Default Scott Grant's 1998 SVT Cobra!

Hi Bruce


I sold my Buick and was looking for another car. I am always interested in original paint cars. This Cobra was listed on eBay and the seller had zero feedback . The photos and the description said it had been purchased new by the seller in Connecticut. It had the original paint , tires and battery. Stephen Minore , the Olds guy , lives nearby so I hired him to go look at it. He said it looked like a dusty brand new car.



The seller and I arrived at a fair price so I told him I would wire transfer the money the next day. Wire transfer day arrived and he raised the price higher. I told him he had one shot at it and if he tried to raise it again I would walk away from the purchase. Plycar went and got it and delivered it at 6:45 in the morning. I plan on driving it so put new tires and a new battery on it. NOS fuel pump and NOS brake rotors were put on it too. Oh , the mileage is now up to 1945 and it could easily pass for a two year old car.



Thanks Bruce !



Scott Grant

This Cobra will compete in the Unrestored Class , MCA . National Show in OKC and in Kansas City 2021. Original tires and battery will be installed back on it for those 2 National Shows. The level of competition there is always good.

Beautiful Cobra Scott! A good friend had a black one back in the day and let me drive it a few times. I almost cried when he traded it in on a 4x4 truck with less than 10k miles. Good luck at the show.

I have had 3 or 4 of these and love them. Last one I bought was original with 6000 miles and picked it up in Pensacola and drove it back to Houston. Comfy seats, silky smooth engine and good driveline with lots of power potential. Hopefully you replaced the 21 year old tires! Wish they came with a T56 6 speed though.

Brand new ZR speed rated BFG tires put on right after I got it. This is the engine that started the DOHC Cobras and Shelbys . No GT350R or GT500 could be around today without it! This is my sixth Cobra . Thanks.
