Evaluation: One owner Cobra showing 8 miles. Paint and engine could use a detailing to really make it pop but it has no flaws. Only about 2000 Mystic Cobras were produced with this trippy paint that shifts from green to purple and sometimes even gold or brown depending on the light. Just a few ounces of the paint costs thousands of dollars, many body shops won’t work with it, and a Ford representative used to have to be present for anyone to work with the stuff.
Bottom Line: The window sticker on this Cobra reads $27,485. And, adjusted for inflation, that original price comes out to about $52,000 in 2022. You can’t just park a car for 25 years, even a relatively rare high-performance car, and expect to make money on it. It happens, but the result often looks like this, too.
