Built by renowned engineer and motorsports expert Dan Fodge in Rancho Cordova. CA. This award wining replica is the appropriate international American racing colors. blue and white. It is true to all original Cobra specifications with the exception of specific items where safety and performance were priorities. It is well known that ERA Cobras are in demand over other replica brands because of their exceptional quality. You can see this exceptional Cobra at www. eracobraforsale. com- Engine is a bored and stroked to 6. 0 L heavy duty 351 Ford Racing/SVO Windsor block with 4-Bolt Mains and every other part being completely special purpose-built for high performance and durability. It has a Steel Billet crankshaft and all of the pistons. rods. camshaft. lifters. push-rods. valves. aluminum heads. etc. . etc. . are all the best available. It has the latest Holly Racing carburetor that is basically a special "racing" version of their 750cfm but with enhanced performance and airflow. The complete ignition system is top notch with all Mallory & MSD parts. The investment in this engine/transmission alone is around $25. 00. Horsepower is approximately 500hp. Equipped with a remote oil filter as well as an appropriate oil cooler. The engine is equipped with a 450-Shot Sportsman Fogger Nitrous system (wet system. port injection) that was installed just for the WOW factor and has never been used while driving. only to tune the system. By using smaller jets in the injectors for the Nitrous system the current available Horsepower is limited to only an additional 150 but if anybody is crazy enough to drive a 2200lb car with 950hp. then this can be easily done. The car will take it. All of the critical hoses and even some not so critical are aircraft quality stainless-steel braided hose. with Earl’s fittings. not just look-alikes. Headers and side-pipes are Jet Hot coated inside and out. ENGINE SPECS: 351 HD Ford Racing/SVO Windsor block w/4-bolt mains. bored & stroked to 6. 0L. Line bored. balanced/blueprinted.

Complete professional installation that has been de-tuned by using smaller jets at each port to provide only 150hp increase. The larger jets (included) along with proper adjustment of the fuel regulator will allow for as much as a 450hp increase over the normally aspirated induction. All documentation is included. The system has only been run once in the shop. not on the road. to do the initial tune. - In the spirit of using better parts where performance is concerned. the car is equipped with a Tremec 5-speed transmission (with a modified original shifter) which is infinitely better than the old Ford Toploader that Shelby used. Fifth gear is a . 80 overdrive which keeps RPMs low on the highways which provides remarkably good gas mileage. In addition to front mounted original replacement cooling fans. the correctly slanted radiator (unlike many other replicas) has a 16" radiator-mounted pull-through fan that further improves cooling. The top of the line Optima RedTop Gel-Cell battery is mounted on the shelf in the trunk on the passenger side for better balance. - Frame. Body (exact replica in fiberglass) and Suspension are from ERA. the best reproduction parts provider. period. I have personally met and spoken frequently to Peter. the president of the company. and they have been the best at answering any questions and providing any help required. Other parts are from Cobra Restorers. nbsp;and are exact replacements for the original car. The chrome oval front grill piece is removable if desired. The ERA frame is noted for being much stiffer than other replica Cobras. The as-original aluminum hood scoop is not molded into the hood but properly mounted. not with pop-rivets. The car was assembled properly by a professional racing engineer & motorsports expert. - The suspension is comprised of dual A-Frames in the front with Alden Aluminum chromed coil-over shocks and a substantial anti-sway bar. The rear is equipped with two Alden Aluminum chromed coil-over shocks at each wheel and has a full independent suspension with special super-duty half-shafts. sway bar and inboard rear brakes. The Center Section of the rear end is a Salisbury posi-traction unit as original. but equipped with Richmond Gears for strength and durability. The trailing arms and hub mounts are custom made. Wheels are 6-Pin-drive with original real knock-off hubs. The car weighs 2200 lbs. and with this suspension system and the lighter engine it handles much better than an original Cobra. - Front brakes were replaced after the initial build with 4-piston Sierra calipers and 13" discs. The same that many race cars use. In order to accommodate the much larger brakes. the original wheels were replaced with exact copies but manufactured as a true 17" wheel to both accommodate the larger brakes AND to take advantage of more modern tires to both improve safety and performance. Front tires are 275/45-17s and the rears are 315/35-17s. This combination provides the same tire diameter front and rear but provides a much wider tire at the rear to improve acceleration traction. Rear tires are 13" wide where the fronts are 10". This car rides and handles exceptionally well. - Even little things like the Headlights; lead crystal lenses with high intensity halogen bulbs! The steering wheel is an original item with the Shelby touch of one/half the number of rivets holding the real wood to the aluminum wheel. Seats are real leather. The driver’s seat. which is mounted on adjustable rails at first glance appears to be original. is custom made with extra bolsters to provide more comfort. back support and help hold the driver in place along with the 5-point Simpson harnesses. It has all of the hardware to accommodate an original soft top & side curtains and already has the appropriate tonneau cover. Original driver’s seat is included. Custom fitted full car cover included. - Overall investment in the car to date is $105. 00. The original build was $95K and over the years there have been upgrades. Will accept reasonable offers that still reflect/recognize the quality of this car as compared to other replicas. - Credentials: Won 9 trophies for Best-in-Class at regional car shows and 2 Overall Peoples’ Choice awards at two major shows. Also won First runner-up twice in the Sports Car division (350 cars) at one of the nation’s top car shows. Hot August Nights in Reno. - The most frequent question I get asked. after this car has been viewed by 1. 00s of people. is an enthusiastic: "Is this a REAL Cobra?". I always feel bad when I have to disappoint them and tell them it is a replica. Park this car next to any available replica and it is clear why folks think it is a "REAL Cobra".
