Ford Mustang FR500CJ Cobra Jet

The 2008 Ford Mustang FR500CJ Cobra Jet is a factory-built race car (serialized but no VIN), ready for the drag strip with only minor additional prep required. It is available for order from any Ford dealer as a Ford Racing part. Following are key Ford Racing components to help define this exciting new race car:

In 1968, Ford took the NHRA Winternationals by storm with the Ford Mustang 428 Cobra Jet. Only 50 factory lightweights were built, and in its first appearance, the Cobra Jet won. Forty years after this historic event, Ford Racing is happy to announce that the legend continues with a new NHRA-legal race car - the 2008 Cobra Jet Mustang!
