Including the one Carrol happened to find frames for 20 years later? How about the Paramount cars? Didn't Shelby also do a couple in the 70's? We'll see if we can get two responses on the exact count to agree.

This was discussed over on CC awhile back.
There were around 113 original CSX3??? 427sc w/427 engines made.
There were alot of 427 roadsters converted over to 427sc and 427sc w/428.

I was talking to a mechanic last night who said he was working on a Panterra(Spelling?)
Made inthe 70's with a ford engine, is this corrct? I wondered what this mid engine car looked like.

Right click and "Save As" -

Someone having fun in a Pantera :eek:

Plenty of info:

http://www.panteracars.com/

Stunning car in its original shape, got steadily heavier and gained unfortunate aerodynamic add-ons (a la Countach). Simple components (Ford) but hideously rust prone :(

btw: How many Cobras ? 6 replies - 6 different answers. The truth is out there (possibly...)

Judging by current demand? Not nearly enough. :D

Hmmmm... It wouldn't be all that hard to convert an FFR coupe into a "replica" of the Willment. Windshield looks like the biggest hurdle. What do you think, UK?

I think I have enough work ahead of me !! There would need to be a different windscreen (It looks a lot like a Triumph item to me) and a considerable amount of work to the rear end



Given unlimited funds, I think this would be my choice of coupe:



the AC98, AC Cars' own coupe - which, in '64, achieved 185mph on public roads :eek:
