1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra 2dr Convertible


I have been pretty happy with 98 Cobra
convertible and have owned it for
almost 5 years. The 98 model looks
great and has been
relatively "bulletproof". The 98 model
handles very well for a live-rear-axle
car, although it is no BMW M3 in the
1. The 98 Cobra engine sounds
fantastic - almost like a Ferrari
2.looks great
3. good acceleration, handling and
4. reliability is excellent compared to
most hi-perf cars
5. Works as both a performance car and
a daily driver
6. Mach 460 is a really good OEM
stereo - you won't need to upgrade.
7. In summary, an excellent balance of
performance, driveability, and low cost.

Best Features

1 - Engine sound with the convertible top down 2 - the ability to effortlessly blow away 90% of the other cars on the road.

Worst Features

It's too late to suggest improvements for the 98 Cobra, but needs wider tires (for looks only), a little more leg room up front, and a little more torque at low rpms.
