    Anyone seen this one?

    Not mine and nothing to to with me apart from I did get my Cobra from a seller originally advertised on this site.
    Sorry if it has been posted before.

    That's the trouble with you Sailors, long hair, quick zips and, Oohh, look at the size of that!!

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Some pedant points for pursists:

    No FIA suitcase bulge behind the seats.
    Rear firewall should be covered in vynil.
    Fuel pumps are modern items.
    Battery located behind the seats on original cars.

    But I like the vynil matt in the boot.

    I'm assuming the FI system they feed is not original either!

    Correct - but it is nonetheless a lovely piece of engineering.

    It might not have the suitcase dents, but I'd still have it in a heartbeat. I mean, if I had the money. Dave's waiting list is getting too long these days

    I was offering my authenticity comments for anyone with a wallet large enough wishing to bid - caveat emptor etc.

    I wanted to fit a set of ITBs, they look great, or a Holley EFI, but heck, the budget was big enough as it was, and I still have other things to do:
    finish the hardtop conversion and get the car painted....and deal with the small manner of the oil leak on the take off plate, which is really pissing me off!

    Which take-off plate do you have? Hm, should probably be in its own thread somewhere but hey.. drift. I have the Trans-Dapt one, but haven't fitted that yet (the engine, as built, has the standard oil filter fitting - will need changing as the oil filter would hit the chassis)

    42 gallon tank!
    Rather more than £200 to fill it if you want to risk driving round surrounded by that much fuel!
