This is an original Ford Tri-Power Cobra Kit. Not a pieced together reproduction. I purchased this beauty as NOS in 1999. . The previous owner stated that the Cobra Kit sat on display in an auto mechanic trade school for 35 years. Check out the factory ink stamps still visible on both the front and sides of the carburetors! The intake has the original Buddy Bar Casting underneath and a 9-64 date code on the thermostat housing. I ran the tri-power flawlessly for four months on my K code 289 hipo Mustang. I noticed that the original cork seals and gaskets were beginning to leak so I took it off and put it on the shelf. The carbs will need a rebuild kit prior to running again. Super rare opportunity to own a factory Cobra Kit in this condition! From the information below, I believe the carburetors indicate a January 1965 build date. Pics are located at our favorite auction Item Number 2427648962
Thanks RB
