Okay "Rear end cooler" is known now. Can't identify the other ones all.

2. from right = wiper?
3. from right = lights?

2. from left = starter
3. from left = fuel pumps?

Can any lead me to, or know the dimensions, (other then the body) for CSX2196 ? Was it the same chassis as a 289, I'm sure it had

to be strengthened to handle the power ?

Not sure about frame being able to handle the HP. Was fortunate to drive “The Flip” at both Sears and Thunderhill.
One scary car that was way beyond my driving ability! The owner also owned CSX2427 aka DragonSnake which I enjoyed and found easier to handle. Just remarkable that Ken Miles could tame its drivability. Truly shows his remarkable talent!
