Default Canadian 91 GT Cobra???

Hello, Im writing because I had a 1991 Mustang gt. I thought the car was really fast for just being a 5.0L. So I found I had on my hands a 1991 Mustang Gt Cobra canadian...Yeah I said GT Cobra, I when to carfax to find out the history and it said 1991 Ford Mustang GT cobra made in canada.... I did research and found out it came with All options except the leather seats...I was keeping up with a 99 trans am LS1 and i thought it was strange since they are high 12/low 13 sec cars...The car also came stock with 3.55 gears.
All my car had was a cobra intake I thought was aftermarket but looked like it had been on forever...had the 65mm tb and a 70mm mass air....injectors where the 24pound....Im guessing the heads where GT40 if it was a real cobra engine...Well the car kept up with LS1's and would beat most LT1's....I would keep up with the ls1's til about 110 when they started pulling off because fo their gearing...

So I want to know if anyone else has ever heard of this...I sold that car and later on got me another stang a 1988 Gt but when I ran it thru carfax it came back as just a regular 88 gt.

I mean it must be rare because Carfax said it was a GT Cobra and the other Gt's just show up as GT.

Default RE: Canadian 91 GT Cobra???

Its not rare at all. Its the same as a GT.

Quote:
The term Cobra GT is found in 1984-1992 Canadian Ford sales brochures and other Ford-produced literature in place of the term GT used in U.S. Mustang literature. In addition, the words Mustang Cobra GT were also used on the window stickers of all 1984-1992 GTs sold in Canada. The term Cobra GT was a direct replacement for the word GT in Ford of Canada Mustang literature during this time period. Interestingly, no other Mustang models such as the L, GL, GLX, LX, LX 5.0L Sport or Turbo GT received a different name in Canada. Canadians report that this Mustang Cobra GT terminology is also used when registering and insuring these cars in Canada. Canadian owners have also told us that even though Ford did not call the 1982-1983 and 1993 Mustang GT's "Cobra GT's", this terminology mistakenly shows up for 1982-1983 and 1993 Mustang GT's in insurance databases.

The addition of the Cobra name leads many people to believe that these cars have additional performance equipment or special features over a regular U.S. GT, but that is NOT the case. The bottom line is 1984-1992 Canadian Cobra GTs are simply the Canadian version of the U.S.-sold 1984�1992 Mustang GT. The difference is in NAME only; there are NO fundamental differences between the Canadian and U.S. GT models. Performance-wise, the 1984-1992 Canadian Cobra GTs were absolutely no different than their American GT counterparts (including horsepower figures, available engines, transmissions and suspensions). This fact has been verified through a number of sources including the comparison of Canadian vs. U.S. Ford sales brochures and individual cars build sheets and window stickers.

I owned two GT Cobra Canadian cars(86,88). My understanding is the only difference between these cars and the US counterparts were the sticker that said Cobra on the car, metric instrumentation and Canadian emmissions equipment. Otherwise it is identical.
