1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe


Review

Have had his car since new. Mods started within 200 miles, springs, caster camber plates, flowmasters, etc. I've done everything to this car over the years and drive it a bit aggressively (3 speeding tickets). It was purchased to use as weekend driver/car show duty. Everything is chromed, polished, powder coated, painted/waxed and very clean. Old p600 procharger (with inner cooler), 75 shot NOS, DVD, Subs, upgraded stereo, race seats, no rear seats, Lambo doors, carbon fiber hood (same cobra style) interior done with real cobra snakeskin accents carbon fiber, polished billet, etc, etc, too much more to list. Bottom line never really had any problems with it, other than normal.


Best Features

Strong aftermarker support. I've replaced almost everything on this car that I've bought at car shows, web sites, etc.


Worst Features

When called by SVT 6 months after purchase, my answer was: Why aren't hood vents functional "Ram-Air?" And - This sure would be a lot more fun with a supercharger. (which I did soon therafter anyway)

Review

I have truly enjoyed this vehicle from
it's handling and excelleration to the
sound and looks of the car - it's very
fast sitting still. Unfortunately the
State Troopers see that too and have
been very aggressive toward it and my
son who drives it frequently. The only
trouble we've had is the clutch
recently went, and the tires go quickly
(could that be the fault of the teenage
driver? probably) The sound system is
excelent with both CD and Cassette from
the factory and the look under the hood
is a pleasure. No complaints.


Best Features

Best looking mustang ever! Great 5 speed tranny and it grabs the road when you put your foot in it. Feels great behind the wheel.


Worst Features

Tighter detail on the margins of the body and more durable ground effects parts. Better grade leather shift knob. Interior door panels and plastic parts seem just average.
