The engine is a Ford 429 cid with 460 heads and a mild cam. It starts easily and has A LOT of horsepower and torque. This is a powerful, good running and driving car. The brakes (9”discs in front, drums in back), while adequate, could use an upgrade with the addition of a power assist and bigger rotors and calipers. The front suspension is from a Mustang II with a rack and pinion steering. It has a Ford C6 automatic transmission. The rear end is a Ford with adjustable coil over shocks. The kit was manufactured by Shell Valley and parts are still available. The car is registered as a 1992 Cobra. Please make sure that the car can be legally registered in your state BEFORE bidding. It has a convertible soft top and side curtains. The car runs very well and is VERY fast. The brakes could use an upgrade.
