would have been a kit car rather than a real cobra and obviously the owner didnt have the money to put a v8 in it
thought somone would say that ! but it was unfinished so lets hope it got finished with an engine to match the image of the car !!

That's a very dangerous statement you've made there Pete, imagine if people tried to copy what you've said, it'd be a recipe for disaster, you forgot the brown sugar. I think it was Clarksons Motor World.

you prob wouldnt put an escort engine in the f350 or in say a corvette as its underpowered that was my point ! if you can go bigger like my 100e had a rover v8 then go for it !!
