Default Original Style Front & Rear Uprights

I'm looking for Front & Rear Uprights for a 427 Cobra project. I would like to get the original pattern Front & Rear Uprights as well as Suspension Arms. Who supplies these now?What would the approximate cost be for 4 corners?

I think the 4 corners with original type brakes will cost at least...…………… half as much as a complete Factory Five Racing mark IV kit. Now throw in an original type rear end and half shafts and you will be at about the same cost as the complete kit.

Mine are for a leaf spring car, so I don't know how that compares to 427 but cost for the front uprights, spindles and hubs was about $4000. That doesn't include calipers, rotors, A-arms or ball joints.
I haven't purchased the rear yet but I'm about to.

TJD... Great looking stuff! Based off original drawings? Did you use standard or dropped spindles in the front?

Great alternative option!!

You’re comparing apples to oranges there’s no question that for the bang for the buck you cannot beat a factory five if you want to build a cobra for around 20K
factory five is the way to go but if you want something as close to the original as possible
Look at the red car that was just completed by cobrakiwi
I’ve been involved with the cobra replica business since 1980 and I’ve seen just about everything from a piece of crap with a $20,000 paint job to well built and safe really nice car that a guy painted in his Garage.
It all depends on what you want to spend and what you can afford to spend to be happy
I do not think I offended anybody what I just said and if I did I apologize my personal opinion and not trying to kiss anybody’s ass.
All the parts that I make are interchangeable with a original CSX car
Kirkam makes jewelry and very expensive. ERA makes a excellent car.
I dictate to my iPhone so if anything seems off it’s the phones fault
