Midway Mustang & Midwest Fox Rods teaming up on next level Fox build
It is said “Competition Breeds Excellence.” These days, in the Fox Mustang game, next-level builds are becoming commonplace. With every build, the elevator keeps going up. Coyote swaps, wheelwell stretching rolling stock, the in-the-weeds stance, and custom paint have become increasingly popular with these builds. These builds fuel the fire for more killer builds, and of course, the next build has to be better than the last.
Midway Mustang’s Erik McDonald and Midwest Fox Rods’ Jon Wise hatched the plan at Mustang Week to team up on a next-level build that will breed even more builds in the future. After seeing Nick Meyer’s Coyote-swap 1993 Cobra, Erik and Jon discussed building a car together, and with Erik having a wrecked GT350 at his disposal, the plan was put into motion.
Erik found a 1993 Cobra that needed work, and it has already been sent to Jon’s place for the makeover. The plan is for Jon to smooth out the engine bay, drop in the GT350’s Voodoo engine with a supercharger on top, and add a Tremec T56 Magnum transmission with a McLeod clutch, a full suspension, CCW wheels, and a built 8.8 out back.
Inside, the guys are going to see if the GT350’s Recaro seats can be used, but if not, TMI Products will most likely get the call. To finish it off, Midwest Fox Rods will be applying Avalanche grey to the Cobra.
The plan is to have the car finished by the spring of 2018, but Jon says it will definitely be ready by Mustang Week.
