BUT...all King Cobras DID have the 302. We still do not know what trim level it is. For all we know, it could have had a V8 transplant done in the past.
There is no doubt they can be made to go fast now. I bet now someone has managed to massage in the 4.6L modular V8. But it wont be too fast if it has the original motor, exhaust, and emissions equipment still on it. The two biggest power-suckers on any car of that era are the cat converter (back then, there were two types. One was a monolithic type, like what is still used today. The other was catalyst-covered beads that was a joke), and the AIR pump, which usually seized after a few hundered miles.
Carbs and vaccuum lines are no fun either.
Welcome, downwardly mobile yuppies, to the dawn of the Age of Nefarious.
