Wow, that car is beautiful. My uncle just bought a wicked early model porsche, I forget which year, and he just got invited to fly his car to California for a car show. That is one sweet car.

My fav...........:eek: The originals had a 427CI 4bbl and are worth a mint since not many were produced. I suppose that one has some sort of 5.4L turbo charged 4V if your dad kept it Ford enhanced. Kudo's - ;)

No Drago. This isnt from Ford it is a Factory Five Racing kit. Almost Completly custom.

Yes, I realize it's a kit car. I was merely speaking of Ford's newer engines as possibly being in your dad's new ride - ;)

Ahh. Like I said I am not up on current car knowledge, but no it is not a ford engine. It is a custom built engine. I think I have some pics of it. Let me see.

EDIT:
Here you go.

Looks like a Ford engine to me. Looks like a 302cid w/Edelbrock dual plain intake and Holley 4bbl double pumper(not the newer EFI engine I was thinking it was). I built and installed basically the same engine in a Bronco I used to have. Cost me about $3000 to have it machined, and all the parts so I could build it including roller rockers and full length ceramic headers. To buy one already built might cost a bit more. More niceness there bud - ;)

That is one sweet looking ride. The Cobra has always been one of my favorite muscle cars.
