I remember seeing this car in pieces over at Stewart Hall's shop in Benicia Calif about 10 years ago.  It was green then.

It was a neat and unique Cobra for decades and now it looks like countless replicas.

Here is a screenshot of it when it was over at Canepa's with the Belanger's and a photo I took at Stewart Hall's shop when 2493 was in pieces.

Yes, I agree it was unique!  Looking at the current shots appears to confirm the Registry's note about the roll bar being installed in a "forward" location compared to the way the Shelby guys installed them in Venice, (that is if my eyes are not deceiving me).  Other chassis photos taken at Canepas and Halls confirm the unusual installation. The car spent a long time here in California.
