Its been a while since I have been active on this forum. I used to own a 94 GT that I dropped in a 351w EFI. I sold the car a year and a half ago and missed it dearly. I found this Mustang and paid $2,000 for it. It needs some work to it but the structure is very clean. Has no rust anywhere.. I will be posting pics later today.

Thanks! I was a little concerned when looking the car over. I am looking at a $2000 car and yet I am still picky. I see rotted belt molding here, a quarter window that doesnt move well, and little things. A couple burned out bulbs..

Then I remember how old this car is and think to myself, hell this is in better condition then a lot of cars that are 10 years old. I will post more pics after work. I was looking under the driver side of the car and see black paint all over the bottom. My 94 wasnt even in this good of shape.

My only beef with it are the seats. It feels like I am sitting too high. The seats are manual but do have power lumber. I had a 90 GT vert but cannot remember if it was power or not. Just feels like the seats should sit a couple inches lower.

Looks damn good! Good buy!
P.S. I would put some 94+ black leather seats in there if it were me

Nice car, good find! Hopefully that's not a $400 Earl Scheib/Maaco paint job that will flake off in 6 months.

Thanks. I did find a spot up front that showed it was wrecked. It is in the fender apron. That is not good. That might explain why the nose doesnt line up perfectly. The headlights are off a little as well. I will be buying new headlights soon and will see if I can make an adjustments then.
