They can be restored to the same level, it just takes, patience, time and $$$$.

A question for this laconic forumasking for opinions on why 1 apparently well restored 427 sells for $2.2m and another apparently well restored 427 no sales for $1.2m.....? Thoughts? Comments?

You would have to pour over the history of each car and then inspect each car in person (or have a knowledgeable inspector) in question for negative or positive attributes, was the car ever converted to S/C specifications, accidents, how original does the car present itself (hoses, clamps, nuts and bolts, etc, etc). After doing your research then you can then start comparing one cars value to another.

I noticed that trunk photos were not included in any of the advertising. Did anyone happen to get photos of GE trunk areas of the Cobras that went through the auction? I would am especially interested in photos from 2416. Thanking you in advance.

Basically all the “Stage” race engines received the engine shops attention, balancing, blue printing, degreed harmonic balancer, oil galley modifications and cylinder head work. As I also stated previously you could get a 1x4V or 2x4V induction system as an option installed on a stock 289HP engine as a option. The “Stage” race engines were primarily the same with the exception of the carburation, this is where the “Stage” levels were determined. If you ordered a competition engine with all the “goodies” but only opted for a 2x4V carburation system it was still regarded as a “Stage II” race engine.

Basically, the stages depended mostly on the carburetion system that was ordered with the engine, with the Stage III being the highest horse power available and it having the Weber 4x2V intake manifold system. The next highest HP engine was the 2x4V (Carter) intake manifold system and the last being the 1x4V (Holley) intake manifold system. All of these were based on varying degrees of preparation except the Weber 4x2V equipped engines which were only available in a full competition form. For example, you could order your 289 Cobra with s 1x4V intake system, a 2x4V intake system installed on a stock 289HP engine or have that 289HP engine race prepared to become a Stage I or a Stage II respectively. The Stage III was only available as a fully prepared racing engine and was only available with a Weber 4x2V intake system. It is also noted in the catalog that depending on the “Stage” of the engine build that there were different camshafts available with a listing for a “roller” camshaft for the Stage III engine, this has been suggested as being false because of the various racing organizations rules governing “roller” camshafts. Also just because a Cobra May have been ordered with a 1x4V or 2x4V intake system doesn’t mean that they were a Stage I or Stage II equipped Cobra, it would have to have been specified as such when the Cobra was ordered new.

Sounds like you are in a dilemma, are all three cars on ciderblocks in the front yard? We could always work out a deal, one car for doing two sets of tires? We will provide the tires at no charge to be fare.

Look for the “O E CO” stamping.

Actually these manifolds were manufactured by Offenhauser Equipment Co., there should be a very small “OE Co” stamp on the bottom. The machining process is also consistent with the processes used in period. There are also casting characteristics that are consistent with known originals in my possession. I am not aware of Blue Thunder reproducing this particular type of manifold, they did reproduce the early “opposed” style manifold.

I have a roll that is dated from 1962, not sure of the application either.

Looks like an early example, no side vents and 5.5” chrome wire wheels.
