Mustang's third body style emerges. The success of the original Mustang established the brand as the coming of age vehicle for America. Timing was everything and Ford hit a home run when they revealed the Mustang to the public on April 17, 1964.
The Shelby GT350 wasn't the only high-performance Mustang available if you wanted a fast pony.
Classic Car Overview
If you want a Mustang Cobra, this is the one to own. This 2001 coupe comes with fully independent suspension, five-speed transmission, and the 32-valve DOHC 4.6-liter V8 under the hood. And with a quality presentation on this well-respected Mustang, its amazing a total package like this can also be so affordable. Those who know Mustang Cobras, also know that this generation is pivotal. This is when Fords Special Vehicle Team (SVT) got to do everything theyve always wanted to put on a Mustang. Understanding this significance must be why this coupe has been kept so well. It has spent its life thus far as a Florida car, and since the odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage, it would mean averaging under 1,300 miles annually. The Laser Red paint shows the right signs of being the factory application, and it has a vibrant finish that loves to show the sporty style. The Cobra got special pieces, like the front air dam, full-width rear spoiler, snake-bitten badges, and a special domed hood. And those polished 17-inch SVT alloy wheels have an awesome shine and an aggressive style. Theres a premium feeling throughout the interior. For you, it starts with those supremely comfortable seats. The performance buckets up front are deeply bolstered and yours power adjusts. They are trimmed in dark charcoal leather with a soft suede-like insert and Cobra stitching. White-faced analog gauges, a leather-wrapped wheel, a tilt column, power steering, and a perfectly-placed stick shift were also all part of the performance package for the driver. Plus, cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, keyless entry, dual airbags, cruise control, and the factory AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo will keep everyone happy. Its a very cool and highly stock style. In fact, the only upgrade you may even notice in this loaded and preserved coupe is the deep tint on the windows. The engine bay is filled with proper V8 power. It looks exceptionally fresh, right down to the tag that tells you who built this special SVT motor. The DOHC 4.6-liter V8 is a thoroughly modern powerhouse that has created a whole new generation of Mustang fans. The 32-valve setup means plenty of low-end power to get off the line, and the factory-rated 320 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque mean theres still power on tap when passing triple-digit speeds. You have complete control over this stout powerplant thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. And speaking of control, this is the only fourth-gen Mustangs that came from the factory with a fully independent rear suspension. Massive four-wheel disc brakes with ABS were also part of the Cobra package, and so its a powerful pony car with confident moves. A well-respected car also means good paperwork. Thats why this comes with the owners manual packet, maintenance records, and its SVT certificate. Style, power, and substance are all coming together on this modern classic. So you know you dont want to miss it while its still so affordable. Call today!!!
