Above are some photos showing the real Bordinat Cobra and Cougar II together. Plus one of Gene Bordinat with the Bordinat Cobra. Gene Bordinat was head of Ford Styling when these cars were designed and built. And are both built on Shelby Cobra chassis. Hence forth the reason for calling the roaster version the Bordinat Cobra. Why they called the coupe version Cougar II I do not know?

Another model that deserves to be a 1/1! :wub:  Good idea for a variation on one of those belly-button Cobra kit cars.

Great job!Outstanding body work for such a fragile body.I am also pleased to see that I'm not the only one that has sanded into a big pile of body putty and found a car hiding inside.All kidding aside this is one to be proud of.

The Cougar name was one of the labels being considered for what eventually became the productionnMustang.Atfer that name was rejected it was applied to the Cougar show car.
