93 Cobra Replica Build!

Well a while back my brother picked up an '89 GT with complete Cobra Body and fresh paint. It's a complete roller with hardly anything. Throught the months we have aquired quite the assortment of parts and have I have begun to build the car recently. This will be a work in progress but I will post pictures and updates as the build goes on. This should take plenty of time, no rush here!

Link to parts needed thread: Parts NEEDED!



Before the start:



After the rear end was installed: *still need to do 5-lug conversion with 3.55s/3.73s


K-member install:





Planned 306 Roller: have upper and lower Cobra intakes plan on having extrude honed along with heads...anyone know someone who can do this for me?



T5 Transmission/Bellhousing, Brake Booster, Master Cylinder, Radiator

Re: 93 Cobra Replica Build!

So, just got the complete body harness and all electrical items I need.(Great Dane chewed through the other one in probably 10 different places) Arrived at the house.... YAY. I'm going to swap the harness soon and go pick up the axles for the 5 lug swap this weekend.

Re: 93 Cobra Replica Build!

Nice project looking good so far. I just bought an 88 GT/Cobra Clone. Good luck and we will look forward to your finished project.

Here is my 88 Cobra Clone I just bought a few weeks ago. It has most of the Cobra parts swaped on it and I have more to add to it also as I get the time. I was out of the Mustang world for a few years and always wanted a 93 Cobra style just didnt want to pay what they were going for. My wife thinks this is my mid life crisis.

Re: 93 Cobra Replica Build!

I'll answer my own question to Al, yes it is, lol. I really shouldn't post until I'm fully awake and can actually look at the front of the damn car.

Re: 93 Cobra Replica Build!

Thank You
I am one of the weird people that cant stand dirty cars and mess under the hood so that is what sold me on this car to be honest. they guy I got it from was just like me with his cars and i was willing to pay a little more or that.
I am more into the show and willnever race anyways getting to old for that pus I have my 08 Corvette Z06 Callaway for that if needed.
