1994 Ford Mustang Cobra Convertible Pace Car
Only 3 times in the long history of the "Greatest Spectacle In
Racing" the Indianapolis 500, has there been a Ford Mustang acting
as the official pace car: 1964, 1979, and 1994. Each of these years
Ford capitalized on this event by building tributes, and this time
is doing so in a very limited edition of 1,000. Each an identical
Rio Red, everything is standard, and all convertibles, these Cobras
have no decals (although included) but a single Indy 500-winged
emblem on its decklid.
For consignment, a 19,899 verified actual mile '94 Mustang Pace
Car, confirmed, and in very nice condition. Number 569 of 1,000,
fully functional, wearing Cobra R wheels but including the original
17" wheels and tires and has its unused Pace Car Decal kit as well
as SVT certificate. Folks it does not get much better than
Rio Red with the winged Indianapolis logo adorning the deck lid,
the Cobra Snake logo on the fenders and Saddle canvas convertible
top. Styling cues from yore are noted with the hockey stick cove on
sides ending at the front of the rear quarter panel. A Cobra
specific rear spoiler is attached, and a foursome of 17-inch
polished Cobra R alloy wheels are seen, (as mentioned earlier, the
original wheels with tires mounted on them are included with the
purchase). Round fog lamps unique to this Cobra are embedded into
the front fascia. All self-adhesive decals have never been applied
and are included as well as the boot for the convertible top.
Stitched Saddle leather buckets flank a curvaceous center console
which undulates its way up to a two-tone black and tan dash. Inset
are white field gauges with black markings, and on the odometer is
the confirmed 19,899 original miles. Black threaded embroidered
Indianapolis logos are at the top of each tall bucket. A small but
comfortable 2 plus 2 style back seat in stitched leather as well
stretches from door to door. The gearshift boot and knob are
stitched black leather. Cobra carpet floor mats which have seen
very few feet on them, are installed in the front. A CD player and
an AM/FM Radio /Cassette Player are in the front console and pump
out beautiful sound from the MACH speaker sound system.
An SVT (Special Vehicle Team) engineered GT-40 headed 5.0 Liter V8
sits in the factory condition engine bay. A cold air intake has
been added to boost the ponies just a bit and attached on the back
is a Borg-Warner T5 5-speed manual transmission, which puts power
back to a 3.08:1 TracLok rear end. All looking factory fresh down
to the rubber boot over the distributor.
4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes are on all four corners, and the
unibody frame, floor pans and rockers are solid and like new and
the untreated components show some surface rust growing on these
surfaces. Evidence that this car was garaged and has seen some road
time. The underside is very clean and definitely invasive rust
free. Providing the slithering ride is an independent coil sprung
front suspension and in the back a 4-link system with coil springs.
The factory headers and dual exhaust is on for your auditory
In a word very nice, in 2 words smooth and powerful, and in 3 words
comfortable, good handling, awesome! No issues we noted were on our
drive, which we kept short as to preserve the low mileage.
Having a special edition car bought to be enjoyed but well cared
for and garaged all that time, then finally putting it out there is
definitely to the potential buyer's benefit. Low production
numbers, full documentation, and a snake make this a somewhat rare
car. Come in and have a look at the celebratory Pace Car edition of
America's favorite car.
