1978 Ford King Cobra with Bill (ASP)
Check out the ASP's Blog: (http://autoshowcaseproject.blogspot.com/)
Auto-Showcase Project (ASP) presents Bill's 1978 Ford King Cobra.
Interesting fact, Bill's King Cobra was actually in the movie Zookeeper
with Kevin James. He stated that Kevin James actually sat in his car!
Plus, he autographed his car!
ASP thanks Bill for showcasing his 1978 Ford King Cobra.
This WWII Packard Marine V12 lives on today in a competition pulling
tractor. It's other two brethren from the same PT boat (one with a hole in
the side) also exist as spares. It's present owner rebuilt it from scratch
years ago, and learned as he went. It is fed aviation fuel by twin Predator
carburetors, through a custom built aluminum plenum manifold to the Supercharger.
These engines sound unlike any other V12, were a "clean slate" design, and
do not come from other designs.
From elsewhere on the 'Net:
"Despite the commonplace assumption, the new-generation Packard marine
engine, initially tagged the 4M-2500, was anything but a re-popped Liberty
V12. Instead, Vincent, Packards lead engineer, started with a clean sheet
and designed a four-stroke, 60-degree V-12 with an aluminum block with a
bore of 6.04 inches and a 6.50-inch stroke, which brought it to 2,490 cubic
inches. Weighing 2,900 pounds, the 4M-2500 had four valves per cylinder, a
6.4:1 compression ratio, and a centrifugal Supercharger, later models were also fitted with
an Intercooler. A Holley
1685F aircraft carburetor supplied the fuel, 100-octane gasoline, fired by
two spark plugs per cylinder. The first engines developed 1,200hp, but
improved versions with higher Boost
levels nominally made 1,500hp. Packard built 14,000 marine engines during
the war, three of which went into each of the Navy's 768 PT boats, two
astern and one amidships for better service access. "
Packard built many thousands of engines prior to the second world war
including car engines, of course, and the famous "Liberty" V12 aircraft
engines and Packard's own developments and patents and other developments
and inventions by the likes of General Electric on Superchargers went into the development of the
Packard marine engine that were produced in their thousands during the war
to power the U.S. Elco and Higgins PT Boats and the British Vosper MTB's
(Motor Torpedo Boats).
The Packard 4M 2500 engine powered most, if not all, of the US built PT
Boats. The pre and early world war II engines developed some 1200 brake
horse power, this had been increased to 1350 BHP and then by the end of the
war 1500 BHP, therefore a late war Elco 80' PT had three engines producing
a total of 4,500 brake horse power and could guzzle 5000 gallons of 100
octane aviation fuel in one night of operations. The cruising speed of the
Packard was stated as 2400 rpm but note that the Elco "dashboard"
tachometers show a top speed of 3000 rpm. I assume that this means that the
top speed of the Elco at some 41 knots could only be sustained for a
relatively short period of time.
1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra 289 V8 4 BBL - Nicest I've Seen
I thought you might like a look at this 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra. A lot of time
and money has gone into the construction of this one. It's powered by a
healthy 289 V8, topped with all the Shelby Cobra accessories, a polished
intake, and a Holley 4 BBL carb. All that power is being sent throught a
C4 automatic trans with a Hurst shifter. The metallic blue paint is slick,
it has a custom Shelby tri-duct style hood, and it's riding on some
Halibrand knock-off style wheels. The interior looks like new and they
upgraded the stereo with an Amp, aftermarket speakers, and a subwoofer.
This really is the nicest Mustang II I've come across. These
cars are very lightweight as well, so it should move along pretty well with
that 289 under the hood. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking

komplett, bis auf die Achsen vorne und hinten, zerlegt.
Das Auto wird nach der Abmontage der Achsen zum Sandstrahlen gebracht und

paar Roststellen sind am Heckteil und an der Karosse zu finden.
Der Mustang stand ca. 4
Jahre in einem Schuppen und wird nun gerettet.Der V8 Motor ist beim ersten
umdrehen sofort gelaufen und hat nen Mördersound! Natürlich braucht es
jetzt ein bisschen Liebe und Geduld.Die Farbe letztendlich wird schwarz
matt mit weiss matten Streifen.Stay tuned!

Not been actually Dynoed to find out, nor have I
been to the track to know a quarter time yet
ran the car this last weekend (10/19/08) in the 1/8th. only run 2 passes
with a best time of 9.824. The biggest problem I had was traction. I spun
through 1st and 2nd gear, and got to 3rd at the end of the track and spun a
little again. One of this winters projects will be to install a locker of
some sort. Next will be bigger tires.
*Update 7/21/10* Finally got new wheels and tires and a locker, but went
ahead and upgraded the ring and pinion while I was at it. It now wears
165/80-15's in the front, 265/50-15's in the rear on Summit brand Weld
Draglite style wheels with a Detroit Locker and 4.62's. Hopefully soon I
will put together another video with everything included....
