This is a Cobra replica (which is still more of a "real" Cobra than those Mustang things will ever be) Kit was from Factory Five Racing, which uses a lot of parts from late mod 5.0 mustang. I Modifyed engine big time, but it was still fuel injected.(22 mpg on hwy with 3.55 gears and 5 speed). Car is very reliable, but made no claims in the area of comfort. 0-60 was under 4.8 sec and 1/4 mile was 13.1 with no power shift on street tires. Was fast enough on road course to scare me (at 49 I'am getting to old to heal fast)
Fun times when "Rice boy" cars wanted to race I guess they are to young to know what a Cobra was.
