About My Car: SVT #411, VIN 136685. Born 2/16/93. Factory options include gray leather, 4-way power drivers seat, and rear window defrost. There were 5,100 1993 Cobras built, and only 1,007 in Vibrant Red with gray leather interior. 1993 was the first year of Ford’s SVT Cobra, and the final year of the “Fox” body Mustang platform. http://1993cobra.com/info.htm
Purchased in 2009 from a family that had owned it since 1994. This car is the proverbial “barn-find” as it had been residing in a suburban garage, unused and neglected for many years. Covered with dust, bird droppings, and cobwebs, it took a bit of elbow grease to bring it back to life. It’s a totally rust-free driver with it’s share of paint chips, road rash, etc. Still very original with only 30,000 miles. All stock except for Maximum Motorsports sub-frame connectors and 3.55 Ford Motorsport rear end gears. Even the exhaust is original with ’93 Cobra-specific mufflers. Future plans call for some suspension upgrades, possibly Cobra 13″ front brakes, and an aftermarket shifter. Otherwise, it’s good the way it is. This is the Mustang that gets driven the most often.
