CSX 4451 ....... Getting Close To Completion. The final stretch!!!!
 
Well it all started at SAI


Southern Automotive just completed the the 427 FE after a delay on receiving a backordered aluminum block from POND. Susan was awesome to work with and was very helpful and generous along the way to boot..... can't say enough about her or SA!


I stopped by Oltoff Racing yesterday on my return from DC and met with Dennis. What a super nice guy and man did he have a shop full of nice GT40s!!!!! He had a few ideas for subtle mods to make the car a better driver. No doubt he knows his stuff. He is hoping to have her finished up by the first week in March if all goes right.


Should be a good spring!!

Added replacement photos with Photobucket going full stupid!!!

Great looking car. Lots of great company too!

Looks really nice. Dennis and Southern Automotive are involved with my build as well. Both offer a lot of experience and knowledge. Your build is coming tougher nicely. Good luck with the build.

Southern Automotive and Olthoff was my formula, too. Great guys.
Congrats on a great looking car.
Hope you get to drive soon!!

So, you gonna just take pictures of it in your driveway or drive it :) ? We need a driver's log!

After my first drive I declared it to be:

A the f*n fun you can legally have in public...with your clothes on.

What a great Cobra

lakercobra 04-10-2017 04:30 AM

Looking great - have fun!

csx4017 04-10-2017 04:36 AM

Very nicely done. What size carb? 750-770 ? I am preparing to sell my CSX4017LA........and about to be an ERA driver. I have had 7yrs of great fun. I am sure you will enjoy being part of the Cobra family. When I says that I mean not only being a Shelby SAAC guy but being a part of the larger Cobra, Daytona,GT40 family. Get out and drive it....and find the 2 lane roads with as many twists as possible. Be safe and have fun.
Cheers
Rick

On another note....E5USMC is not random. I was an E5 in the USMC aviation wing. Discharged 6/65. Best wishes for the road ahead.

E5USMC 04-10-2017 05:52 AM

Lol.... oh I drove it!!!! It's a beast to be sure. Sadly my next 2 weeks are filled with work travel so it will have to hold down the garage floor till then !!!!

Gonna get a GoPro video on my next drive.

Are those the glue on billboard letters?

E5USMC 04-10-2017 09:04 AM

Yes... from Treadwear. Used them on my last car and they work great. Just be prepared for a long tedious application process... gave plenty of sweet tea, music , and snacks!!!
