Re: Thinking of selling 97 GT for 96-98 Cobra
I'd keep the miles under 100k for those cars. Just a personal opinion. Even though the engine may be running decent at 100k or more, 100k miles is still 100k miles..typical wear and tear has taken its toll and components have worn and deteriorated. I'd plan on new plugs, gaskets, filters, belts, definitely check for leaks and seals at a minimum. I think I'm safe saying a Cobra at 100k miles has seen its fair share of abuse and "spirited" driving. There could be more significant problems at bay that you aren't aware of.
Not saying that's not possible with a low mileage car, but it's more likely on a higher mileage car imo. Plus those 4v's are more expensive to repair than the 2v's.
I guess it really comes down to what you can afford or are willing to spend.
A few years ago a guy around here picked up a 96 cobra with ~13k miles for 13.5k while same year cobras with 4 times the miles were listed at +15k, so it all depends on what you find and can afford.
