019 even tho it looked like 1971 in the staging lanes for a while  :o, there was a vintage Stock/Super Stock group sharing the track on a day that I was there with a different club. Those cars were fantastic. The Thread says "random"... it didn't seem like a time-frame limit(?), so here are a few more.

Stock classes had to run an engine that was available for that make/model and station wagons back then could be had with big engines for towing, etc. plus they were readily available and I believe they had a better weight distribution for stock class drag racing.

Thanks, and now that does sound familiar.
A guy that I used to autocross with sent me an article [a few years back] about a Pontiac wagon that he had raced back in the 70s - pretty sure (IIRC) that was why he said they ran a wagon  :)
