The 1994 Ford Mustang was a very big deal. After 14 years of the Fox body, the Mustang was given a comprehensive redesign that addressed every one of the Fox's shortcomings: improved handling, a stiffer platform, 4-wheel disc brakes, and an upgraded 5.0 liter V8 in the GT and Cobra models. As a result, the Mustang was chosen as the honorary pace car for the 1994 Indianapolis 500, and Ford delivered 1000 pace car replicas to its dealers. This particular '94 Mustang Cobra pace car is number 275 out of those 1000 produced, and shows only 24 original miles. Yes, you read that correctly, this is an as-new, 100% untouched, fresh-in-the-wrapper 1994 Mustang Cobra pace car convertible. Still on the MSO and never titled, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own what may be the lowest-mileage Mustang pace car on earth. These pace cars were instant collectibles, but for the collection that needs the very best, here it is. Dressed in classic Rio Red with a tan convertible top and tan leather interior, this Cobra is factory fresh in every imaginable way. Beautifully preserved and carefully stored in climate-controlled facilities since it was new, the highest praise we can give cars like this is that it is showroom fresh. The new-for-94 Mustangs were much better assembled than their Fox siblings, and it was designed from the beginning as a convertible, so it fits together extremely well and the doors close precisely with good gaps. It also gave a nod to Mustang history with such items as the Mustang mounted in the grille, the three-element taillights, and vents in the rear quarter panels. The clean design held up well for more than a few years, but for collectors, the one to own is the very first one. Like the body, the tan leather interior is exceptional. If you had picked up your car fresh off the delivery truck, this is what it would have looked like. The seat has had a handful of posteriors in it, but it's likely that even a new car on a showroom floor has had more, what with all the people trying it on for size. The comfortable buckets are wrapped in plastic, the floors are still covered with their factory-issued wrappers, and the floormats have never been used. Styling owes a nod to the past inside, as well, with a twin cockpit design that was still thoroughly modern, and cars like this Cobra came only one way: loaded. A/C, power windows, power locks, a power convertible top, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD player were all standard equipment. A $30,000 Mustang in 1994 was an awful lot of money, so Ford knew they had to make it special. Special also describes the engine. Based on the familiar 5.0 liter V8, it was revised in 1994 and gained a few horsepower in the process. A new Cobra-style intake manifold was lower profile in order to fit under the new car's hood, but the GT-40 heads and full roller valvetrain remained. One of the best-running small blocks of the era, the 5.0 is rugged, reliable, torquey, and in case you haven't been paying attention, friendly to modifications. But in the case of this pace car, everything is 100% stock, from the spark plugs and wires, to the air filter, to the grease pencil markings on the various components. The only notable change is a recent battery, because even on a car with just 24 miles, you can't expect a battery to last 17 years. The chassis, including the T5 5-speed manual and 3.08-geared 8.8-inch rear end, is spotless. No undercoating, no modifications, and everything is just as Ford assembled it. You can see that there's overspray on the floors, just like in 1965, and all the cast iron parts have been pickled at the factory, and look absolutely correct today. The original exhaust system shows no signs of rust, and it's likely that even the brake pads are original equipment. The Cobra received its own special 17-inch alloy wheels, and wore 255/45/17 Goodyears, which were a size larger than the 17s on the Mustang GT. Documentation is, as you would expect, extensive. Not only is the original window sticker still affixed to the side window, we also have the original MSO, SVT certificate, and invoice, as well as all the original owner's manuals and documentation that comes with a new Mustang. This is very likely the nicest, lowest-mileage 1994 Mustang in existence. Finding one that hasn't been raced and abused is hard enough, but one that is new in the wrapper, still on the MSO, and perfectly preserved is amazingly rare. If you are a serious Mustang collector, you can't overlook the revolutionary SN95 cars, which ushered in a new era of Mustang performance. The Cobra convertible is the top of the line machine, and with full documentation, this one is investment grade throughout. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
