That cabinet sat in the corner of my shop for over 30 years glad to see its still around. :) It definitely has a Cobra- Shelby - Tiger- Pantera connection. Many a job contract was written on it, and many a little item like carb and distributor parts were pulled from in it. Sold it on ebay about 10 years ago.

I have two of these in my shop.  They are great for storing parts.   I didn't pay near as much as they are asking for this one.
