Stock # EV625
Mileage: 34,807
Manual 5-Speed
Mystic Metallic
Black

We purchased this '96 Cobra from a gentleman in Michigan, the fourth owner. He told us that the previous three owners were all of a single family, also in Michigan. As it sits, this is a nicely-sorted, low-mileage example that runs and drives well. The car will come with all of the original books and manuals, including the window sticker for $27,485 in March 1996
Exterior
- Mystic Metallic paint shows extremely well. The only blemishes are some very minor chips on the lower front end, consistent with 34k miles of road use. Regardless of if the paint is too flashy for your taste or not, it'll unquestionably make you look twice. This color was available only on the '96 Cobra, having come to fruition as an effort by Ford to promote the car's new “high-tech” 4.6L 4V DOHC V8. The high-tech paint changes from green to purple to gold depending on lighting
- A paint gauge indicates that the rear quarters have both been resprayed. We asked the previous owner for comment as he had told us that the car was 100% original, and he had no knowledge of any prior damage, so it's likely that the damage occurred very early on, before the car came into his life. We note that it looks like the passenger quarter was replaced rather than repaired. I say that because we pulled the carpeting out of the trunk to take a look at the inside of the quarters, and one was grey while the other was black. Paint was clearly done by an authorized dealer, as the paint is special-order and was done to a factory-quality level. While the repainted quarters lead us to believe there was likely some sort of body damage at one point, the CarFax is clear, the underbody looks great, and the car feels just as it should at speed
- 17” cast aluminum wheels are in great shape, with no curb rash or oxidation. BF Goodrich tires are in excellent shape as well. DOT number indicates tires were manufactured in 2011
- Glass and light lenses are all clear and crack-free
- Weatherstripping is excellent throughout
Interior
- Black leather sport bucket seats are in great shape and are extremely comfortable. Driver's seat is 4-way powered, and both front seats have powered lumbar support. No scuffs, tears, or cracks, the only real signs of wear is minor creasing. Wear is consistent with 34k miles of use
- Dash is perfect. No cracks, scratches, or blemishes
- Air conditioning is functional, as is the radio, heat/fan/defrost, power windows, locks, and driver's seat. Odometer reads 34,807 and is believed accurate based on condition, known ownership history, and the vehicle history report
Under the Hood / Underbody
- The original 4.6L 4V DOHC V8 (305hp) is unmodified, and is paired with a 5spd manual. Power is more than sufficient, and the 5spd makes it a real blast to drive
- The car starts right up without fail, idles steady and cool, shifts nice and smoothly, and accelerates without any hesitation. The car tracks straight under both acceleration and braking, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are excellent
- Please take a look through the underbody photos, as it's documented in detail. Absolutely no rust, and no evidence of any leaks either. Many suspension components still have the factory stickers visible on them
Overall, this is a rare, well-documented, low-mileage example. With any further questions, requests, or to discuss purchasing, please reach out to Jake at 773-267-2684
