For Sale: 1997 Ford Mustang in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This is the Cobra you want to get your hands on right now. The 1997 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra is from the era of big power with the 4.6-liter V8, and they made more than double the number of coupes this year as convertibles. So it's amazing this loaded and highly original triple-black package is available for such an obtainable price.

The Cobra name should already make you weak in the knees, but take a moment to check out the whole package. This is a factory triple-black car (paint, roof, and interior), and that has always proven to be quite special on the collector market. The whole package is highly original, and the car has only averaged about 3,200 miles annually. So you have the right mix of a good shine and well-respected panels, but this is also a car that won't make you nervous to enjoy out on the road. As a true Cobra, this is made to be a meaner Mustang. You really see it in the unique fascia, hood scoops, spoiler, and coiled snake badges. Plus, some brightwork shows off the performance side, too, including those large dual exhaust tips.

The black interior has the look of good care. After all, this modern classic is approaching the half-century mark, and the leather on the driver's seat has worn in like a saddle as opposed to wearing out. Your seat also power adjusts to the ideal driving position, and the white-faced analog gauges are pure sports car cool. Part of a true driver's car feeling also comes from a long list of desirable features. This came loaded directly from Ford with power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, dual airbags, and the premium factory AM/FM/cassette stereo with a separate CD. Best of all, the power windows and power convertible top mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And the cold-blowing air conditioning keeps you comfortable even with the top down in the summertime.

Under the hood is the performance-bred V8. You'll appreciate classic details like the SVT builder tag, and there's also upgraded performance with a BBK cold air intake. The fuel-injected DOHC 4.6-liter motor has the kind of versatile powerband that made this car an instant classic. The 32-valve setup gives this a terrific bottom-end, and the V8 grunt makes it feel like it could pull forever. The five-speed manual transmission snaps through the gears easily, and the factory upgraded the chassis to make it worthy of the Cobra name. Helping corral all this performance is the power steering, massive four-wheel power disc brakes, ABS, and grippy BF Goodrich performance tires.

Complete with the owner's manual packet, this is the SVT Cobra that has the best colors, true power, and an unbeatable price. So if you're looking for a great modern classic that was built to be enjoyed, call today!
