I REALLY HATE to do this......
But, I've decided to put the cpbra up for sale. Is this a good IDEA?? Ive got about 50 grand it, and I still have all the reciepts.
EVERYTHING in the car has been replaced with a few exceptions.
It's in cherry condition and has about 800 hp with the N.O.S.
The new 347 has about 500 miles and 2 track passes with no N.O.S. It has the performance automatic with reverse valve body, live lock amd brake.
HOW MUCH SHOUD I ASK FOR MY 1993 cobra? 64,000 miles

I think you would be hard pressed to get anything near what u put into it, it is a shame, it is apparently a badass car but the market for people buying bad to the bone hot rod cars is small

I have no clue what u could ask $20K????

I was thinking 20. But who in their right mind would pay 20g's for something that they could NEVER drive on the street? With some small work, you could get it street legal, but emmisions NO WAY! It runs on 116.:D :(
Im thinking about putting it in some ads in California.
You KNOW some rich bastard will like it.:confused: :D

the only way you may be able to get anymoney for it is to put the efi back in it, and put a used shortblock in it, and sell the car, and the parts seperatly.

Spend a couple thou, and get it back to stock, and then you could get 10-12 for the car, and 10-12 for all your parts.

Well if the car is in as good of shape as you say it is, I have never seen it but in the dark, so its hard to say, but if the car was totally bone stock, and in imaculate shape, ya, you prolly could pull 15k for just the car. Bone stock that is.

Why would you want to sell a car that you put all that time and money into for less then half of what it is worth? You should keep it.

OK, I guess I can trade 'ya some 23's for the Cobra...:D
Don't sell it just for that reason. I did that a while back with a car and a jet ski. Ended up buying both of them again (different/newer models), but I kick myself everytime I think about it.

KEEP IT! You will miss her!

I think you would be hard pressed to get what it's worth. I love
the 93's but could not afford one. My 98 was cheaper than most
93's and don't even try and get a bank to finance a 93. I think
they give you like 2 years to pay off anything older than 5 years.

Isn't there some insurance you can get for cars you hardly ever drive that is a lot cheaper? I thought I heard someone talking about it once. I think they have to drive less than 3K miles a year, but the rates were like waaaay cheap, and it sounds you drive less than 3K a year! Something to look into, but don't sell inless you absolutely have too!

I'm sorry to say this but I think you are a fool to sell that car for some bling on the yukon. Looks like it's already bling enough. If worse comes to worse... sell off your parts to buy your bling and put your cobra back to stock, put a car cover on it, and park it.
