Ford Mustang Cobra R, for sale in St. Louis, Missouri, for $43,900.
In the wake of the 1993 Cobra R's unexpected success, Ford's SVT engineers developed a more powerful R-model based on the 1995 Cobra. Top priority became addressing customer requests for a larger, more powerful engine and increased fuel capacity. In response to those requests, SVT replaced the Cobra's 5.0 L V8 with an SVT modified version of Ford's 5.8 liter Windsor V8, re-engineered to produce 300 horsepower (220 kW) and installed a Kevlar 20 U. S. gallons (76 L) fuel tank.
To handle the torque of the more powerful engine, a Tremec 3550 5-speed manual transmission was installed. Again, weight-savings was targeted, so the R model had no back seat, radio, power windows/seats or air-conditioning-not even fog lights, which were omitted to provide ducts for getting cool air onto the front disk brakes.
Heavy-duty progressive-rate springs, thicker stabilizer bars and a front strut tower brace helped improve handling on the racetrack. Only 250 vehicles were built, available only in white with saddle cloth interior, each with a unique center-tiered fiberglass hood tall enough to clear the engine and induction system.
This one-owner 1995 Cobra is #33 of 250 and has just 948 original miles. The car has never been used on the track, has always been stored in a climate controlled garage and has seen little more than a some weekend around-town use. The car comes with the original factory plastic still on the seats and retains the original grease pencil marks on the windows. Also included with the awesome car are two window stickers, all of the original documentation from FoMoCo and some cool memorabilia including t-shirts, a hat, and magazine features. All of the letters from Ford to the original owner are included with sale sale as well.
This extremely low-mile, track-ready beast is a rare find and ready for your Mustang collection.
