What a righteous picture! I’ve read about Phil’s exploits in this car, but I’ve never seen a picture showing this artistic skills  ;D

Unfortunately, the stories post this picture are incredibly tragic.  :'(
Nothing beats a classic!

Like my father, I have just two emotions: Rage and Supressed Rage.

Great picture!  Funny, this morning I was reading this article:

https://www.fordmuscle.com/features/back-to-the-future-peter-brock-revives-the-daytona-coupe/

I finally understand the difference between the 'American designed Daytona' versus the 'Italian designed Daytona'.  Now I can't unsee the difference in roof lines.  Peter Brock was truly way ahead of his time in car design.  He's a guy I wouldn't mind seeing Hollywood make a movie about.  But who would play him?
Thanks,

2287 is driven around the back lot at the Simeone museum from time to time last was when Dave Macdonald's family was there receiving an award from the foundation. Before being moved from the Father Devine garage at 8th and Pine st closer looks at the car were possible.

here is the web info from the Museum's site, it simply notes the 23 records set.
https://www.simeonemuseum.org/the-collection/bonneville-salt-flats/1964-shelby-cobra-daytona-coupe

As noted above, at the demonstration days you can walk right up next to it and stick your nose (or camera lens) just about anywhere (after watching it run around the lot). Last year they did a re-enactment of the 12 hours, a couple of pix here:

^^^ that poster also sits next to the car in the Museum's display.

My eyesight is not the best..........but is that a '67 or '68 Mustang in the background, blocked by the Ford F-100? If so, not sure the picture and date line up?

I think it would be more correct to say American designed and Italian produced.
