Default "powered by chev"

Whilst wandering around Wakefield at the Nationals I was shown a "Cobra Powered by Chev" (or words to that effect) plaque, and I was wondering where it came from, and are they available? Thanks, Peter

You could put 'Ford" badges on, and hope no one notices?

Hey there Peter, Gavin is the one you want, he may still have some spare ones in his shed.

He had a local screen printer/sign writer make them up, I happily have one on my dash

Default Gavin?

Gee you Ford Guys are Funny, for a moment I thought I'd logged onto the "Melbourne Comedy Festival" web site by mistake, The problem with the Ford donk is I live in Victoria, and as we can't register older motors therefore the only 2 Ford options are the BIG V8 (wont fit in my Harrison) and the XR6 Turbo straight six, which is to tall and would need to be dry sumped, though I do like the idea of "dial a Horsepower option" with adjustable boost. To convert the 6 would probably cost more than I paid for the Gen IV, 6 litre (VE) Crate motor, and I'd lose a lot of boot space. The other option is a Lexus V8. but I think even you Ford Guys would prefer the "Stars and Stripes" to the "Land on the rising Sun" Option. (when I say "Stars & Stripes" I actually mean Mexico, for the L98). Back to the topic!! How do I contact "Gavin" is that his name or call sign? Thank you.

Hey Stumpeater,
I had a number of them made up for a few club members for the nationals for a bit of a stir.
Any engraver or trophy maker could do one for you, They just scanned a 'powered by puss' plaque that I had and replaced the 'puss' with CHEV in matching text.
Simple and effective!

There was a 283 Chevy powered AC that pre-dates the Cobra...

There's a thread around here somewhere about it.

Nothing to be ashamed of, the 283 was a fine motor. First engine in the US to achieve 1hp per cubic inch. (1957)
