SunDude most likely nailed it on the #60....the same number font is used in in the link to this photo from the 1963 Dodger Stadium races:

"The Henry Ford" collection of the Dave Friedman photo collection is a little bit better than the Vault at the moment....

I think the deal with Stanford University ended several years ago....their part of the deal was scanning in a vast amount of the photo collection and organizing parts of the printed collection also.  Here's the link to Rev's Institue's website:

Definitely not....looks like an extended and modified fiberglass Cobra body with some unique mods.  009's last official race was at Watkins Glen in August of 1971.

Actually "Raydyot" not "Raydot"....the mirrors in the initial inquiry are more like a "Talbot" style mirror.  "Talbot" mirrors have a logo/crest on the main body...but these are some sort of copies of the original concept with longer main bodies.

Up For Auction / Re: 5R213 - Bring A Trailer

Fees...well let's see, there's is usually a sellers fee of around 10% "+ or -" per auction house (depends if you are an active seller/buyer with that specific auction company), extra fees sometimes charged for a "prime time" TV spot or selling date (Friday or Saturday is preferable, but hopefully not next to another car that is similar), hotel and lodging fees, shipping or transport fees, etc. etc.  Just think of fees, fees and more fees.

Are there any drivers or drivers associated with the car?

The football stadium is the old Kesar stadium in SF.

February 13-14, 1965....Green Valley races (Texas)....Bob Bondurant is at the wheel learning the track due to mechanical difficulties on SA's 3002 Cobra (broken camshaft in Saturday's practices).  The Cobra, as Ned mentioned is 2164.

1966 24-Hours of Le Ken Miles or Carroll in the initial photo posted, but the gentleman in the red jacket is Alan Mann.

CSX 2000 Series / Re: When was the Cobra's first race
« on: June 04, 2021, 08:30:18 PM »
The first race to actually have a Cobra on the track for a "road racing event" was at Connellsville (August 25/26, 1962).  The entry was by Ed Hugus and the Cobra is broke in practice due to teething issues (overheating?) and did not race on the weekend.

"Hill Climb racing" Cobras seem to appear around mid-1963.

"Drag racing" Cobras seem to appear around early-mid 1963.

"Autocross, Slalom, Gymkhana, etc." Cobras seem to appear around the mid-later part of 1963.

There could possibly be earlier events, but newspaper articles, etc., only reported the top finishers for events.

All three photos are from the August 1968 National at Riverside....and the yellow 427 Cobra (3020) is Dave Dralle's as Silverton-Ford had noted.
