SAAC-47 / Re: Saac 47 pictures anyone?
« on: July 14, 2022, 06:43:12 PM »
that was CSX3223

What was the CSX of the Black 427 Cobra with the Sunburst rims...very nice looking car.

Thanks for any help!

Thank you SunDude!
I had that CSX number noted as 3223, but didn't trust it for some reason.
The other black 427 Cobra is noted as CSX 3128. I like it too, but those sunbursts look primo!
Thanks again.

Million dollar view and my 65 shelby dad bought new. Unrestored just maintained to do 100 mph all the time. One of the best shows I have ever been to!

What's the Shelby number on your dads '65...parked next to 5003 in the concours event?. Very sharp!

Which R model is that? Without any livery it's hard to tell. (5r096)

What was the CSX of the Black 427 Cobra with the Sunburst rims...very nice looking car. (csx3223)

Thanks for any help!

Thank you Brian,
Knowing the CSX number is fabulous to ID the car and look it up.

Thank you Dan,
It is nice to know those extra and important details.

Here are some additional photos in the UK (no side vents when there)

and
maybe an image when it was in Michigan with Carroll and Ken Miles receiving a trophy
(not the typical angled side vents, but rather a unique square side vent like the unique taillights
The date of 12/7/1963 in Michigan might not be correct.

I wasn't able to attend SAAC-47 in person, but have combed through other people's webphotos to identify all the original Cobras that were at the event. Did I miss any?
  • CSX2125
  • CSX2126
  • CSX2196
  • CSX2350
  • CSX2396
  • CSX2574
  • CSX3128
  • CSX3141
  • CSX3223

What were the CSX4000/6000 chassis numbers for these two continuation-series 427 Cobras? (photos by Bill Cook)




Thank you for sharing the list of the Cobra CSX numbers and for noting the photos were from BILL COOK!
Bill takes some great photos and should get our sincere thanks for sharing them!

Not a picture, but here is a video posted on google of a walk through the concours area under the bleachers.
I wish there were more photos of all these beautiful Shelby cars.

These last images are from London in October 1963.
We see the complete chassis flanked by completed cars on both sides.

Could this be be same chassis that was in the back lot of Carter Ave in Venice?
(shown in the Freidman photo)
The Venice photos shows Goodyear tires and the London photos sow Pirelli's.

Here's another from London, now early October 1962.

And one from Turin, Italy ... late October 1962

Neither have much to show other than the body and exterior details.
The front bumperettes on the Turin car look stubby like those found on csx2000...
While the London bumperettes look tall and thin like typical production Cobras..

Hopefullly I am not borrowing any copyrighted photos that are being shared here for historical educational purposes, but
I thought it would be neat for those interested in seeing them and I don't recall the websites they came from.

I'll start with October 1961 in London with this one photo from that show.

Thanks for the post Bill.
The Lancer tail light is very close and I can see why it was thought to be the part, but did not look like a perfect match with the inside bright trim diameter. Dan seems to have it figured out from the Mercury.
Thanks you both for the posts.

Can anyone fill in the story on this unusual Cobra.
What is the CSX number?
Why does it have different tail lights?
Did Ed Hugus built it? (Probably not.)

It was also in a December 7th 1963 video  filmed in Michigan.

It is different!

I'm still looking for the '67's that made in into the concour classes, also the popular vote.
We could see there was a red '67 with outboards, in the background of one photo.

Here is a front shot of the one in Concours




Excellent 3/4 front view Jeff!
Thanks

I see a hint of the Dark Moss Green '67 behind the red one
