Cobra Jet Drag Car #37 of 50, Never Raced.

Number 37 of 50 2008 Mustang Cobra Jet Drag Cars. Built 40 years after the release of the original versions at the 1968 NHRA Winternationals, these special Ford Racing-engineered vehicles spearheaded the brand's return to its NHRA sportsman roots, where they have played a very competitive role ever since. At 3,200 pounds, they certainly qualify as “lightweights,” and took advantage of 21st-century engine technology with a low rotational-drag blower design. Purchased from Jacky Jones by Nick Smith via the original Bev Smith Ford franchise, this example is literally brand new, showing just 0.5 actual miles at the time of this listing. The car was basically moved from the transporter to the climate-controlled facility. Now, with a true 50th anniversary of the Cobra Jet at hand in 2018, this car is being offered for sale. This example is FR500CJ#37 and was branded in 2008 as the fastest limited-production drag-racing Mustang ever released. Offered turnkey from the factory, the engine is the supercharged 5.4L V-8 rated at a conservative 420 HP. Includes the updated SD card for 118 octane fuel and accompanying Procal flash tuner, both unused. It has the 6-speed manual transmission, the racing-design black interior and it was delivered in all-white, similar to the original 1968 versions. Like the Hellcat Dodges, the car is only legal to NHRA's 10-second limit as built, with a fully blueprinted version of this model eventually becoming the very first NHRA Stock Eliminator car to break into the 8-second barrier. For off-road use only, it nonetheless remains in tune to run on 91-octane fuel and represents a watershed moment in Ford's Racing's involvement. Formerly part of the renowned Nick Smith Collection.
