Default 289 Body on FFR mkIV chassis

Bruce Chervenak (Mr Bruce) is putting a 289 body on my FFR mk4 chassis. Bruce just test fit one of his mule bodies on it and "it fit like a glove"...

Thumbs up

Bruce,
You got a home run here buddy. I think this is
the car FFR is missing. I love the FIA. Now all you need to do is figure out how to get FFR kits without the bodies. I want to see this Cobra when it is done

Hersh, since we're doing a Lemans top we are actually going to do this one. Sort of a FIA / Lemans combo. Billboards, Webers, etc...

I was thinking red, black, or guardsman blue but I won't fight you over it.

There was a time when I was "sure" I wanted a Daytona coupe. Then I'd go for a ride in the roadster and remember how much I liked that too. When I sold my first FFR the only way I was going to build another car is if it were a 289. Now I've got my coupe and a 289.

Bruce has been an absolute joy to work with. We'll see what kind of POS ends up on my doorstep. Seriously, see any seams there?...

Bruce is a craftsman. He knows his S--t so to speak.
Jimi, I'm happy for you. Take lots of pics please.

Mr Bruce, I'm glad to this happening. I always thought you really needed to show how good this body can look when finished, and then guys will be lining up to get one. Can't wait to see it finished.

Nice, split trunk lid and all.
Are those" Howe" hubs, & are you going to finish the car with them?

The chassis / body in the garage is sitting on blocks without suspension. The wheels are shoved under there to get an idea about space available. The car will have the FFR pin drive setup with IRS.

I don't mean to steal this thread, but this is to attest to the quality of Bruce's , I'm sorry "Mr Bruce's" work. An absolute craftsman. I was reluctant to buy one of his bodies but took a trip out to Pittsburgh and was blown away . I ordered one and here it is. John O

John, that looks awesome! Do you have any pictures of the rear?

Paint is something I'm thinking about... "So and so is going to want this much to do that..." Then you look at those seams and where they are compared to the FFR body. I've gotta believe that changes the paint cost ballgame quite a bit. It looks like the seam on the cowl would go below the window gasket even.

Great stuff.

I would love to build a 289 using an historic car to copy from, having just finished my 427. They're just exciting and full of features different to the 427. Combining Bruce's body onto a FFR has been made possible now with up to 6 FFR kit's being constructed in Australia going through engineering and other roadworthy requirements.

Regards.

It would be awesome to build a Dragon Snake with one of these setups.
