For the full build visit https://www.thedouglasjones.com/cobra-restomod/
I have tons of videos detailing the process there as well.
I have a complete spreadsheet for every part, where to get it, and how much it cost.
Everything is well documented.
Maintenance is just basic 1997 Cobra stuff, nothing crazy. I run 7 quarts of 10W30 in the summer (Texas) and 5W30 in winter. Always motorcraft filters.

VIN: 1FALP47V9VF117538
Humble, TX
$21K obo

This is a 1997 SVT Cobra. Crystal white color change to Avalanche Grey from top to bottom. The entire interior is coated in POR15 so it'll never rust. Chassis flex is virtually eliminated in this car. full restomod at about 104K miles. Nothing was left untouched.

Summary: Built slightly higher compression teksid block 99 cobra motor sending power through an aluminum driveshaft to its built 99 cobra rear in a SN95 chassis with full length through the floor sub-frame connectors. 4.10 gears, full bolt-ons and tune making about 400hp putting down 330 at the wheels (dyno tuned by Robert at High Performance Connection). Almost everything is new, rebuilt, or reconditioned. Super quiet at idle and sounds amazing at wide open throttle.

This is not a half built project car. It is fast, responsive, and solid. with OEM reliability from countless hours of design and testing.
The suspension is adjustable so it can go from super comfy to hardcore track with the turn of a knob on each dampener.

I could spend hours going over what I've done to create this. You may not dig it but everything is done right.

Test drives are fine but no tire kickers.

Makoto,
Fantastic car! Why are you selling it? For another Mustang? Or will you be leaving us? Hope not; your input is quite valuable!

1. @J_lope82 its a MM strut tower brace for a 99 cobra modified so it can clear the massive JLT intake
2. @badass98svt it has camber plates built into the coilover hats. castor is perfectly symetrical
3. @Roushguy1 check my youtube channel, I don't have anything actually driving posted yet because my knock off gopro camera sucks. I can throw something up later if you're serious, though.
4. @Daryl i realized I want something with a backseat so i can share this with my family. looking at a new GT. less time wrenching perfecting this one and more time cruising something ready built. I fixed all the issues with the sn95 chassis and ended up building a race car in a tuxedo :D

Nice build. I can understand the time you have vested. Friend of mine is looking, but he's not into the internet so he asked me to forward a few questions. 1. Am assuming the A/C is complete and blowing cold. 2. He noticed at the beginning of the dyno run the temperature gage heading to the warm side. I told him you probably laid down back to back dyno pulls. Regardless any issues with temperature while sitting in traffic with A/C on? I believe he's planning on using it as a daily car.

1. ac is perfect, new compressor, mostly new lines, updated for modern freon
2. the temp gauges on cobras show warm at normal operating temp. needle at 'AL' means around 200 degrees.
3. no issues with overheating at all

the gauges in all these cars suck from the factory. thats why i ordered new ones. if he buys it before i cancel my dakota digital order he can have my place in line.

I'll pm you my number so he can call.

cobra bumper doesn't flow without sideskirts.
If you say so.

I was asking about the bumper and hood because I assume you would have more bites if they were on the car. Is the original bumper still available? The OEM hood was never on the car when you bought it?
