Oooh a street cobra!  I've always loved those, and I considered it very hard.  It will certainly be a rare build.   Can't wait to see it.

I wish I had a drawing.  I had a posterboard template I cut up to test fit, and once I made my bracket I tossed it.  Should have saved it into my build book.  Wait, i may have ... let me look for it tonight

You can also obtain this bracket from Shelby https://www.shelbyengines.com/products/remote-oil-filter-bracket

That bracket is for FE and will not fit a small block.

I do have a filter relocation kit that I need to install since the stock filter for the 351w block is huge and will just about touch the inner fender liner once I have the brackets installed for that.  Where are people mounting these?  I've seen some mounted right on the front of the engine, but the mount I have isn't going to fit there very well unless I make a separate bracket for it (which is fine).  Any suggestions?  I'm going to need some right angle hose connections for the kit I have since they come straight out both the end for the block and the filter end and I know that won't work for this application.


I fabricated a remote oil filter bracket like the original 427FE brackets, for my 351W, which mounts to the water pump.  You can see some pics in this post:

Paul, there was a guy from Mexico that brought a Hurricane to our Texas Cobra Meet years ago, before I ordered my cobra from Hurricane, so it was maybe 10 years ago.   He went a step further and had actual aluminum hood, trunk and doors, with the edges rolled over the tube frame EXACTLY like the originals.    It looked amazing.   I've thought of going with that at some point down the road.

I'd like to get the back half of that busted up 427 body.

For a spare or make a bench seat out of it?

cargo trailer.

This is Mike Arps parts stash. Looks like he's decided to unload rather than complete. Pretty sweet deal, if you know what it is.

Hey Bob, just wondering if you got a PM on here? Seeing if the messaging works or not.

I just checked and saw your PM and responded.  I didnt get a notification email so I guess you have to check sign on here and check.

Only because there are about 123,999 FRR owner/builders and only approx 150 Hurricane owner/builders.    We are a rare breed like a fine wine ;)

Have enjoyed reading both of your builds, still planning here but hope to start one this year.

Bob, plans for paint?

Thanks, Greg.  No paint in the foreseeable future.  Have a daughter's wedding to pay for this year, and the wife has restoration/renovation plans for our 100 year old farmhouse....  and we are just having too much fun driving the cobra ....  ;)
