Car History Enquiry from Norway
If anyone has any information on the following vehicle can you post it and I will pass on to Knut.
I have a friend who owns a Cobra that he bought from a person in the US several years ago.
We live in Norway and have the following info about the car:
PENNSYLVANIA SPEC PLATE:
TITLE SW 11,2315 PA
VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NO PA
He thinks it is a 1966, the engine is probably a Ford 302 cu inch.
I enclose a picture of the VIN plate. A picture of the car is on my page on The Cobra Register.

I don't know about the US, but we didn't have VINs in 1966 - we had chassis numbers or commission numbers. That's not an original AC or SA chassis plate from 1966 - does anyone know of any replica builders from that period? The Ford 302 first came into production in 1968 - casting numbers for date can be found on the block, but obviously that only tells you the age of the engine.

Several old bangers, which used to include a 289
Unfortunately there isn't enough detail showing to allow anyone to make any judgement on what it is. We would need to see areas like the underside and engine compartment in order to give us any clues. What we can say with almost total certainty is that it wasn't built in 1966.
