It would seem that these pictures had to be taken between 9/30/65 (when 6S230 shipped to Archway) and 12/22/65 (when the last of the possible 1965 GT350s in these photos was sold to its first owner.

Make sense?

Archway is in Maryland... so looking at the trees in the background of some of the pics, looks like they were mostly through Fall?  Maybe mid to late October?

I actually have the negatives for these photos in my collection.  I purchased them off eBay back in 2017.  According to info provided by the seller the photographer was Steve Rollins and they were taken sometime in November 1965.  Unfortunately I don't see a date on the negatives to confirm.

In the pictures in Bill’ post #6 of the line up of cars, it appears one of the cars is a R Model? With lettering and a number on the side? Would this have been for sale? Or just lined up with the street Shelby’s to generate excitement?
      Great pictures. Thanks for posting.

I saw these photos on Facebook as well. Does the '65 not have a dashpod?

In one of the pics you can see the hole in the dash for the pod...id bet the Tach was being warrantied as most were at one point or another.

Kind regards,

Bill's photo at Francis for Fords shows 5r213 on it's stop at the dealer during the Cobra Caravan tour.
(Not for sale at that time)

Archway received 5R106, so guessing that's it in the pic.

5r106 was the Dick Jordan R model that was delivered to Jack Loftus Ford (IL) in August 1965.
He owned and raced it for a few years.

You fingers might have slipped and meant to type 5r105 that shipped to Archway in June '65

Thanks for posting all those great color photos!

Another great photo!

Thanks for posting it too!

It looks like a '49 Merc to the left, on the street.

Details about the the R model at Francis For Fords (5R213) were discussed in the Forum topic about the Cobra Caravan. See it at:

Another great photo! The dark color car at the far right in the showroom has the outline of a '49-'51 Club Coupe - and the Mercury parked at the curb appears to be of similar vintage.

Did anyone notice the ultra rare "Cobra 427 is Here" banner hanging in the showroom window?

Good eye on the 427 Cobra poster.  I would love to have that.  My 427 came from Archway.

Archway sponsored one of the most successful 427 Cobras winning countless SCCA races in the hands of Hal Keck.

Great thread ! love those period pics "colour" ! of new cars at the dealership  8)

Here's a couple of shots of the Archway Cobra, catching air at Marlboro in '66.

 the colour shot could be Lime Rock ? Do we have enough tires ?

 Can any one make out the tag on the E-type Jag ?
