Conversing with Dan/Ned, I cannot believe how many times I was less than a mile or so away from that car while still living and visiting friends and family in the general area and never knew it existed. I am looking forward to watching the resurrection of CSX2410.

Who are you going to source the body from?

Yes, Dan is quite familiar with the car, think I email him a question or two every week as I'm doing research for parts.

To be honest, no one but my FiL and his immediate family knew, and he was the only one that really understood or had interest in it. After purchasing it he had a grand idea to have the car rebuilt as he always dreamed of having a Cobra. Then life happened and next thing you know we're 47 years later uncovering it in the same condition he bought it.

The body is on order from Kirkhams.

David Kirkham is an excellent choice, he and his team of craftsman put out an excellent product. Can't wait to see it when it's done.

Any initial indications of damage to the chassis or subsequent repair, stemming from the accident in 1967 that destroyed the body?

Are those the original wire wheels and if so, can they be refurbished or will they be replaced?

It is surprising how often we hear a story of a rare car stowed away in a local house garage and we are totally unaware of its contents.

I remember seeing a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" driving close to my home, and chasing it on foot around a corner to see it disappearing behind a rapidly closing garage door .... luckily for me, the driver appeared outside again and I was able ask about the Daytona and the other four cars that I had caught sight of behind that garage door ....an E-Type (XKE), a Maserati (Khamsin, I think) and two others that I now can't recall their ID.
That said, very few of my neighbours know what is behind my garage doors

Cheers,
Glen

Wow this brings back a lot of memories and nightmares with my old CSX3000 car back in the 70's. This is so cool. Keep the pics coming

How about a 1966 GT40 MKII in a flimsy tiny wooden shed two miles from my house. I knew the car was around, it visited a July 4 car show after I had already left with my car. I carried a picture of a GT40 MKII in my pocket for years. I showed that picture at garages, corner stores that sold fuel, speed shops, and automobile parts stores, and no one admitted to seeing it for years. One day somebody told me there was a “1967 Shelby” in that shed right over there. I drove by that shed often. I was not looking for a “1967 Shelby”. Fast forward years, it showed up at a SAAC Convention and yes it was the “1967 Shelby” in the shed I failed to go check out. A few years ago I got to talk to the man that owned it while it was in the shed. He paid the exact same amount for it as we did our black Cobra the same year just two months apart. Arghhhhh!

Or. In the 1970s I sold a 1967 GT500 to a man that resold it and got a 1966 black GT350H. He had drove the GT350 frequently including to work. He was in shock one day. Some men with pickup truck were at the home next door. The home owner and the visitors were moving stuff out of the garage into the yard. The pickup truck was backed into the garage and in a little while a 1965 GT350 R Model on a Shelby trailer was pulled out into the sun for the first time in years. The neighbor never mentioned a GT350 in the garage.

Trophy cars can be anywhere.
