    First of all i copied and edited what the previous owner had posted, some things are a little different but not much.

    NEW ASKING PRICE 10,700. IT NEEDS TO GO!!
    Im asking $11,000 for the car, reason for selling is my financial situation is different than before, the cars runs great, minor driveshaft rub that comes and goes, but only when its hammered, the motors torque pushes the drivesshaft up a very little bit which rubs where the two body parts come together, all it needs is the be cut out with a sawzall and there won't be any other problems.

    Also i might add that the price will more than likely be going up in spring or earlier because this cars worth overalll a lot more than im asking...

    It put down 503hp/507tq to the wheels. . The body has about 90k on it and the motor has roughly 22k on it. Clean title. I have a 4" binder with the whole build of the motor/reciepts. And yes it is a real Cobra.

    I am very interested in this car

    Please PM me your phone # as soon as you can

    Do you still have the 03 wheels, would you sell with them rather than the 18" Saleens??

    Yes, it has a teksid block with all the terminator parts. If you haven't noticed a lot of guys with terminators who built their motors use the teksid blocks. Reason being is they're strong and a lot lighter than the cast iron blocks found in 03/04s. The motor in this car is roughly 85lbs lighter than a stock terminator motor.

    Maybe it is just me, but that T-45 is the only thing that worries me about this car

    seller says it was rebuilt, and it has handled the power for like 20k+ miles

    any comments guys?

    I am very interested in this car, but anyone i mention it to says they would worry about the T-45

    I was just asking cause some people just swap the motor out of an 03/04 just making sure there was no confusion.. its just a forged teksid motor... anyways good luck with the sale.

    I was worried about that too when I first bought the car but it has held up very good. Plus at the price hes selling it at, it would not be that big of a deal to buy a t56.

    +1 The trans held up perect for me.
