Am I making the right decisions?

I'm looking at Cobras for sell. I'm stuck between and '01 and '99. I like the 320hp of both and the '99 is cheaper and if I could find one with less miles, I would think that would be the obvious choice. But what I don't like is on the back is says "Mustang" instead of "Cobra" and that's the deciding factor for me. I would spend a couple extra Ks just to have "Cobra" on the back. Is it really that big of a deal or am I just being stupid? What else should I take into consideration when choosing between the '99 and '01 models? Thanks in advance.

Biggest giveaway that its a real cobra besides the vin #, is the 4 valve motor and the IRS.

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.

I personally like the 01-04, the older ones are too round for my taste lol, that's why i don't really dig the 05-09 mustang either.

Thanks. In the end I'll most likely be getting the '01

I wanted to punch ppl like you in the throat when I had my 95 Cobra that came with a "Mustang" bumper from the factory. So do 99s.

"Hey man is that a REAL Cobra???"
