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.
Classic Car Overview
We received this outstanding highboy from the original builder recently and it was truly a labor of love. What really grabs the eye here is the very clean workmanship and attention to detail. Practically everything shy of the upholstery and paint is a product of his expert craftsmanship. He started working on this in 1983, and over a period of nine years, patiently built it step by step to his exacting standards.
Starting with an A. I. fiberglass body and a set of original deuce rails, he then narrowed the Gennie frame two inches, and notched the bottom of the body to clean it up a little and make it sit down on the ’32 frame better. The body was further updated by fabricating a rolled rear pan and chopping the windshield posts four inches, the detailing them for a clean fit to the body.
Under a custom Steve Hardin three-piece aluminium hood rests a very reliable 4-bolt 350, that is now a 355. The .030 overbore, HEI ignition, and four-barrel Holly 600 atop an Edelbrock Performer ensure trouble-free cruising. The front end is based around a four-inch dropped Super Bell axle that rides on Posies spring and four-bar system. The rear axle is a Ford eight-inch unit riding on a pair of Alden coil-over shocks, using 170 pound springs, with a Pete and Jake ladder bar system. The front brakes are JFZ discs. The hefty five-spoke 10-inch wide rear wheels are from American Racing. The matching front wheels are four inches wide. Tires are in great condition.
A Boyd dash insert plays an integral part of the interior, which includes VDO cockpit gauges, a three-spoke Lecarra steering wheel, and a custom stitched and very comfortable bench seat with plenty of leg room.
With over 25 trophies (including several Best of Show) this is a beautiful highboy that has been driven about 1500 miles per year, showing 12,00 highly maintained miles. It’s in pristine condition and needs nothing.
