Hydrogen Powered Shelby Cobra: Vehicle Conversion 2001-01-2530

This paper describes the details of converting a gasoline powered 427 Shelby Cobra to run on gaseous hydrogen. The purpose of this project was to design a vehicle capable of beating the current land speed record for hydrogen powered vehicles.
The vehicle uses a modified 427 Ford FE engine as the powerplant with a specially designed electronic fuel injection system for metering the hydrogen. The engine was designed to produce near zero emissions (<10 ppm NOx) at approximately 270 HP using a lean burn, “quality controlled”, fueling strategy (no pollution control devices are utilized).
