Okay...maybe he's desperate for money, or it's a fake snake, or somethings wrong with it...I don't know. But I've never seen an 03/04 cobra under $17,000. It's got 40,000 miles but the price shouldn't be that low. If it was okay and if I had the money then I'd go get it.

Very shady looking posting. Spelling fails galore and overestimated hp.

Re: 2003 Cobra underpriced?

Sometimes dealers will sell cars and claim they have more than what really do.This could be a salesperson posting a ad on CL to draw buyers in hence the gas pump pic but I doubt it because of the price.

Re: 2003 Cobra underpriced?

when i was looking for my mustang i used craigslist and the first one i looked at was at a dealer and the guy told me he sold it right befor i got there. but he told me to look at the mustang he had there that wasnt even close to the one i wanted to buy. but i had called just an hour before and he said that he still had it, and on top of that i said i wanted to see the car even though it was sold and he said that they took the car with them, but it was a sunday and that would have been impossible to have paid it in full and take it. then a few month later i found out that the guy was losing his dealers lisence becasue of the fake adds

Wow. He could have more mods done that he didn't list, but that's still a low price.

Re: 2003 Cobra underpriced?

I sent them an e-mail

It's likely a scam.....seller is probably "stationed over seas, I will send money order, and it will ship with e-bay shipping"....

But it's worth asking. If it's actually that cheap, I'll buy it.

Meh...bunch of fake stuff in the add. You can find them for that price if you shop around...

Know of a 35k mile car that sold for 17,500 here recently.

Re: 2003 Cobra underpriced?

I wish banks weren't so tight on loans....damn credit crunch. It makes it hard to justify getting a loan for an 03 or 04 anything.

I think it really depends on who you're dealing with. The credit union I go through and my family has gone through for 30 years has no problem issuing a loan for an older vehicle as long as the value is there. I asked about an 01 Lightning a while back and my loan agent said that the age isn't priority one, it's more or less dependent on the vehicle's worth and that the loan amount being handed out is under the value.

If you've ever been in a vehicle after the airbags blew...that smell literally never leaves the car. I tried everything and it still stuck around on those hot summer days.
