Since I'm new with owning a Cobra, this is a smart question, but a stupid person asking it? Are all Cobra's hand-built? :doubt: Do all of them have a plate under the hood that says they were hand-built? If so, where is it? Mine's a 97.., if that helps? So sorry if this is a noob question, I was just curious?

Thanks
Jason

I'm sure someone will currect me if I am wrong, but the Cobra's began having hand built engines in them with the dawn of the 4.6 DOHC Cobra engine in 1996.

They had the stickers on them with the 2 engine builders names on them on the passenger side valve cover... which later (in 98 or 99) was revised to be a etched plate that didn't come off or get ruined as easily as the sticker.

do you still have the sticker or did it fall off?

It might be worth while to call 1-800-Ford-SVT and see if they can send you a replacement plate :dunno:
