1996 GT Cobra

What would be a fair price for a 1996 GT Cobra? I don't know the mileage but the paint is flaking off bad, a/c needs gassing up, seats are covered so they must be in bad shape, it has a 4.6L 5 speed and aftermarket wheels. That is all I can think of now. I think it may be a diamond in the rough but it could also become a money pit! What do you guys think?

That gt is worth about $2500 if it runs well. I would pay $1800

Thanks guys, I was thinking it probably wasn't a cobra too. The emblem doesn't look right for a Cobra. It may just be a GT. I haven't even gone to look at it yet, the seller is asking $2000 on our local swap-n-shop.

If they did not take care of the car watch out for the engine

the 1996-98 GT 4.6L's arn't that good, I think they actually pushed less power than the old 5.0 it replaced. If you want a 4.6 go with a 99 or newer.
If you like the 1994-98 body style go with a 1994-1995 GT.

actually the non pi 4.6 was an upgrade over a stock 5.0. yes stock for stock a non pi 4.6 has lest hp then a pi 4.6, but with a pi swap thanks to the compression difference it becomes a fair bit quicker then a stock 99-04.

as for the car in the picture i wouldn't pay more then 1700 cash if it's engine and trans are in good shape.

I don't know what the numbers for a stock fox body 5.0, but I do know that my 97 4.6 is faster than the fox, barely, but just a tick faster.

That would depend on what year of foxbody the later ones had 225hp, earlier ones had less I think 155 or 160.

i don't see how barely though...maybe they are bolt on. because i haven't lost to a stock fox yet at the track. sadly they handle bolt ons well so they can get quick with less effort. that being said i know non pi 4.6's are faster then me so it's no wonder you beat them.

This was a hypothetical race, in a hypothetical town, on a hypothetical road. And I have no clue what was done, we just pulled up to a hypothetical red light and let em loose. If you catch my drift. I was also shifting at 6 grand, and it's faster if I shift it at about 53-5500.

You mean you were hypothetically shifting at 6k?
