This 1994 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Pace Car convertible is one of 1,000 examples built to commemorate the Mustang’s selection as the pace car for the 1994 Indianapolis 500 and was acquired by the seller in September 2021. It is finished in Rio Red Tinted Clearcoat over Saddle Indy leather upholstery and powered by a 302ci V8 mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a Traction-Lok rear axle. Equipment includes a Saddle convertible soft top, 17″ SVT Cobra wheels, a rear wing, fog lights, a rear window defroster, cruise control, keyless entry, air conditioning, and a Mach 460 audio system with a CD player. This SVT Cobra shows 6 miles and is now offered at no reserve in New Jersey with a window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, an SVT certificate, a Deluxe Marti Report, memorabilia, spare parts, an accident-free Carfax report, and a clean Montana title in the name of the seller’s LLC.
All Indy 500 Cobra Pace Cars are finished in Rio Red Tinted Clearcoat and are equipped with a Saddle soft top with a heated glass rear window. Features include Cobra fender badges, a rear wing, dual exhaust outlets, and a Cobra-specific front bumper cover with circular fog lights.
Aluminum 17″ five-spoke Cobra wheels wear 255/45 Goodyear Eagle GS-C tires. Spring and damper rates were softened in comparison with the contemporary GT, and a thicker sway bar was fitted in the rear to counter understeer. Stopping power is provided by anti-lock disc brakes at all four corners.
The cabin features power-adjustable front sport seats upholstered in Saddle Indy leather along with a two-tone dashboard and door panels. Amenities include air conditioning, cruise control, a Mach 460 audio system with a CD player, and power windows, mirrors, and door locks. Various components of the cabin are covered in protective plastic wrapping.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel fronts white-dial instrumentation consisting of a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, voltage, and oil pressure. The six-digit mechanical odometer shows 6 miles.
The 302ci V8 features electronic fuel injection and was rated at 240 horsepower and 285 lb-ft of torque when new. The Special Vehicles Team achieved a 25-horsepower increase over the base Mustang GT by decreasing restrictions inside the intake and exhaust manifolds as well as fitting larger valves, a strengthened valve train with roller rockers, and a lightened flywheel. An oil change was performed in preparation for the sale.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission and a solid rear axle with a Traction-Lok differential. Additional photos of the underbody are presented in the gallery.
The window sticker lists an initial delivery to Sentry Ford of Medford, Massachusetts, along with colors, standard and optional equipment, and a total price of $26,845. Manufacturer’s literature, a Deluxe Marti Report, and memorabilia are included in the sale.
The Ford certificate presents the car as #637 of a build of 1,000 and lists an assembly date of April 6, 1994.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Montana. A manufacturer’s safety recall regarding the park brake control assembly was issued in December 2000.
