Mom-in-law’s Cobra for sale: 97 Cobra SVT Coupe, 15K miles

Update: It’s sold.

You know those bought-new-by-an-old-lady-and-hardly-driven sports car deals used car salesmen try to convince you you’re getting. Well this is the real deal so I thought I’d post it to my blog.

My mom in law who is a lovely english lady with a taste for red collectible sports cars is selling her 97 Cobra SVT Coupe for a steal. She hardly drives it anymore and wants it to go to a good home. It only has 15,413 miles on the clock.

This Cobra has the newer aluminum 4.6 liter, DOHC, modular V8 engine that is smoother and produces 305 hp and 300 lbf·ft  of torque off the factory floor.

I’m going to cross post this to eBay motors soon, so if you read this blog you have a short while to get a first look. She’s asking $14,950. Cash only, and please bring the cash with you if you want to test drive. Sorry, but she’s heard too many joy-ride horror stories and this car is in showroom condition.

This car is in Elizabeth, Colorado, about 40 minutes south of Denver. If I know you and you’re in Seattle or somewhere between Seattle and Denver then we can probably figure something out. Kerry and I drive the route often and we can probably drop the car off on our way to Seattle.

V8 4.6 liter 305hp. 5 speed manual with Overdrive. ABS/Disc brakes. BOSE stereo system. Power steering, power brakes, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, power driver’s seat, air conditioning, cruise control, alarm system, dual air-bags, remote keyless entry. Rear spoiler. Black leather interior. Tinted windows. Fog lamps. California emissions system. CD player. Rear window defroster. SVT – engine has been signed by the Special Vehicle Team. Only 6,961 Cobra Coupes were made for this year.

Service schedule followed religiously, no work done besides regular oil changes etc. This car has never been modified, chipped, etc (obviously!)

VIN: 1FALP47V4VF193183
