1968 AC Cobra 427 S/C COB 6132 the last chassis, with its all-aluminum body, ever built by AC Cars, Thames Ditton, UK and built for Paramount Pictures, for "Those Daring Young Men in Their Jaunty Jalopies" (released internationally as Monte Carlo or Bust). When you stuff a big Ford 427 engine in it, it goes real fast. As you see, going real fast requires that it gulp a lot of air that's an impressive array of downdraft carburetors.  And then there's the other end. It's alimentary, in the automotive sense.
