Frequently Asked Questions
Click on a question to learn more
+ Can I use a different engine?
Yes, we can install any engine you would like. We recommend the generation 2 5.0 L 435-HP Ford Coyote V8 Engine, but we are happy to accomodate your engine and transmission choice. Please contact us to learn more!
+ Why would I buy a Cobra if I can build it myself?
That is a great question, and one we often get. We have additional information about this on our blog, https://www.formacars.com/blogposts/2018/12/should-i-build-my-own-car. Here is a simple explanation, if you really want the experience of building your own car, do it. If you really just want to enjoy the car, hire FormaCars to build it for you. The average time a person takes to build their own car is 2-5 years. That is 2-5 years your garage will be filled with tools and parts. In addition, costs accumulate very quickly. We are happy to chat with you to determine if building or buying will be a better fit for you. Please don't hesistate to contact us!
+ Are you an official Shelby Cobra builder?
The original Shelby Cobras were made in 1963-1967, but you can often find them at large auctions for six and seven figures ($). FormaCars is a Cobra Replica builder and we use the most advanced highly engineered frame and chassis from Factory Five Racing. Any "Shelby Cobra" built today is either a replica of the original or licensed by Shelby America. FormaCars uses the Factory Five Racing kits because they are the most advanced and highly engineered Cobra replica chassis designed to date and have a very long history of being the best in the replica marketplace. Call us to learn more about how we are leading the replica marketplace!
+ How long does it take for you to build a car?
Generally, it takes 90 days to completely build and deliver your car. That is after we have received the frame and chassis. A frame and chassis could take up to six weeks to be completed, so you are looking at about 120 days in total. Keep in mind that some custom modifications could extend your build time and we will be upfront on the expectations. Please call us to learn more about our build process!
+ Do you offer a warranty?
Yes, we offer a 24 month unlimited mileage bumper to bumber warranty with every new vehicle build. Please contact us to learn more!
+ Do you build a 427 and a 289 Cobra replica?
Yes, we can build you the 427 and the 289. We use Factory Five Racing frames and chassis, so you have the choice between the 289 (Mk4 USRRC Roadster), 427 (Mk4 Roadster), and the MK4 Challenge model.
