Once you sit in a high performance Cobra you experience the roar of the race car. but since most of our cars are driving for pleasure that Roar becomes a screaming headache after about two hours. You can also hear stories about neighbors complaining when you take your Cobra out early on Saturday to the local Cars and Coffee meet or Club day. we solved that problem with our Gen IV side pipes! They now include a real ceramic and stainless Muffler in a large custom built and hand-polished assembly. We have lowered the roar from a high of 130 db in the “normal” Muscle Car, to 92 db, and they are legal in all 50 States. Now you can hear a radio talk to the Navigator and still advertise that you are a formidable performance machine.
The Generation IV Cobra replica it's produced as a finished ready to drive automobile. Everett-Morrison is recognized worldwide on the world manufactures index as an OEM manufacturer. Also available in ready to assemble, it is available in three phases titled “Phase 1”, “Phase 2” and “Phase 3”. When all three phases are purchased together they include everything required for a drivable vehicle except for wheels, tires, engine and paint. Bold cars are exportable across the globe.
4” round tube frame has always been one of the most admired features of the EM car . The Generation IV has an all-new simplified 4” design. It has 29% fewer parts than our previous design. The new chassis has a removable transmission cross member and driveshaft safety loop at standard features. All EM cars incorporate a special alloy stainless steel frame.
EM thought of safety as well; the custom 21 gallon fuel tank is surrounded inside the frame; the cockpit is a fully surrounding cage with every part bolted to the frame or suspension and the twin door beams offer the greatest protection available in a sports car. The inclusion of a 5 point safety racing harness means the EM Cobra does not require airbags. Every weld is done by hand with highly experienced and trained technicians performing every detail. No robots here, just masterful welds with both strength and beauty.
Over the past 50 years EM has built replicas automobiles on 3 wheelbases, the original 90”, along with a 93” and a 96”. The 90” cars are replicas of the LeMans winning car of 1964 and is generally cramped for drivers over 6 feet in height. The main problem with the original design is really the sidepipes; the way they exit the body just forward of the footboxes causes the loss of about 4” of potential living room.
The Generation IV solution to this problem is to reposition the pedals forward about an inch, combined with lengthening the wheelbase 3” to a 93”. The lengthening has been done in the door which preserves the original shape of the car.
The Everett-Morrison fiberglass body has always been known for his strength, quality, good fit and symmetry but, with the Generation IV it is now even better!
We use a double veil to the outer shell which imparts a smoother finish to the gel coat and eliminates “show through” of fiberglass strands in every part of the car.
A special high-density woven core lines the floor of the cockpit, trunk compartment and wheel wells to increase the stiffness. The car does not flex when you step in and this increases rigidity of the body.
The bodies are made from vinyl ester resin for a superior finish and five layers of varying weight and weave fiberglass each part of which is cut from an extensive set of patterns to eliminate joints and overlaps.
EM footboxes are about 2” wider than the original car which is particularly important on the driver side as it allows the pedal spacing to be increased.
All of these features combined allow the Generation IV body to be the best in the industry.
EM uses a Ford Super 8.8 differential with fully independent four wheel suspension mated to EM custom-built racing axles capable of torques over 800 foot lbs. and they are mated to off the shelf 03-04 Ford Mustang GT hubs and spindles. Fully tune-able coil overs with single units in the front and dual units at each rear wheel are installed. We use Ford and readily available after market consumable parts. Every part of the chassis can be obtained from your local auto parts dealers and we also stock most parts for customers outside the US who need support.
Cars that go fast should stop fast. The Generation IV has vented rotors and easily sourced brake pads mounted on 13” front brakes and 11.65” rear brakes. Power assist is standard on the EM. Beginning in 2020 EM designed 6-piston aluminum billet calipers that are mounted on the front spindles. Available in brushed silver or powder coated in a vast array of colors.
The new Generation fIV fuel tank comes standard with safety foam baffling and a capacity of 21 gallons. We build the tank out of 11 gauge TIG welded aluminum then powder coat them to avoid the ugly dull gray or stained rear appearance. The filler, sender, pick up and vent tubes are now accessible with the rear right wheel removed and with the addition of the optional fuel bladder, the tank may be upgraded to a true racing fuel cell. There are no moving parts in the tank as we use electronic senders matched to our tanks.
The Cobra was a racing car with a fiberglass shell designed to accommodate a driver for a few hours at a time nearly all replicas followed this standard, including EM.Now all EM Cobras have taken comfort, safety and design to a new level. The Gen IV seat is a specially engineered steel frame suspension seat with removable headrest and optional lumbar support. Electric and heated seats are optional if desired. For additional cost we can build an orthopedic seat and back Are Gen 4 seat is fully compatible with our Gen III and can also be fitted to just about any Cobra replica manufactured over the last 20 years.
