1998 Cobra Mustang Specifications
1998 Cobra Convertible 2
New wheels were the largest change for the 1998 Cobra.  These were identical to those used on the '95 Cobra "R", except the wheel cutouts were now painted grey.

New in the interior was a new leather pattern as well as the console being redesigned.  The clock pod that was found on previous years was removed, and the clock could now be found on the radio display.  A CD player was now standard.
