Here's another little project that we've got on the go at the moment. It was bought for the right price at an offer we couldn't refuse :lol: . Work will start on this one in earnest once Owains FIA is out of the workshop.

The aim is to replicate the look of this car, as I think this is just gorgeous. CSX 2433

ah stoppit - cobra porn overload :)

That looks like a very good quality body molding Nige from what i can see if the photos. It looks like the one Adrian Shropshire (on here) was selling???

Quite a bit of change need to the body to reflect CSX 2433 - really looking forward to seeing this progress.

keep the pics coming

Hi Gary, the body/chassis is a Hawk. Being a body/paint guy, I enjoy modifying bodies anyway, here's a link to my Viper ( http://www.cobraclub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=59029 ) so this is really quite straight forward.

Gary, I've actually got one of Adrians bodies and hardtop here for another project that I'm going to be building for myself with an original style 289 round tube chassis. This body is also very good and I'm pleased with the quality of it. For the price you really can't go wrong with one of these.

In my humble opinion CSX2433 is one of the best looking cobras out there -and the colour is gorgeous.

Who ever this gets built for (;)), will be a very fortunate person; not only because it is one of the best looking cobras out there but because it would have been built by someone who has the expertise to do so and an eye for quality and authenticity!

The queue is behind me chaps.

This car is now up for sale in the part built for sale section of this forum as I need to sell it to build my aluminium Cobra
