  1. The 260/289 Cobra Roadsters and coupes were built off the early AC leaf spring chassis's. The 427 roadsters had updated frames and suspensions, built to withstand the increase in HP and torque of the 427's, which included coil sprung suspensions.
  2. The cobras were only "transverse" in the sense of which way the springs pointed. They were more like "1/4 Elliptic" springs. They WERE leaf springs, but were clamped in the middle, and they acted as the springs and the upper control arms, with corresponding "A" frames as the bottom links, and hydraulic dampeners, (shocks) The early IRS Corvettes were opposite of the that, in that the spring was on the bottom, with the control arms on the top, with shocks. The Corvettes had regular uneven control arms with coil springs and hydraulic dampeners up front
