Review of the 1997 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Looks great, handles well, very comfortable for a sports car.

  • Cons

    Still gets its butt whipped by the 5.7-liter Camaro and Firebird twins.

  • What's New for 1997

    After last year's significant underhood upgrade, the SVT folks saw no reason to make changes to the Cobra for this year.

Still perfect after all these

I bought my Cobra convertible new and, outside of a fresh paint job, the only expenditures beyond scheduled maintenance have been tires, battery, and spark plug wires. It looks great, sounds great, rides great, makes me feel great. My best all-time automotive investment in which I plan to be buried (close by, at least).

This is just an overall great car. I've owned my Pacific Green Cobra since it was new in '97. It's great! Got enough HP to have some fun and yet the fuel economy isn't bad. Great donor car for Shelby kit cars too!
