The blue car was an AC Ace/ Bristol, not a Cobra. The red Cobra is an early car without sidevents. Movies are tough to work with, because it's tough to focus in on specific items. It's my belief this film has been posted here previously and the best we could do is guess what car it may have been.

Still a guess but the red car could be CSX2027. The photo shows an 'oval' shaped boot emblem, kidney bean Halibrands and rear flares like 2027. CSX2027 was assembled by Hugus and was in the NE during the time.

Best guess as to which red Cobra this one appears to be in the video would be 2027 at the November 14-15, 1964 HC (most of the trees in the background have no leaves). The gold colored 1963 Corvette Stingray #30 driven by John Bolton is noted as the winner of the November 1964 Hershey HC, the maroonish Porsche Special #138 is Pat/John Sabel's car (also noted as his debut race) the muted red (looks like an orange) #67 Porsche Special is Jack Rabold's car.
