Default FS: 03-0211 S281 Cobra coupe

Reluctantly have decided to sell my 2003 Saleen Cobra 03-211. This is one of six 2003 Saleen Cobras coupes and one of two in Redfire. I looked for one of these Terminator Saleens for a few years and bought it off of this site. The car is in great condition and rarely driven, currently showing 8100 miles. Paint is nearly perfect, the only flaws are a couple of small stone chips on front air dam. Car comes with the eagle one kit and an unused key fob. There is a smaller pulley on the blower and car was retuned making 463 RWHP, can easily be put back to all stock. Asking $42,000.

Thanks. It was great seeing so many Saleen's there that year and the weather was as good as it gets there. Getting Steve to sign it was a giant bonus.

Several people have contacted me about the car and asked for more pictures and info. Below are pictures of Saleen Authentication letter, original window sticker, SVT certification, interior and engine. Included are original parts, pulleys and injectors, if you want to put it back to stock.

Curious question- did all the Cobra conversion cars have 5 speed transmissions? Not knowing much about these, I would have thought they would have retained the T56 6 speed. Thanks, and beautiful car by the way.

The Termileens all retained the Cobra 6 speeds. The Saleen letter is incorrect, never tried to get it corrected.

Nice car for sure. I'd very very much like to have it as I'm in the market to rebuild my wrecked 95 or buy an 04 terminator ( over 700 hp) for 24-27k. Dang I'd love to have yours and will try my best to see what I can do. If it has a nice cammed lope that will definitely make it easier to convince me :)

Any vids of idle and or driveby's?

Sorry no drive-bys or video. It is a nice sounding Terminator with the Saleen Borla exhaust.

more pics of the interior and few different angles, rear side, getting a look at the different stances would help if you get time.

Interior black or gray? Hard to tell rather the sun has it looking grey or not

Thanks

1998 was the final year for a black interior from Ford for a Mustang. 1999-2004 had charcoal as the darkest interior color available.

Do you think you will get more than what I offered at Auction? Not being smart just wondering.

I basically have not tried to sell this car in almost a year, but I have rarely driven it in the past year, it is still only about 8200 miles. If anyone is interested please let make me a reasonable offer. Asking $38000
Randy

Looks like a nice car. Did you buy it from Jeff when he sold his collection a few years back?

What a deal on a rare Saleen. I too have a Saleen Cobra ( 2001) that is on the market. I wish I had an extra garage space. These
Saleen Cobras don't come up for sale often. Good luck on the sale.
