What car is this?,

So my buddy is down in Ocean City Maryland now and gonna be there for the weekend for a large car show. So yesterday my buddy pulls into the Hooters parking lot and he sees a car that he recognizes its a mustang but never seen this thing in person. As he got up too it he realises its a mustang cobra jet or so that's what it says.

My buddy is a GM guy so he doesn't not about mustangs much less a cobra jet. My buddy snaps me a bunch of pictures of this cobra jet and too his knowledge, its thevresl deal. Now, I'm far from being an expert on a cobra jet and in fact don't know much about them other than there pretty quick and thought they were turbo charged. According to my buddy he saw no super or turbo charges on the engine. I was also under the impression the Cobra jet was made by Ford racing which becomes important when I show you these pictures.

After seeing these pictures of this alleged cobra jet something doesn't seem right here and think its a fake. Wait till you see the air filter in this thing.

I believe the cobra jet is a track only car. I don't think that is one though

And I don't think that is even the right body style for a cobra jet

Not a real one, just has the snake sticker on the side.

Cobrajet doesn't have the Shelby name and badging on it.

The Cobrajet also has a 5.8 supercharged engine or N/A - there is a one off twin turbo that Ford Racing has been playing with. That car has been built with what appears to be an older 429 engine with carburetor.

It's likely a junkyard contraption, I couldn't see someone doing that to a perfectly fine Shelby or GT.

It looks like one of those cars that has wheelie bars, slicks and skinnies and runs 12's.

This is a Cobra Jet

Twin Turbo 1,000 horspower drag race Mustang by "FORD RACING"



I took this picture at the S.E.M.A. show in Las Vegas in 2012. I don't think there was a snake on the grill. All I know for a fact is that it is a drag race car and Foed Racing did not intend it to be ever used on the street.

Yes, It is a Ford Racing product.

The fake one still looks great to me.
The owner of that car did a nice job as a tribute car.

The real deal here.

The Fuzzy Dice should have tipped you off... its a junkyard, salvaged-title, deathtrap-contraption fake!!

And I'd bet under that shiny sheet metal in the engine compartment is some frankenstein welds where they repaired this car from a totalled head on collision.

Real Cobra Jets have no VIN, can't be registered for street use.

we all want differant things from our cars. Unless the owner is saying it's a ________ let them do what they want.

I have mixed feelings about putting Shelby/Cobra stickers on one that ain't real but if thats what the owner wants to do it's up to them. I sure as heck ain't gonna Hate on them for it. There are enough people out there that have earned hate I ain't gonna waste it one minor offenders.

The car is obviously a pro street drag car, probably does not care if it's emblem correct

I'd only drive it on 2 wheels haha. But to own one i'd have to sell my soul to the devil, take a 30 year loan, and probably have to live in the box it came in

Well that may be something new but in general a SHELBY cobra jet isn't a mustang. There are SHELBY mustangs and cobra mustangs and I guess now a mustang cobra jet. But it's not the same.

I don't believe it, there's actually a 65 impala at the show and its blown! I've only seen one other 65 impala at a car show besides mine...
You know got to represent the highest produced American car for one model year...

the Mustang Cobra Jet is a factory race/drag car from Ford Racing; it's not Shelby at all.
The MCJ is Ford Racing parts (but I don't think street legal);
But you could build your own CJ if you wanted to.

Correct, no VIN, and cannot get one, illegal on the street for that reason and a few others.
