Hey fellow Mustang lovers! :D

I recently came across a 1999 Cobra SVT that's been pretty tricked out. He claims the chassis has about 160K miles on it, but the engine was rebuilt with a competition cam 50K miles ago as well as a new transmition less than 5K miles ago with aluminum flywheel and stage 2 clutch. Has a K&N filter, Bassani X-Pipe, full exhaust (doesn't say which brand though), Eibach Pro kit, tokico blue shocks, new radiator, the rear end was rebuilt with new 373 gears also has the newer 03/04 cobra rims on it with the matching brakes almost all new urathane bushings under the car has tan leather interior no rips the outside has a few small dents.

All for only $8000.

What do you experts think? Is it worth it? I love the Cobras and would love to get one. What are some things I should watch out for or look at? The car is about 45 minutes without trafic away from me, so I want to get as much info as I can before making the trip.

Any tips, suggestions, thoughts ect would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
-Mike

I just got photos from him. Kinda crappy cell phone pics, but I suppose it gives an idea. And you have a valid point about possibly being beat up, after all, he did come up front and tell me it has it's battle wounds.

Is he in Irvine? If so it might be the same one, though he said it was a little banged up. Did you notice that and your saying other than a few flaws it looks good?.

personally, I would pay 8k for it, but spend some money before you buy it to have it checked out by a mechanic through and through. itll cost about 100 bucks or so to have a place give a look at it. they might claim things are a little worse then they are, so just meet in the middle on the problems and go from there.

I'm in a similar situation, but car is clean. Heard of some scary problems on 99 cobras. Any suggestions what I should check before making an offer? What do you think of his price?

If the motor was rebuilt 5k miles ago I would say it's not a bad deal, if he can't provide paper work or a phone number to call and prove this then I would pass on it, probably lieing.

Yea for 8k that sounds pretty good IF he has the papers for the rebuild.
