Early 1960s European Motor show COBRA pictures
« on: June 22, 2022, 08:50:37 PM »
Hopefullly I am not borrowing any copyrighted photos that are being shared here for historical educational purposes, but
I thought it would be neat for those interested in seeing them and I don't recall the websites they came from.

I'll start with October 1961 in London with this one photo from that show.

Here's another from London, now early October 1962.

And one from Turin, Italy ... late October 1962

Neither have much to show other than the body and exterior details.
The front bumperettes on the Turin car look stubby like those found on csx2000...
While the London bumperettes look tall and thin like typical production Cobras..

These last images are from London in October 1963.
We see the complete chassis flanked by completed cars on both sides.

Could this be be same chassis that was in the back lot of Carter Ave in Venice?
(shown in the Freidman photo)
The Venice photos shows Goodyear tires and the London photos sow Pirelli's.

Very nice, thanks for posting those photos. You didn't happen to find any Cobra pictures from the 1963 Paris Show, did you? I would be very interested in any that anyone has, and they would help solve a long-standing mystery regarding CSX2186 and COX6002.
