Hey Gang,
I just picked up a 'Barn-find' and I'm in the process of figuring out just what I've got:
Previous owner thinks it's a Classic Cobra Roadster CCR?
It has a Ford 390 motor with block casting # C4AE
Edlebrock 390 performer intake and 4 barrel carb
Hurst 4-speed Top-loader trans
8.8 rear end with drum brakes
disc brakes in the front
9x17 American Racing rims in the rear
8x17 American Racing rims in the front
Motor and tranny are installed -**NO FLUIDS** never fired
Distributor is installed (*no cap), water pump and alternator are on, but not adjusted.
There is an aftermarket wiring harness, but no MFG label for me to cross-reference for final wiring termination,
Brake lines are run - no master cylinder
**No clutch, brake or gas peddle assembly - **need recommendations on that one!

I'll update this list as I get a chance to really look at this thing LOL!
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated - :grin2:

Photos would be a great help.

Also, you can post to the Off Topic forum here and someone will probably help (if you have pictures).

Yes..photos are a must to start. There are plenty of guys on this site that know much more than simply Factory Five, and my experience has been that they are extremely generous with their time and knowledge. This sounds like an interesting puzzle, can't wait to see them!

Any number of replica manufactures could have made it. The info you provided and with no pictures, leaves little evidence to go by, as to what it is.

Update:

Made a great contact for a link to the assembly manual for a Classic Cobra Roadster (CCR) and a quick search though the pages strongly points to a CCR kit - I'm having issues with posting pics -

Great - 'kit car identification' challenged, as well as 'picture posting' challenged - I can't win for losing LOL! What URL do you guys use to post pics??
