Coyote Powered American Iron: 1996 Ford Mustang Cobra

If I know anything about anything it’s that road race prepared late model Mustangs are REALLY hot right now.  Insanely hot.  And if you can get an eye-watering $65,000 for an ’88 Fox body, I can ONLY imagine what a properly sorted SN-95 Cobra built for American Iron racing series could be worth.  I dunno, a BILLION dollars?  Get yours before they all become unaffordable. Find this 1996 Ford Mustang Cobra here on eBay offered for $16,000 buy-it-now or make-offer.
