Built in 2017 from a full mkiv factory five kit with many options, this cobra is licensed as a 1965 historic vehicle. (no emissions, cheap to insure). Powered by a 351 winsor custom built by phoenix engines. The 408hp coupled with a 5 speed tremec 500 and a high performance moser rear provides incredible acceleration. The tremec 500 has a low first gear and a high 5th gear, so it is stink fast and cruise well. The cooling system has been seriously upgraded with a pwm fan, shroud and thermostatically controlled oil cooler so this cobra keeps it's cool evne on the hotest arizona days. Paint is, imo, pretty good, but i did it myself and it is not a professional paint job and has some orange peel. i am a retired senior principal engineer and took a full year to build this car. No compromises on hardware, parts, or assembly. Gauges are historically correct, including reverse reading speedometer, but are actual high tech gps gauges. Car has always been garaged. handling is perfect and performance is breathtaking. Upgraded wheels, tires, electric fuel pump, gauges, battery, cooling and chrome exhaust heat shield. Chrome side exhausts provide stereo. Only one channel, but damn does it sound good. Forward shift kit makes shifting fast and fun. This car is easy to drive, fast, loud, and, did i mention, fast. One year old and licensed as an historic vehicle is the best of both worlds, a new car that is cheap to insure and registers.
