Folks, I'm having a bit of a problem. I'm trying to get my car back to stock. I purchased it from a dealer but I'm its second owner. I think the guy who had it previous may have modified some exterior parts but I'm not 100% sure. Does anyone know what parts came stock with an '01 SVT Cobra or where I could get this information? I'm more or less concerned with the shift knob (which I'm 90% sure is aftermarket) and the fuel door. Thanks.

Post pics of the items in question, and we can tell you if they are stock.

The fuel door should be a simple piece that is color matched with the rest of the body. If it has cobra emblem on it, or is billet aluminum or chrome, it is an after market piece. Look in my sig below for the rear shot of my 01 and you should get the idea of what they look like.

The shift knob should be bulky and leather wrapped with 1-5 and R on it. That is not as big a deal because it just screws on. You can get and set aside the stock piece and run a nice elegant, comfortable (key word) knob for regular driving. http://www.mgwltd.com/mustang_race_knob.shtml or http://www.mgwltd.com/mustang_gripper_shift_knob.shtml

The shifter itself is a must change as the stock shifter is horrible. It is a 30 minute swap that you can do yourself and you can keep the stock one to put back on if you ever feel the need. Here is the best one on the market http://www.mgwltd.com/mustang_shifter.shtml
