I need some pics for an article I am doing if any of you can help me out.
I need pics of the different style roofs available on 64-67 Cobra's.
There was one soft top, and two fiberglass hard tops as I recall. One was kind of a staright up bobbed unit, and the other was a fastback type that went down over the trunk.
Any help would be appreciated as always.

That's the type the Dragonsnake ran. See:

> and the other was a fastback type that went down over the trunk.

That's what the AC team ran at LeMans in 1963. I believe it was aluminum,
not fiberglass, though. The fastback top extended back far enough that
the trunk lid was shortened and hinged at the bottom. See:

I've probably got something at home but I'm sure the guys at:

www.clubcobra.com

will have better pictures and info.

There were two different styles of conventional hardtops used - one with a "small window", and one with a "large window". The larger window wraps around the "C" pillar slightly.

I will e-mail you some pics.
