In 1968 Ford took the NHRA Winternationals by storm with the Cobra Jet Mustang. Only 50 units were built and released to Ford Dealers and Ford racers, and in its first appearance the Cobra Jet won.
To commemorate the 40th Anniversary, the time has come for a new 2008 Cobra Jet Mustang. Ford Racing is proud to announce this new NHRA-legal race car.
The 2008 Ford Racing Cobra Jet Mustang (FR500CJ) is a factory-built race car, ready for the drag strip with only minor additional prep required from the racer. Intentionally limited production makes the Cobra Jet not only the fastest drag racing production Mustang ever but also a highly sought after collectible.
You can build your own Cobra Jet Mustang, from body-in-white on up, with these authentic Ford Racing parts that were engineered developed and tested for the 2008 factory-built Cobra Jet FR500CJ Race Car.
