Were these cobra wheels the best ever on a Fox body? Maybe.
Those were the dead giveaway for a cobra BITD. They made me initially think the feature car was a cobra on first blush.
Wanted those wheels on my 4.6 Thunderbird, but the lug circle dimension was different.

All you need is the hubs off an '03-04 Cobra. The fronts are easy and cheap (think early MN12 Birds had to swap to later spindles to use the Mustang hub/bearing)The rears are sold as a kit-car part for using the 'Bird rear uprights on e.g. Factory Five Cobras, and are surprisingly expensive:http://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-rear-irs-hub-9904cobra.htmlI think that price has actually come DOWN a bit, I think I paid $180/each for a pair once. You can also redrill the MN12 rear hubs, ideally you also need to sleeve the hub snout out to the Mustang hub-pilot diameter (I've got a DXF drawing of a press-on sleeve for that if you need it...)
Thanks for the insight, Mrkwong. I was in college when I wanted to do the swap, and didn't have the where-with-all or funds to do the swap. I miss that car - Eibach Springs, Flowmaster exhaust, cold air induction; I fool heartedly traded it in 2001 for an Explorer Sport Trac that my now wife hated, and was sent on its way in short order.
Outside looks great, might want to remove the garden from the floor mat and give it an engine shampoo. Nice wheels.
I have to say that at this point in the evolution of the Fox Mustang market that car was probably a good deal if you can stand the Vehicle Code 23109(c) Red color.
