289 FIA/USRRC Cobra (ERA)
« on: June 29, 2021, 10:32:32 AM »
ERA 289 FIA/USRRC Cobra, built in 99. Nassau Blue, full FIA interior, 26k miles. The 68 302 was installed in late 2019 and was the motor in car #26, 67 GT-350. When car 26 was sold, the new owner wanted the original drivetrain back in the car. The 302 was installed and tuned by Don Hoevel from Hoevel Historic Racing and Performance. It has a Tremec 5-speed and a Jaguar 3.31 rear installed in 2017. The car sits on Avon tires and handles very well. The exhaust note is spectacular due to the seasoned 22 year old exhaust system. The early 80s 715 Holley center float sits on top of a Blue Thunder Cobra intake manifold. The original 15 steering wheel will be included and not the pictured 16 wheel. The original double-hump air cleaner will be replaced with a very accurate reproduction.

The Cobra was purchased from Wayne Carini and can be seen in at least two episodes of Chasing Classic Cars. The car was inspected by Curt Vogt/Cobra Automotive before purchase in 2016.

The engine stats from JD:
"Here are some quick stats on the engine going off the top of my head from when it was built in about 1998 or 1999:
Engine - '68 302 block .040 over with 289 crank, not a stroker, about 296 cubic inches
Don't remember the pistons whether there were cast or forged sorry, connecting rods from the '67 Shelby Hipo,
ARP aluminum heads (big valves),
Crane solid lifter cam slightly hotter than stock close to Cobra road race grind. I think .050 lift with 114 lobe centers, will accept Weber set-up
Roller-tipped high ratio Aluminum rocker arms
Melling oil pump,
aluminum water pump,
Engine stand dyno: HP 364, TQ 314
Chassis Dyno (rear wheel): HP 264, TQ 262"
Original Hi-PO connecting rods from Car 26
