Mustang Cobra SVT
2 OWNER COBRA, ONLY 15K ORIGINAL MILES, SVT CERTIFICATE & MORE, EXTREMELY CLEAN
When the 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra was announced, it was a pretty big deal. Guys in the 5.0 aftermarket had been using many of these parts to build their own hi-po Mustangs, but when the factory combined all the goodies into a limited-edition package with a warranty, well, it was an instant collectable and the hottest car on the street in 1993.
A vast majority of the 1993 Cobras were bright red like this 15,887-mile original, but unlike its siblings, it remains completely stock and wonderfully well preserved. That's factory paint and despite the Mustang's affordable price tag when it was new, the finish quality was pretty darned good. The Fox platform had long since been perfected and the Cobra's subtle styling tweaks make it easy to spot: an open grille up front, revised ground effects without the GT's faux air vents, and a three-segment rear spoiler above a set of taillights that were similar to those found on the 1986 GT. As a low-mile car that hasn't been modified or abused, it remains in show condition throughout, with an awesome bright finish, great panel fit, and detailing that will make the guys at the next big Mustang show go nuts.
This Cobra, like a majority of its siblings, carries a gray leather interior that's almost identical to the GT, which is a good thing. The seats are supportive, the controls are intuitive, and with the upright greenhouse, this Mustang is easy to drive with great visibility. Everything was standard in the top-of-the-line Cobra, including A/C, power windows and locks, power mirrors, interval wipers, as well as a 5-speed manual transmission. There's a decent-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo, but we all know that's not the point of a car like this. The fastback body style also offers big storage, especially with the fold-down rear seats, and it comes with convenient tie-downs for the removable sunroof panel. You'll need it!
Ford was playing games with horsepower numbers in 1993, ostensibly to make the 1994 models look like a big leap forward. As a result, the Cobra was rated at 235 horsepower, which was a joke to most Mustang fans, who had long since learned that the GT40 package on the engine was good for at least 295 horsepower when purchased over-the-counter. The only real difference was the cast Cobra intake manifold, which worked with the larger injectors, bigger throttle body and air sensor, and upgrade GT40 iron heads to make the venerable 5.0 breathe better. Whatever the actual number, these were genuinely quick cars that didn't lose the Mustang's torquey, easy-to-drive personality. The 5-speed manual transmission received revised gear ratios and there was a 3.08 gear in the 8.8-inch rear end, which makes this a great highway cruiser. The suspension was tweaked to improve ride quality AND handling, which was a neat trick, and the Mustang finally got the 4-wheel disc brakes it had needed since, oh, about 1982. Special directional 17-inch alloy wheels were Cobra-only and carry 245/45/17 Goodyear Eagle radials that aren't the original Gatorbacks, but the next best thing.
Documented with a factory build sheet, warranty card, and owner's manual, plus all the SVT goodies, this 2-owner Cobra is investment-grade for a future that will surely come sooner rather than later. Call today!
