2003 cobra saleen

I purchased my first saleen from Mark at performance autosport back in may , a 2001 281sc car#801 and I have enjoyed the car immensely but the last few weeks i started thinkin about findin a 2003 cobra to get nasty with The saleen is beautiful but I want more power. After searchin all over the web I realized the car I wanted was right under my nose at performance yet again. So I talked to the owner for about an hour and deciced I wanted the car. I was just gonna get a cobra and put a saleen body kit on it which would have cost about 32grand alone with a stock cobra engine. So instead I'm gettin this cobra saleen . I just got off the phone with the owner and worked out a deal. Tommorow I will arrange for shipping and wire him his money. http://www.performanceautosport.com/detail.asp?car=5706 guys lemme know what you think. Read the little story about the car and glance at the pics. Im all excited just thinkin about the car gettin here If theres anything you know about cobra saleens then please post here . Thanx

If you want to be rare, kick ass, and have a difficult time turning down street races, then go for it.

As you know Mark at PAS is first class. Anything he knows that he tells you about a particular car will be the truth.

If the car passes an easy carfax, and you can back up the title timeline changes, and someone at the dealer ( which is one of the highest quality Saleen dealers ) then go for it. Call the dealer and ask for Chris Richards. He will be able to verify the story if it checks out.

Good luck.

Ask the owner if he has had the warranty work to replace the drivers side head yet too!

Reviews & Opinions


Overview: Review:
Review: The Mustang reached cult status almost immediately after its introduction in 1964 and to many people it still remains the ultimate ponycar. Again available as a coupe and convertible, this year the V-6 output was still 190 hp and the base V-8 went to 260 hp. The exciting Cobra version packing 320 hp from a twin-cam V-8 was suspended for a year. The Mustang still outsold it's only competitors, the Camaro and Firebird, put together. Those other two had now been put quietly to death. If you're looking for refinement you won't find it here. What you will find though is plenty of bang for your bucks.
Best Features: Engines all the way up to 390 hp;Cobra had the best underpinnings;A convertible was still offered;Mach 1 name reappeared;Lots of panache for the cash
Worst Features: Old and ugly interior;Iffy build quality;Kind of crude all over
Reliability History: Worse than average
Depreciation: Better than average
Potential Trouble: None

Car looks awesome. Everything in one package.

Enjoy it if you like it, though you *might* be able to do everything again for a slightly lesser price, assuming you could do everything but the body work yourself.

Either way, I don't really think they're asking too much, car appears perfect in the pics.

Yea, we all know Saleen quality is not the best but this Cobra is very little Saleen, other than the body kit, suspension and wheels.

Thanx so much for the carfax Big Top , that was kind of you to do for me , you saved me the trouble. I am workin on shippin arrangements as we speak which has been a huge hassle so far . theres a big vette show in pebble beach this month and a vette show in carlisle pa so everyone is booked but I am usin one of the transporters mark uses and i will have the car in 12 days or so so I'm pleased . Im payin 1500 bux to ship it in less then 2 weeks opposed to waitin at least a month and savin 200 bux. I spoke to the guy that details the car and he said its immaculate and the owner has bought several cars thru mark before ov er the last 6 years so im confident the car is the real deal. he said no scratches , dents or dings , only a few chips in front and 2 small spider web cracks on the front spolier which happens to all saleens . my saleen has 12,000 miles on it and has alot of spider web cracks on it so its to be expected. and as far as gettin an 03 cobra and gettin it to equal what this one has , thats not really possible considerin this car is a serial numbered saleen. to put the body kit and all the parts plus wheels and the blower on an 03 cobra which runs at least 28 grand with these miles .. you would spend at least 40 grand. trust me i ran all the numbers. this car is sure to win shows with maybe just a few lil additions under the hood . thats what i am into is showin cars , not racin them so this car suits my needs. thanx for the warm welcome to the site guys
