Jim's Factory Five Cobra

JJ F5 CobraPosted by Don Dillard Tue, January 08, 2013 16:26:52

We got another stalled project in the shop to finish. Jim's Cobra kit has been in the local high school's auto shop since 2007. He just had the body painted recently so, it's time to get it done. The Factory Five kit is usually designed to use a Fox body Mustang as a donor car. This one has a few departures from that plan. It already has a 427 side oiler, a toploader 4-speed and a nine inch rear installed. Along with Wilwood pedals and master cylinders. Most of the kit's tin has already been riveted in and the steering is hooked up. That's about it, the rest will be up to us.
