1963 Coventry Motors Cobra - ID?

(1/2) > >>

Richstang:
Would anyone happen to know the Shelby ID for this Coventry Motors parade lap car?
The event is noted as Laguna Seca; June 9, 1963

The caption said 260, but would the “Powered by Ford” fender emblem indicate a 289?
It appears to have full bumpers with a rear exiting exhaust.

Thanks

Not an engine size badge, production car side emblems started with CSX2001.

It appears to be a very early car as it does not appear to have "Shelby quick open" bonnet latch handles.

Richstang:
Thank you for that information Dan

Rich, if that's  a 2000 car, I went through my 4th. edition of the  registry, and found twenty nine cars, 1st one  CSX2019

 and the last one CSX2552 that passed through Coventry, there are also a number of cars that the selling dealer is unknown.  I

 haven't yet read up on each car.

Is the person behind the wheel in the military ?, he has a patch on his shoulder.

Thanks Mike.
29 new cars is too many to attempt any ID. I was hopeful someone might know. Maybe, maybe not.

Not sure if that is a military, security, or other service patch. It's too blurry when I try to zoom in.
