i wanted a talladega/ shelby/ torino lookin thing so i made one. still in the works but u get the idea, i wanted the talladega look without the long nose so i cut the front back and fabbed up a nose to look like a talladega, made a taller version of the mooby nascar spoiler, flared the fenders to house the 427 cobra knock off wheels and tires, then cut out the tail lights and fabbed in some modified cougar lights. still gotta four link it, coilover front and rear, run the exhaust out the rear quater in front of the tire and yea...alot more, oh well its a side project lol

I never realized how much the rear looked like a Mustang/Cougar till I saw it here.
AWESOME job on the flares!

Welcome, and what an incredible job. I'm partial to the '03 Cobra drivetrain (have one for my '68 Cougar), but a 428 is mighty cool.

Nice metal work! I've got a '69 Fairlane Cobra that's starving for attention that I've had for 30 years here in a couple of weeks.

filler panel was a pain but its fabbed up now. theres several mounting points i had to make from the underside to it looks flush from the outside and interlocks with the fenders. i know one thing...who ever buys this car and gets in a fender bender is screwed, cuz its all 1 off lol.
