I like the seller's comment that the photo was taken in 1968 when the car has 1971 plates. ;)

  The '70 Trans Am Firebird is another clue. I especially like the "Chevy" air cleaner lid. I'm just jealous I didn't own it.

The red background with white text rear license plate is from 1968 in Alabama. The county was is the south east corner of Alabama. Two states, different body colors, different years.

At least we don't have to wonder if the Cobra was real or a replica. 
Current:
1968 GT500KR owner since 1982 (now running Shelby aluminum 427 S-O)
Kirkham Cobra 427
