1997 Cobra Mustang Specifications
1997 Cobra Coupe 2 1997 Cobra Convertible

Except for the front upper grille opening, the '97 Cobra was more or less unchanged.  The new opening brought more air to the new cross-the-board cooling system which could be found on the '97 Cobra.  Only the Cobra model Mustang had the new parallel-flow air conditioning condenser.
