For the full build visit
I have tons of videos detailing the process there as well.
I have a complete spreadsheet for every part, where to get it, and how much it cost.
Everything is well documented.
Maintenance is just basic 1997 Cobra stuff, nothing crazy. I run 7 quarts of 10W30 in the summer (Texas) and 5W30 in winter. Always motorcraft filters.

VIN: 1FALP47V9VF117538
Humble, TX
$21K obo

This is a 1997 SVT Cobra. Crystal white color change to Avalanche Grey from top to bottom. The entire interior is coated in POR15 so it'll never rust. Chassis flex is virtually eliminated in this car. full restomod at about 104K miles. Nothing was left untouched.

Summary: Built slightly higher compression teksid block 99 cobra motor sending power through an aluminum driveshaft to its built 99 cobra rear in a SN95 chassis with full length through the floor sub-frame connectors. 4.10 gears, full bolt-ons and tune making about 400hp putting down 330 at the wheels (dyno tuned by Robert at High Performance Connection). Almost everything is new, rebuilt, or reconditioned. Super quiet at idle and sounds amazing at wide open throttle.

This is not a half built project car. It is fast, responsive, and solid. with OEM reliability from countless hours of design and testing.
The suspension is adjustable so it can go from super comfy to hardcore track with the turn of a knob on each dampener.

I could spend hours going over what I've done to create this. You may not dig it but everything is done right.

Test drives are fine but no tire kickers.
