The Last 500

The Last “500”

Hal Keck wheels his Cobra 427 into the 90 under a hot August sun in the 1965 Watkins Glen 500 miles race followed by the # 18 Cobra co-driven by Sidney Finkel, Ed Lowther, and Bob Nagel. Keck and Oscar Koveleski took the checkered flag after more than 5 hours. The number 88 car won 9 races that year and won the SCCA championship. Jim Danzer was the mechanic. Hal also co-drove the Cobra Daytona coupe in 1965, taking a first in the GT class at the 24 Hours of Daytona. The following year, the Glen 500 was shortened to a 500 Kilometer race. Koveleski went on to win the SCCA National Championship in 1969.
The first several big block cars Carroll Shelby made were full race cars, and this one was chassis # CSX 3008. While most of the cars stayed with Shelby or went to larger teams, Keck’s was privately owned.  
Painted by artist, Robert Gillespie.
