1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: 5R532 Owner

I'll reach out to the current owner - we've been friends for years and I have his cell. I will not disclose any more about it as I believe in letting owners dictate how much they wish to share about what they own. He does frequent the forums here so he may speak up and provide more.

1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: Rear quarter radio antennas on 65s
« on: February 08, 2021, 04:33:30 PM »

Another factor to consider is the proximity to the rear mounted battery for early cars. Any mechanic not wanting to fool around with working in the area of the battery and mounting hardware at the RH quarter might have decided to go with the standard ford mounting location. I can say that 541 had antenna in stock location while 262 never got the radio antenna installed that was sent in the trunk from what I could tell.

Jack Griffith and Mark Donohue planned on competing against the COBRA in '64 but by the time Griffith had his operation running the A production class rules had changed and adjusting to the changing market proved a challenge financially. He and Donohue did start with a vision for racing and while they didn't build a "factory" race car per se the lightweight was the closest a Griffith would ever come to being the COBRA's track competitor.... enter Griffith's 200 lightweight chassis #1 - the "R" model of Griffiths

 - 1st of 3 built
 - 3" lowered drivetrain over production Griffiths
 - 1450 pounds curb weight
 - 289 HIPO w/ 48 IDAs
 - Close ratio toploader
 - '64 Corvette differential installed

CSX 2000 Series / Can anyone identify this cobra?
« on: January 26, 2021, 11:24:19 AM »
Saw this pic on the internet which I hadn't seen before. A lot of the features of my car in the 60's (side exhausts, fender mounted mirror, dark color, etc.), but it's obviously Florida and my car was being raced in California at the time there another black, green or dark early 289 cobra that identifies with this?

CSX2177 - I only mentioned because other than the gas cap location most other mods kinda match mine.

Can someone put a timeframe on the picture showing an unidentified amateur COBRA having a moment (5th page)? I only ask because my cobra was painted white from the late 60's until late 70's and was racing in California as an independent entry through out this time. The car initially had 4" side exhaust, roll bar and mag wheels in the early part of it's racing career and then by the mid 70's received larger flares, oil cooler as well as hood scoop. I've been trying to find photos of the car in action.

Price drop to $700/BO for the unit - I'd also be interested in trading for a nice 289 COBRA seat belt.

What I'm finding is that cobra variations and running changes are much more frequent than dealing with the Mustangs over the years. This means hunting the correct parts require extra diligence and paying close attention to where in the timeframe of these changes the part you are souring was built. I happen to have wound up with a Lucas wired car with Ford charging system - roughly 60ish of these cars were built before Ford decided it's version of a electrical system was better and at CSX2200 changed to their devices and added their alternator. Nothing is a "paint by numbers" for restoration from this perspective. As far as the driving and use experience I cannot speak to this yet - car is still in the process of getting wired and I've been waiting on guage restoration providers to send back my stuff before I can fire up.

Guys...this is my old ride - 5S262. The excellent restoration finishing work is courtesy of Charles! The detail on the undercarriage overspray/coloring courtesy of Jeff and the sourcing of parts courtesy of Craig Conley, Ed Meyer and Jim Cowles! I traded both 5S541 and 5S262 for CSX2177 last year. It's was a tough morning putting two nice GT350s on a trailer, but I always wanted a 289 Competition COBRA so I had to give it a go...hard to believe how far 262 had come and yes - the Amelia Concours brought lots of people to the car saying it was the nicest restored GT350 they'd ever seen. Rearview mirror now - it'll be interesting to see where it goes. I just heard for the first time yesterday from a "friend of a friend" that 5S541 is now apart. Incredibly original car that was - I was intending to leave it unrestored, but it's another's perogative now...

I'd be interested in other technical details regarding 2179 as I'm only two cars earlier. By the way, I only posted a pic of one of the rear shocks as my fronts I got from Jay and they look like your pic.
