I was just thinking, what a great resource. we start out talking about a lifts and lunch then get down and dirty into the esoterics of such a rare car. with lots of personal experience, not internet knowledge. lot of great car guys here. we will keep it that way. trolls and wannabees can stay on that other site.
Simeone's is CSX2287 if I remember correctly...have to GOOGLE it to confirm.
All Daytona coupe bodies were hand made in Italy, supervised by Peter Brock.
Toggie and I exchanged a few PMs about real vs replica Shelby cars. As far as Cobras go, there are a few quick ways to tell them apart.
From 30ft away, I would look for lugnuts. If a Cobra has them, it's not real. Cobras had centerlock wheels.
Another giveaway is whether it uses square section frame tubing. If it does, it's a copy. Cobras had round section tubing.
Daytona coupes are based on the CSX2000 series MK I and II cars. They should all have *transverse* leaf springs. So if you see a Daytona coupe with beautiful, polished coilovers, it's likely not real.
