2003 Full Built Mustang CobraMy loss is your gain! I have to sell due to a business investment gone bad. It breaks my heart since having this car has always been a dream of mine. I have only put break in miles into the car and just had the oil changed from the break in.
This car has a 2.3 Whipple with a brand new built L and M engine. Good for up to 1500hp. You can call Michael the owner of L and M to verify (215) 675-8485
Body is in great shape for being 15 years old. Few small scuffs and scratches.
At moment car is set up for Open Track with a full Maximum Motorsport suspension, full length sub frame connectors, Coilovers etc. All support mods from electrical, plumbing and mechanical. I stopped short on brake upgrade and cage. Tuned down to 600 whp and torque. Mods are too many to list, well over $50k of work invested, see below with some details.
Car has a clear title in hand, never been wrecked or in any fender bender of any sort. Body and interior is about 8.5 out of 10. No rips or tears, just worn driver's seat and a couple holes in the driver's side pillar where I had the gauges moved. Has a bluetooth system with a sub and amp. I put some wrap on it, hood, top and trunk top, but that can be taken off easily. 39k miles and change.
Here are the mods, I'm sure I'm leaving out some stuff. The only two mods I didn't have installed because I ran out of money was upgraded brakes and roll bar/cage.

MISCELLANEOUS
The car went for emissions here in Seattle and failed because they couldn't get a read. This was due to the battery being disconnected and needing to go through a run cycle. I haven't ran it through a run cycle. Also, I suspect I have a small draw somewhere so someone will have to hook it up and find out where it's coming from. It holds a full battery charge for a few days, but will gradually go low. It could be alternator. As I mentioned I just don't have the money. It has a great driving tune that is super safe on 91 octane. It has a small belt chirp at startup that goes away after a minute or two. The trunk panel on driver's side is missing, why I have no idea other than the prior owner took it out to get some wiring done. However, the car has been gone through inch by inch rewiring and replumbing everything. Currently the rear tires are Hoosier slicks and are not DOT rated so they are good for going to a track but not long distance driving or wet weather. I was second owner and bought the car in 2005 with 3k miles on it and then sold it in 08 to a guy who immediately traded it in on a newer GT mustang. The dealer then sold it to a guy in the navy, whom I found out about and when he put it for sale contacted him and bought it back. It's a great romantic story, but I lost my ass on a business deal and have no other choice but to sell this and pay off debt from it. I literally am losing close to $50k. I bought the car back for $28k, the shop blew the engine on the dyno. I sent the engine to L & M and had it completely rebuilt into a race motor. While it was out of the car, I had literally everything replaced in the car. So it is better than brand new. I had the motor tuned down to a safe 600hp on pump gas. If I were to have kept it, I would have had the shop put racing brakes in it, get a roll bar or cage installed. Maybe tune it a bit more aggressively and get the emissions taken care of so I can drive it around. A couple small issues with a draw and get the A/C charged. As it sits it will start up immediately and haul ass anywhere you go without an issue.
