97 cobra

Saw a 97 cobra for 6500 pretty nice 100,000 miles has new clutch, short throw shift kit, C.A.I, magna flow exhaust and is pretty decent condition is this good project car? Looking for something to do some engine work on and learn how to drive stick better before my 2012 comes in.

Re: 97 cobra

they are nice cars if taken care of (as with anything). They have a pretty good reputation and should be a fun car to own. Check for oil leaks, some have them~

Re: 97 cobra

some times the tension adjusters on the cam gears give out and cause a tick or worse... but its not something you can just check on due to its behind the front cover~ I would just do the normal stuff maybe look into running some seafoam through it etc.
