Tuesday trivia. Last week's question: My Dad has owned French, German, Italian, as well as 5 different American manufacturer's products, yet has used the same brand key fob for all. What did dear ol' Dad drive? Anwer: Jeep. Produced by Ford, Bantam, Willys, AMC and Chrysler. AMC and Jeep were bought out by Renault, then Chrysler. Chrysler and Jeep sold out to Daimler Benz, then an investment firm ( oh, make that 6 American companies! ) then to FIAT. This is beside the fact that Jeep has been produced in many other countries including Beijing, Iran, Egypt, India, and the Netherlands just to name a few.

Wow!! I only had identified 4! It is interesting to see the " rebirth " of 4 bangers in large sedans, especially in the E class and 7 series.  I wonder what the take rates are? Meanwhile, GM has put the minuscule 1.4, four cylinder turbo ( 148 hp, 216 ft/lbs ) in many of their large offerings.  For comparison, The 230, 250 I6 produced between 140-155 hp, an average 1968 Chevelle tipped the scales above 3100 pounds. Today's Impala runs the scale to 3600 - 3800 pounds and is available with the 1.4 .  Hummmm.

The Quality and Prestige Your Customers Expect 


 1963 Shelby Cobra Roadster CSX2197

 In July 1964, Mark C. Tower purchased CSX 2197 from Crater Lake Motors in Medford, Oregon. According to the Shelby Registry, the car was delivered in red over black leather and equipped with the Class A accessories package, which included chrome rocker covers, white sidewall tires, luggage rack, radio, and 5-quarts of anti-freeze which brought the invoice total to $5493.05. Mr. Tower owned the car briefly, and by 1966, CSX 2197 was held by Howard Nettleton of Tacoma, Washington. Shortly after that, it went to John Stevens Jensen of California where it was registered “VNN 794”. Mr. Stevens owned the car for several years until he was killed in a road accident in another Cobra. From 1981, it passed through several more known short-term owners. Along the way, it was noted to have just 9,700 miles on the odometer though it did show some signs of past front-end damage. In the late 1980s, CSX 2197 would find a long-term home with Bill Kemper, a highly respected Cobra expert and restorer. In the early 1990s, he embarked on a long-term restoration, working on the car as time permitted, taking the utmost care as it was a personal project.

According to Mr. Kemper, the car had been unused since suffering a relatively mild accident, and he believed the sub-10,000 miles on the odometer to be accurate. He reported that the Cobra was entirely stripped down, the chassis properly repaired and precisely reinforced and updated based on Kemper’s specifications by Baurle Auto Sport of Addison, Il. The body was completely restored, with great care given to preserving as much original alloy as possible. The front outer panels from the doors forward were replaced, but the doors, rear clip, footwells and engine bay panels are said to be comprised of original metal, painstakingly restored to a very high standard and returned to its original red color. Today it presents in stunning condition, having been used gently in the hands of its most recent owner.

Kemper, of course, had the engine balanced, blueprinted and completely rebuilt along with the gearbox and rear differential. It extremely well-presented with much of the original hardware restored and replated, and detailed with correct labels and markings. It retains its correct, early-type Harrison aluminum radiator as well as the generator which was unique to these early Cobras.

The interior is finished in black leather as originally equipped and features correct Smiths gauges with the wonderful Rotunda Tachometer to the left of the column (Shelby switched to Stewart-Warner gauges and Ford electrics approximately three cars later). The steering wheel and shift knob are also correct for the car’s original specification. This fabulous Cobra has seen only light use since its world-class restoration was completed, and the leather and upholstery remain in excellent condition. Included in the sale is a full top and side-curtain set, as well as the original early-type jack, firewall mounted grease gun, and a set of restored King Dick spanners.
