Hello All,

Came across some very cool documents posted on a Mopar site by Alex Brady.  Alex got vintage documents from the son and grandson of Elk Valley Dodge Chrysler Plymouth in Sutton West Virginia.  Included in these documents was the Used Car Inventory sheet attached here, from September 30th 1971.  I assume the column on the right is their internal cost, but that's just my guess.  Of note, this sheet shows the dealership had in stock a White '67 Shelby Cobra, that appears to be a Repo with a value of about $1216.  Unfortunately no more info exists about this car, but considering white '67 models after review of the registry I think the most likely candidates would be late 427 Cobras, perhaps CSX3266 or CSX3280.  Other possibilities are CSX3181, CSX3204, or CSX3191, or perhaps others that were not originally white but were repainted white prior to 1971.  Anyway, I figured you guys would like to see this, and hopefully you can identify which car this was.

Even though the 1967 was not officially called a Cobra, I wouldn't rule out this could be a Mustang based car.

A Dodge dealer might not make this distinction.

Didn’t think about that, but it is a distinct possibility since the description at right looks like it says “Fast Back”.

Very true, however those two Superbirds were both Hemi cars, which was pretty rare considering only 135 Hemi ‘Birds were built.

If the administrators prefer maybe this post should be moved to the ‘67 GT350/GT500 forum?

I agree with the thought that the car in question was likely a "67 Shelby Mustang "Cobra." By '71, a 427 Cobra roadster would have had a value, even as a repo, of well over $1216.
