Courtesy of a helping hand from none other than Peter Brock, I was able to complete the #5 Cobra Daytona driven to a class win at the 1964 Le Mans by Dan Gurney and Bob Bondurant. The differences between the #5 and the 1965 #13 (class win in 1965) were not great—black exhaust instead of white, unpainted wheels instead of white, Viking Blue instead of Guardsman Blue, no grill mounted brake duct inlets on the #5 and the like—but were important to be able to accurately represent the two cars. Talking with Peter about the differences between the two cars was a real education. It was particularly interesting to hear directly from someone who was actually there about the hows and whys of changes that were made to the car.
The new Cobra Daytona art is available as an archival pigment print or, by special order, on brushed aluminum, or as a large-scale dye-sublimated display. Photographer Bill Pack and I have also collaborated on a lenticular (holographic) version as well as our new Duetto prints which feature Bill’s photography on one half of the artwork and my illustration on the other half.
