    I believe the 93 came w/o tilt due to safety constraints that dealt with the airbag. If it had tilt and an airbag then the rationale was the bag could be redirected and not provide adequate safety in an accident.

    All 93's came without tilt due to the airbag. CC was indeed a cost savings measure, although the official reason was "CC shouldn't be on a performance car"...

    Funny you should mention that... they must have dropped my motor too, because it has the next vin digit up from mine same as my tranny.. so who has the car after mine or before mine? you got my drivetrain! either that or someone screwed up putting the vin's on the car.

    1993 Cobra Differences

    Hey, I've got a 93 Cobra, black with black interior. It's 100% original paint and it has a gold pony on the front and a gold "Ford" emblem on the back hatch.

    Were these "Gold" emblems a factory option or was this done at the dealership? I'm the third owner....a Doctor ordered it new.

    The cobra badges on the side are silver.

    I've never seen cobra with these gold emblems.

    Thanks for your help.

    Either dealer or owner installed. Was not a factory option.

    That's one heck of a list of cars in your sig.

    I was referring to the 93 model year. Will have to research more for 88.

    On top of the motor, just behind the lower intake. Almost impossible to see with the motor in the car and the intake in it.

    Why are some tail lights gray and some black?
