Yeah it's a little steep. It's a 10th anniversary but still doesn't justify the price with over 100k. You should be able to find a cobra in the 65-80k range for that price.

The first cobra you posted was a terminator. On the 03-04 cobra models they had a supercharged 4.6. The 01 came with the n/a 4.6 32valve dohc motor. (still a great motor) similar to the motor in my Mach 1. Going to come down to preference and possibly budget. The 01 looks like a great car all stock so you can have plenty of room for your own modifications.

Re: Need some advice

The first one is prob the better of them as far as performance goes. I really like the first one think offering 14k be a good starting spot or little less?

Definitely. The 03-04's are very stout and respond to mods well. You won't be disappointed, I would start in the 13 range and see how it goes. Blue books around 14.5

I believe they were rated 390 or so from ford. But that was a low ball lol. With a pulley swap, exhaust and tuner you can prob get around 450rwhp. To get an idea so to svtperformance (forum website) look at some of the mod lists on the signatures.

Any terminator owners on here wanna post some hp/tq numbers??

Re: Need some advice

Stock HP on Terminators is 390whp! I would not compare 01 cobras to Terminators, different level all together! Dealer prices will always be higher and because that paticular one was a 10th An. edition. You will be very happy with a Terminator, I can promise you that!

Just to give you an idea. Here is a 10th An. with 71K miles for well over $20K. terminators hold their value!!!!!
2003 Mustang SVT Cobra 10th Anniversary

I would offer this guy $16,500 for this lower mile Cobra terminators !

Re: Need some advice

That Terminator I was looking at offering 13k would be a real low ball right. I should expect to pay 15k drusmith?

Your can always increase your offer, it's so not easy to lower it... Never know if you don't try

And yes obviously the 01/03 are different animals.
