Lemme first say, this is not my dream car. I hate autos, and I don't like convertibles. But this was a deal I simply could not pass up. This car runs fantastic. It had a massive cold air intake. Header back dual exhaust that sounds incredible. Nice american racing wheels. Big ole cowl hood. And a B&M Hammer ratchet shifter. The car is completely rust free, and drives great. Literally zero issues in that respect. It will tear it's z rated tires off like that's what it was built to do. The only thing the "freedom machine" needs, is paint and a new back window. Again...vert problems. And I bought this car a year ago for......nope you're wrong. $800 bucks. My mechanic was speechless. Zero rust, needs nothing mechanically, and I can roast it's tires all day long. Oh yeah....and the odometer broke at 74k which they love to do, but it was last registered before I bought it at 72k, so it still has less than 100k on the clock. So, my question to you....what do I do with it now?

If it runs perfect and roasts tires your looking good. I would save my money for tires because you will be roasting them. You dont want to be like a lot of guys that start modding things and then it does not run. Too many times guys fool with there cars then they mess up. I dont fix anything till its broke. Because they break. New top, and paint is what I would do thats six grand. Thanks for joining , and putting pictures up

SELL IT!!!!!! LOL I love that you HATE VERTS as much as I do. We can sell both yours and mine as twins. GT/3.H8 Combo Pack

You are not really too far from me either.

1996 Ford Mustang 8 Cylinders X 4.6L FI SOHC 280 CID
LICENSE PLATE: PA KSH8837

Id give you the $800 for it LOL,

All I see here that it would need is 1 trip to a Pull-A-Part to grab a Manual Trans and then its good.

But really, I would give you $800 for it

I don't mind verts. Gives you a niche market if you spend the money right. Been sitting on this one for awhile. Rolling again and already getting some offers. Just another view.
