After having tons of fun with a few 427 cars I wanted to experience a small block car.  Not being able to successfully locate an affordable slabside (street 289) that I like leaves me with an FIA.  I typically prefer "street" cars over racier versions but this FIA car has me hooked.  Very enjoyable to drive, tons of power, great looks and the only problem is the extra attraction from the cops (:

I had photos here but was asked to remove/change them due to my watermark.  Therefore, you will just have to imagine them (:

Thank you!  Yes, started as a Ford Racing (SVO) 351W, but is a mild 393 Stroker.  Highly versatile and enjoyable engine that can putt around at low RPM and also really wake you up at 6K RPM.

Like all good Cobras the radio is indeed surround sound with the head unit up front under the bonnet and the side speakers under the doors/rockers.  Beautiful stereo but you only get one station (no commercials)!  Chug a Lug

The FIA design is far superior to the old, plain street Cobra, IMO.  Weber's would look great on it too........ Chug a Lug
