The Story Behind the 'Cobra' Explorer
Everyone always asked me, "Why a 'Cobra' Explorer?" I have always wanted my rides to be different and unique.
No matter if it was my vehicles, jet skis, boats, or motorcycles - I did not want them to be like everyone else's. I
have always admired the vehicles of the SVT Department of Ford Motor Company, and wanted to build something of
equal strength on my own.
I was able to get in touch with the SVT Department and talk to managers, engineers, and designers. I asked if they
were ever going to release a SVT SUV like the Explorer. They said they doubted they would because of issues in
safety and with general interests by the consumer. I decided I would build a Cobra Explorer myself, and build it like
the SVT Department would if they ever were to produce an SUV. I again talked to engineers and designers at SVT
about certain aspects that would make this project seem plausible. They were very helpful with ideas and products
they would suggest using. They were also very helpful with general information about SVT and their vehicles.
