I think it's Guardsman blue.

If you mean CSX3015 today, no that is a bright metallic blue painted by Harley Cluxton. At one point it was black.

Some of these cars seem to have had so many previous lives, it's difficult for me to keep up with them.

My memory of it was when it was apart in the "body shop" in CA, and still "owned" by Jim Webb. I remember it as Guardsman blue, but memory, like youth and hope is fleeting.

I have this in my files as CSX3015 ? ? Is this right ? If not will correct the post. I think this was on Forum 1 ?

You have it right. That's how 3015 looked when it sat for a number of tears at a shop in Sylmar, CA.

Hello Everyone,

Here are three photos that I took of CSX3305 at the last Colorado SAAC event held at Continental Divide Raceway near Castle Rock, Colorado in September of 1983.  Bill Murray had done quite a bit of work on this car.  I think it was mid afternoon when the owner, Ken Wilhelm, asked Bill to take him for a few laps around the track.  Bill really wanted to show Ken what the car was capable of, and he really had the car flying around the track.   I distinctly remember Ken's face being white as a sheet when he and a grinning Bill returned to the paddock area.  The first photo shows Bill and Ken coming back into the paddock.  The second and third photos are of the 427 SOHC engine in this car.

Thanks,
Eric

Thanks for posting the photos of CSX3305 with the SOHC motor.

CSX3270 also had a Cammer at one time, but not when I saw it here in Canada.

Does any one have an idea as to how many Cobras had SOHC engine installed in their life time, I don't think any came from Shelby

 with one ?

I shot this photo of CSX3208 at Hershey in 1977.  Sorry for the poor quality but the negative got damaged.

I think the title of this thread was meant to include original CSX3xxx cars. Not present-day replicas. ;)

LT, don't let any kids drive that pretty blue 289 car at night on empty country roads. Never know what might happen... :(

Friend of mine has a white one that when he bought it years ago out of Va  the seller offered the car either with the cammer that was in it or the orig 428.....he got the orig 428.....
Many Fords,Hot Rods,Motorcycles
