CSX 3047 at Detroit Drag way in the '60s.

Cobra in reply #10 looks like it has a 1967 OHIO license Plate.

Are you sure that is CSX 3047? It went to Bob Grossman in Nyack, NY, in the fall of '67. Late September, early November.  I saw Kolb delivering the car.

Had to be a different car. Bob Grossman bought 3016, wrecked it at Watkins Glen in the late summer of '66, and bought 3022 as a replacement that fall. He kept it at least until April of '69. There is no record of him having owned 3047.

It was a gold SC. How many of them were there then? I presumed it was 3047 because of info in the Registry. It definitely was Kolb and definitely out of Gotham Ford. September/October 1967.

I must have the "lying eyes" sydrome? ;)

CSX3021 and 3047 were the two Hertz Gold 427 cars

3047 went thru Larsen ford (White Plains NY)

The fact that 3047 was definitely in the NY area around the time-frame mentioned makes it entirely possible that there was an owner between the two people listed in the registry. But I don't think Bob Grossman would have owned it. It's more likely that Grossman had his gold race car, 3022, at Gotham Ford for some work and the "delivery" you saw was Grossman picking up the car afterwards. But who knows at this point?

At the time I was knowledgeable enough to know what it was but not enough to take pictures (Brownie Instamatic) or look for serial numbers. So to me, the number is moot.

I know I saw Kolb driving a gold 427 up Broadway, his tie flying in the wind. My reaction was that the car was so quiet. In NYC (Manhattan) everything is amplified by the echos off the buildings which act as canyon effect.

Considering that it was totally unexpected and other then it being a bikini go-go girl who lost her top, this would be just as great...ah, almost as good. In other words, it just made my day. ;D

Normally in either case, I would have been chased away and told, "get away kid!", and I didn't even get slapped. ;D
