For sale in our Detroit Showroom is one low-mileage Mystichrome Ford Mustang Cobra. Ford introduced the Mystic Cobra for 1996, which featured high-tech, color-shifting paint formulated by BASF. Utilizing color-shifting ChromaFlair pigments from Flex Products, the Mystic paint shifted from Green to Amber to Gold to Purple depending on the angle and the availability of light. The research and development process for this paint took three years to complete! Only available on the Cobra coupe, the Mystic paint option cost only $815 at the time, and the 1996 Mystic Cobra was the first production vehicle to wear a color-shifting factory paint job. This is number 1969 of the 2000 Mystic Cobras produced and finding one this nice is definitely something worth holding on too.
The Cobra name first found its way to performance cars way back in 1962 with the Shelby Cobras and found its way to the Mustang lineup in 1968 and has been synonymous with speed and performance. On the inside you will notice no shortage of equipment including cruise control, power steering, power brakes, AM/FM stereo with cassette and CD Player and luxurious Black leather seat upholstering featuring electronic lumbar support. The front grille has received the floating snake emblem to replace the infamous Mustang logo that used to reside in the front grille area. This modern muscle car is a blast to drive and has all of the comfort and convenience you would expect out of a modern luxury car.
Under the hood you will find the original 4.6 Liter 32 Valve V8 that produced 305 horsepower while still delivering 26 miles per gallon on the highway. The 5-speed transmission makes this car a blast to drive and will quickly get this Mustang up to highway speed without hesitation. All of the paint on this beauty is original and shows very little signs, if any of being driven. With very low original miles, this car still looks and behaves like a new car and still has the leathery new-car smell.
