Hey folks, just wondering on what the value of my Cobra might be. Basically, the motor is in need of being redone. It has a spun rod bearing, and may need some valves replaced according to the shop that checked it out. It still does run and drive, but makes a tapping noise from the drivers side head.

The Info:
97 SVT Cobra (#53 built), Pacific Green Pearl. Car has 70XXX, motor has 30XXX. Previous owner had to replace the motor because it had been ran low on oil and died. It was replaced with a remanufactured 97 Cobra motor. I'm the 3rd owner, and have only had it a few months. The motor had a very faint tap when I got it, now I know what the noise is...

The mods:
-Procharger P1SC intercooled supercharger
-FRPP 4.10 gears
-Clutchmasters clutch
-98 Cobra 5-spoke wheels with 90%+ tread tires (Sumitomo tires)
-Smoked headlights, corners, and fogs from blue oval industries. **With retrofitted Mercedes bi-xenon projectors**
-Flowmaster exhaust with catted X-pipe
-Tinted windows(15% rear 3, 35% front doors)
-6 Stewart Warner gauges. 3 in triple pillar replacement pod, 3 in aluminum holder under stereo. G.U.S. gauge, boost, A/F, Volts, Oil pressure, Water temp.
-Optima red top battery
-Stereo system: Pioneer headunit, two US Aucustic amps, two 12" polk/MOMO subs, MB Quart main speakers. Rear seat deleted, amps where bottom of seat was, subs where back of seat was, all cusom installed. 12 Disk Pioneer changer in trunk.

I am mainly interested in hearing what it may be worth in it's current state. I have recieved quotes on built boost friendly motors, but will not have that kind of money for some time to put into it. I love the car, but I can't stand seeing it sit. Just wanting to weigh out my options.

Thanks for your input!! :)


-Kevin.

Soo much love for the flaps!!! They have kept the paint nice and shiney though..... :banana:

I ckecked the KBB values, and even fair condition was 7K or so. Like I said, I really love the car, but can't stand to see it just sitting while I can't afford a new motor. Just looking for some ideas. Thanks!! O0

fo a supercharged 4V... ??? alone the supercharger will fetch 2Gs...it has one of the most sought after blocks for 4.6s and the body is in decent condition.

you can definitely get at least 6K for it, if you sit back and wait long enough you can probably get around 8.
