Cobra Ned is I think right that it is the Bill Steele Cobra, but looks like Bondurant's helmet, Steele's helmet is different.

There are a number of photos B&W, and color here, 1964 & 1965, of Steele's Cobra and others, some pics of the old man, and Miles

 R model good site !

I had a quick look, didn't spot any images of Bondurant.

CSX 2000 Series / Shelby Guru's required, who's the driver & CSX number
« on: November 21, 2021, 05:09:05 AM »
One for the Shelby guru's. I'd like to know who the driver was in this Cobra, I was told it was Bob Bondurant? If so, what was the year, the race & the CSX number of the Cobra? Was it a Shelby American racing team Cobra or an independent team car & who took the photo? Thanks for any input, cheers.

Hi Dan, would it be fair to say, no 65 or 66 Shelby GT350 was raced in the SCCA in the USA with webers? However a mustang coupe with webers was raced in Canada through Comstock racing?
It would be fair to say no 65/66 GT350 raced in SCCA in the USA back in the day with webers. They were illegal to run in that sanctioning US bodies venue. Canadian venues allowed them and historical documentation indicates that the Comstock team car used them . Most likely other privateer cars used them in racing the Canadian venues also.

Gotcha & thanks Bob, cheers from Australia.

Were any 1965 or 1966 GT350's raced with individual throttle body weber induction units. If so would anyone have any photos?

Benny, thanks for this. Excellent. First guess is this is a Gen IIA wheel with the early size holes. Hard to tell for sure.

FYI, I just learned that the first 3 hole wheels were drilled on a drill press. This meant that they were not all uniform from wheel to wheel or maybe on any given wheel. I have seen photos of early wheels with holes that looked a bit off on a given wheel. I could not measure them but it would be great to have that info. The Gen IIB wheels were stamped on a press and the wheel I am getting and the subsequent wheels that will soon be available for sale are stamped using the original tooling and, believe it or not, original wood from the original inventory. They will be more uniform. I received the first wheel a couple of weeks ago and the workmanship was superb but it was damaged in shipping so I am waiting for another. I will be at SAAC 46 with the new wheel if all goes well.
I'll see if I can obtain a current photo of the steering wheel from 5S113, the car is still in Australia.

Sports Car World Magazine March 1966. A 1965 Shelby GT350 arrives in Austrailia, there's a probability the car is 5S113 but it's unconfirmed.

I'm 6s843.  I wonder where they respectively squatted on their rubber back at the Imperial Highway circa early 1966.
G'day Deathsled, could you post a picture of your car so I can forward it to Warren, thank you? Nice to hear you own 6S843, cheers.
