This automobile was built in 2008 from a Factory Five Racing kit that has the specifications of a 1965 Cobra and Herb bought it last year.
The Formula Five Cobra weighs only 2,100 pounds and Herb has a 302 Ford V-8 with 340 horsepower thanks to normal aspiration by a 670 Avenger Holley four barrel. These kit cars can be ordered with as big as 460 cubic inch Ford motors. It has an H-frame.
I’ve seen Herb at Westchester, Downers Grove and Lombard; and have caught photos of him cruisin’. Don’t miss the Rip Chords hit song here.
