This 1996 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra is the debut year for the
exceptionally more powerful 4.6-liter V8. So when you have a coupe
that's sleek, fast, distinct, and loaded, it makes for a desirable
collectible offered for a terrific price.
SVT and Cobra are some of the most desirable names in blue oval
performance, so when you have them on the same car, you know you've
got the right machine. The Laser Red Tinted CC Metallic factory
paint shows all the right signs of being the factory application,
and it has the high gloss style to highlight how the whole car has
seen good care over the decades. And the big polished presentation
is only heightened by the bright 17-inch SVT wheels. What is SVT?
That's Ford's Special Vehicle's Team. They are not only the ones
responsible for all the great design touches like the unique
fascia, hood scoops, and coiled snake badges, but they also
engineered this coupe to have the performance to back up its sporty
Step inside, and this Cobra gets to show you its dark side. The
combination of black leather with the red exterior is a timelessly
attractive combo. It's a well-kept total style. The Cobra got just
about every comfort and convenience option in the Mustang catalog
as standard equipment from the factory. The driver gets a great
performance package that includes white-faced analog gauges, a
leather-wrapped wheel, cruise control, a power seat, and a
five-speed shifter for the manual transmission. Plus, there's
cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless
entry, and the upgraded premium factory AM/FM/cassette stereo with
a separate CD player. This modern classic also lets you take
advantage of safety features like dual airbags and anti-lock
All-new for 1996, the DOHC 4.6-liter V8. This is the ideal motor
for terrific low-end power and plenty of muscle left in reserve to
get you well above triple-digit speeds. This new powerplant was a
significant leap over the already celebrated 5.0. That's why this
is a milestone classic, and it's nice to see this looking so stock.
There's a huge aftermarket to add even more power to the factory's
305 hp rating, but quite frankly, we're much more impressed with
how tidy the well-respected engine bay is. The five-speed manual
transmission snaps through the gears easily, and the factory
upgraded suspension delivers true performance car handling. Helping
corral all this performance pony is the power steering, massive
four-wheel disc brakes.

is the collectible Cobra that you'll also love to drive.
