The original GT500's also had Cobra emblems on them, that's why.
What about the guy running around saying he has a 1992 Mustang Cobra Convertible??? Is that a real Cobra??? LOL
Here's a new question: a v6/GT with all correct Cobra body parts, interior, drivetrain, and suspension, is it a Cobra???
I do agree with you, but let's not forget this man also put his name on a K-car
I don't think anyone here would call that a Shelby, nor would it be the 1st thing to pop into ones mind when thinking of Shelby.
If your follow up reply is that it doesn't say cobra anywhere on the car, then I guess it isn't a mustang either since that isn't found on the car.
That further proves my point, they were called cobras also (at least some of the models were). That's where the whole cobra naming scheme started from.
To further stir the pot, if anything, the 93-04 cobras weren't "true" cobras since it originated with the shelby cars.
