I decided to reduce my fleet of cars. This car has mostly sitting in my garage for the last ten years with occasional drives to work where it’s parked in the cool sub basement of a parking garage. I’ve owned this for the last 13 years. I know the last two owners (last was older baby boomer muscle car aficionado and previous owner had Mustang collection including a couple Cobra Rs). This car has really been taken care of and includes a three ring folder and file folder with over five pounds of receipts going back 16 years and a log book going back 13 years which documents every gas fill, oil change and maintenance item. The car has never been raced or on the track. Clean Carfax, no accidents, original rust free California car.

There’s a lot of time and money invested in this Cobra. Professionally built. Looking for a Mustang enthusiast buyer who can really appreciate this car. I essentially have too many cars and other priorities absorbing my time.

The GR40 suspension completely changes the suspension geometry of the car. Rides great and corners flat. Really responsive steering.
This video demonstrates the GR40 suspension in action (this is not the car for sale here but shows what a GR40 Cobra can do):


Stroker 410 Windsor built by ESI Race Engines; SCT dyno tune switch chip by Bruce Tucker at JBA Racing
Blueprinted with spec sheet
Eagle forged crank, Eagle forged H beam rods, SRP forged pistons, main stud girdle
Ported and flowed Windsor Sr. heads (recently rebuilt, includes flow sheet), ARP bolts
Crane aluminum roller rockers
Comp Cams custom grind roller cam and lifters, push rods and double roller timing chain
JBA Racing ceramic coated headers, custom built exhaust, Magnaflow stainless mufflers
Trick Flow intake, BBK 75mm throttle body, Mac cold air intake, K&N filter
MSD billet distributor, MSD6AL ignition box and MSD coil, Comp Poly Composite Distributor gear
Griffin aluminum radiator, Flex-a-Lite fan controller
PA performance starter with heat blanket
Goodyear Hi-miler hoses
Polyurethane engine and transmission mounts

Tan with newer black carpet, recently recovered Corbeau microsuade seats
Autometer engine temp and oil pressure gauges

Front driver’s side ABS sensor needs replacement. Due to the suspension modifications it’s necessary to remove the tie rod arm to remove the ABS sensor. My plans were to do this and replace the steering rack at the same time which would include new inner tie rods as these are worn as well (common on lowered Mustangs).

This car runs and drives great with crazy torque. Rides smooth and is surprisingly docile. Alignment is straight.

Thanks! I haven't been too aggressive listing it for sale as am not in a huge hurry. I'm more interested in finding the right buyer who will take care of it. The last Mustang I had and sold 12 years back a guy got it for his high school aged son who didn't take care of it. I about cried when I saw how trashed it was a year later.

I did list it on Hemmings and dropped the price to 16K.

900 RPMs. It's got a noticeable lope but not too radical. Custom grind comp roller 114 LSA, 0.564 lift, Duration at 0.050 228 Intake 232 Exhaust.

Passes CA smog. 30 PPM HC at 15 mph, 15 PPM HC at 25, CO is negligible, NO is 0017 and 0194 PPM at 15 and 25 mph respectively.

More power possible with a bigger cam.
424 rwt and 360 rwhp before the installation of roller cam, larger throttle body (had a 65 mm previously which was choking air flow), larger headers and rebuilt heads with valve job. So probably freed up some power. Comp said I could go bigger with the cam for more power but wanted a wide lobe separation for torque and emissions.

Still for sale. I wasn't actively listing this due to the pandemic and whatnot but figured now summer is here maybe someone wants this nice car. I put the price at $15K. I wasn't sure what the market was for these SN95 Cobras.
