The Ford Mustang Cobra is the quintessential muscle car. It stands out as one of the best-looking vehicles on the road. The Cobra has always represented the next step from joyriding to the thrill of the race as you whip around corners with tight handling at blazing speeds. With different lines of Cobras over the years, it’s easy to think that the Mustang Cobra has always been with us. However, there were years when this king of the road skipped a new model or retired early to address concerns with overall Mustang production. As the Cobra has always been the pinnacle of performance, the SVT legacy with more powerful engines, handling upgrades and design cues, blossomed again for a fourth generation beginning in 1994.
Production numbers show only 760 1995 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra two-door coupes were ordered like this one, in black clear coat with a black leather interior. This example is one of the lowest-mileage Cobras in existence, showing just 105 actual miles on the odometer and literally still “in the wrapper.” This collectible and desirable high-performance Mustang Cobra has existed almost 25 years without the removal of all plastic protecting the interior from the dealer. Never dealer-prepped, it represents a stunning and remarkable time capsule, with all documents and property meticulously preserved just like the day it was delivered. The original MSRP, still on the passenger window, shows this Cobra came with the Preferred Equipment Package (speed control, rear window defroster, air conditioning and floor mats), keyless remote, upgraded Mach 460 AM/FM stereo cassette, compact disc player and leather surface sport bucket seats. A framed copy of dealer invoice and Window Sticker, manuals, books, copy of original purchase contract and title, and two binders summarizing all the provenance from new will all be given to the next owner.
