Ok guys i have a question. I am looking to buy a '98 Cobra and it looks really good but it doesnt have the SVT logo on the trunk like i have seen on many other Cobras. Are all Cobras "SVT" or no? If they are all "SVT", the why isnt the logo there? Could the trunk not be original? I ran the VIN on CarFax and it comes back as a Cobra. Thanks for any help. James :thumbsup:

If it comes back as a Cobra on a carfax then it is a Cobra. All Mustang Cobras are SVT's. The 1998 probably had a decklid replaced or fixed and they forgot to put the lettering back on or maybe someone took it off the trunk lid and the owner never replaced it. If you want to send me the VIN, I'll verify it for you.

Thanks!

Thanks for the replies! The VIN is sent. The asking price was 11,998, less tax title ect. I offered him $12,000 drive off price and we settled on $12,200. It has 55k miles and looks awsome. Im no Cobra expert but i think that its a decent price. Please correct me if im wrong :(. Thanks again for your help. James
P.S. here some pics. :D
