Project Silver Snake
We at 301Customs are putting together a 1965 AC Cobra replica from Hurricane Motors.
Below you will see an overview of what we will be adding to this car and some links that
will show you, as best as possible, step-by-step the process we went through to build this
We are going to try to follow the build site template setup by a the builder of a beautiful '69
Camaro called Quick Silver. He had a great template for showing how things were done so we figured we would follow that.
Check out his website at http://project-quicksilver.com, it is a great site.
This car will be equiped with the following:
1) The first order of business is building the engine. Engine Build
- 351 Windsor motor running around 400+HP and 400+fpt. (Hopefuly)
- IFS and 9" Solid rear suspension.
- Customize the interior with stereo and special switches and guages.
- Velocity Stack fuel injection intake manifold.
- Push to start ignition.
- Will add an air-jack system, should time and money permit.
- Will add a flip down front license plate holder, should state law require a front plate.
- Looking at 17x11" wheels in the rear and 17x9" for the front, both having a 4" backspace.
- Tires will be 315/35/R17 for the Rear and 275/40/R17 for the front.
- More to be added as we come up with ideas...
