The more I read about the 94/95 Cobra the more I would like to have one too, you can make them pretty damn quick.

Now that sounds like fun; building a pushrod SN-95.


Adventure till you drop.

Why if I get another 94-98 it is going to be a pushrod. There are a metric assload of modular 96-04s running around. Very few nice 94/95s. I'd love to find a 95 Cobra hardtop convertible.

I have to admit I want the R. Then followed by a coupe Cobra and GTS as third.

A mint condition R is going to run like $40k+. And is not fast at all and would make a horrific driver.

Pretty much for a Mustang guy with $$$ to put on display and that's all its good for.

There were only 500 hardtop convertible Cobras made. There were also 1 or 2 hardtop GTs made and at least 1 V6. THOSE would be the super rare ones although I know for a fact one of the hardtop GTs is owned by a complete idiot. Or at least was a few years ago...

Fully aware of their value. They'd still be my pick. Saw one for sale for 19k with 40k miles very tempting.

There are two white 95 Cobras I know of that are actually both about 4 hours from me and the owners have floated them out in the $10-$12k range a few times with no takers. Both have under 35k miles and both are garage kept. I have both their usernames saved and check the pushrod classifieds on the corral and svtp from time to time to see if they are listed or if anything else is.

I would love another white with black leather 95 Cobra and this time do it right.

Supercharger and fuel system, MM CC plates/coilovers and a UPR K, TA/PHB or 5 link out back and then replace the T-5 with an A5 whenever it blows up. Done.

But first I have to get the car in my sig going and stop talking **** on these forums lmao.

I almost went to look at a green 95 GT with full mm suspension, an IRS, a complete Bullitt interior swap and all the bolt ons for $6k. Had over 100k on the body and a stock jy pullout 5.0 in it tho.

And out of all those I posted... The first and third ones would interest me the most. The third one has a ton of red flags and would not recommend for anyone wanting one that would be reliable. If you are comfortable pulling the motor completely out to work on it then it might be a good buy. If I was buying one I'd probably go over the first one with a real fine tooth comb and if it checked out get that. Its already got the charcoal carpet and seats done, the rest is easy to swap to charcoal to complete the look. It really looks like its just visible bolt ons but there can still be surprises like hacked wiring or holes drilled in random spots etc...

Here's a GTS. It looks really nice.

Only thing I don't like besides the price is its a rebuild. Unfortunately.

Anyone who puts E3 plugs in a vehicle AND lists it as a mod is a goddamn idiot and I would not trust the car to be sound.

You could put 275/40/17 on it but it'll handle like ***. The 94/95 Cobra used 255/45/17 which is as big as I'd go.

My 97 cobra came with 245/45/17's and I switched to the R wheels that were 17x8, then went with 17x9 in front and 17x10 in the rear. I used 255/45/17's in the front and 275/45/17's in the rear. Ran the SSC with Goodyear Eagles ...back in 1999. It handled very well at 130+.
My 97 Cobra was lowered with Eibach Sportlines and Steeda UCA's and LCA's along with a weld-in Panhard and LCA relocation brackets.The picture is in my garage or pictures.
