Default Buying an Everett-Morrison

I am about to buy an Everett-Morrison used complete kit car with a 5.0 Cobra engine. Can someone tell me about the relative quality of this kit versus other brands like FF or Superperformance? Thanks Ron

I like mine. I've had it for 6 years. I think they're under rated and have the best quality fiberglass of any replica made. But then I might be biased

I've had mine since 2000 and it was built in 1988...Great as far as I'm concerned, on and off road....

I have an E-M that I bought partially completed. The components that are a basic part of their kit in my opinion are of excellent quality. The fiberglass is great and the tubular frame is very rigid. Regardless of the replica manufacturer, the quality will be determined by the parts and workmanship that go into finishing the project. The individual I bought mine from placed emphasis on cosmetics and trailered the car to shows. The brakes were terrible and the transmission leaked and the shifter would lock in gear. Fortunately, the engine runs great (I talked to the shop that built it). Finally, from a price perspective, I bought it right, so the money I've spent subsequently fixing things hasn't gotten me in too deep. I hope I've given you some points to consider in your decision.

I agree with Chaplain it's not always the manufacturer's fault that there is a problem it can usually be tracked down to the assembler of said kit.

Default My E & M

I found a rolling chassis setting under a tarp, early E&M about 1993 and after going over it totally from brakes to radiator I find it to be an excellent product. Very strong frame, easy to work with. Mine now has a well worked FE stroker and all the right stuff right down to the tremec 3550. I am ready for the body and final trim. E&M was not too helpful when I called, faxed and emailed. Maybe the new location in Texas and new owners haven't quite gotten a grasp on things yet. Anybody out there purchase from E&M recently?

Parksparky for the life of me I can not remember where. Maybe Craigslist. Someone had a EM body for sale never used. I saw the ad about 2 weeks ago.

Smile E-m

I owned one a few years back and I have have worked on 3 or 4 in the last five years. Had one in my shop two weeks ago. They are good cars. The kit is high quality. One had a 8.8 rear end and the others had 9". All build in the early 90's.

Like Chaplain and RustBob said, it's who build the car.
