Project Car Build Ups
This section is an opportunity to look  at some SN95 Mustangs modified to suit their owner’s
requirements. These cars represent some well-sorted packages that can provide valuable insight
into which parts combinations are effective for different activities.
Open-Track ’99 Cobra
This car started as a street car, complete with child seat and all. Now it’s four years later, there isn’t
even a back seat, and the car hasn’t seen the street in two years. Now that the evolution is mostly
complete, this car is fast. 1:36 at Mosport is pretty stout, made possible by its 400 hp and light
weight. The chassis is well sorted on this car, and it’s an easy car to drive quickly. This father and
son duo spend a good deal of quality time together at tracks all over the eastern U.S. and Canada.
In this respect alone it has to be considered an unqualified success.
Ford Mustang Open Track Race Car Roll Cage in an open track race Ford Mustang
A father and son team drives this car all over
North America to open track events. It sure beats
the heck out of golf!
The extensive roll cage on this car
contributes to the overall stiffness of the
chassis, which is part of the reason it
handles so well.

Street Racer ‘96 Cobra
This ’96 Cobra has evolved over several years to become a very quick street-driven Mustang,
capable of 9.50 ETs at over 150 mph. This car still has the full factory interior, plus a roll cage, and
yet is purposely understated, with no monster tach on the dash or unnecessary items to draw
attention to the car. Only the factory Mystic paint and the wheels and tires give some hint of the
cars potential. Under the hood however, it’s a different story, with a full-on 4-valve engine,
supercharged with an F-2 Procharger, cog-drive belts, sheetmetal intake, and a C4 transmission
with transbrake. This is one cool Mustang. It can cruise the strip, and lay down the number when
required, but like most nocturnal animals, is rarely seen during the daylight hours.
900 Horsepower Cobra
This ’96 Mystic Cobra looks
pretty stock on the outside,
but with 900 hp on tap,
9.50-seond ETs at 150 mph
are not out of the ordinary.
Roll Cage
