This is my first post on this forum, which I joined as Shelby Team member some weeks a go.
I'm a Cobra replica builder and hope to see more information about the Cobra on this forum.
I drive a 1996 Mustang GT on weekdays and my Cobra hopefully will be finished about summer 2010.... :headspin:

The Cobra is powered by a brand new 1998 Mustang 4,6L 32V DOHC Cobra engine with a Centerforce HP Clutch and a T-45 5-speed manually gearbox and a Mustang 8,8 rear axel with 31 splined shafts hanging in a 4 link with coilowers. In front there is a Art Morrison IFS arrangement (Mustang II style) also with coilowers. Brakes will be Willwood 6 caliper on 14" rotors in fron an 4 caliper on 13" rotors in back.... and YES it's propably overkill of the year on a 1050 KG (2200 pound) car, but it might help me to some nice prices at carshows.

The engine will be force feed by a Vortech V-2 blower i'v been using on my Grand Cherokee 5,2L with exellent result.

Well that's it for now. Please send me a message if U have any Q. or comments.

Welcome to this board! I've been to Stockholm a couple of years ago and although my stay was brief, I found it to be a very nice city. Of all places, it is also there that I saw a Ford GT "live" for the first time. It had the heritage color combo (powder blue and orange). Maybe you've seen it as I guess there must be very few of them driving around in Sweden.

Hi Shelby Micke,

I have owned my GT500 - 2007 since April last year. I have exercised my car a few times around the Stockholm area. However, I live in Dalarna but is working in Stockholm during the weekdays. Now I'm just waiting for the spring to come so I don't have to take the train to Stockholm. :shift:

Hi All
An other Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Conv, coming to småland, Sweden.
Vista Blue with all options.


History:
After several years of looking and searching for the right opportunity I finally found it.
At a Ford Dealer in La Grange in Texas, there it was.

It had what I had been looking for, it was not Brand new as I planned from the beginning, but it had all other advantages including a good titel (very important in order to have a simpler procees of import and registration).

I Purchased the car in January.
I ordered all upgrading parts needed for the SUPER SNAKE conversion.
I went to La Grange in end March, was in the Dealers garage during the upgrading, working with the people, and learning a lot of things.
Beginning April it was loaded on a truck, bringing the car to west coats as a friend will take car of the shipping and registration and importation issues.
This week it will be loaded on the ship so end June I hope it is ready on the road in Sweden.

I have found may new friends along the road in this process.

I am waiting for the car every day now....

I will update you more later.
Brgds
Lennart
I love performance driving and Mustang GT500
