We usually associate Cobra with mustang but this snake/stallion combo is just as lethal to its prey on the streets. With a true “overcoming the odds” story from an owner who had to rehabilitate himself after a tragic and almost life ending accident, this amazing machine was customized by a talented man named Brook Phillips who is now transforming 67’s & 68’s for others.
Brook had a long history with cars and this Pit Viper project was his way of rehabilitating his basic motor functions and gaining back not only the strength he had once before, but placing his passion into a project that when finished would be his masterpiece and trophy of self preservation and triumph.
With a 351w stroked to 427 by Keith Craft this power plant would produce 575hp of carbureted venom at the flywheel. Attached is a Tremec 6-speed sent to a 9″ rear-end packed with 3.73:1 gears. Looking closely to the suspension components revealed that a few 4th Gen Mustang goodies were fitted in order to improve handling and braking. With 13″ Baer rotors on all four corners covered by some HRE 19×9 F & 20×11 R gives this snake a decent contact patch in which to strike. (There are going to be a few snake puns and play on words so deal with it)
