"street-rodded" EMS Cobra replica. It features Porsche
8-way power seats transplanted from a Turbo Carrera, a full stereo-CD
sound system, a 351 Windsor with Edelbrock Power Package
and Jacobs Electronics, Hi-Tech dimpled-core radiator with custom
overflow and expansion tanks, a Vietnamese Mahogany dashboard
and Boyd Coddington custom wheels fitted with Yokohama Ativa
rubber. Those are "Tripod Light" peepers, a precise
reproduction of the P700 Lucas headlamps of the 1960s.

EMS is a custom builder. Our sizzlin'
serpent employs the layout of the Maine-ly Classics chassis,
enhanced with re-engineering of the bracing and the floors. This
augments the rigidity of this already-robust design. You can
specify a custom thickness for your handlaid EMS coachwork. The
door opening on your EMS Cobra replica is the widest in the snake
market. The 600-lb. (224-Kg)-capacity door hinge (see photo below)
floats on roller bearings. The door itself has 17" (43cm)
of 3/16" (0.48cm) folded steel for reinforcement. This combination
renders the EMS door one of the best-sounding and side-impact-protective
in the Cobra industry. The car is bigger than a standard 90"-WB
snake by 4" (10cm) in length, and 3.5" (8.9cm) in width.
The car is not merely stretched; it's expanded. This provides
you with a palpable advantage in both performance characteristics
and ride comfort. The foot box, pedals and seat are custom fitted
for you, so you don't just get in, you become a part
of your EMS driving machine.
Cobra replica to you is what we do better'n anyone. We fit even
the tallest or largest driver. We customize your EMS serpent
for you, from a daily driver to an all-out racing machine to
the most radical show car. We've spent years of effort addressing
and remedying the problems of the original design. We've refined
the performance and drivability while faithfully maintaining
the flavor of the original. If you're seeking a carbon-copy clone
of the original Cobra, you should pass us by. On the other hand,
if you're looking to have a sizzling snake custom-fitted and
custom-engineered to your specifications, you've come to just
the right snake maker!
