Original or Reproduction? COBRA spec sheet/price list
« on: November 19, 2022, 07:37:15 PM »
Should this have a date code in the lower left corner if it is an original?  Ex:  SA - 9-63

This is the last 289 spec sheet. Being the only version from West Imperial Hwy it was not dated. The first one from Princeton Drive wasnít dated either. Thereís also 9-63, 2-64, and 3-64 versions from Princeton Drive. I donít think there were others. Beware of reproductions of the earlier ones!

There are two fuzzy b&w images in that listing that are not mentioned, is that one of the drag cars ? Can't make out what it says on

 the side. Could it be CSX3175 ?
