4.6L Modular DOHC V8
The 1997 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra has a lot of appeal. It\'s a low-mileage stunner with the window sticker documentation for collectors. And for the drivers, it\'s hard to beat the DOHC V8 with the five-speed manual. And no matter which side you\'re on, you get to do it all for an affordable price.
A low mileage coupe like this instantly distinguishes itself with a crisp look of well-respected body panels. The other reason why this one can grab your attention so quickly is because the original Rio Red has been cared for quite nicely. It has the kind of gloss and shine that really loves to show off the sleek coupe\'s lines. And the big polished presentation is only heightened by the bright 17-inch SVT wheels. What is SVT? That\'s Ford\'s Special Vehicle\'s Team. They are not only the ones responsible for all the great design touches like the unique fascia, hood scoops, and coiled snake badges, but they also engineered this coupe to have the performance to back up its sporty image.
Step inside, and this Cobra gets to show you its dark side. The combination of black leather with red exterior is a timelessly attractive combo, and you can easily tell this car was babied for its low mileage lifetime. The leather looks amazing, and even the driver\'s bucket its supple and complete. The Cobra got just about every comfort and convenience option in the Mustang catalog as standard equipment from the factory. So the driver gets a great performance package that includes white-faced analog gauges, a leather-wrapped wheel, cruise control, power seat, and a five-speed stick shift. Plus, there\'s power windows, power locks, keyless entry, provisions for air conditioning (may need a recharge,) and the upgraded premium factory Mach 460 AM/FM/cassette stereo with separate CD player. This modern classic also lets you take advantage of safety features like dual airbags and anti-lock brakes.
Since this car has been so well cared for thus far, it should be no surprise that it\'s the engine bay has an ultra-tidy look. This is 4.6-liter modular V8, and it\'s believed to be original to the car. It is the performance-oriented DOHC 32-valve unit. That means plenty of low-end power and the kind of V8 muscle to hustle even at highway speeds. There\'s a huge aftermarket supply, but this highly original package has been preserved to be fresh, clean, and a well-maintained representation of the finest from Ford. The five-speed manual transmission snaps through the gears easily, and the SVT upgraded the chassis to make it worthy of the Cobra name. Helping corral all this performance is the power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy BF Goodrich performance tires.
You\'ll love everything about the collectability from the included window sticker to the factory markings still visible in the undercarriage. And you\'ll also love the driving fun of a five-speed Cobra. So it\'s a great total package that you need to make yours today. Call now!
