    Those are my boys in picture that will help me build every bit of car. I purchased a brand new BBM block and heads (427 type) but will end up being a 482 with about 550 horsepower when done. I have a 2-4 barrel set up, (blue thunder) and a top loader all parts in storage in colorado except kit which I stored on east coast. Bought smiths gauges and other little items to make it look original. This is my third cobra and I usually run them hard and a lot, last one I sold before moving to Italy and it had 54,000 miles on it. The next eleven months we have left in Italy will give me time to get the few items I need to build. Ordered car with powder coated frame, ff5 lower control arms, rectangular tail lights,center support under dash, 15 inch wheels, and 4 link rear. 4 link because I realized after my last cobra I like launches more than corners so independent rear wasn't necessary.

    Finally back in states in Owings Maryland. Car is in my garage but waiting on storage from Colorado for engine and trans. Has anyone used a 4 speed toploader with a 427 in one of these and if so what problems did you encounter? Also put front a arms on and was going to put brackets on spindles, do bolts come in kit to attach or are the bolts from donor struts?
