Talk about a rare pony. This 1996 Ford Mustang Cobra SVT Coupe has only 96 miles and came from the factory in the one-year Mystic Clearcoat Metallic paint color. Only 2,000 cars were painted in this color. It is a rare find and there isn't anything like it on the market, especially with under 100 miles.
This car was purchased new through Tony Betten Ford of Grand Rapids, MI and has stayed local since, stored indoors. The original window sticker is still in tact and displayed on the passenger window. Nothing on this car has been altered. The car is powered by Ford's 4.6L SHP 4V DOHC V8 engine mated to a 5-Speed Manual transmission with rear-wheel drive. Again, it is finished in factory Mystic Clearcoat Metallic. 1996 was the only year they made this color and they released just 2,000 cars with this color. The paint is green based, but depending on which angle the car is viewed from, the colors shift from green to purple to root beer to gold. The car also came with upgrades like a CD player, Alarm System, Mach 460 Stereo and Speakers, and Leather Seats.
This car is true time capsule and a vehicle that is guaranteed to appreciate over time. Take a look at the Fox Body Mustang appreciation values. The late 90's Cobra is next and a one-year limited color option with 96 miles makes this example the most desirable. Call or e-mail if interested. Thank you for looking.

1996 SVT Mustang Cobra
The major change for the 1996 SVT Mustang Cobra was the move to a brand-new, unique powertrain, a hand-assembled, all-aluminum dual overhead cam (DOHC) 4.6-liter V-8 rated at 305 horsepower. With its high-revving characteristics, the Modular engine was worlds apart from the venerable 5.0 small-block and ushered the SVT Cobra into a new era of modern performance. The engine change brought about a 65-hp increase over the previous year, good for a 0-60 mph time of 5.9 seconds, the quarter-mile in 13.9 and a top speed of 152 mph. To enhance the exclusivity of the Cobra Coupe, a unique high-tech, color-shifting paint dubbed “Mystic” was offered, with a one-time run of just 2,000 “Mystic” Coupes produced.
