I found an 03 cobra shell?

Friend of mine has an 03 cobra shell. No engine or trans and he's trying to sell for 1600. I'm thinking about buying it and storing it for about 40 years than it might be worth a pretty penny. What do y'all think?

He said most of the parts have been taken off and swapped but he said it has a clear title and all the vins on the car match the title

check the vin and everything before u buy it. Cause from the pic I doubt it's a cobra, the hood, no cobra spoiler, also the side mirrors seem to be plastic, also the side scoops

I know he just told me he's positive it's a true cobra he said he ran the vin before he bought it. Would the title not say its a cobra as well?

Idk about the title stuff man. I'd run the vin just to be sure lol. I mean what if u end up buying it without checking and it turns out to be a base? Your going to have a base model mustang that is nothing but yard decoration

Just simply check the vin number. It should read 1FALP47V for a cobra coupe 4v

All mustangs have 1FALP in vin

Here's the decode

40-coupe v6
42-coupe gt
44-convertible v6
45-convertible gt
47-coupe cobra
46-convertible cobra

That is awesome knowledge. Now if we could ever find it again after this, we will be in good shape.

so what if its a 48? then what? I am kinda in the same boat as this guy, I have located a Cobra body that has all the goodies taken off...
and I see 4 digits that people are calling the cobra number, would that be the last four digits or what exactly?
how many cobras were made in 03 or 04?

Looks like a normal mustang to me. Even if it was an 03 Cobra before, it doesn't have any of those parts anymore.
