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 ?

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.
