it would have a 32 valve motor . A cobra intake? Does it have cobra brakes. 13 rotors in the front that are vented,and the caliper says cobra on it. Aluminum drive shaft? Cobra wheels? cobra emblems. 5 speed only

only auto if someone swapped it and usually its turned into a race car for track purposes. like everyone mentioned though, look at the engine, even the gauge cluster was different. call Ford and have them check the vin for you.

I thought VIN's were different for the Cobra Models.

It sounds like a GT in Cobra's clothing to me. Congrats on your first Stang!

Was the car represented as a Cobra? If so, you may have overpaid for it and should have a lawsuit filed for the difference in price...

The VIN number will tell you if it's a COBRA. Write down the entire 17 Character VIN number and call your local ford dealer and the service department or your insurance carrier can provide you with that answer.
