Is that what you would call a bundle of snakes? Very nice Cobras and trucks. I like the old Ford pickup, too!

Great work on all of them!

Thank you all for the kind comments. The truck is a resin copy of the AMT 63 ford unibody. The Cobra, on the little trailer is an original issue, I found in my parents attic, I had many many years ago.      The letter is a copy of the sale of the #1 Cobra Daytona coupe, for the price of, $5100.00 dollars, in 1969.  The other paper, is a list of "used race cars" for sale, in January of 1966 by Shelby American.  I believe they had to discount many of them to sell them. These were found in the book, Cobra Ferrari Wars. Thank you all for the kind words.  Steve Prideaux

Steve, awesome build!!  I am very interested in the red Cobra.  The wheel well arches do not look like standard AMT-are they?  Where did the Halibrand wheels and tires on this car come from?

Thanks for the comments.  JC. The rear wheel flares, are from the Monogram/Revell BF Goodrich Corvette.  The wheels are from the front of the Willy Borsch Fuel altered. The wheels, are available from Slixx under Competition Resin-wheels, for $1.00 per pair.I am not sure what kit the tires came from.  thanks for your interest.  Steve Prideaux

There have been many fine Cobra projects posted during the past year but this is the one that I would most like to see in person. Congratulations on a job very well done.
