    and 4T80E 4 spd auto Transmission. New Custom Copper Radiator,
    Corvette Z06 Drilled and Vented Brakes (front/rear)
    Custom Engine cradle boxed and stiffened, with polyurethane bushings
    Motor sits inside the wheel wells, no overhang like some V8 swaps
    New Polyurethane suspension bushings (front/rear)
    New Rear sway Bar and Poly installed.
    4 new KYB shocks. Front swaybar poly new.

    I have removed drivers side door panel, and carpet, except for the rear bulkhead, which I was
    going to leave in place, I was going to build the interrior like the real car, no carpet, and fiberglass door panels.
    Finish the interrior, do 4 wheel alignment, and the car is done. Clean Florida title, 1987 Fiero GT.

    Sharp looking F40 and nice paint job....

    A tough sell however in this market....Keep listing it on eBay and Craigslist - I doubt you'll get any bites in here...

    Good luck!
    Life is too short to be driving Hondas!

    The GT40 is now topless..both cars are fun to drive, so is the F40, but the Cobra gets more attention then the other 2 combined, and it's far from a show car.

    It's hard to beat the "cool" factor of a Cobra and it's kinda like the Harley of cars.. A friend of mine has a 1930 Ford street rod and it's not in the best condition, but its painted one color and has a small block v8 out in the open and it's amazing how the car gets people honking and waving and tons of thumbs up gestures.. I can only imagine the same response to the Cobra on the streets..
    Looking at the 4 bolt Mustang wheels I am going to assume it's a Factory Five kit you have..

    Back to the topic, is your F40 the one that Bill owned that JR was working on for a long time?
