Wouldn’t it be nice to buy a brand new old car? Well, if you are a Mustang enthusiast with money burning holes in your pockets, it’s your lucky day! There is a seller on eBay that had apparently bought some special edition Mustangs back around Y2K and is now selling a couple of them. Yesterday’s listing was a 2000 Mustang SVT Cobra R with 11 miles. It was clearly bought as an investment because it has “No Pre-Delivery Inspection” written all over it. This means that all the plastic crap was left on it from when it was shipped to the dealer, and a technician didn’t go through it to test everything out and top off all the fluids. No big deal, I’m sure the car is juuuust fine without it. The real beauty is the fantastically simple combination of big V8, light car, manual transmission, and rear wheel drive. From the factory, they had 385 horsepower on tap, 6 gears, and 265/40/18’s gluing you to the ground. They also only made 300 of them this year, so it’s a rare bird to say the least. The eBay price on this car was $70,000, which is honestly not much above the original purchase price of $54,995. Sadly, it looks like the listing was ended early after receiving offers everywhere from $1 to $60,500. According to the eBay listing, the seller declined all of the offers, but who knows for sure.
With a little digging I landed on another beautiful Mustang listed by the same seller. This one is currently for sale for the next 14 days, has half the mileage and is half the price! For a mere $35,000 you could have your very own 2003 Ford Mustang SVT with 5.5 miles on it. Somebody is losing money on this for sure, and they didn’t even get to enjoy it. The 2003 Cobra came with 390 horsepower and 390 ft lbs. torque, 6 gears, and a supercharger that will help you get down the quarter mile in the low 13 second range. Do it!
