Only 370 Miles Driven! 1995 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

It’s always great seeing survivor quality vehicles, even regardless of mileage – it shows that folks can balance both enjoying and using their vehicle while also taking meticulous care of it. However, others purchase a vehicle for investment purposes and barely tack on any miles, and this 1995 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra that’s available here on eBay is a prime example of that practice.

This Cobra is available in Coal Valley, Illinois with a clean title. Since new, the vehicle spent its life in a climate-controlled garage, and despite having a few minor modifications; this pony only has 370 miles on the odometer.

As you can expect, this muscle car is flawless, inside and out. The SVT Cobra is one of the most prolific variants in the Mustang’s history, and this is an excellent specimen of an early SN95 model. I particularly enjoy the Rio Red exterior paint color, which was one of three available for the 1995 model year.

Inside the vehicle, you’ll find a tidy cabin with black and grey cloth upholstery. There isn’t a ton to say about the interior besides noting its cleanliness, but the plastic is still on the carpeting, and the original floor mats are still packaged in the trunk.

There’s a 5.0-liter small block V8 engine under the hood, which pairs to 5-speed manual transmission to drive the rear wheels. As mentioned earlier, there are only 370 miles on the drivetrain, which supposedly saw no miles after a few small modifications, which include lowering springs, underdrive pullies, and MAC shorty headers. However, if you’d like a completely unmodified SVT Cobra, don’t fret – the seller includes the original springs, pullies, and headers with the vehicle’s sale.

At the time of publication, bidding is at $12,100 with the reserve not met. The seller calls this Mustang “a true investment opportunity for someone to add to their collection,” which begs the question – would you add some miles to this SVT Cobra, or would you also treat it as an investment?

    Nice SVT Cobra.

    A comment about the “small” modifications. I realize these modifications were, and are, very common, and that they are reversible. I wonder why the owner did them, then never drove the car. For some (most?) possible buyers of a 370-mile car, the appeal would include its absolute stock condition. If I was a buyer, that is how I would approach this car, and as such, I would likely pass.

    Thanks Kevin.

      Maybe the mods created drivability issues…if the various sensors and controls don’t like what they’re seeing, they can start pushing back on you. I’m with you on the mods, bone stock or I’d keep looking….especially at this mileage.

    Seems strange to be so into the car to do the mods and then not drive it any significant miles.

    I don’t see this as an investment, even at the current bid of $14K. These were about $24K when new btw.. The ’94-98 styling does not seem to have wide appeal. I have one of these. Same color combo, but with 245K mi. Very reliable. Bob_in_TN is spot on.

    Wonder why the owner never drove it? Kind of like saving it so the next owner can enjoy driving it.

    I’m surprised to see cloth upholstery. It’s refreshing actually.

      actually nice, as the cloth will last longer than 5-6 weeks that the walmart leather will.

    I have three in this style and love them all. Better than a fox body and certainly better than the 99 – 01 Cobras but to each their own.

    I sat in a car recently that didn’t have leather.
    It was quite strange but oddly comforting.

    I have cloth in my truck. My wife’s car has heated and cooled leather seats. My kids prefer the cloth saying it’s more comfortable. I tend to agree.
