Question value of stang v6 with cobra extras?

Hi!
Need your help on a 2000 v6 and what it's worth it.
Seller wants $5.300 for it.

Mileage is 80.500 miles

Things done by the owner:
- cobra sport suspension
- cobra brake system
- cobra rims
- cobra tail lights
- gimbal & rear suspension from a GT 8.8" rear end
- dual exhaust

Are the cobra lights really that rare and are the ones pictured real ones? I can't make them out as I'm totally new to that!

i wouldnt pay that much for a v6 but that is one clean sixxer. and it had alot of good upgrades done to it. and Yes those are real 99-01 cobra tail lights. they only came on the 99-01 cobra models and that was it. try getting him lower though first cuz its just a sixxer.

$5300 sounds like a good deal! Offer 4500 and see if you can steal it for 5. The taillights are legit the suspension I'm a bit iffy on. It looks too high. If all of that is true it's a steal.

My sixxers worth $5 easy. And it has 117k on the odometer. I guess it just depends where you live.

What I wanna know is what's a Cobra sport suspension? If it's got Cobra springs then what year Cobra? The 99-04 Cobras all came with IRS and you can't install those springs on a SRA car.

I have no idea, the owner told me it is a cobra sport suspension. Anyone who can tell us if it's easily changeable with the stang suspension?

Where I live, just a regular v6 with no miss that's clean is 5k with 110k+ miles. So for me, yeah that's an awesome deal. And everything looks legit

it doesnt look it has any kind of drop. looks pretty stock height. and yes u can change up the suspension anyway u want to. the 99-04 cobras came with an IRS rear end and that car doesnt have it. its got the cobra brakes though from what i see. but as far as springs probably not. but u can always just change to a better aftermarket springs

Well I haven't found anything about Cobra sport springs on google, I would assume he doesn't know what he's talking about on that part. Could you possibly get him to send you some pictures of them?

no way it's a cobra suspension...looking at it's ride height i'll say stock springs or perhaps stock mid 90's cobra springs (could be what the owner means by cobra suspension). if that's the case i'd change those to either v6 or GT lowering springs asap because i can't imagine it feels all to safe riding so high.

now as for price...depends on location...what runs $3k on one side of the country may cost $7k on the other

driving a swaying boat down the interstate at 70+ when a cross wind hits never feels safe lol....give me something planted firmly to the road any day. of course if they are cobra springs as long as they are the stockers then they are linear...in which case they can be cut

What slo said about suspension. It looks as high as what my sixxer looked like. I think he's bluffing about suspension but it seems like a good deal, I would jump on it

It's recommended that you get an alignment after you're done. It's fairly easy to do, just take them out and cut off the desired amount of coils. I'm on cut Cobra springs myself and have had it on the alignment rack but don't have C/C plates to correct my camber (i'm only at -1*)

Depends on where you live. GTs arent but a thousand at most more than a v6 where I live. 5 is good for a clean one here

I guess..my sister has a sixer and I think they run like poop..no power, soft ride, boring as all he11 to drive..get a v8 who gives a sh1t if it has cobra lights or cobra brakes. Don't make the car any faster. Every penny you put into to it you won't get back. Get a v8 spend the extra money, You'll get more.

Nice!! God forbid I ever end up in Tennessee I'll let you know. I can fend off a mildly built S2000 on the road course so I'm definitely curious as to how well I could keep up with you.

I think the driver can be checked off..not so much the car with double the power and a decent suspension to start with.

The driver is a good driver lol...look I'm knocking v8s I had one remember. However slinging them around corners is nowhere near as fun as slinging a 3.8/3.9 around . And BTW you answered why he is at a disadvantage. His power on twisties means little to nothing except for the chance of spinning out so you are forced to take it slower. Why do you think one of the best mountain road cars ever had a whopping 80 HP from factory. Gotta love an ae86 lol. And wow I really got off the main topic with that rant ^_^
