    Lookin good.............I have done a few "snaptite" Cobra conversions/builds. This one was converted from the factory "427" to resemble one of the "289" cars.

    Wheels and inserts are from RSLotracing, but, a few folks do make the correct Halibrand inserts.

    Our 60's sportscar class requires a non podded chassis, a "slow" motor, and 9mm (max) rear tires, so this was built using a modified PCS chassis, and a BWA motor.
    The "427" side pipes were replaced with a single pipe (each side), exiting just below the bodywork.

      The Snaptite Cobra is a good choice of kit and I've used 15x8 hubs on mine and the kit inserts were a near perfect fit.
