Ford Racing returned to NHRA@ Sportsman Racing with historic Mustang Cobra Jet Win!
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 of the original Cobra jet, the 2008 model hit the drag strip - and like its predecessor, it won first time out! Owned by Hajek Motorsports and driven by John Calvert, the Cobra jet stormed to victory at the 2009 NHRA@ Winternationals - a fitting tribute to its heritage.
Buoyed by its stunning performance and the demand for another NHRA@ - legal sportsman racecar, Ford Racing is proud to announce the new 2010 Mustang Cobra Jet.
Like the highly successful 2008 model, this new entry from Ford Racing is a factory-built race car (serialized, but not street legal), ready for the drag strip with only minor additional prep required from the racer. Interntionally limited production makes this Cobra Jet both the fastest drag racing production Mustang ever and also a highly sought-after collectable.
The 2010 Mustang Cobra jet (base number M-FR500-CJ10) is offered in five different engine/transmission combinations and joins Ford Racing's two successful road racing Mustangs, the FR500C and FR500S, as turn-key race cars available to racers of all levels. We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to help rewrite history by ordering and campaigning this new race car. Finally, while built to NHRA@ specs, this package will not be restricted to NHRA&64; competition.
