Original rebuilt 4 speed toploader

Hi Bruce, Chris, Rob, etc.-

I took delivery of my 302/300hp engine in March, but didn’t get the car all set up and delivered from Cobra Automotive until the end of June.  I’ve been meaning to send you some photos of the engine installed.  It’s got Tri-Y ceramic coated headers, 2-1/2″ exhaust  with Flowmaster 50 series mufflers, and sounds great!  Running the original rebuilt 4 speed toploader and 3.25 Trac-loc gears.

I couldn’t be happier with this engine- starts and runs great, haven’t had to do a thing except adjust the idle to my liking.  Along with the upgraded new suspension and steering the car drives almost like one of Cobra’s vintage Shelby racers.   Well, not quite!  I’ve only been able to put about 500 miles on it, the biggest problem is not being able to open it up yet!  I took it to the Mustang Car Club of New England Fall show and got a first place in the 65-66 ‘stock’ class, and was helped by the great looking engine and freshly detailed engine compartment.

Thanks for your service and a great engine build.
