Just bought my 1st mustang last night. I bought a 97 cobra that needs some love. The drivetrain seems solid and it has a clean title. No rust 87k on the odometer. That’s the good. The bad there was some hidden front end damage( gotta get on a lift to see severity) I don’t think it could be to bad as the penal gaps are pretty good and it tracks perfectly. The paint is awful. It has some electrical issues. windows go down not up. seat goes forward but not back. Dome light won’t shut off. Only a few gauges work.Right front has a squeak when driving. Rear end clunks (was told but can’t confirm). The interior is rough. It was smoked in, and generally dirty. Needs a center console and front seats. Its rough but I wanted a project to bond with my sons. My oldest is getting into cars and racing (hopefully the other 2 do as well). The plan is autocross as that’s about the easiest way to get into racing. I will probably have lots of questions as I dive into this. Hopefully I found a diamond in the rough and I’m not trying to polish a turd lol. It’s my 1st ford so I’m pretty unfamiliar with these.
