1995 SVT Mustang Cobra

By 1995, the Ford Special Vehicle Team and its products were an unqualified success, so to further develop the Ford performance brand, all SVT models now wore special SVT exterior badging. This was the final year for the Mustang’s venerable 5.0-liter V-8, long the preferred choice of Ford performance enthusiasts. Coupe versions of the Cobra were offered in Black, Red and White. To enhance the exclusivity of the Cobra Convertible, which was available only in Black, a removable hardtop option was offered. As the one and only year of the convertible hardtop experiment and only 499 of the 1,003 droptops built leaving the factory with the optional hardtop, those cars are considered by some collectors to be among the most desirable SVT Cobras ever made.
