...... BUT maybe the new owner wouldn't like to see his car like this.
History is history best not to try to ignore/rewrite it. Too many of these cars have been rebuilt from a tag or 1 part. I'd guess that there are at least 50 air cars in the mix. Ned probably knows which ones and many stories.

Info from A-Snake that this is CSX 3270, at the time of this photo, 1984 was owned by Dwight Dehne from Toronto Canada. I think this car had a cammer in it at some point ?
I only have the Mustang registry, could someone scan the history for this car from the Cobra registry and PM it to me ?

thanks, Mike

3270 used to belong to Carter Gette, a wealthy Ford dealer in Millbrook, NY who played with a lot of Cobras back in the 60's - 70's. He did install a cammer 427 and used to wind the engine well past what most people would have dared.

Ha! If you ever wanted to know what a steel 427 crankshaft looks like after crashing through the oil pan, and embedding itself into the asphalt, Carter knew.  ;)

It's a generic narrow-hip 427 in dark green, but unless you have more data -  such as a VIN - the photo isn't worth much.

Would any of these denote any particluar VIN range?

Lets see if i remember this correctly? Rectangular tailights on on the first and second group of 427's.

CSX 3000's and CSX 3100's. I believe the round tailights begin somewhere in the CSX 3200's and are used until the end of production.

The "narrow hip 427's" are a group of I think 25 cars in the CSX 3100's. I want to say in the 3125 to 3150 or so but in that area rather then the end of the 3100's.

Apparently they were a "test run" of sorts to gauge customer opinion as an alternative to the big rear flares and the 7" wide Sunburst wheels.

The narrow fender cars got voted off of the island.  ;)



I do remember a period of time in the early '70s when "Cobra discovery" was going on and some were questioning the narrow hip cars as not original cars.

I remember Tony Hogg having a silver one while he was editor of Road & Track mag. I think it was a CSX3140 something car? Maybe 3142?

I used to be able to do this without a Registry. I'm sure Ned still can? Is time and distance the same as old age and senility?

Found this on the ClubCobra site, from back in 2012, it is suggested Tony Hogg's car was # 3154 ? ?
