I didn't know that Aussies' cars are RHD. I always wondered what was up with the different models of cars you have down there. Right on for you guys getting the Mustang. Now maybe you can race them in one of those V8 super car races you like to have down there.

I would love nothing more than to see mustangs in the v8 supercar rounds, and it may happen because the ford falcon ceases production in 2016; I can't see ford racing a Mondeo :-@

Didn't they exclusively make the cobra with the ugly front bumper in Australia exclusively in 02? Or was it not RHD?

Correct. RHD, additional lights and sidemarkers, and RHD.

True, but then again I think only about 200 were made so I would keep it original and sell for tens of thousands in about 30 years

The extra lights in the front bumper is for high beam. The standard headlight reflectors were adjusted for low beam only. The reason; for LHD vehicles when headlights are on full there is a flood of light high on the right hand side, in Australia it has to be on the left side. Ugly you say! Maybe, but the Mustang here is almost a mythical beat and much sought after. I am one of the lucky few to own one

Holy...... I had no idea! The cockpit picture I got off google is yours! Lol!! You are a lucky dog you. How much is that mythical cobra worth and how much did you get it for if you don't mind me asking? You are one of less than 100!!

The 2002 Cobra coupe sold new in Australia for $89000. I purchased mine for $39400 in 2007. I have seen them recently for around $31000. My wheels are stock silver Cobra wheels.

Are your Aussie dollars the same as us dollars?

$39400 Aussie is $35066 USD
$31000 Aussie is $27590 USD

I googled it that's still worth it to me, that's a super rare car. I wonder if there are any in the states. I beat some one over here would pay GOOD money for one of those.

Oh mannnnnn...... I would kill for one! People would pay a huge sum of money for one here in the states but they're just not well known or sought after. But as soon as people know they exist the price will skyrocket.
