  1. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Good morning San Diego! It looks like the Coupe will once again go into storage. The Navy is sending me to Japan for three years, and they most definitely do not appreciate loud, fast, V8, left hand drive cars on the other side of the big pond. Unfortunately, this means that I will have to put...
  2. Parts For Sale / Wanted
    I will be doing undercar exhaust, so I won't be needing my headers or exhaust (along with the brackets and other parts for them). I do need the header bolts and gaskets though, so those will have to be found somewhere else. FFR has the exhaust pipes for $389, so $150 plus shipping would be...
  3. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Good evening everyone! I am working on putting all of the accessories onto my Coyote coupe, and it looks like the Coyote AC compressor in its current configuration will not clear the Mike Forte headers I have (BBK Headers installed backwards). I contemplated installing a spacer under the...
  4. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Well my first post for this thread, but its authentic.. :) I needed to make room under the house to extend the existing garage. Lucky I have some engineering and building experience, although the diggers are going to cost no matter what.. :)
  5. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    I have noticed a number of brackets, dash end plates and interior parts that could be made with ABS plastic. ABS is fluid at around 225C, so there are limits to its application close to high temp sources in the engine bay, transmission and brakes (but I was going to try ABS sensor brackets and...
  6. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Am in the midst of sorting out compliance and conversion issues for a Coupe 65 to be eventually registered in Australia. While its not genuine, is there anyone with experience / templates for engine mounts to suit an GM LS series motor coupled with a TKO box..? Cheers Chris
  7. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    I had a lull in my Coupe build waiting on components that seemed to be on the critical path. However I wasn't sure that was true. Then it occurred to me that i had broken the cardinal rule of any project. I had begun without a real project plan. I had a manual in my hand, a scope with a rough...
  8. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    I came across this article today, it's from June last year, but and wanted to share it anyway. There's a great picture of CSX2299 on page 2. I think someone was looking for the font used on the meatball number? Bob Bondurant - Interview and Profile
  9. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    I was looking for more flow from my Coupe after hitting the dyno in the fall. We made around 280-290 whp with the stock coupe pipes and when we pulled them off and made some pulls it dynoed around 350 to the wheels. I needed some work done to the car so I sent it off to Mark Dougherty's Shop in...

    Alright coupe guys i want to know how many miles you have on your car. And does anybody know who owns the highest mileage coupe? Just looking to get a rough idea.
  11. Audio / Electronics
    Hey guys I just picked up a GoPro 3 and I am psyched to use it on the coupe. I love having the ability to be able to turn it on and off through my phone. I have some great video ideas for the track and AutoX. The only thing that is lacking is the mic it sounds muffled and choppy. I have seen...
  12. New Member Introductions
    Greetings all - I have been lurking on this forum for a while, and since Dave has this great sale going on, I will finally push the Order button on a new Complete Kit before the end of this month. I am still doing research to figure out how to configure my build, but need to accelerate this...
  13. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    I went from Philadelphia PA to Sandpoint Idaho via London ohio for the Cobra show. Prior to the trip I had almost everything set for the A/C system to be running. Of course I happened to be leaving just as the massive heat wave hit the east coast. So it was a little over 100 degrees with crazy...
  14. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Well the car just completed a 2700 mile journey from East to West. No major problems, a faulty fuel pump and some minor water leaking during rain. During the last 50 miles of the trip I thought I was having some clutch slip. Today I went out and played with it. Turned out to simply be a badly...
  15. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Finally finished her after two years. A HUGE thanks to Mark Dougherty and his son Matthew for all the build help. I highly recommend the Traveling Builder. A few little things to do here and there still. But as near as makes no difference finished and its ready to be driven. :001_tt1:

    Great weekend of working with Mark and Matthew Dougherty. It's almost there just a few more small things[/IMG]
  17. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    Hey guys so I am just now getting to the point where I need to start the registration/inspection process. I've spoken with a few roadster owners in the area regarding it and it sounds pretty difficult. I'm wondering If any coupe owners in the Philadelphia area or anywhere in Pennsylvania for...

    Russ Aruda up at Dartmouth collision did a great job for a great price! almost ready to go back on the chassis. The frontal picture is prior to stripes, painted like the old ffr champ car before its unfortunate end

  20. FFR Type 65 Coupe
    It's been a good long while since I've been on this forum and a couple years now since we 'finished' my Coupe build. Last year, I was busy jumping headfirst into formula car racing in the SCCA. With my weekends spent there, my Coupe only saw rare trips out of the garage. So this summer I've...
