“New-Age technology, old-fashioned performance” – MotorTrend, 1995
Presenting a spectacular 1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra in fetching Laser Red. Showing 88,265 miles, the all-aluminum, hand built 4.6L v-8 retains its original Ford Special Vehicle Teams builder's tag. Fords foray into overhead cam engines would set the stage for decades to come. Modern performance Mustangs have this car to thank for their success. Live out your mod-motor RADwood dreams today!
The exterior – Laser Red was the second most popular color choice in 1998 replacing 1997's Rio Red. Paint shines well and overall body presents with no dents or major flaws. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Two minor accidents are reported on the Carfax and were repaired, leaving no lasting signs of damage. All glass and light housings are clear and free of cracks. Correct Cobra-specific hood is free of blemishes and all plastic is uncracked. Both sinister snake emblems are present on the fenders, as well as the SVT trunk badge, and the car wears the correct Cobra rear bumper. Cobra R wheels are wrapped in 275/40/17s in front and meaty 315-35/17s out back.
The interior – Black leather presents throughout the cabin. Well-bolstered front bucket seats show some wear but are free of tears and major cracks. Black carpet is free of rips, and interior plastics and dash are crack-free. A four-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel frames easy to read white-faced gauges. Factory CD player is enhanced by a trunk mounted Bazooka subwoofer. Two sets of keys with fobs are included. (Please view the close-up photography in the gallery to assess the condition of the SVT Cobra's interior surfaces.)
Under the hood – 305 thundering horsepower are barely contained within the hand-built 4.6-liter modular engine. Four valves per cylinder, four overhead cams, and all aluminum construction made it one of Fords most advanced engines to date. Retaining the original tag with builders' names engraved, it is all original, save an aftermarket air filter.
