Re: cobra vs mach 1
about 100 hp, lol...probably night and day is more appropriate. The mach 1's were rated at 305hp while the the cobra's were underrated at 390.
Rwhp is probably 270 for the Mach 1, about 400ish for the cobra (~425) crank.
Plus, the cobra is a better platform and has much more potential - 6spd, forged internals, already supercharged, a few quick mods and you'll be close to 500 hp.
A decent cobra can be had for 17-20+k with 20-40k miles. I wouldn't buy one with over 40,000 miles personally. Mach 1's can go for 13-18k depending on miles of course.
Should also consider, an oxford white Mach 1 with the auto tranny is about the only rare Mach 1, so don't let some fool try and screw ya because he thinks his torch red manual Mach 1 is gold, they're a dime a dozen, and often overpriced.
