Great car. Great that your father has kept it all of these years. I bought my 1965 GT350 in 1971 at age 18 and still have it.

Wow! Of all the places to find an original S/C, and a rather unique car at that, Fort Stockton TX.... That car is a time capsule, DON'T change or restore anything.

Thanks for sharing.

Call me paronoid, but I wouldn't post any pictures on the net that would allow some evil doer to figure out where the car is. Be sure that any outside pictures do not have a mailbox with an address or a street name in the back ground. Otherwise please keep the pictures coming. Like under car shots as well.

Well I know of at least one replica with the bolt on sidepipes, mine! Makes for a quick change to the 'shorties' at the track, long pipes for coming home.

Thanks for bringing the car to Club Cobra. It's nice to see cars that haven't been seen in a while.

The registry does indicate that the car was re-painted after a cross country run in '72 when the motor was rebuilt. Is the registry incorrect?

Default Hood

If it were any bigger than the hood scoop would have to be bigger to cover it.
Kit cars can use any hood scoop they want.
The originals all came the same way unless there were some mods by the owner. If you look at the old pics of the comp cars at Shelby in the airport lot from 1965, you'll see the same.
Remember the ad in the for the creme that if rubbed on your D__K it would make it bigger? Then wouldn't your hand get bigger too?
Same theory..

Default Memory

It's probably not your memory, it's the car. Chandler had 3281 which was a street car conveted to S/C mods. Since it never came with a hood scoop, who knows what was done. Unless he had a real S/C besides, I have no idea. I'd have to see a pic.

CSX3281 was a very modified street car by Rick Reese who used to work for Gordon Gimble at Cobra Performance.
I wonder where he is today?
