View Full Version : advice on buying a 96 Cobra

07-02-2010, 04:38 PM
Thank you in advance for all that respond. I have stumbled across a 96 Cobra with the Mystic paint, the car has 138K in mileage. The car is not pristine but looks good considering age and miles. My question is; is there anything in particular I should be concerned with due to the milage and anything specific that should check when I am looking at this car?

Asking price is 7200 and the car appears to be stock with no after-market mods. I want it just because and I will probably put 300 miles a month on the car until next summer then it transition to a infrequent driver.

Thanks again ERW2

Yes, compression test is a must...

I think you can get a car with less miles on it for about the same price or thereabouts. For a few dollars more however, there are some nice Rio Red 97 convertibles for sale on Autotrader. Check them out..
