Cool

Iíve been building my LS427 for about 4 years now. Bought the Frame from Lonestar when they were in the old building at Katy Rd. Itís been a long long road and if it werenít for Steve I wouldnít be here right now participating in this forum because the car would not have been, period. I have about 8 hours left on the car before it goes to the paint shop. It starts, it MOVES, I just have the bugs to work out.

Hope everyone is safe.
Remember #3.

Cool

My snake is the one you see in Lone Star Classic's advertisements, "featured auto" in Peterson's 11/98 Kit Car Cobra Guide, the Complete Guide to Cobra Replicas cover, and driven at the start of the first Shadetree Mechanic that had a Cobra build-up (the show that is on the video tape they send out). It is a show-grade Bright Atlantic Blue Metallic with pearl stripes LS427 Competition (almost an Elite) with the prototype optional hardtop and air conditioning. The engine is a 425HP Lingafelter 428 Cobrajet with Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, MSD ignition, 950cfm Holley Projection carb.

Hmmm, my first time using the new format board. Let's see how this goes.

Hey Guys, You know what I drive so I won't spend any energy describing it. Just glad to see Steve etc online. Welcome.

All for now.

Talking forthcoming cobra

I've been researching, planninng, collecting, and buying for over a year now and finally . . . FINALLY!!! . . . I'm building in January, 2002. Using the in-house build program at Lone Star. Installing an EFI (the bulk of research and planning) 396 stroker with AFR 185's and a host of other hi-po goodies (should provide lots of low and midrange torque and somewhere between 450-500 hp at the flywheel). TKO w/ Steeda close-ratio Tri-ax shifter. Lots of Finish Line and Lokar beyond the Lone Star norm. Its gonna be a comp kit with a ceramic coated 8.8 rear sporting 3.55's and the four-link/panhard setup. Full chrome rollbar (protection for the wife and myself). Boyd Coddington Smoothie II's (these have a smooth lip and smooth rim unlike the regular Smoothies by BC): 17x10's and 17x8's rear and front respectively w/ BFG KDWS 285/40's and 255/45's. Using Autometer Cobra replica gauges (mechanical). Aeromotive, FMS, SVO, Russel, Ididit, MAC, March, Lecarra, Bosch, K&N, Anderson, Simpson . . . all a host of others. The only thing I can't claim to have come to a conclusion on is the color: solid yellow/black int or blue/white Lemans/black int. I guess I'll figure that out after the build.


Finally . . . FINALLY!!!, it's together and sitting at Lone Star as I write. Soon the car will be off to paint where David Brady will work his magic and transform black gel coat into candy grand blue w/ pearl ghost stripes. The build went well w/ the Tremec TKO giving way to a Richmond 6-speed which required notching the frame to make room for the shift linkage which sits outside the trans housing. So the hood would fit, the EFI 396 stroker required being lowered 1.75" and the body raised by .5". This maneuver necessitated cutting and reshaping the trans tunnel to allow for correct shifter throw. Did I mention the Canton shallow sump oil pan? Anyway, it's official. I'm a Lone Star owner.

I just got back from Dallas this weekend with my new LS427 Competition kit. I'm building a small block 427 based on a Ford Motorsport aluminum block, Trick Flow TW-R heads, solid roller camshaft, and Eagle 4340 rods and crank. I've got a Tremec TKO, and a custom "Grand National" floating axle Ford 9" rear with 3.90 gears and a Detroit Locker. I'd like to do some road racing and autocrossing with it when it's finished.

Thanks to PJ at Lone Star for the sale - he is a great salesman to work with!

Just sent in my deposit on a 427 Comp. kit. I will pick it up at the end of march (I have to finish a couple of projects first) 460 rollor motor, TKO tranny, 9" rear with 3.55 ratio, Boyd 17" smoothies, Lazer red with Pearl White stripes, Vintage AC/Heat/Defrost. I hope to have it finished by my birthday (Aug 1) Building the motor now, I hope I have enough money left to buy the car.

I bought the LS427 kit 3/28/02, it is 98% done. I am working on the body now hoping for a red with white LeMans stripe paint job in early December. Black interior. I have a hard top for the snake.

I have a competition frame, Aldan adjustable coil overs in all four corners, the four link suspension, 8.8" 1:3.55 gear ratio, posi rear end. T5 trans. Ford Racing 10.5" HP clutch and LS hydraulic linkage, The engine is a 302 CI 9:1 comp. ratio block, Ford Racing E303X roller cam, Ford Racing roller rocker arms 1.6:1 ratio, Edelbrock Performer RPM heads, intake manifold and 750 CFM carb, MSD 6AL ignition and billet distributor, Moroso 8 qrt baffled pan and windage tray, Ford Racing oil pump (not high vol) and Ford Racings high volume water pump. Cool tube for water hoses and a remote oil filter coupled to a oil cooler, Griffin 400 HP AL radiator. Brushed Stainless dash insert with VDO gauges, wipers and heater. Did I forget anything?

I have had a blast building the car. Many thanks to Steve, Brian, Dennis and the rest of the gang at Lone Star, they are awesome. I am going to play with the car for a little while, show it a few times and sell it, so I can build another.

I picked up my LS427 Comp kit on 10 April 2002. I took me 4 1/2 months to put together in a ONE CAR garage. I'm running a full roller 302 mated with a Tremac 5-speed, 3.73 gears in the 9" rear end. Nothing to radical, but when I drop the throttle see goes!! Didn't want to build somthing to overpowering this time around. I got close to 500 trouble free miles on her so far and each one has been a blast. Thanks to Steve and Brian it has been a very pleasent experience.

Load Clear...........

Steve, Get that GT-40 kit ready, that will be my next project!!!!

Feb. 17, 2002 Update. No it's not done yet!!! Why because on December 16, the house and shop were flooded, fortunately the Cobra was up on jack stands in the process of wet sanding the primer when the flood struck. I have been working double time on repairing the house and shop. All of the repairs are just about done so I can go back to finishing up the snake. It yells at me everytime I walk by it, Finish Me, Finish Me. It won't be long now.

Have some-day-to-be bright silver with gunmetal stripes LS427comp. LSC#247 registered in Wyoming as 2002 LSC427 with 1970 engine. Bought complete kit from Lone Star. Kit was delivered April 4, 2002. Drove car out of my garage the Sunday after Labor Day, 2002. Still tweeking and debugging while have a ball driving. Paint job should be done "when I get a round tuit" Just happened to have a really clean Chevy 454/Turbo 400 sitting in the back yard from previous sand drag race use. Just happened to find a home for it in the Cobra. Had to do conciderable de-tuning for street use. Downgraded to Federal Mogul 9.5c.r. pistons, A-1 hydrolic cam .500 lift, Wieand Stealth manifold, Edelbrock 750 carb. Currie prepared 9inch Ford rearend, came with 3.73s since replaced with3.00s. For those of you in the know, the rest of the goodies usually listed came with the kit. It was so nice not having to find a doner car, spend countless hours in junkyards, or chalkup major time on the mail order phone. Other than a somewhat poor assembly manual, the kit went together VERY well.

The manual could use a little help but the phone support and digital photos via email were a great help. My kit went together sweet. I am just finishing up the wet sanding and I need to patch a hundred pin holes, the off to the paint shop, maybe next week. I got my test panel back for the paint shop on Saturday and Inferno Red with a Pink Pearl tinted white stripes looks like the way for me to go. Actually the red hides imperfections pretty well. Good body work takes lots of time. Much more than I thought. Have fun with the snake. I get out to Green River from time to time. Maybe I'll look you up next time Iam out.
