2003 Cobra 86,xxx miles. Bone stock.

The Bad: bumpers need repaint the have spider cracks - Tail pipes are off (one sticks out father then the other) - Car was smoked in burn hole in the back seat - Suede on the seats wasn't cleaned properly and now looks like a fur coat.


The Good- Bone stock, Mechanically sound, New Clutch, New Tires, Got them down to 13,500.

With the bumpers repainted and a good buff I'd say you got yourself a nice deal.

that could end up being a good deal........it looks like it wasn't de-modded and sold. Typically when that happens things like the pulley cover, hood blanket and intake aren't put back on.

good luck

The Carfax is clean. The only thing that caught my eye under the hood was the pulley guard had a few chips and rust spots on it.

I must say that is a bit odd that the stock pipes are off like that. My AM pipes did the same thing, never to that degree but off maybe a hair. It's pretty much an easy fix. Besides the pics have you seen this in person. I personally would rather buy a lower mileage cobra.

I saw that in Craigslist. Not a bad deal, if you can get that for $13,000 that's even better. I don't don't what's your budget, but there's a mystic in Temecula for $27k. Just a thought.

Smoked in?? NO WAY. i had a mustang that was smoked in a few years ago. I had a pro shop to a scent removal process on the car. It helped a lot but on hot days you could still smell it. I will NEVER purchase a car that had been smoked in again.

Ok the only thing I can see that's been modified is a steeda adjustable clutch cable has been installed.

Also get a coupe and those clutch cable suck balls.

Ya I have read horrible things about those clutch cables.

If I was 22 and still racing a lot I would get a coupe hands down but with a wife who loves verts,two kids and living in southern California the vert is the way to go.:-D

You sound exactly like me two years ago. My wife liked a vert and my kids too. But as you can see the vert got the boot. prepare to drive in car that feel like its made of rubber and wood. Subframes didn't even help much.
