    I would have bought this over the car I bought about a month ago but you didnt want to go down at the time and I had 10,500 cash! Trust me I would of rather had to build the motor than by the car I did that has hundreds of rockchips filled in with the wrong color paint, and now I have to get the a pillars, front and rear bumper, and fender repainted ( Thanks RED98COBRASTANG), not to mention he told me it had a built hanlon trans. that now whines after I have put about 300 miles on it, and than he told me that he rebuilt it with hanlon parts. This is the car I wanted but couldnt afford at the time, too bad I would of loved to own this one, I have to rebuild the stuff in mine anyway, plus this one is in way better condition. Punching self in the face!!!! wanna trade by any chance :D

    You should sell your car to one of the guys above and then buy mine!

    yeah but with my luck, I would sell it for less than what I bought it for and than yours would be gone and I would be stuck with no car! trust me I would love to cruise in your car, that way I wouldnt have to do any work to it, it has exactly what I want to do to mine besides the blow by on the motor. If I had a buyer for my car right now I would definitely do it though. GLWS, plus I now have put over 2000 into this car on top of what I bought it for and now have a 6 speed going in it and have an appointment to repaint the stuff I mentioned, since the previous owner said the car was in perfect condition on here except for the things on the bumper and the dent, he failed to mention the huge scratches and literally over 50 huge rock chips that he filled in with way darker paint than stock so they are all noticeable. I guess thats what I get for buying a car in bad weather raining all over the car so I couldnt see them when I bought it. It's BS and now he will not return phone calls or texts, I am done buying cars off the internet because everytime I do this happens to me. Not that I dont like the car its just when i look at cars like this for the same price I get the good ol' buyers remorse!

    OK lets trade titles and I'll take it off your hands sound good! Why couldnt you go down to this price about a month ago. you wouldnt budge from 13K so I just looked elsewhere, this is my luck though

    I have other priorities right now and the give away price shows that. I did not NEED to sell it then and I wasn't going to take any less for it because the car is literally pristine.

    The buyer of this car can drive it just like any other Cobra all summer long and if they are still concerned with how it runs at the end of the summer they can put an amazong shortblock in the car for around 2K and bump up the boost. All for less than I bought it for less than a year ago.

    Some people would rather buy a car that the seller was dishonest about a lot of things on the car, have it need body work (which is more costly than a motor for just about anything) and still have a stock motored cobra that will someday need a rebuilt plus a ton of body work.

    I will say that this car is cleaner than probably 80% of the 03/04 Cobras on here and runs just as hard.

    you can build one for that but not have it professionally done, only if you do it in your garage. but it def. can be done for that. keep in mind shortblock not all gaskets and stuff too. like I said I have to do this to mine and I have been doing alot of researching and have come across a average price of about 5000 total done by a shop.

    true but for how long? with the luck I have on buying performance cars, i would of bought this car and it would of blew up the next week. Not saying anything bad about the car just my luck sucks a big one. I tried letting my friend who is in the market know but he wants a 03 cobra and is dead set on it so no go.

    Good luck, I have been thinking getting back into my old car (96 cobra) which I loved. I would love to twin turbo one.

    With that attitude, you could say that about ANY car you buy. My 03 Cobra needed a rebuild with 154 miles on it, had a factory defect and ford brought a new motor out for me.
