    No vert Cobra in 93. I believe the first year SVT made a vert was 94

    Personally, I would hesitate to deal with a used car lot that tells you a 93 GT Vert "might" be a Cobra.

    Get a build sheet from Ford, provided you can obtain an accurate VIN.

    I know a guy that bought an ASC McLaren Mustang from a used car dealer that thought it was a GT. Needless to say he got it for ~$10k less than it was worth.

    Funny how it can work both ways.:shrug:
