Yeah, that's a stock Cobra. There isn't even a turbo on it, maybe worth $8,000, maybe

There's no such thing as a special ordered turbo, factory never offered it. The guy is either an idiot or trying to scam someone

It does look super clean. If its in near mint condition I would value it around 10k. It is not turbocharged. Looks stock

I was looking this up and I was right they don't offer it for a mustang . If he did have the turbo on it he would have all the paper work as tuning and dynos to prove it . This guy is bull.

I wanna know where the hell the turbo would be hiding because you would be able to see something that has to do with a turbo from the engine pics he did show

When I first looked at the description, I was thinking maybe one of his kids put it on Autotrader for him, description and all. Did you call and talk to them? If so, and he confirmed the "turbo", pretty lame.

Remember the Turbo 4 mustang??

And also, the Turbo doesn't need to be in the engine bay, it could be a rear mount Turbo. But I highly doubt there is one in there lol

No, I think what he is thinking he is going to try and get over on someone that doesnt know much about cobra and he prolly saw that the 03-04 cobras were SUPERCHARGED, so he is trying to make a big quick buck.

HAHAHA so do it, and post pictures or a video is he starts talking crazy. "Yea, it has a turbo on it but its actually inside the Muffler, its the new type." Haha if I get home in time im going to do the same thing but im going to ride up in my 98 cobra that looks just like this color and all....

Then, im going to check out that 97 one I posted about thats in Millington they tried to tell me it was stock and not wrecked.

Haha, naw I cant call him cuz im in the middle east and different time but I emailed him and this is the reponse I got.

I am on vacation bug when I get back I will take a better shot of the engine and
post it. The engine is designed by Fords Special Vehicle Team.


oh wow, he can read the label on the engine. He didnt really answer my question about the turbo.

Yeah, we had one of those but instead of it being SVT is was SVO. I think it even had a switch you could push for certain octane of gas? I cant remember is been years since we had it. Im not saying its not turbo, but if it is its not stock/or factory addition to the car.

I saw another one on there a month ago that was a 01 cobra with 14k miles and it had a vortec supercharger on it and the guy tried to tell me it was stock and from the factory that way and he wanted 30,000 for it. So I emailed him and played along and then offered him 14K cash in hand for it he told me I was crazy. Oh did that open a different side of me. Long story short I explained to him that 01's didnt not come charged from the factory esp with a vortec, I even emailed him proof. Then, I was like dude I can go get a 03 cobra thats stock supercharged with 24K miles for 21,000. I was like actually its the ad right above yours lol, never heard back from him.

Re: this is crazy

haha it is stock....I was bored and looking up 96-98 cobras and these people think these are some type of gold mine cuz they are selling them like 5 k -10K over then they are worth or list price with NADA or KB. I found one that was not a bad buy but it need some TLC time with the inside and he wanted 3700, the OD stopped at 37000 miles so who knows how many miles are on it actually. The seller even said he has no idea how many miles on it but the outside isnt too bad, def not a stock color.

I don't know... It seems like the car was really well taken care of. And it's completely stock. If it really has less then 11k miles on it, I'd have to assume he's completely clueless. I'll bet if someone asked him to point to the "Turbo Charger" he'd point to the upper intake manifold.

Well you do have a point there but I"m sure he knows he cant get no 28 grand for that. If he is still has it, which im sure he will for that price, im going to go check it out when I come home just to see if the guy is a idiot or not.
