U need 2 black top photo gaskets  not the mr gaskets type

Two on the bottom and one on the top of the spacer between the spacer and the carb?
Or like I have now, one at the bottom between the spacer and the intake, and one between the spacer and the carb?

Thanks in advance,

Bill

Check the spacer. The reproduction for my 68 was not flat. I used a large flat file to get it flat. Mike

Sand paper on a pane of glass is also a good way to get flat surfaces.  :)

Checked on a the glass table in the house, SWMBO was not amused  ;)

Starting my carb reinstallation, have the Felpro installed above and below the spacer now and have a wonderful vacuum leak (high pitched whine). Thinking my custom cut MrGasket picture below might alleviate the vacuum leak. All to be installed dry I assume as that is what I am used to. Or is there a proper part number I have yet to stumble across that will work without custom cutting?

Yup. This is old news with Shelby. The Cobra form was deeming, "in the public domain" somewhere back in the '70s when "replicas" started showing up.

Ford was somewhat successful in licensing many of their trademarks and then Shelby followed that with licensing his name, but the Cobra was a done deal.

Part of the issue with Shelby and the Cobra, also had to do with the fact that Shelby used an existing chassis and body for the basis of his car. The AC ACE body and the Cobra body were too close to one another at the start, as such, the court ruled that it was part of the reason why the trade dress was denied in a wholesale fashion.

Appeals / Re: Marti Report v. Dealer Invoice
« on: February 01, 2021, 08:38:42 PM »
Looking at a '71 Boss that is equipped with ac & power windows.  Both look bone stock original and the dash is not chopped.  The Marti does not list either item as being ordered with the car.  What are the chances the dealer invoice would be different to reflect those 2 options.  Or, are Marti's reliable in that respect.

Can't say I've ever seen a 71 Boss 351 with factory AC

Is the engine code an "R" ?

were panel date codes stamped in with hand stamps or pressed into panels?

Date codes were pressed in at time of stamping.
