Cobra CSX 2128 was originally built as a Team Shelby racecar for the 1963 Sebring race for drivers Dan Gurney, Lew Spencer and Dave McDonald. To get it ready in time it was painted with a spray can. The car went on to wide exposure on the cover of the “Hey Little Cobra” record album. Allen Grant was a Shelby employee who aspired to be a team driver. He sold CSX 2128 to Coventry Motors with the provision that he be the driver. Allen Grant was out to impress Carroll Shelby with his racing ability so to make sure his Cobra was as visible as possible on the race track, he had his buddy George Lucas an aspiring movie maker to design an eye-popping livery. Built from AMT kit.

I know this CBP has pretty much came to a stop, but I a going to do one, since someone is doing the build I am about to start, might as well do it in here, up next is the 65 Shelby GT 350R , I have already started getting the mold lines removed, I have a few plans,  some I am not sure of yet.  I want to put a NASCAR ford engine in it, change the wheels and tires,  color unsure yet.

 

I will get pics up when my new camera gets here

Starting this one ,   my plans for it is to swap motors, I a going to use a NASCAR Ford engine ,  I want to some Shelby seats from one of the newer Revell Mustangs kits, and do a wheel/tire change, I have had some sets of XS tunning wheels that I have not had anything to use them on, but they are the perfect size for this one.    Color, I am think white with blue stripes

Getting the body ready for paint
350b.jpg
chassis getting painted
350c.jpg
and interior
350d.jpg
and here are the seats that I am thinking of using
350e.jpg
the only problem is the head rest makes them to tall , so to solve that problem, cut of the head rest, and fill the hole

JW, I love the color, and the finish of Your GT 500. Everything else on Your build is looking great as well.

 

Phil, I just bought the Shelby annual, read the article on the "The Executor", and to see Your finished replica is pretty awsum!!!

 

Great work guys!!
