I have been on the forum for a long time, mainly posting about my 03 GT that I have done a ton of mods to. My Mustang collection has grown since and yesterday I finally got a 97 Cobra!

Black coupe with black interior in great condition other than a hurt engine and a broken passenger side mirror.
Price was reasonable so I just had to buy it!
Better pics to follow.

Nice find. Looks just like mine minus the black Saleens. I remember you from Mighty Mustangs.net, I also was a member there whatever happened to that site?

What is wrong with the engine?

Looks good. I always look at those years wanting to pull the trigger. That view is great too. Looking forward to more pics.

the previous owner had a KB supercharger on it, car ran until he started to take it apart for a first analysis. Low compression on some cylinders. Apparently it kept blowing valve cover gaskets under boost. He had too many projects and let this one go to a good home.

I just want it back up running without supercharger, so if anyone wants a KB, let me know.
I wish I could find a ready to drop in shortblock to get it back up running quickly.

the site was taken down a long time ago unfortunately. Markus the owner of the site still has the domain but never put it back up. I could imagine that costs got out of hand to run it.

Congratulations, Ana! So do you still own all 4 of the Mustangs in your signature. If so, yeah, your Mustang collection is definitely growing. I hope you get the engine gremlins resolved as quickly and as inexpensively as possible. Keep us posted.

Thank you. Yes, I own all 4 of them and hope I will never need to sell one. They are my babies.
Here is a pic of the other Mustangs:

You should go big bore stroker.

This made my day! :D (I'm missing a ROFL smiley!)
Glad to be back on here. I have been through so many setups and ideas with my blue car it's crazy.

Those are really nice. Awesome that you own all 4! And nice that you've returned to SVTP. Now don't be a stranger! LOL.

the very cool part of now having two SN95 cars is that stuff on the shelf leftover from the blue wannabe racecar fits the Cobra.
Set of Steeda swaybars freshly powdercoated and Carbondriven goodies are already waiting to be installed.
