I do have a question about the 2 cars in the foreground of this picture. Both appear to be Cobra coupes, but there's a difference in the gas filler location. One centered, one to the right. I need some edu-macation on Cobras!

The one without sheetmetal is called the Flip Top Cobra or "Turd". It isn't the most attractive Cobra ever built and it was a prototype if I remember correctly.

The one beside it is CSX3002 that was truly the first 427 Cobra built. It had a 427 Chassis with 289 bodywork that was modified for the Chassis. It has a flat bottom front end nose opening, square oil cooler, front brace roll bar, and 289 dash and gauges. It was at the entry of MCCAN a few years ago. It also had a dry sump oil cooler. It was on the cover of an issue of 1965 Car and Driver with Ken Miles driving it.

It is a very cool Cobra with the Le Mans filler cap.

I'm not sure why the Flip Top Cobra has the center fill fuel cap.

I'll take a guess at it. . .

For those racing Cobras that had a fuel cell, the gas cap was in the center of the trunk lid. For those with just a regular gas tank, the gas cap was on the passenger side rear fender so the trunk was functional.
