Default any JBLs for sale

Always liked how these were built, and would love to have one if possible.

Do you mean JCF out of Coos Bay Ore.?? I have some KILLER vintage JBL speakers from the 70's L100's that's louder than our Cobras

LOL, Indeed the latter option, the JBL you can actually sit in and drive.

they didn't build many from what i can tell. I like the frame/suspension interpretation compared to "sitting on" feeling in a lot of the other interpretations (e.g. superformance)

I have not seen a JBL car in person but would agree that the racecar level of engineering is impressive! I don't think there is/was anything else like it in the USA.

I would second your thought about the "sitting on" feeling. My ERA changed my perception and feels much more like being a part of the car. If you struggle to find a JBL and aren't looking for an all-out track car, you want to find a local ERA to sit in (if you haven't already).

Best of luck in your search!

LOL, you learn something new every day. I thought I knew most of the one off's, NOPE Look's to be more of a modern-day version (80's-90"s), of what might have been, if our cars had continued to evolve. Really neat car, by any standards. Thanks' for enlightening me. Cheers Tom. P.S. My Sansui G-9000 (160Watts per channel, receiver) with my JBL L-100's will put out 105db's at only 15watts (Just idling) Also Pure Music and still louder than our Cobras
