What's the story?

   This car was purchased back in 2005 as a daily driver, bone stock GT. Clearly that wouldn't last! The clutch went out, and instead of just replacing the clutch, we decided a full engine rebuild was in order! We started with a Aluminum Cobra Block, bored .020 over, with a stock cobra forged crank, forged rods and forged pistons setup for a mid level compression ratio which could work well with a small supercharger, 6-8 psi of boost. Although there is no supercharger now, the engine is built to withstand the power levels, and also has TrickFlow SOHC Aluminum heads and Track Max camshafts. The intake is a TFS bullit style intake, along with the Accufab TB and C&L mass air setup. The exhaust is full Bassani with ceramic headers and polished tail pipes. The interior is all original black leather with the Mach 460 sound system. Although it may look like a stock GT, this clean sleeper is anything but!
