Ordered my FFR three weeks ago. May 26, 2001 ship date. Options so far include dual roll bars, body cutouts. Will run stock 302 EFI. Project is a family deal. Looking for a unique street ride, not a pavement pounder.
Will be posting items at

What are you doing the FFR's already have there own place on Cobraforum, and now you want them to take over Clubcobra? They always make fun of me when I tell them I'm running a Chevy engine in my Cobra Replica.

I recieved my kit in mid october. Here are some of the specs.
I am not using a donor(I know that was stupid!)Motor is a 351w bored and stroked to 427. Speedmotive did a very nice job should run at 550hp. The complete system is ceramic coated. I just sent the body to the paint shop-going with black with metallic gold stripes. T-5 5speed 323 rear gears-pro shocks on all four corners. Factory Five complete tubular suspension-Griffen radiator-AutoMeter Phantom gauges(200mph speedo). Cobra 17"x9" chrome spoke wheels with 295 rear and 275 fronts. Hope it all turns out looks good so far!!!
