I hate to do this, and if at all possible, I'd like to keep the "why's" out of it. It's hard to sell the car as it is.

Overall appearance:

Good. It has been a track car however. The hood was "warranty painted" due to cracks back around 2001. I had them fix the rear bumper per TSB to the 01 bumper at the same time. Due to constant construction locally, the front bumper looked terrible, so I had it repainted also. Paint tone is off, but when clean, looks great. Paint has the normal wear from distance driving, with a wonderful neighbor dinging the door on the passenger side. 2-ply metal, not all of the ding came out, but not distracting. Never wrecked, a couple of two wheel offs, and that's it. I drove the car to and from events, and wanted to mod it enough to survive going to and from, but make it an excellent track car. Those that know the car, know I pretty much hit it dead on. Definitely not a show queen, but looks and sounds good going to and from events, and cruising. I have the title, SVT certificate, ect. There are several with the SCMC club that know this car, and have been around it and me at several events, and know the blood, sweat and tears while building this thing. I don't think you could come close to building a "daily driver track car" for what I'm asking, and it still be a Cobra.

While I'm proud of the car, I'm also realistic. Here's what I'd like to see as far as price (which is most definitely negotiable, to serious buyers)

$15,000 obo

I have several pics, alot of them on track, some cage and diff cooler setup pics. I'll edit this later on as I dig them up on the computer.


As an afterthought: I will not part anything on this car out. I will not part the track wheels out, unless, during negotiating with a buyer, that buyer happens to not want them. Then I'll list them later - Thanks - Steve

The car is now sold, to a gentleman in South Carolina. I pointed him in this direction for support and activities.
