Sedan Car for sale by Diversion Motors in Manitowoc, Wisconsin 54220
Following in the tradition of previous Ford factory built Mustang race cars like the 1968 Cobra Jet, the Boss 429 and the FR500S Mustang Challenge car, Ford Racing and AAI started work on a production run of 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs in January 2010. Ford Racing built 50 Cobra Jet Mustangs at Ford vendor facilities.
One thing that the crew at Volo Auto Museum understands is that context is everything. They have gone the extra mile to display each movie car with memorabilia and signage that brings the scene to life. The museum features actual movie props such as Tom Cruise's racing seat from Days Of Thunder.

Here is one of my favorite street rod platforms. This 1928 Model A Tudor Sedan combines classic Ford lines with a perfect stance to make a fantastic looking ride. Throw in things like a small block V8, stronger frame, better suspension, disc brakes - now you’ve got a hot rod you can really enjoy.
This frame-off build started with a steel Model A body. The battered fenders were replaced with fiberglass, and the whole car was painted a sleek grey metallic. The car then received a new black vinyl top and some subtle pinstriping. Underneath is a boxed frame along with two saddle fuel tanks. The suspension was redone with a Mustang II setup in front and 4-link in back. There are adjustable coilovers all around, making it easy to dial in the perfect rake. The aluminum wheels with Ford spinner caps look right at home.
The drivetrain uses a Chevy 350ci engine. This is a reliable street motor built with a 3970010 block and 333882 heads; plenty of power for this light car! It is topped by an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and carburetor with electric choke. The ceramic coated headers look gorgeous and blend perfectly with the paint scheme. The transmission is a TH350 automatic with a B&M ratchet shifter, while out back is a Ford 8” rear end. Also note the power front disc brakes and third brake light.
The custom interior is a two-tone grey that is also a nice match for the paint. Everything was done; seats, dash, door panels, headliner, and carpet. Front seat belts were added as well. There is a full set of VDO gauges, a windshield wiper, horn, parking brake, turn signals, and Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo. All windows roll up and down and the tilt-out windshield operates properly. A tilt steering column was installed and rotated for a swing-away action, making it much very easy to get in and out.
As you might expect, this Model A gets a steady stream of waves, honks, and thumbs-up wherever it goes. It is a great looking street rod that is complete and ready to go when you are.
