Well... there must be two differences then. The yoke was hardened on the 93 Cobra, but I cannot find another difference online. I am not at home to check a couple books I have that would most likely answer the question.Nope..
FANTASTIC! :rocker:Give up?? LOL!!!!
This one was admittedly a tough one.. A really tough one. Visually, you could look at both driveshafts and draw the conclusion "they're identical".. But that begs the question, "why did Ford assign a unique part # to the Cobra driveshaft"? F3ZZ-4602-A.
Here's the answer...
After EVERY driveshaft is manufactured, it is spin-balanced.
The freshly made driveshafts vary in how well they balance-out on the first spin, prior to weights being applied.
For the Cobras, SVT "cherry-picked" driveshafts that fell within the upper-5% percentile of that range.
In other words, the best-balanced shafts requiring the least amount of balancing weight (if any) in order to balance were deemed "Cobra" and assigned the F3ZZ-4602-A part #.
Beyond that interesting nugget of knowledge, there is ZERO difference.
Beautiful car Robert! :surprise:The years I can remember right off hand are 1965, 1979 and 1994, there may be more? I recently sold a 1999 SVT calendar that showed those three years and featured the 1994 Cobra pace car..............Has there been any since 1994?
A picture from my archive...........
Of course the guy with a screen name “94cobrapace” would get it right!It was the 1964 that the Mustang first pace the Indy 500, then in 1979 & 1994.
I used this info. from a SVT calendar that I recently sold on eBay..........
It ended up that a 1999 Lightning owner wanted that 1999 SVT calendar for his collection - $45
I did not look deeply into the 1964.5 and 1965 thing............
2000 Cobra R had a 6 speed, Should be the first year for 6 speed.I have a trivia question that boss knows, since we’ve chatted about it before:
What was the first time FORD put a 6-speed transmission in a Mustang? (Post title Mustangs from Saleen/Roush/Shelby excluded.)
