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
1949 Ford Custom. Originally was a a coupe that has been modified to be a convertible with a chopped front windshield. I have had the car for 9 years and just cannot do everything I want to on the car (typical story...too many projects!). When I bought the car it had a cosmetic restoration. I have focused on mechanical and suspension. The pictures make the paint look great, but there are a few blemishes. I bought this to cruise...not show. It has the original flathead V8 (239 cu in). Most of it is original, including the vacuum fuel pump (so she takes a bit to get started, can be fixed with an electrical fuel pump). Has a three on the tree for shifting. Needs work to make it more reliable...it is a 71 year old car!! The ramps shown in one of the pictures can be bought as well for $1200...pretty much the only way to work under the car if you do not have a post lift. Car comes with a carson top..shown in one of the photos.
