The other night I was driving down the highway and passed a New Edge. As I was behind him getting closer, the first thing I noticed was that there was no solid rear axle. It was IRS so I knew it must be a Cobra (or someone spent a lot of money to was IRS into a GT :confused:). But, the back bumper said "Mustang" and not "Cobra"

I'm pretty sure the 96-98 Cobra's and Termi's said "Cobra" on the back. Did the 99-01 Cobra's say "Mustang" on the back bumper or did he switch his Cobra bumper for a GT bumper?

Lots of variables there, if he isn't original owner the previous owner could have had to have the rear bump replaced and body shop ordered incorrectly.

^^ Seen this done to two seperate cobra people.

Its not really that much money to put irs in a gt. Some 03 cobra owners will do direct trades with no money involved to trade their irs for a solid axle.

Yeah, it had the amber in the tail lights and a Cobra front bumper. I do believe it was a Cobra (it didn't really sound like a 2V) but wasn't sure if they came w/ "Mustang" in the bumper. It just seemed illogical that Ford would go from "Cobra" in the 96-98, to "Mustang" on the New Edge Cobra's (but apparently it was just '99), then back to "Cobra" on the Termi's.

Sadly :(

I'm trying to decide if I want to get an 01 bumper or a termi...My only problem is that the termi wont look complete unless I get the termi spoiler with it

So...I'll prolly go with an 01 lol

99s and 00 Cobra Rs had "Mustang" on the bumper cover. '99s because Ford didn't have the time to make the molds (supposedly) and it was that or GT; for the '00s it was because they used side-exhaust and the sixxer bumper cover was the only one that didn't have cutouts for exhaust pipes.

Don't let AZ see this, but the 03/04 bumper is pure honey covered sticky sex! It is one of the main components of having the ultimate PIIHB cobra. You don't need the side skirts or anything else. Trust me, I'm a doctor.
