This is my second Cobra. They are great cars, Both cars have been Sunday driver cars. They both required very minimal maintenance, looks great, get comments from people on how nice it looks. 305HP was plenty of plenty of performance for its day. A bit different today with monster cars like the Hellcat pushing 707 HP stock from Detroit. The car rides nice and best of all, whenever you turn the key, it6 starts right up. Not like my 70 Challenger, turn the key and wonder what is going to happen today.

1997 Ford Mustang GT Coupe

The 1997 Ford Mustang coupe has many things that keep us coming back to Ford in the Pony car wars. This is one of our favourite Mustang styles due to its bold wishes to change the game up completely. It has a healthy number of old as well as new styling features. Our favourites include the 3 bulb vertical tail lights, and functional hood vents. However not everything is a hit on this car. The 215hp 2V 4.6L V8 may sound incredible all the way up to its 6000rpm redline, but a 6.2sec 0-60 time was a bit disappointing. Also, any heavy engine modifications are expensive. Around the bends however, the car is a different story. with 290 lb-ft of torque, and incredibly sticky 245/45ZR17 tires equipped, the Mustang GT used amazing grip to throw it around the corners at top speed with minimal body roll. With those great torque numbers you also get great punch coming out of the corners. When the back end inevitably steps out, the slides are some of the easiest to control, 5/5 cornering performance. Brakes have a nice feel but initial bite is a bit low, fading was never an issue. Our 1997 Mustang GT has been slightly upgraded and puts down 303hp at the crank. This is the power the GT deserved. But whether it's bone stock, or a straight line speed freak, the 1997 Mustang GT is an amazing car we would recommend to anyone. You will not be disappointed!

I had a 1997 mustang gt 5 speed manual , premium ...... That model had leather , lights on the internal mirrors 460 mach sterio system. these thing alone made the car worhty on the inside . That was All stock ....it came that away ..... The power under the hood was decent ... I know 215 hp isn't that much ...but the car was light , and cut good in the wind . The handling was great . Don't judge any car by its hp until you drive it ...... I did with this car and now after owning it for 6 yrs , I would recommend it to any one who likes sports cars . The car was fun , and best bang for the buck .... Just understand ....any car you drive hard ......( DRIVING FAST ALOT, BRAKING HARD ALOT , RACING AROUND CORNERS ALOT , EVEN PLAYING FROM LIGHT TO LIGHT ) lol will break down after awhile .... That's any car . I love my 1997 mustang gt .... and if you like sports cars ...you 'll love this one .

I've owned German sports cars multiple times the cost, and they are not nearly multiple times the value. Mustang GT looks fantastic, esp convertible with top down, has plenty of power, sounds fantastic and really grips the road with its fat wheels. As a US made car, it's incredibly inexpensive to maintain. Get the premium sound system with speakers even in the window corners; it rocks!

Great performance value. I'm 6', and driver's seat track (elec) doesn't' go back far enough for ideal driving position. This cobra convertible is a "sunshine car" only, with a lot of bang for the buck: fully optioned, rare, and performance and handling exemplary a 16 year old car. A little thirsty for 92 octane, but I didn't buy it to baby it.

I've had my 1997 manual v6 3.8 liter mustang since 2006. While it has had it wear and tear over the years its currently going on over 220000 miles and is still holding up amazingly! She still drives just as well as whenever I bought her at 130000 miles. Regular maintenance is key.

I owned a 97 V-6 Standard Mustang, So much torque that the wheels will squeal even shifting out of 2nd Gear! It could of easily pushed 150 but the governor stops it at 120. Shifting out of 4th @ 112MPH with a whole gear to go! I challenged nearly everyone on the road and won. I would totally recommend this to anyone (who can pay the insurance haha!)
