How much is a shell worth? 2004 cobra

Asked by Sep 23, 2019 at 11:50 AM about the 2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

I have a 2004 yellow cobra terminator that is just a
shell, no engine or transmission. How much is the
shell worth? The car is in excellent condition with
only 50,000 miles on it.

It's a Mustang and it's a 2004. Don't get caught up in the hype of old Mustangs or real Cobras. Without a drive train, you have nothing more than a used Mustang without engine & transmission. With fifty thousand miles and complete, it's probably worth $22,000 in excellent condition. Subtract $10,000 for the missing engine & tranny. Then try to fond someone willing to pay that for what you have. My guess, you'll end up getting about $7,000.


That is optimistic. I am guessing less than a grand. This generation Mustang is not going to be a classic.


There is only one way to settle this. Put it up for auction on Ebay or bring a trailer.
