The Bad:
Back when Charles had the car it was in a minor rear end collision. From what I understand, the only thing that was replaced was the rear urethane bumper cover, and there was no sheet metal damage. I never ran a carfax on this thing, so I don't know if that will show up on it or not. Depends on how Charles had it fixed.

The other bad thing is a scuff on the splitter and a paint chip just above it. This was there when I bought the car (and I'd forgotten all about it until last night when I was cleaning the front clip off) and it's a little worse now thanks to a test drive earlier this summer. The guy driving accidentally bottomed the car out on a dip while going around double the speed limit. After he left I checked the K-member for damage (didn't see anything) but didn't bother to check the front bumper...he did manage to make that chip a little worse. It's still not terrible, but it's there.

Rock Chips. This car has a few of them. They drive me crazy. If I were keeping it, I'd get the whole front clip repainted just to get rid of the damn things. Ditto with the lousy factory paint on the under side of the hood. This would also fix the above chip on the lower valence just above the splitter, which would make me doubly happy. But, since it's for sale, I am not going to bother.

Inside of the wheels. AFS didn't put a very good coating of chrome in there, and it's oxidized. This is especially discouraging because the car saw one season of bad weather with these on it before it got sidelined by a new daily. Since then, it's only seen rain a handful of times, but apparently it's been enough to cause some oxidation on the inside of the wheels. The spokes and outside still look great, but if you are like me and keep the inside of the wheels cleaned up too, you'll probably want to pull them off and buff it out inside.

The car has no other issues that I'm aware of, aside from a bad Wideband O2 sensor that I plan on replacing prior to the sale. Given that this failed, the health of the regular O2 sensors is probably suspect. Depending on how much disposable income I have after Christmas, I may just replace these as well and be done with it.

If anyone has ANY questions, please ask. I'd rather be forth coming about any and all issues with the car and loose a sale, then lie or keep things to myself and have someone pissed later because I forgot to disclose something.

So I think that about covers it.

Here are the pictures from tonight, and some pictures of the inside from about a month or so ago when it was last outside in daylight:

I have to ask...is the fox in the background for sale? That would help you "downsize the fleet", correct?

Two very nice cars! GLWS

Seriously...let me know if the fox is on the block too. :)

Nah, the fox stays. I've had that car for a long time, and I don't plan on ever selling. While it's true it would reduce the total number of cars I have, I still couldn't part with it. While I love the cobra, I just don't have the attachment to it that I do with that old foxbody.

After this cobra is sold, I'll have one other vehicle to unload, but that will need to wait until my wife and I get replacements. Shooting to have 3 cars total after this is done, two new ones, and that old fox.

I'm actually kind of surprised you were the first person to ask. Most people know I have it, but haven't seen it in a long time...I've had it locked up in the garage for the last 6 years restoring it.

89GTPA; Thanks.

While I still have it, the car is tentatively sold. It was supposed to go down today, but the weather took care of that (freezing rain here). Re-scheduled for Thursday. I'll post up with the results.

Looks like the buyer from this morning is back already. lol. He called and said to put it back up for sale, then called me back and said hold on. So I guess hold on...*sigh*.

Still waiting on a go/no go from the current buyer. Was supposed to know last night, but didn't hear back from him. I'll do what I can to get an answer from him today one way or the other, and I'll post up with the results as soon as they happen.
