65' cobra.....the gull wings are way too cool! That is Badd A$$

DB....I didn't know yaw say ain't in england? That's a cool top! Low, lean & mean, just the way I like em'! To bad your not here in the states. Someone else on here offers one that looks similar, that I like. Speaking for myself I don't like the tall perky type.

I searched some and noticed that others had looked for the same thing and I found other brands of cobra sites but don't know for sure how to post them here. If others are looking also, I may be able to save others some time (along with myself) when it comes that time to buy one. View them all at one place with out having to search, I hope more owners post pictures here.

Itís a MidStates hard top. It is not advertised to fit a FFR Roadster but with modification it should work. As you can see itís not done yet. I also had to cut my roll bars down and inch and a half.

Your right DB, I checked out your site and your passed post and found this post on the subject from Nov. 2005. That's a very nice top you have ! $3000 plus shipping from UK is the killer, did anyone try copying it here in the states ?

Cool

I don't know gents. If you wanted a coupe you should have bought a coupe. I think all of them look "perky". I will give credit where credit is due to those individuals who made theirs, and that gull wing concept is pretty darn cool. just my opinion, do what you will thats what this whole kit car thing is all about 'eh.

FastLane,
Nothing wrong with wanting the best of both worlds.
I use my top during the hot rainy summer down here in Florida (with A/C), and enjoy top down running during the rest of the year.
BTW, good choice on the signature line...

Hi Fourbar83
One of may tops has just landed in the States and I believe it is at this moment in time sat in LA waiting to be shipped to a customer in Oregon.
I don't know if this customer intends to copy the top (I hope he does, I don't mind if he does. After all he has spent over $5500 to get it to the States). He does not have a FF (I'm not sure what he does have).
My top was copide from an original 289 top and then modded to fit the Dax.

Another piccie:-

Anybody know where to get this top?



OK, I think I cut and pasted properly... Anyone know who makes this hard top? Where to get it, and how much? It hopefully is the picture of the yellow one with quarter windows and the "relief" in the rear allowing full trunk access. If not, well NUTS, I must have screwed up the whole technology interweb thingy, sorry...

I appreciate any help in the quest!

Regards,

Steve

I think this was a "one-of" made by a guy on the forum a couple years back. I don't think it's a production piece and was made from the inside out from wood, etc. I remember seeing his build thread if I remember correctly. The guy was/is talented.
