Sidchrome Project Cobra Part 2

Last month we showed you the beginning of the Cobra project car currently being built by Sidchrome. It's going to be a custom-made Cobra tribute which will be fabricated by Python Vehicles in South Melbourne and powered by a variant of the Ford five-litre Coyote V8. And the best bit is, you could end up with the keys to it. Both Unique Cars and Street Machine magazines will be following the build along the way and we'll keep you updated each month with the progress.

In this video update, the guys at Python have finished adding the suspension, brakes and steering to the frame and completed the fabrication of the countless brackets and bespoke pieces needed to mate a brand-new Coyote V8 to the classic Cobra.

At this stage, the engineer is called in to check that everything will meet the letter of the law, before the body is trial-fitted for the first time. The body will come on and off multiple times, so that the Python boys can check and double-check that everything works perfectly before the car is bathed in Sidchrome red duco. Nobody wants to go back and re-engineer anything after the paint is done! And don’t think that because the shell is fibreglass that the bodywork is easy; there is a ton of work involved in getting the foundations right so that the end result is show-quality.

In the next instalment, the driveline will be fitted to the car and all the plumbing and wiring will be done to the point that the Cobra will be able to be driven around without a body. Then the whole vehicle will be blown apart, with every single piece bagged and tagged, before going off for coating. Once it all comes back, Joe will have an awesome jigsaw puzzle to assemble, after which the car will head off for paint.
