1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Coupe 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.
