2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Coupe (4.6L 8cyl S/C 6M)
I grew up during the muscle car era when they ruled main streets all over America. With the mid- 70s oil crisis muscle cars slowly faded away. Finally, John Coletti, another baby boomer finally resurrected the power and feel of a muscle car. With a 2004 Mustang GT, I had to shift down to 3rd gear to get decent torque and yet feel more power in 6th gear on the highway for passing in the SVT Cobra, making highway driving a dream! The SN95 is the ultimate aerodynamic body style ever made for the Mustang and from the front, nothing beats the 03-04 SVT Cobra fascia. Compared to all other performance cars this is the ONLY one you could get new for under $40,000.
I love both the interior and exterior design above any other model of Mustang.
Too late for the factory, but nice to have on the stock vehicle would have been a short throw shifter, factory ported supercharger, stiffer IRS bushings, and more free flowing intake and exhaust.
