Custom Competition Dash

Nick worked with me to custom build a modified competition dash with added custom glove box. Nick was a pleasure to work with. I have a real attention to detail and Nick was quick to respond to all questions and built the dash to exact specifications. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The custom glove box is perfect going to look great in my 20th Ann Factory Five Roadster! Thanks Nick for a great job. Cheers

Acton Custom Best Of The Best

I trailered my 1991 427FE Contemporary Cobra to NH to have Nick install a watts linkage of his own design. Nick and Bonni are amazing and very gracious people with a phenomenal knowledge of Cobra's. The install went great and while looking my car over Nick didn't miss a beat. Quite a few other issues were discovered and corrected by Nick while I was there. When we were finished, I tested out the car and it performed flawlessly. The wheel hop, shake and trounce that I had been experiencing were virtually eliminated during a few good hard launches and it felt like a different car. I'm quite particular with my cars and pleased to say that Nick possesses all the knowledge and experience that I look for when having my Cobra worked on. Thanks Nick and Bonni! Charlie Malo

Contemporary 24 Gallon Gas Tank

Contemporary 24 Gallon Gas Tank


This is a 24 gallon bolt in tank for the CCX Contemporary Classic Cobras. It increases the capacity over stock by 6 gallons. They are constructed of marine grade aluminum for corrosion resistance inside and out. The tank is hand TIG welded and leak tested under pressure. The tank is divided with baffles to minimize fuel sloshing. They have dual fuel pickups for main and reserve mounted inside a trap to hold fuel at the pickups during cornering and acceleration. Pickup size is specified by the customer to existing fittings or to HP requirements. Tanks also feature a drain plug for service or as an additional fitting for a return line. Fill neck size is customer specified and is relocated from the original. This requires a different location hole through the trunk floor but in turn, allows a straight shot for faster and more complete filling with less blowback and surging. The tanks have a fuel sender flange to install a sender that will actually work with Smiths or any value fuel level gauge. Tanks also have a vent fitting to assist filling and to prevent a vacuum building up. We highly recommend a tip over valve plumbed into the vent line and a one-way valve in the fill hose. Any additional fittings or parts are available through us.
This tank comes with hanging straps and rear hangers all made from steel.
As always custom variations of this tank are available. Please contact us with any questions.

NOTE: This item is custom made to order and there is usually a lead time associated with it. Before ordering, please call or email us to confirm the lead time to be sure it will work around your project.
