Shelby Cobra jackets 1960's information
« on: September 28, 2019, 02:52:22 PM »
Hi are there any ford/shelby experts on the crew or mechanics jackets of the 60's? blue, RN 53335 on label 3 blue stripes on left, cobra on wheels patch, ford patch on left arm + cigarette pack pocket, stars n stripes patch on right arm, faux fur lining, zipper stops short of jacket as it also has a tie up at the bottom. not a repro ( modern copies have different ford patch and label with details)

any one have any knowledge?

Those are plentiful on Ebay. The originals have the round Talon zipper and square Ford logo. Good jackets for wearing around. Come in all different colors. Red, Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Black,Gold, Brown etc. Not very valuable as there are so many out there.

The jackets with the flag patch are later versions mustang two king cobra era & not that rare vs the 60s era jackets.

I believe it's Talon, not Taylon, for the zipper manufacturer.

To me, the jackets are just as timeless as the cars. 👍🏻
Nothing beats a classic!

These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby

I have a dark blue and a light blue.  I bought the dark blue in the 80's from the ford dealer.  The light blue I paid a bit more for on Ebay...
