Sounds like a great car.  Someone definitely put some serious effort into it.

I presume it is a fiberglass body?

I believe the 3000 series Cobra used a big in small out transmission and not the big in big out. Not that it matters much in the big picture but thought I would mention it. If it is a aluminum car it is a steal but would be surprised if it were.

In my experience, if it were aluminum the ad would state as such probably a half a dozen times (:

Nice looking car and well done build from what I can gather.

Judging by the lack of post holes in the doors, the way the body rivets are in the engine compartment etc I would say this is a glass bodied Cobra. As much trouble as the owner went through on "detail" items for this build I wonder why he would have left the exterior details off, including the "Lift-A-Dot" posts for the convertible top? Nice looking Cobra otherwise.

As far as I know, you are correct. The Cobra is the only application that I ever came across with that combination. What are the other applications for the short tail shaft, big input, small output? Are there any other than the Cobra?

I had one of those here, and great big silly me thought it was a counterfeit, i.e., a small input that had be switched over?

As far as aluminum body, or lack of it, I see a contradiction here. The car is being "hyped" on accuracy to detail. Fiberglass (although much more practical) is hardly an accentuation of the positives of historical detail?

Nice car though. At this point I am seeing the attraction of an original street 427. Missed them new by 15 minutes. 'Phissst...and theys was gone!' Shocked

You could get a CSX 4000 roller for around $40-45K 12 years ago.  It's double that today.

Interestingly, some photos show some lift-a-dots while others do not.

cost on a new CSX6000 series roller is about 90K, I guess you do the math and troy to figure out what you'll have in it finished. We've done a bunch of these and theres a lot of time and $  spent to make them correct like a 60s car.  If anyone wants to get one priced out call my office man Jesse,  he's in charge of the Period 13 Cobra division 920 434 3645

The last fiberglass CSX that I remember selling was CSX4813, but it didn't have the detail this car has. Also, black no stripes, CSX 4813 was listed for $115,000 with an aluminum 482/Tremec 5-speed.

Depends if your friend wants to pay a large premium for the details. Personally, the "more accurate replica syndrome" makes no sense to me.  Frustration But that's just my opinion.

For about double the money I'd rather buy another Ford GT , but it's not for me.
