Default Who are you?

Hello!

I wanted to see if the members of this club are willing to post their Cobra and a brief description of their set up. I noticed that the participation on this form is unusually low, I’m wondering if members may have sold their vehicle, or lost interest of the form?

Winter is coming and this is a good time for the existing active members to join and share.

Looking forward to everyone’s response!

Hi Hapnyny, I've been away for a while due to restoring a couple cobras. I bought a factory five mk4 289 fia a few years back. I restored it, sold it and then purchased a factory five mk4 427 80% completed. I spent the last year finishing it and accumulated 4k miles dialing in the car. So it's been good returning and reading up on everyone's builds.

You have a beautiful cobra Hapnyny, I like your color combination. It's nice to see a different color scheme/combo. Have a good day

Hello Hapnyny,
Mine's an Australian built (mostly by me) 289FIA replica. The body came originally from Mr. Bruce (in Philadephia), further refined by PACE in Queensland, Australia; chassis is a semi monocoque, all aluminium alloy, also from PACE, and most of the further assembly/fabrication/construction is by me here in Adelaide, South Australia.

It's now at my favorite mechanic's workshop waiting for engine and gearbox (302W and Toploader) to be fitted.

Some pics....

Default Almost a F-1 Driver ;)

Who am I, easy question to answer (Most of you can answer that it, although answer's my differ ) Better Question? What am I. A Sports Car Guy though & though. Been in this hobby since I can remember (5yo) @13yo a famous race car driver, told me "You have the Racer Gene" From that day on, my goal was to fulfill that, of course I saw F-1 seasons in my future, work my way up the rank's. Soon found it took more than talent, MONEY seem the ticket to get there. Poof, that dreams gone, so raced with the best I could afford. Do I regret my life, not in the least. Met the BEST people (points added if they were Dog people too ) Told myself the last sports car would be a Cobra, So Lifes GOOD !! Pacific Roadster, 347 Dart Stoker, 3550 (Blueprinted) 5-speed, Silver with gray ghost stripes. my 3rd Cobra.

I wish I had a finished product....I'm smack dab in the middle of doing the body work on a Shell Valley 1965 Cobra Rep. I will be putting a W.351 in it thought, of course the engine is on back order from Blueprint. I guess it gives me ample sanding time. Enjoy the winter. Shell Valley, Dana has been a real joy to work with, as this is my first car project ever. I have a good start on the trunk, but not finished on the bottom!

Owned a Shell Valley for 13 years. Great car. Dana was always great to answer any questions. Now awaiting a Backdraft from VMS.

Howdy! This is my brand new Superformance (SPO3631) MKIII. It arrived in August and I'm still waiting on my Roush 427SR motor. It will be mated up to a Tremec TKX 5-speed. It's running 18" Toyo R888Rs all round with 315's in the back and 275's in the front.

I thought the wait for it to arrive was hard - having the car in hand with no engine is -way worse....

Retired Medical Equipment Technician that has been a "hack" with cars as long as I can remember.

Life has been one twist after another for the last 15 yrs. My 1st ride was in an original BRG 427 street cobra in 1970. Had the bug for one ever since. For my 60th BD, my wife rented an FFR Cobra for a day for me (She sent me to a Bondurant Racing school for my 50th).


That gave me the bug. But the FFR car as well as most others were a bit short in leg room for my 6' 2" frame.

I came across an unfinished 1990 Classic Cobra 427 kit. Towed it home in 2014 and until recently have not really had a chance to finish it.

As found in a garage near O'Hare.


IN my workshop








Hoping by summer to have it on the road. It has a 90 5.0HO w/TFS alum heads (ported), extrude honed lower w/JEGS/CarTech upper, T5Z trans and 5 pin halibrand style wheels to go on. Plan on Viking Blue paint with tan interior.
