Found a pic in an online norwegian Photo archive thanks to a hint to other shots. Obviously photographer Ola J. Borge worked for a freight company and may have received or taken himself some shots at DST in the days of the 1964 Ford Custom Car caravan. Amongst them a rare picture of the Cobra on the transporter.

Here is a pic of it during the FCC caravan from my archive.

CSX 2000 Series / CSX ? COB ? at Art Exposition
« on: October 01, 2018, 01:44:57 AM »
At a local art exposition in Germany with icons of the 60/70ies and cars (250GTOs, Miuras etc) worth about 100 million Euro, this Cobra 289 is shown. Based on the other valuable cars, it should be a real one. There was no hint about the # and owner unfortunately. Maybe it is known here?
 Edit: Maybe rather a COB# based on RHD and AC badge:-)

Peter Brock will be showcasing the first with AMMAS/Germany at the Ring this next Friday.

1965 GT350/R-Model / 5R539 revisited
« on: April 05, 2018, 04:24:58 PM »
I found another nice crisp b/w picture at a recent classic car exhibition ...showing 5R539 after its roof was cut and used in hardtop form at the SPA 1968 event. The only way for driver Claude Dubois to continue racing with his R-Shelby in his preferred class.

Note all the details - a nice task for the eagle-eyed researchers (wiper, electric cut-off button beneath the windshield, bumper openings, Le Mans rear flapper in the wheelhouse et...), because you'll find them on Mr. Dietrichs and Mr. Kienens hardtop later. Claude Dubois once said that he sold the car to his best memory to a german guy (Mr. Dietrich worked for Kleber).

Now look at this Stanford revslib picture and compare Mr. Dietrich/Kienens car at the 1970 DMV Rhein Cup Touring to the 1968 SPA 5R539.

I also have the ONS race logbook of Mr. Kienens car showing that "5R539" was registered as a 1969 car in 1969 for them.
