Post 1965 fastback project w/2003-4 Cobra drivetrain, IRS++++

Hi guys,

Please spread this around to anyone you know that might be interested.

I was collecting parts for this Resto-Mod build while I was finishing my Cobra replica (also a 4.6 DOHC drive train). Long story short, I just don't know if I have another one of these builds in me and I'm knee deep in other 'stuff' that makes me think I'd be better off finding a good home for this project.

Here are a few details (contact me for pictures) on what I'd like to find a good home for:

1965 Mustang Fastback
- Straight six, drive train in good shape
- TX car so body / frame in excellent shape
- I drove it home when I bought it
- No work has been done on this, e.g. I haven't torn anything off for the build
- Title is clear, but indicates flood damage at some point in the car's life (although I couldn't find any evidence of it)

2003 Cobra Parts
- 4.6 DOHC Cobra motor (w/blower), 15K miles
- Full wiring harness
- T-6 Trans (15K miles)
- Drive shaft
- Computer
- Gauge cluster
- Dual fuel pumps
- Ignition switch, Key & steering column controls
- Full set of parts (minus center section), for a 2003 IRS
- DVS modified IRS suspension 'cage' for '65 mustang

2004 Cobra Parts
- Complete IRS including center section

DVS Parts
- Full IRS conversion kit (the Koni version) for 1965 Mustang

1998 Cobra Parts
- Full 4.6 short-block (bottom end and heads), I had planned to use this during mock-up - it is a good block & heads for rebuild
- Other misc parts from a 1998 cobra (K&N filter, gauge cluster, etc.)

I'd like $25K OBO for everything (I have close to $30K in all of it). If you happen to know someone looking for a very high-quality 1965 Mustang, a complete 2003 / 2004 4.6 DOHC drivetrain, and a whole load of parts to build a resto-mod, please reply here or PM me.

I'm not quite ready to break it up (yet). But if I did, the car would be 14,750 OBO and would come with the IRS conversion setup and all the IRS parts.

This is probably more than I would want to tackle but what all is involved in getting the motor/transmission into one of these cars?

The DVS Restorations site has a good write-up on the IRS, its not a bad install. As for the motor, that requires a kit (several companies make them) to eliminate the shock towers and move to a more up to date front end (I like the ones that use late-model strut setups so you can run SN-95 / Cobra brakes on all 4 corners).

I forced a '98 DOHC into a Factory Five Cobra replica long before they supported the setup and had to do all sorts of frame work, but it really wasn't all that bad if you take your time. I did it all in my garage w/a 110v welder for mock-up then I took the frame to a welding shop for all the finish welds. You just have to take your time, think through things and make sure you've checked everything 2-3 times. Even after you do all that though, and you finish whatever car it is you're building, that first time you take the car up to highway speeds is a real exercise in trusting yourself...because all you can think about are all those welds, brake fittings, nuts, bolts, rivets, steering linkage, etc., etc.....and you hope to HE** that you didn't forget anything! :>

If you decide to break it up, I would be interested in the engine.

65 fastback

Do you still have this for sale? If you do can you send me some pics of the frame rails and floorboards of the car?
Thanks

I've sold the car and am in the process of trying to sell the drivetrain & parts. There's an ebay listing with pictures, just search on 'cobra 2003 motor IRS' and you'll find the listing. Thx.
