1997 Granatelli “Wide Body” Custom Cobra SVT Mustang Convertible

427 V8 650+hp 6-Speed High Performance Show Car

Original Owner - California Car

Unique high performance Cobra Mustang from the famed Granatelli stable of exceptional custom designed Fords and modeled after the 1000 hp Street Driven Summit Racing Pro Millennium million dollar Mustang. this custom Granatelli Cobra Mustang “FANG” is the 650+ hp little brother. Granatelli built only three similar custom high performance Mustangs: Pro Millennium (aka QuikStang). THRILLER & FANG (aka FAST STANG).

The body for this one-owner Ford Cobra Mustang was modified using “All Steel” and no Bondo. The hood. nose and rear diffuser were one off and fabricated with a Carbon Composite. The car was finished off with six coats of black Giasurit paint and twin silver stripes.

Once completed. this custom Granatelli “Wide Body” Mustang was featured in the Main Hall at SEMA in Las Vegas by Granatelli Motor Sports and in 2001 Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords did a 4-page full color spread on the car.

This High Performance Cobra Mustang is as happy on the street as it is on the track and runs as good as it looks. It was built to be a 200+ MPH Cobra Mustang convertible and JR Granatelli recently stated that he drove it on the open road at a speed of 200MPH and there still was plenty more to go. JR Granatelli sincerely refers to this beauty as "one of his Babies"!

Granatelli started out with a loaded new 1997 Mustang Cobra SVT convertible and made it wider. lower. faster. stronger and cooler – they pretty much transformed the car into a 650 hp high performance show car that will reach speeds in excess of 200mph. With only a few hundred miles on it since it left Granatelli. FANG has since been out of the public eye being tucked away in Santa Barbara garage. Everything is still in excellent condition (see all recent pics in this listing) and it is offered for sale by the original owner.
