New member from Stockholm Sweden


Recommended Posts

This is my first post on this forum, which I joined as Shelby Team member some weeks a go.

I'm a Cobra replica builder and hope to see more information about the Cobra on this forum.

I drive a 1996 Mustang GT on weekdays and my Cobra hopefully will be finished about summer 2010.... :headspin:


The Cobra is powered by a brand new 1998 Mustang 4,6L 32V DOHC Cobra engine with a Centerforce HP Clutch and a T-45 5-speed manually gearbox and a Mustang 8,8 rear axel with 31 splined shafts hanging in a 4 link with coilowers. In front there is a Art Morrison IFS arrangement (Mustang II style) also with coilowers. Brakes will be Willwood 6 caliper on 14" rotors in fron an 4 caliper on 13" rotors in back.... and YES it's propably overkill of the year on a 1050 KG (2200 pound) car, but it might help me to some nice prices at carshows.


The engine will be force feed by a Vortech V-2 blower i'v been using on my Grand Cherokee 5,2L with exellent result.


Well that's it for now. Please send me a message if U have any Q. or comments.

Welcome to this board! I've been to Stockholm a couple of years ago and although my stay was brief, I found it to be a very nice city. Of all places, it is also there that I saw a Ford GT "live" for the first time. It had the heritage color combo (powder blue and orange). Maybe you've seen it as I guess there must be very few of them driving around in Sweden.

Sorry I haven't seen the one You mention, maybe it was on a visit here like You :burnout:


But I have seen two other GT's rolling around on the streets of Stockholm, one blue'n white and one red'n black?.

Welcome to the site Shelby Micke. I am sure you will enjoy it as it is a great forum full of great people.


I am often in Sweden, as I work for Sandvik, and quite often go to Sandviken and other parts of the country. I was in Malmo just last month and will be in Stockholm next month again.

Hi All

An other Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Conv, coming to småland, Sweden.

Vista Blue with all options.




After several years of looking and searching for the right opportunity I finally found it.

At a Ford Dealer in La Grange in Texas, there it was.


It had what I had been looking for, it was not Brand new as I planned from the beginning, but it had all other advantages including a good titel (very important in order to have a simpler procees of import and registration).


I Purchased the car in January.

I ordered all upgrading parts needed for the SUPER SNAKE conversion.

I went to La Grange in end March, was in the Dealers garage during the upgrading, working with the people, and learning a lot of things.

Beginning April it was loaded on a truck, bringing the car to west coats as a friend will take car of the shipping and registration and importation issues.

This week it will be loaded on the ship so end June I hope it is ready on the road in Sweden.


I have found may new friends along the road in this process.


I am waiting for the car every day now....


I will update you more later.
