1999 Ford Mustang Cobra
1999 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Convertible with 91,000 miles.
Like the rest of the Mustang lineup, the Cobra received an entire exterior redo this year that includes angular sheet metal, new headlights and taillights, different side scoops and revised C-pillars. The big news, however, is the under-the-skin changes that include increased engine output, improved steering gear and the debut of a more sophisticated rear suspension.
Tired of being beat in the power game by the V8 Camaro and Firebird twins, Ford has beefed up the SVT Cobra considerably for this year. Not only does this pony feature more horsepower (320 at 6,000 rpm) than before, but it comes standard with independent rear suspension, a first in the Mustang’s 35-year history.
The Mustang’s driving experience is enhanced by new steering gear, which reduces kickback, gives the car a tighter turning radius, and increases road feel. The independent rear suspension gives the newest Cobra better control and ride quality over bumps, especially when they’re located in the middle of a turn.
