I would be afraid to buy anything that has problems with overheating. Depending on how many times it has overheated, its weakinging the engine every time. I would keep looking, you can find some sweet deals on cars with no issues...

If you can get it for $2,500 and the paint and interior isn't just a complete basket case then I would go for it. Would be a great project. Those SN95 Cobras are so sexy and really make a great platform for any type of performance/racing. Worst case scenario is you have to rebuild the motor. As long as you aren't looking at this for a daily driver then do it.

Yeah $2200 I'd do it for a project car if you have the cash.

I'd do $2200. Chances are it probably has an air bubble in the cooling system and wasn't burped properly. That or water pump.

Cool deal dude. $2200 is worth it, even with a shot engine, as long as you aren't planning on daily driving it. I bought mine for $4k with 160k miles on it, but I did a compression test on the engine myself, before doing it and it was in perfect condition inside and out. I also bought mine from the original owner who was a 61 year old Romanian lady and it was garage kept so I knew she took good care of it and it wasn't beaten on daily. You can tell a lot about the car just by looking at the owner lol.
