Does anyone know the chassis number (VIN) of the light blue James Cottingham/Andrew Smith Cobra (car# 203)?

RS

PS: Internet videos & photos show 2349 quitting the Tour in an unusual way.

No but they were one of several to hit the barrier on one of the special stage hairpins.

The Cobra registered 27 PE is reported to be CSX2232 imported from Colombia in the 70s and previously registered AFM 42A and RSW 11. The Thames Ditton Cobra Register lists 2232 as "believed to have been destroyed in the 60s.[Replica in the UK]" and its Replicas Appendix has "VIN Asserted CSX2232    Date Mid 80s Built for Roger Wright, reportedly using some parted out remains of the 6059 replica. Chassis and body thought to have been made by Brian Angliss. May originally have been numbered 6059. RHD."

It is suggested that this in-the-public-domain-for-many-years information is not be correct. Further information is expected in due course and I will advise if the Register wording is changed..
