The little scoop on the bottom of the nose for the oil cooler...

Was this on the original?

My dad used to race SCCA slalom stuff, and some of the guys had Cobras. He said he does not remember that lower scoop.

Found some old pics.

289:



427:



I don't see it.

Also, check this out:



Can you guess what it is?

The original 260 and some of the 289's did NOT have the scoop. I have seen several books that show the development of the car and the addition of different body modifications. I wanted the early look on my car (but not the slab side) That is why I took the oil scoop, brake duct, hood scoop off. I have also found the early cars did NOT have stripes. Anyway here is my variation (as seen many time before)

Top car is a 'narrow hip' 427, not a 289. Note the right hand drive.
