If you want a Mustang Cobra, the 1999 model year is the one to own. This sleek drop-top comes with fully independent suspension, five-speed stick transmission, and the numbers-matching 32-valve DOHC 4.6-liter engine churning out 320 hp. So it's amazing this much performance can be so affordable.
Those who know Mustang Cobras, also know that 1999 is pivotal. This is the first year of that Ford's Special Vehicle Team (SVT) got to do everything they've always wanted to put into a Mustang. So this is already instantly collectable, even before you know that they built less than 1,800 convertibles in black. After all, a pony car this sinister deserves to be as dark as midnight. And while there are a few signs of enjoyment, the car has been well respected, so you still get the sleek and dark presentation. After all, that's exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly car like this. But even on gray days, this one still looks great, because the tan roof adds a truly sophisticated look to this performance machine. Plus, the Cobra got special pieces, like the front air dam, full-width rear spoiler, snake-bitten badges, and a special hood. The final touch is the set of 17-inch SVT alloy wheels that are so cool, they actually are the wheel of choice for many Shelby Cobra replicas today.
There's a premium feeling throughout the interior. It starts with those supremely comfortable tan leather seats. The performance buckets are deeply bolstered, which is a good idea considering this car's performance. White-faced analog gauges, a leather-wrapped wheel, cruise control, power steering, and an upgraded shifter are all part of the performance package for the driver. Plus, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power mirrors, keyless entry, dual airbags, and the premium Mach 460 AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo will keep everyone happy. But the features you're going to enjoy the most are the power windows and power convertible top. Together, they mean you don't even have to leave the driver's seat when you want nothing getting in the way of hearing that exhaust growl. Plus, you can enjoy this top-down experience long into the summer season thanks to R134a air conditioning.
Since this car has been so well cared for thus far, it should be no surprise that it's the numbers-matching, performance-bred V8 under the hood. It looks exceptionally fresh, right down to the special SVT plaque on the valve cover. And keen eyes will spot the upgraded cold air intake. The DOHC 4.6-liter V8 is a thoroughly modern motor that has created a whole new generation of Mustang fans. The 32-valve setup means plenty of low-end power to get off the line, and the 320 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque mean there's still power on tap when getting up to triple-digit speeds. You have complete control over this stout powerplant thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. And speaking of control, this is the first and only fourth-gen Mustangs that came from the factory with a fully independent rear suspension. Massive four-wheel disc brakes with ABS were also part of the Cobra package, which are backed up by modern performance tires.
Complete with owner's manual, this Cobra has been treated with the respect you would want for your future classic. So at this affordable price, we know it won't be staying here for very long. Don't miss out, call today!!!
