Looking to see what company makes the 94 to 95 cobra stock hoods. I have looked high and low and cant find a aftermarket company that still makes them. Any help would be much appreciated.

I am not aware of anyone making the specific cobra hood. As mentioned the cobra R hoods are available but the only stock cobra looking hoods are original ford parts.

94/95 Cobra hood is same hood as V6/GT cars.


What he said. A 94/95 Cobra hood is the same as any 94-98 V6 or GT hood.

H.O. Fibertrends makes a 96-98 Cobra hood with a 1" raised cowl. I have one on my car.
Edit: just checked their site and it appears as though they no longer sell it.

A guy on facebook named Doug Baker out of Cincinnati Ohio makes hoods. He currently has marketplace listings for multiple hoods for multiple models cars, sn95 mustangs included. His number is 513-531-6640. Ill try to post a link

I thought the 94/95 had the special openings or did that come later?


Body wise, only thing the 94/95 got that was "special" was the rear decklid with no 3rd brake light and the crab claw wing with the brake light built into it. Rear bumper was same as V6 car, hood was the same as V6 and GT cars.

96-98 got the Cobra hood and Cobra rear bumper, but went back to standard decklid/wing combo.

American Muscle has 94-98 hoods, unpainted, in stock, but they’re smooth and don’t have the Cobra “fangs” air scoops on the sides of the center section.
Unless I’m missing the boat entirely here, my understanding is that the 94-98 V6 and GT’s did NOT have the trademark Cobra “fangs” on the hood. These were exclusive to the SVT Cobra.

Here, also, are the V6 and GT inserts available from AM, which, as you can see, are nothing like the SVT Cobra’s.

So, either you can try to find Cobra “fang inserts” and fab them into a 94-98 hood OR post a thread in the WTT/WTB section and hope someone who swapped theirs out for something different still has their original SVT Cobra hood and is willing to part with it.

The next closest hood I’ve found is the Cervini Ram Air. Still NOT an exact match but closer looking to an original SVT Cobra hood than a stock V6 or GT hood.

Read above. The 94-95 Cobra had the same hood as 94-98 V6 and GT. Someone added yours to your car.
And you can't just "fab them" into the hood as the 96-98 Cobra hood has a completely different profile, featuring the bulge in the center.

I just meant differences between 94/95 Cobra and 96-98 Cobra.

Both have the Cobra front bumper/foglights and clear Cobra headlights. And I mean if you really want to dig in comparison to a V6/GT car they also have a Cobra airbag, Cobra fender badges, and a SVT badge on the rear decklid.... Pony is standard in the grill on all of 'em, some people want to argue that they had a Cobra there but they didn't.

Another difference is the 94-95 have "functional" side scoops.

ok I was %95 sure that it had that hood but it had been a minute.
94/95 cobra has the plain gt v6 hood. Cobra front bumper, V6 rear bumper and functional side scoops, 3rd brake light less deck lid eith the sweet crab claw spoiler wot integrated 3rd brake light.

96-98 cobra has nostril hood, cobra front bumper, cobra rear bumper, non functional side scoops, and a standard gt decklid/wing.

As for side skirts. They made a change somewhere in i think mid to late 95.. so the front cap goes up the front fender. Whereas the original 94 is like a long bar.
