FYI, I don't know who the maker of your body is.  But a maroon painted lexan 1:24 version of this cobra body with extra frontend air scoop just went on eBay today, 2/27/16.

Estrela made the body, as well as those of all their RTR cars, in Brazil. It is not a backpour of any American-made body, it is original.

Thanks for anwers my question.

 

 

 

John: The body of ebay are the car of Ken Miles, but it isn´t the car that made Estrela. Estrela didn´t reproduced the pipes of Cobra.

 

 

 

Philippe: Estrela take more parts and cars around the world. 

 

Gilbert, Revell, AMT, Cox Strombecker, Fleischmann, Faller and made the best Slot Cars in scale 1/32.

 

I quit in SlotForum and they said that body is made for Auto-Hobbies in Scale 1/24 and 1/32.

 

I have look in some vintage books but i haven´t found any fhoto of Cobra Auto-Hobbies body.

I think that the others vacuforme cars are designed also for Auto-Hobbies, but I can´t guarantee it.

 

 

Thanks for all, Beni.

The real car in the pictures looks more like a modified 289 cobra! :)
