    Most likely, some of the ones you have seen are either faded or replacements. There have been a number of replacements over the years. Also, simple fading could be the culprit.

    IIRC, the correct color is a charcoal grey. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I bought repro tail light lenses and they are charcoal grey with stripes, but alot of the cobras have true black with stripes. I was wondering which is right or original. I like the black better so the gray being correct makes sense. Thank you for the clarification.

    Ya, it's not a jet black, but not a full on gray either. I would say it leans more towards a dark charcoal gray then a black.

    Agreed. Haven't specifically looked at my taillights in quite a while. :)

    Meh, me either. I just remember when I had a NOS set, I had them next to a black Maglite for reference, and the flashlight was a bit darker. I dunno, I suppose I should go look at my black car..............lol!

    I have seen several of the sub 1,000 range cobras that have a snake with the build number on the dash instead of the pony. If it was one I would think owner only but I have seen 6 over the years all in different parts of the country and the emblems were identical. Anyone know anything about this?

    Someone was making them at one time or another. Coincidence that ones you saw were on on earlier models. Was not any kind of factory option.

    Gotcha. How about "factory" seat covers? I also heard they were either dealer provided or done for the first 1,000?

    If anything other than opal grey leather, grey cloth or black cloth, then dealer added.
