Other than it's 1976 in Dearborn, MI. I don't remember much about this car.



I'll take a guess and say it's CSX3274.

Thread on Ken Miles with CSX3002 at Lakeside Australia, November '65. Couple of another Cobra as well, not sure if it's a 3000 ?

The other Cobra is COB 6033 formerly owned by Ron Thorp.

CSX3001 - The Bordinat Cobra, aka XD Cobra, was a Ford styling concept built on a coil-spring 427 Cobra chassis. The car was powered by a 289 Hi-Po V8 engine mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission, and the body was vacuum formed from Royalex composite material. The car was shown at the 1965 Detroit auto show.

     Tail lights look similar to the ones on the '63-'64 Riviera.             :)

I suspect he is. I imagine he also misses his dad, Carl Mentz, who left us in July. RIP, Carl.

Very sorry to hear Carl Mentz has passed away. He was a good guy.

Pictures of CSX3134 taken at a car lot in Beverly Hills about 40 years ago.

I'm thinking that was at the Rodeo Coach dealership.

That sounds correct. I was trying to remember the name of the lot, but it was escaping me. There was a Lamborghini there as well, but the only car that meant much to me was the Cobra. My fiancee ( now wife of almost 40 years) and I were visiting my sister in So. California and we stumbled upon this car. I had been looking for a Shelby for a couple years at this point, but a 289 Cobra was running about $30,000 and a 427 Cobra around $60.000. We bought our '67 GT500  about 2 1/2 years later for $7800. A far cry from what a Cobra was bringing in those days, but still a pretty good stretch for a 22 year old kid in 1982! $60,000 in those days was like $1,000,000 today!
