I'm looking for a project car.

I'd like to find a 90-93 or up car.


Find a car that someone hasn't torn the torque boxes out of yet with no rust or dents less than 800.00?

Keep an eye out for local auctions.We have an auction here about every two weeks and the vehicles have to be lien free and they tell you if it has been a former total loss as well.Some auctions aren't run like this so it might be buyer beware there as you always have to keep in mind there is a reason the car is being sold at an auction.Another option is to run an ad in the local paper looking for a mechanic's special Mustang.My local wrecker has an ad in the paper stating they buy unwanted vehicles and it is amazing the vehicles they get for next to nothing with mechanical issues.Although it might be tempting to buy a vehicle that requires a lot of body work or has title problems it generally ends up costing more in the end.Also project vehicles generally go fairly cheap on ebay although it isn't too practical unless the seller is local and you can inspect it yourself. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/89-Mu...QQcmdZViewItem

That '86 sounds like a great deal. Can't beat a four-eye car, especially a coupe. You ought to jump all over that, Mr Jones! :lol:

Thanks for the offer, but I'm hoping to find a v8 notch and 87-93.

Nothing wrong with the 4-eyed cars. Just the 87-93 seem to have more parts avaliable. Plus if I can find a v8 instead of a 4 cylinder due to brake sizes and rear axle.

I was just wondering. I know alot of guys on this site have mustangs.



Now if someone knows where a SVO turbo 4 cylinder EFI car is I'd love to buy one of those.

I have an SVO. It has some minor dings from hail, but the body is straight and the interior is in decent shape (needs a dash pad, steering wheel recovered, and driver's seat repaired.) It is a Comp Prep car (no upper wing.) If you're going to swap in a V8, I'd come down on the price of the car if I kept the motor/trans. PM me if you're interested. I'm in western Arkansas.

Thanks

If I could find a turbo 4 cylinder car I would probably keep it like that. Me and my brother also mess around with turbo 4 cylinder cars. I was always impressed with the turbo 4's.

I'd like to say one thing.

I'm mainly wanting to get a feel. It takes me a long time to make my mind up on what I want to do.
