FORD MUSTANG COBRA-JET
The 2006-08 boom in muscle-car values had little effect on prices for locally-owned Mustangs. It was therefore possible to buy a decent lump of US performance for the price of a fairly sad XA Falcon GT and this Cobra-Jet Mustang was a great choice. Ford’s ‘street-spec’ 7.0-litre engine delivered just 250kW (against 400+ said to be available from a Boss 429) but it was still a rapid way of moving a Mustang that by 1970 had packed on a bit of beef. The car looks to remain LHD and viable therefore on the world market where 1970 CJs often exceed US$80,000.
