    I posted this before but didn't get to lengthy with my answer. the cobra ?

    2000 was a skip year aslo, save for the cobra r, due to the big problem of the cobra failing to produce the claimed hp rating. problem was found to be bad heads and ford had to replace all the heads on customers cars and production vehicles. this stopped all production until it was fixed.

    the next lax came after 2001 they introduced the terminator project; code named this to finally finish off or terminate GM's fbodies. it was supposed to be an early 2002 release but turned into a late 2002 release and a two year deal 03-04. the was a tuff time for john at svt, and ford was giving him crap over the terminator, he seen it through to production and then it was pretty much it for him....he was the man.

    ahhh another loaded question..

    3 motors.

    less than 10% came with the turbo 4cyl. motor so a very rare combo

    the 5spd cars cars came with a 4 barrel carb V8

    the AOD cars came with CFI or centrally fuel injected 5.0's


    LOL leave it to ford :shrug: .

    Other than the T-Tops (Developed by Ford glass division and fitted by Cars & Concepts) on the 3 used at Indy? Nothing as far as I remember.


    Q) Where were the production pace cars assembled?

    Q) What unique feature in a real pace cars vin # identifies it as such?

    Q) What transmission did the actual race prepped pace cars use?

    1) 1990

    2) I'm going to guess 1990 due to the air bag (don't remember my mom's 91 GT having it)

    3) got me stumped on this one.

    #1 correct

    #2 1991

    #3 I should ahve giving the year but it would have still been hard. In 1993 all cars sold in new york state had to come with a rear window defrosterwhich was an option on the mustang, this made it a manditory added cost option to the car sold to new york.

    raven_ghostwolf is correct although the doors where redsigned to remove the frame but I guess that would go along with roof design, I will go even further on what made the real pace different from the production car.

    the motors had special performance stuff including;

    holley 600 4 barrel
    1969 ford dual plane aluminum high rise shelby style intake
    1974 ford police interceptor chrome intake cleaner
    1971 ford 351 windsor heads with 72 1.84 intake & 1.54 exhaust valves
    1969 windsor valve springs
    1969 boss 302 connecting rods
    1970 boss 302 solid lifter cam and lifters
    1970 boss 302 forged crank
    ford 289 HiPo valve springs retainers, rocker arms, rocker studs and nuts
    TRW forged aluminum pistons with speed pro rings
    TRW clevite 77 bearings
    Jack Roush performance pushrods and oiling system

    backed by modified C-4 trannies.

    how about that for some trivia :nice: .

    Thing is the 1984 SVO also had the 16" wheels those wheels where an SVO exclusive.
    Sorry about the large size of these but too much is lost when making the scans smaller.
