You know those stories you hear about “that guy who got so deep into his
ginormous hot rod project that he couldn’t get it finished, then had to sell it for pennies on the dollar”? Yep, you guessed correctly; I’m “that guy”. Nice to meet you. My name’s Dave and I have a 1997 Ford SVT Mustang Cobra for sale. Now, turbocharged and “set-to-kill”. (More on this later) Original owner? Your’s truly. So that means chances are pretty decent you can get a very good answer to any question you might have about the modifications done on this car. And there are
a lot of them. Just about everything done on this car has been done at Blood
Enterprises by the best in the business around here, starting with Craig Blood. Craig has generously offered to answer your technical questions about the build via email at [email protected]
So, back to that “Set-to-kill” part. The goal of this car was to be either A: Create a built-to-the-hilt street driven/track raced, turbo, 9-second car like you might see on the show “American Outlaws” or B: Transition it to a full-time race car. It still has a full interior, but the turbo conversion is stopped right at a stage that would be good for the new owner to make this choice for themselves.
The engine is at Blood Enterprises and the rest of the car is in a secure
location near the shop for your loading up and “treasure-hauling” convenience.
The engine: 4.6 DOHC Cobra Motor built by Craig Blood, Teksid aluminum block,
balanced by Dave Bliss, Modified Hellion turbo system with a Precision 76mm turbo.
Estimated horsepower goal in the 900 - 1000 range. Too many parts to list here. But I believe it’s at least worth what I’m selling everything for.
The Mustang: 1997 SVT Mustang Cobra, 1 owner. 12 pt. NHRA certified Chrome Moly rollcage (Requires new re-certification), Recaro seats, Simpson 5 pt. harnesses, B&M Pro ratchet shifter with custom fabricted housing, AutoMeter gauges, Kenny Brown Subframe Matrix, Griggs tubular K-member, A-arms, 1/2” braided teflon and solid fabricated fuel lines, Wheelie bars (Not installed), Simpson Parachute with
removable mount, 2 rear wing options including Ed Quay aluminum racing wing, M/T ET Streets and skinnies on Bogart Racing wheels, PA Racing C4 Super Comp (Note: A move to a race prepped Powerglide would be recommended for the increase power from the turbo vs the Vortech T-Trim supercharger that was on it before. That was our plan.)
This is a top-level build, again, too many parts to list here.

It will give you a good idea of what this car is like. (Turn up the volume.)
If you are interested in taking advantage of a massive “project car” discount, give me a call. My loss can be your win light.
