2017 ffr mkiv

Hey all, I have the itch to build another Roadster, so sadly I think it’s time to sell mine to fund the next project. I never did a build thread because I was too busy following all the other build threads! This community is awesome and I want to just keep building and building! Figured I’d post here before I moved on to bring a trailer or used any of the local resources.

Purchased as a complete kit, delivered in June 2015. Goal was to build a “street car” as it would have left the showroom in 1965, plus the little bits that I considered essential or appropriate to achieve the “Cobra” look. Hood was NOT cut for a hood scoop, but scoop has been painted to match car and can be added at any time. Over $50k invested, all new parts except the bare 1968 302 block, and the parking brake handle (94 mustang). Manual steering and brakes with professional alignment. Completed in July 2017, 800miles on the odometer. Many custom touches, but I’ll list some of the major items below:

347 stroker with aluminum heads and custom cam made over 450hp on engine dyno. Recently replaced pistons with forged units and bumped compression a bit higher, runs great. FITECH fuel injection. Smog exempt in NJ.

Levy Racing Super Alloy T5

Forte’s 8.8 with 3.55 gears, Cobra limited slip, Cobra brakes

FFR 17” wheels with Nitto NT-05 rubber

Hydraulic Clutch

Russ’s Turn signal

Custom dash with Alex’s Glovebox and vinyl

Under dash panel with faux dash supports, USB ports, “cigarette lighter” style port, LED lighting

Heated seats, insulated cockpit

Wipers, wind wings, visors, front and rear stainless bumpers and over riders

Many breeze parts - solid radiator hoses, radiator aluminum, radiator shroud, etc

Underfloor battery in trunk

Mechanical Throttle

Upgraded coolant reservoir

Custom headers and undercar exhaust

Painted Ford Ivy Green by Ron Randall (Metal Morphus) in CT, Fall 2016

Car is tip top and everything works as it should. I removed the rollbar and side exhaust and installed a custom undercar exhaust. I have not brought it back to Ron to have the holes filled where the rollbar and side pipes passed through the body. Ron saved extra paint to do this repair after the car was registered, I just have not brought it up there. He quoted $1500 for the work plus a final “cut and buff” and any other touch ups from rock chips or build “dings”. Willing to swap out exhaust and re-install side pipes and roll bar if “street car” look isnt your thing, or offer price reduction for paint work requirements.

Looking to get $45k or OBO. PM me, email or text with any questions. I have hundreds of pics from the build and would be more than happy to share them and answer any questions you may have.

Thanks- Kevin

Hi Kevin,

The rubber seal that you have around the hood opening, is that a molded piece or just a generic strip of rubber? It seems to form really well on the curves. I would like to do that with my car as well.

Good luck with the sale, I am sure it wont take long, as it is a beautiful color and build.

Cheers,

Nigel in South Oz

Nigel-

Thanks for the kind words - I’m flexible on price, would love to see this car go to a great home to be enjoyed and to build another car myself!

That seal came from Mike over at replicaparts. I used it around the hood opening, as well as the doors and trunk. It was easy to install and has a “factory” look and feel to it. The specs and price are posted on his website. Just one of the countless details that makes these cars look absolutely perfect!

-Kevin
