Hemmings Find of the Day: 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra – Daniel Strohl @Hemmings


Upgraded 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra for sale on From the seller’s description:

Black, black cloth, no sunroof

Of the 4,993 Fox Cobras produced, 448 Black/black cars were built. Since there is no breakdown of sunroof versus no sunroof, the most accurate anyone can say is this car is 1 of less than 448 cars.

When you are searching for comparable vehicles to compare price, keep in mind this is a Foxbody Cobra, not a Mustang GT or LX 5.0. Being a Cobra, there are not even 12 that are currently on the market so it should be a quick comparison.

For at least the last 12 years, since I’ve owned it and the previous owner, it has always been garaged. The strut towers and torque boxes are solid with no rust.

The hood has been replaced with an OEM take-off, I do not know why; fenders, front bumper, doors, quarters and hatch are original with VIN stickers. There are small dings and scratches that I cannot capture in pictures. There is also a chip in the leading edge of the drivers door that has been touched up.

Could This 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R Set A Fox-Body Record? – Shane McGlaun @FordAuthority


A Fox-Body Record?

Way back in January, we were shocked when a 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R went across the auction block and sold for $132,000 with 500 miles on the clock. It was the most expensive Fox-body ever sold. That car was in perfect shape, was #11 out of 107 made, and still had the plastic on the seats. Another, even lower mile, 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra R is set to go across the auction block with Barrett-Jackson at the Scottsdale 2020 auction.

The owner of the 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT seen here bought the car brand new, and then put it on jack stands in a garage.

Over its lifetime the Cobra has only driven 668 miles. The owner said that the car was just like brand new and still smells like a new car and rolls on its factory tires. The only thing that has been changed over the years is the factory battery.

Shay, Pray and the Replica Car Movement Part 1
