1965 Factory Five Racing COBRA replica #1004554RD
5.0 quad-cam Ford Cobra engine, Independent Rear Suspension
Perfect Street and Track driver - Florida title: "1965 FFR"

This is my third FFR Roadster build, completed in 2007. It is an IRS car, with a 5.0 quad-cam modular engine professionally built in 2007. The donor parts used are: 1998 Mustang Cobra T45 transmission, spindles, brakes, steering rack, gas tank, wire harness. I installed a new FFR aluminum radiator, and other upgrades below. Paint is a beautiful Honda Suzuka Blue, by Frank Gifford of Classic Illusions body shop in Stuart, FL. My primary goal in this build has been reliability, simplicity, and good manners in every situation. The car has been 100% reliable for every mile. I’m selling it only to be able to build my next project. If you are looking for a Cobra to DRIVE anywhere on the road or track, with no worries, I have no hesitation in recommending my car to you.

ENGINE: Ford 4.6 liter 4-cam Cobra mod-motor, new Teksid block, stroked to 5.0 with new forged crank, H-beam rods, forged pistons all balanced and pro assembled at Thunder Motorsports Boynton Beach, racing Mustang specialists. All ARP fasteners. 307 rwhp, 310 torq per dyno. This engine is built for reliability, strength, and power. It is smooth and tractable on the street, great for cruising, and has a fantastic snarl from 5,000 rpm to redline of 7,000. Mobil-1 always.
