The Lounge / Re: Farley - facing the music.......
« on: September 08, 2023, 09:50:02 AM »
we have 40 lightning trucks  being delivered /  and at least 10 mach e  have gone thru  the dealer  this month .

they may not work for everyone but  have not seen any traded back in .

the mach e is reasonable performer  / 300 miles per charge will get most people back and forth to work for a week around here. if you can charge it for free at work it makes sense .

are you going  to take it on vacation for a 12  hr drive  no.

Has your dealership sold a good number of Powerboost F150's?

Forum Guide should be asked why we cant have up to date information on cars?

How do you mean? Like an on-line Registry?

Concours Talk / Re: 65 427 cobra rear axel question

Did they come with inboard or outboard disc brakes?
The only original Cobra with inboard brakes was the prototype CSX2000. All the rest had outboard.

Wanted to Buy / Re: Wanted Original Cobra Emblems

Wanted to buy one or two original S1CS-19523-C Cobra emblems. Not interested in reproductions. These were used on 289 Cobras beginning at about CSX2133 and continued until the end of 289 Cobra production. They must be complete and in excellent to NOS condition.

I would also have interest in a couple of C3RA-14225-A emblems. These were used on 427 Cobras. Again they should be complete and in excellent to NOS condition. No reproductions, please.

CSX 2000 Series / Re: Looking for a slabside wire wheel shelby
« on: January 27, 2023, 10:29:33 AM »
Generally, "slabside" refers to a replica rather than a genuine Cobra.

That's news to me.  I call all Flat Flare  CSX 2000 Cobra's Slab Sides.

That is a 1990s term used on replicas because the manufacturers didn't know what to call the street 289's to differentiate them from the wide hip "FIA" models they were building.

The term did not exist in the 60's and is considered derogatory by many original Cobra owners.
 
Besides the fact that there is not a flat panel on an original Cobra, let alone a slab of bacon ;)

The correct term you are looking for is a street 289 Cobra.

Up For Auction / Re: CSX3063 on Ebay

  The car has been for sale for a long time and is a consignment car.  But if they really want $1.25MM (or anywhere close) it ain't coming from me.  I think the price should be about where the bids stopped on PCarmarket.
Do you think you would have the same problem when you try to sell it? Why would you want to create that problem for yourself?

I happened to look at this car today. While I'm not in the market for a '67 GT350, this car would be a great choice. An honest, clean, no stories, original drive train '67 with AC. There can't be many of those out there and at that price. If you're in the market, don't wait. This one will not last long.

Thanks for your post, as the car is #240...it can only be a Carry-Over, verfied by Bill Collins.

A known US history, again verified by some previous and known US owners.

A carryover with backup lights?

Are you sure this is a carryover car? Sure seems to have some 1966 non-carryover parts.
I'll let the experts comment.
