1996 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra
1996 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra
Instead of mixing the thoroughbred Cobra V8 among lesser engines at the Romeo, Michigan manufacturing plant, Ford had chosen to assemble the DOHC power plant off-line using a dozen two-member teams. Each team will build one engine start to finish and sign off their creation before sending it on its way. This personalized touch also happens to be a longstanding tradition at Aston Martin, the most exotic nameplate owned by the Ford Motor Company. Now, with true craftsmanship and 305 horsepower snorting under the muscle-Mustang's hood, America's original pony car enjoys world-class bragging rights.
For consignment an everyday looking Mustang from 1996, however with improvements under the hood, it is now a thoroughbred. Our consigner states there are over $10,000 worth of improvements put in for him by a Ford Master tech, so we know it runs well!
Starting out life from the factory as Laser Red, we now see a respray of Yellow. Yellow everywhere as this car and save for the badging, there is not one lick of chrome anywhere. Some scrapes and scratches are noted on the rocker areas, as well as the bumpers. A rear spoiler is seen, and correct SVT and Cobra Badges have been adhered to the bodywork. Custom American Racing Wheels gleam on all 4 corners and are staggered.
Sweet Corbeau Racing style seats in cloth stitched inserts and vinyl bolsters and plenty of body-hugging side panels keep you snugly in the seats when you are doing doughnuts in the parking lot. The iconic Mustang twin eyebrow dash in deep black and owning a peppering of white-faced gauges inserted within creates a stealthy look for the interior. We note this car is now a rear seat delete with simple carpeted storage in the back of the buckets. Ford racing gauges are aerodynamically imbedded into the A pillar so you can keep a close watch on the essentials. Embroidered in gray, Cobra Logo floor mats with black backgrounds cover nicely preserved black carpet.
SVT Mustang Cobras are for the first time equipped with Ford's 4.6-liter modular V8 engine. The Cobra's 4.6-liter dual overhead cam (DOHC) aluminum V8 produces 305 horsepower. However, with an added Kenne Bell Supercharger Kit, a JLT Cold Air Intake, upgraded runners, BBK Chrome Headers, MSD coil and Ford 9mm racing style wires, the horsepower has been increased. A new Stage 2 clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel prepare the 5-speed manual transmission to handle the extra power that will inevitably come its way.
Rust free, very clean, we note a complete Maximum Motor Sports Max Grip Kit for the front and rear suspension. A new 3.73 Posi rear, and 3 row aluminum radiator to keep it cool is there. Drilled and slotted rotors and Powerstop pads will bring you to s halt quickly. A custom H Pipe exhaust starts from the headers and heads rearward.
Lightened weight, plenty of performance and handling upgrades, and a change to Yellow, and we have our Thoroughbread. Not your average Cobra SVT, but now a Screaming Yellow Zonker. See ya!
