    Without crowding the marketplace with another ridiculous "Feeler" thread I was wondering what to set my car at. I was thinking of asking between $21.5k-$23k. Local Cobras on autotrader are anywhere from 17.5-23.5 with convertibles and yellow cars towards the bottom.

    2003 Ford Mustang Cobra
    -73k miles on the chassis
    -1200 miles on engine and rebuilt transmission
    -I purchased from the original owner about three years ago at 55k miles
    -One previous minor accident, scraped the rear driver side of my car at about 8mph, simply repainted, new wheel, and new tie rod. Have pics
    -Exterior 8/10, Interior 8/10


    -Engine:
    • Boss big bore 5.0 shortblock built at Modmax good for 1000hp
    • 9.2:1 Manley forged pistons
    • stock forged Manley rods with arp 2000 bolts
    • stock crank
    • remachined and inspected heads and valves
    • all ARP hardware
    • Posi ported Eaton, ported plenum and ported/matched accufab sbtb w/ 2.8/4lb pullies
    • Fluidyne heat exchanger
    • JLT ram air intake
    • pcv breathers

    -Fuel:
    • LP return fuel system using the dual Ford GT pumps with modified hat
    • 80lb injectors as I have an E85 tune as well as a 93 pump gas tune with SCT flash handheld

    -Driveline:
    • solid polyurethane motor mounts
    • Steeda IRS brace
    • 26 spline input with ProMotion blue-printed Hi-Clamp clutch with Fidanza aluminum flywheel and LP TOB
    • firewall adjuster and quadrant
    • Steeda lowering springs

    -Misc.
    • UPR o/r x-pipe with flowmaster 40-series mufflers, sounds perfect imo
    • Has a nitrous system fully installed but will not be tuned on spray, it was on the last setup.
    • Last setup w/ stock motor was posi port 2.8/4lb making 520/545 on 93. With the Boss bottom i'm expecting about 550 on 93 and 600-620 on E85, both with conservative tunes.
    • 8% tint, but passenger side has a crease in the middle and rear is bubbling
    • extended rear wheel studs

    That engine should facilitate getting a better than market price, assuming it is still in great shape.

    Nice car!

    I would value that over 23k as long as you have all the receipts and stuff.

    Awesome thanks for the great news. :rolling: I only wish I could be the one to throw a twin screw on top of this thing, tvs would make 750+ on E85

    Did a similar build and mine netted 538/560... However, I reused my Teksid block and 99 heads which had a full refresh. Everything else in regards to hp is comparable.

    To me the car should be worth $22k to $23k

    You sure you want to sell it? It's very nicely modded. I have to agree with Jimmy. Assuming your engine is in pristine condition and that it the build was top notch, you should get a premium.

    I would say that convertibles would be more towards the top not the bottom.
