99 cobras say mustang, not cobra. I know there is also other previous Sn95 years that say mustang as well. This is a common thing for people to think that because it doesn't say cobra, that its not a cobra.
I've been in your boat before OP, I've debated if i was going to pick up a 99 or an 01 prior to purchasing my current GT. For some reason, the 01's are more expensive. If you can get a 99 for a good deal, i would do it. It wouldn't cost more than a few hundred bucks for a cobra rear bumper. Problem is, around here, people want 12-13k for an 01 with 90-115k miles. It's nuts.
