Ford for your consideration. This cool custom comes in a bright
yellow paint job commented in a black interior with a roll bar.
Powering this beast is a Ford Windsor Crate 5.8 Liter 392 CID

couple of cool things to note on this build are Holley 750 Street
Avenger carb, Mustang 8.8 Rear end, power steering, A/C, Simpson
Racing Restraints, Mickey Thompson tires, and much much more. So if
you are in the market for a turn-key hot rod this is the car for
you! Please call or email us today for more information.
The original FFR Roadster was based on the concept of using running
gear from a single modern donor vehicle, the high-performance
Mustang. The Mustang running gear was chosen for a number of
reasons, but mostly because of high performance relative to cost
and ready availability of parts through dealers. The earlier
Mustang 302 V-8 is exactly the same block that powered the original
vintage AC Cobra and Ford GT-40 to World Championships in the 60's.
Over a million Mustangs were built between 1987 and 2004 and the
performance after-market for these parts is well established.
The donor car path is not the only way to build an FFR Roadster.
The remaining mechanical parts can be purchased new or used from a
variety of sources. The kit has been modified to accommodate a
variety of engine, drive-train, and suspension choices. Over half
of the Factory Five customers today build their kit using
engine/drivetrain parts from a donor Mustang, whereas the remainder
elect to buy all new parts or a combination thereof.2 #fn2 Jim
Youngs, the founder and editor of Kit Car Builder, says the Factory
Five Cobra is the country's bestselling kit car.
During 2010 the Mark IV version of the Roadster was released, 15
years after the Mark I was born.
