Well first you get a Crown Vic. Then you sell it and use the money to buy a Cobra. Boom.

Yes. There are many people on CC with answers.

I suspect you're looking for more than that, but your question is cryptic and general in nature. Suggestions:
  1. Be specific with your questions, IOW, exactly what do you want to know.
  2. Be clear about how you phrase your questions.

In order to get this started, there are no kits that will convert a Crown Vic (of any year) into a Cobra. Having said that, there are some components which may be usable in a Cobra, but very few. The engine, probably, and transmission if your plan is to go with an automatic transmission. The rear axle & differential are quite possible, though a lot depends upon the kit you're using and the year of the Crown Vic.

Factory Five Racing uses the 'donor' model as one of way of building a replica, but their donors are Mustangs - of specific years. You might start by downloading a copy of the FFR Assembly Manual and going through it - all 473 pages.

Default Crown to Cobra

Google G Force Cobras west Australia. I have herd their bodies are so good out of the mold that they don't need tainting just polish the gel coat.

Tainting? I dunno. Might be fun to do it anyway. Some parts of the world it's considered illegal though.

Sorry spelling mistake. But G Force is a crown based kit.

Is that based off a North American Crown Victoria and, if so, which generation / years? FWIW, I looked at the G Force site and see no references to use of donor cars, especially a NA Crown Victoria (commonly used as taxis and police cars).
