Buy it.. hold on to it for a few months till I'm ready for another Coupe project and sell it to me for 300.. Ok? Sounds like a plan.

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

dang why can't I ever seem to stumble on those types of deals. Been debating building something new but heck the only mustangs I have found they guys still think that the non running fox bodies with rust are worth as much as a 64-1/2 (actually had one tell me that his price was cheap cause he has seen 40 yr old mustangs bring much much more. just laughed as I walked away.)
Not a bad looking project care though.

Owner has a 2nd buyer lined up.
She said she'd hold it for me but I may pass.

I have 6 cars and live in town. It may be a bad move domestically :evil: .

Ill go start it up Saturday and see how it runs.
Might make a nice daily for a while. Hate to drive it in snow though :?

Buy it for 300, clean it up real good, and sell it for a grand..Hand her the 700 bucks and say here "That 10 hours of work made you 700 bucks" That way she wont have any thing to say next time you bring another car home..

I was never a fan of new cars. It would make a nice winter beater, not as nice as a cheapy F-150/F-250 for a winter beater though. I bet a my old Falcon got better MPG than those Mustangs.

...

What do you mean I don't like Mustangs? I love Falcons!

And my personal favorite, a '62 Starliner that he put a dual quad 427 medium riser in... He has a Mustang for every yearit was produced up to '86. Including numerous Shelby's... Heck, he even has an all original Model-A that runs like a champ...

A 62 Starliner....? Never happen unless he owns one of 2 "Starlifts" built by Ford, one ran at Atlanta for one race only and then it was outlawed by NASCAR. Then FoMoCo used it to test the X-bolted mains in a couple of 483" FEs. Car[s] ran at Bonneville and set a bunch of records. No one seems to know what happen to the 2 Starlift Galaxies, probablly sent to the crusher when Ford was done with them. Sure its not a 60 or a 61 Starliner?
