He's talking about the article in the FMWire section.

I thought it was unusual for it to have a 3 speed auto too. It mush have been his personal preference. I have only heard of the original cobras having four speeds, but i could be wrong. It's not like he had to "settle" for any tranny back in 66. I'm sure he could have had his choice of even a five speed back then.

Shelby built two automatic equipped Cobras. One for him and the other was for Bill Cosby. It is the subject of the comedy album "200 MPH" I believe the whereabouts for Bill's is not known. Stu

I think the biggest reason was the dual supercharged 427 Side oiler. With 800 or so HP in a car that weighs as little as a Cobra. It's called point and shoot.

Most of the GT350H Mustangs were C-4's. I don't remember the mix, C-4 to 4-speed but, the auto's way out numbered the sticks.
