Mustang 1997

Title Status --
Exterior Color Rio Red
Interior Color Saddle


This 1997 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra is powerful, sleek, fast, distinct, and loaded. That makes it a desirable collectible offered for a terrific price.

SVT and Cobra are some of the most desirable names in blue oval performance, so when you have them on the same car, you know you've got the right machine. The Rio Red paint shows all the right signs of being the factory application, and it has the high gloss and shine that shows good care over the decades. This car was owned by an enthusiast, and so you see a lot of personal touches that are well-integrated. The billet grille, clear headlights, fender flares, and rear fender scoops all add plenty of speedy style. There's even a Saleen rear spoiler that comes with the sale. And we love the look of the upgraded 18-inch polished wheels that also give you a peek at the red brake calipers.

The saddle tan interior has a timelessly attractive look against the bright red exterior. And as attractive as this color combo is, it's said that there were only 811 examples in this color combo for 1997! It's a nice driver's setup with a leather sport bucket seats, Cobra sport steering wheel on a tilt column, and special white-faced gauges. Plus, there are nice comfort features like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, and cruise control. Just like the exterior, there's also room for custom details. You get in performance-minded pieces, like the upgraded pedals and short throw shifter. Plus, the driving music is upgraded with an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input.

Under the hood is the correct 4.6-liter modular V8. It has the right stock look, including the Cobra engine sticker that signals an earlier '97 build. So this is believed to be the original motor. On an SVT Cobra this 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. And because this has an upgraded X-piper Flowmaster dual exhaust, you get a wonderful high-octane tune when you're doing it all. 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 Mustang's performance is the power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and performance tires.

This is the speedy Cobra done with added flair. So if you love power, rarity and style - all for an affordable price - you don't want to miss this Mustang. Call now!
