Re: side louvers/vent covers
Every design feature on the original Cobra was functional in the race car sense, including louvers. Some ducted air to provide additional cooling to brakes (side / under louvers) to improve road race brake performance... However, some of the less authentic replicas use non-functional fascia, so they look genuine without serving any real purpose other than appearance. Louvers were also used to provide interior ventilation, engine/intake air / cooling, as well as the abovementioned brake ventilation... If you can ascertain which purpose these louvers were intended for and consult some accurate images of the intended installation area, it shouldn't be too hard to determine how the pieces fit together. How did you come by louvers without installation info anyway? And who is the supplier trying to hold you up for more $$? Let us know what you can figure out and we'll go from there!

The difference - huge. Carrol Shelby designed the power plant for the AC cobra, and the 69 AC cobra had the 426 emblem on the side, but the motor was actually a 429. Only year this was produced. To this day it is one of the fastest cars ever produced for commercial sale. The AC cobra was capable of going from dead stop Zero to 100 mph back dead stop zero in just over 11 seconds, and the story goes Mr. Shelby would tape a $100 bill to the visor on the passanger side, and tell the passanger if they could grab it as he went through the gears it was theirs - no one was able to boast this claim. The ford shelby fastback is a mustang that Carrol Shelby and Ford collaborated over. Shelby's 426 was put in the Ford Cobra, but the heavier, less aerodynamic Mustang had nothing on the AC cobra. The AC got it's body style from the old Austin Healy (I think - having a brain moment). Fundamentally, the AC cobra's are the american muscle car collecters holy grail. Everyone want's one, but no one can afford one - for an original 64 or 65 AC Cobra you can expect to pay $250,000. For the 69 with the 429 up the price to $500,000. There are a million kit car cobra's out there, and the owners act like they have something special - all they have is an over rated VW with a Cobra body kit. And boy do they get mad when you point out the imperfections!
