I believe this is CSX3052 wadded up, these two images were in a group of photos (only four of which had Shelbys in them) in a link

 posted by 1179/jon , id'd as Willow Springs, but Side-Oilers is correct that the crashed car is at Riverside in '68, can any one put a

 # to the yellow car, not sure if it's a 3000, and is it also Willow Springs ? I like the '50s Ford pick . I've included the photos, in case

 they  get sold.

I think the yellow car is CSX3020.  I believe Dave Dralle owned that car then with that paint scheme.

All three photos are from the August 1968 National at Riverside....and the yellow 427 Cobra (3020) is Dave Dralle's as Silverton-Ford had noted.

I agree with the ID of the wrecked Cobra as being CSX 3052. I have put remarkably similar, but different, photos of the wrecked car in the online Registry.

Who's "driving" it now? I'm sure that was "restoreable"?

It was restored the smart way: they bought a used 427 Cobra and used it as the basis for rebuilding the wrecked 3052. And the amalgamation is owned today by the same owner who was lucky to survive the crash in '68.

"Amalgamation? "

You weren't satisfied with coining "air car"? Now it's an "amalgamation"? OK. Cool.  8)
