I’ve got a soft spot for ’87 through ’93 curve-nose Fox Body Mustangs. This 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra for sale represented the pinnacle of the breed, making a whopping 235 horsepower! Let’s all let that sink in for a bit.
Nevertheless, this car was gorgeous and awesome the day it left the showroom and hasn’t aged a bit. Seriously, I bet it still has 90s-grade new car smell. In addition to the condition, the owner has the all the original paperwork that goes with a high-end, high-dollar, low-miles “time capsule” collector car. And that’s the weird part: is a ’93 Cobra really a $30,000 car? Are people actually collecting them the way they obsessively collect other classics? Aside from being the end of an era (5.0s and the original Fox body styling), it’s not a particularly significant car.
For us, here, the appeal of the Fox body is it’s cheapness, parts availability and un-special nature that makes it ok to modify and flog as we see fit. I doubt any of us will be punching the $29,000 “Buy it Now” option, but can you even think of who would?
