Ford Manufactured Cobra 4 Valve Engine with Fuel Injection and Factory Wiring with Diagnostics Capabilities

The owner was looking to build a Shelby Cobra that the engine and drive train would have easy operation starting and running characteristic, and the high amount of horse power that can be associated with a newer style fuel injected 4 valve engine. It would be very driver friendly, and have good low end torque, easy drive-ability, reliable, and could be easily diagnosed should any problems occur.
Factory Five Mark IV purchased new. Engine and transmission carefully selected from a local well know supplier.
After the complete build the vehicle was properly inspected, and issued a V.I.N number by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, and it is titled 2014.

Paint-

* The paint was performed just prior to the completion in 2014.

* We are not able to find any nicks or scratches anywhere on the body.

* It is extremely smooth and polished with a beautiful finish that is matching all the way around.

* We are not able to detect any blemishes or imperfections, and we know that it was professionally applied and done. Even when you look closely at the black finish up close it is almost mirror like.

* Just forward of the windshields lower molding the rubber has maybe caused a touch of abrasion on the paint that may or may not polish out. (See pic)

Body-

* The body is very straight and correct, look closely at the pictures we have taken at an angle.

* The fits of the trunk, hood, and doors, all have very appropriate gaps.(See pics)

Bright Work-

* All of the bright work regardless of its material all shows as new in condition, and have very high quality bright shine on the highly polished parts but all other materials otherwise do in fact still appear as they did new.

* The only exception being there are a few very light scratches on the upper right hand corner of the windshield frame. (See pics)

Glass-

* The windshield does have a “laminated” designation and appears to be tinted, and it is in brand new condition.

*We do not see any nicks or wear, and that is also true of the side vents.

* The top shades are of a non glass material but show no signs of wear or damage of any type.

Tonneau Cover-

* The tonneau cover was custom made with a durable vinyl material with striping and coloring to best match the colors of the car itself, and are held in place primarily by side straps that will wrap around the exhaust system.

Test Drive-

Chad drove the vehicle for several miles around a park setting and on a 2 lane road. The car steers easily and smoothly, and is nice and quick at responding well. The engine fires up immediately and runs up around 1000 and when warms up goes down to a normal idle, and certainly has all the nice running benefits of a modern fuel injected engine. The car accelerates and decelerates very smoothly. The clutch operation seems to work smoothly, and the brakes stop easily, and upon braking there is no pulling to the left or right, and without any pulsation. Easily shifts in and out of all 5 gears, and in reverse. The car drives very smoothly and has a good solid feel.
