Original 1963-1965 cast aluminum oil pan, no repairs. $1850 + shipping
Shelby American Racing / THE CHECKERED FLAG
March 10, 2023, 12:25:33 PM
Mark Popov, SAI European race team crew member from 1964-1968 passed away today due to cancer. Mark was also a crew member on John Fitzpatrick's Porsche racing team during the 935, 956 and 962 era.
NOS, correct Ray Brown or Impact short seat belt snap hooks. Correct for 260, 289, and 427 Cobras. Complete set of 4 in original cadmium finish, later 427 Cobras should be chrome plated. I believe these were also used on early GT350 but also in chrome plated form. I found a few more sets of the "short" style and a few sets of the "long" style, both the long and the short style would need to be chromed for late production GT350s and 427 Cobras.
Please private message me for additional photos or Info, $400.00 obo shipped.

Concours Talk / Autolite 4100 HIPO carburetor
October 10, 2020, 01:39:02 AM
I was restoring a C30F AJ Autolite 4100 carburetor for a project in the shop and I wanted to get opinions on the plating colors we used to restore the carburetor with. It would be nice to have this kind of info on the "Concours" page but I couldn't find any. Anyway feel free to blast away if you see a discrepancy. 
Concours Talk / 289 Cobra leaf spring wrap
May 20, 2020, 02:29:49 PM
I was curious as to what is accepted as being "correct" for the color of the material wrap for the front and rear leaf springs on a 260/289 Cobra, what color are the SAAC Judges looking for when the car is being judged? There are a few different color Denso tapes being offered, would it be the green or tan color? Thanking you in advance.

I have an original spring assembly with the tape intact but I have seen restorers using the green Denso tape most often.
I am in need of two NOS or lightly used 1963 Goodyear 7.00x15 Blue Streak Sports Car Special tires for a restoration I am working on. I am also looking for one NOS or lightly used 1963 Goodyear 6.00x15 Blue Streak Sports Car Special. Thanking you in advance.

CSX 2000 Series / 260/289 Cobra shoulder belt reels??
September 25, 2019, 07:11:28 PM
Does anyone have a clue??
There were at least two small block Cobras that received shoulder belt reels as optional equipment, expensive at that, does anyone have a photo of the reel assemblies or know where the reels were sourced from? Thanking you in advance.

I would like to report the passing of Doug Pratt. Doug was an San Diego area Cobra guy that had worked on many local Cobras, both original and otherwise. He was always willing to give his assistance to whomever needed it and no matter what the make or model was. God speed Doug, you will be missed.

I thought it my be helpful to our forum members if there was a technical section or a "how to" for those looking for assistance on what parts to use or how to repair issues with our vehicles?
