roller

well not a whole lot,, lol,, it really depends on what it is.



for total stock, maybe 5-800 for a total stocker, I'm just gonna strip it out anyway.



or if it was, like tubbed out, had susp. work, rear-end set up good, maybe up to a couple thousand,, moneys tight ever where. but if I could get a real good deal, I might can work with that much.




or get a cheap stocker, and take about 2 years, to figure out , and get parts, an try an build one myself, Thanxs for your interest, tell me what you got Thanxs Rick

I have one with a cage, through the floor subframe connectors, race wing, tubular k member etc etc

$1,100 gets it. (the wing alone was about that price) I'm about an hour and a half south of Atlanta.

This car is a 88 or 89 I can't remember for sure, it will be a Bill of Sale only you can tag it in GA with that. There is a 7.5" rear end under the car I took the 8.8 off, It's an $1,100 car. The cage was custom done, it's not some back porch amateur welding work however the back two bars need to be added, it was cut out to do mini-tubs, the plates are still in place for use, remember it's a $1,100 car. The rear tubs have been cut, you just need to buy the tubs themselves ($115 +/-) install them and mount your crossbar for coil-overs if you choose to run them, did I mention it's a $1,100 car? There is also through the floor frame connectors that tie into a built solid seat mount, everything behind the dash has been gutted, it has an older style k-member that uses the factory a-arms (one coil spring is missing)-it may be inside of the $1,100 car. In the pix it's missing a headlight but I'm pretty sure it's in the car. There is a 5 lug conversion on the front. I can't hold the car for you as you've requested for me to, but it's been for sale but not really advertised for a while. I was holding it for a friend but it seems as if he hasn't gotten the $1,100 in a year and a half so I'll end up building it or selling it, makes me no difference really. The body is straight but there are a few dings over the drivers' side rear tire. The wing is riveted on, all the glass is good, I don't know if all of the lights are still wired up, the car has power windows but I don't know if they work truthfully I have no desire to check, the interior has all the panels, nothing else, no headliner, no carpet and I do not have them. The interior needs a real good cleaning. My shop is located exactly 2 miles from the Phenix City dragstrip.

here's some pix. I think I've answered all the questions you've asked. All the **** that's in it comes with it. I have no clue what's in those boxes. Maybe a million dollars, who knows.

If I go to the race track later on I will get pictures of the cage where it was cut and the tubs although the plastic pieces are back in place and nothing will be visible there via pictures unless you take the tire off. I'm sure you know that's not happening. The rear end and rear suspension is that of a stock Mustang, nothing special. It may have been for sale for a grand but it's an $1,100 car today. Truthfully if you're honest and have the know how it is a extremely good deal. If I paint the car finish the cage and tubs, put a seat in it an 8.8 and front and rear suspension it will be a couple thousands of dollars car just that quick. I really won't lose any sleep if you decide to purchase the car or not, I just offered to help.

hey guy's , I have had a couple good replys, on some rollers. one was Pat427, Great guy, went outta the way, and got digital. pics, sent over , so I could see it real good, Thanxs man, that was cool, an sorry bout wasting your time.. but man, I just dont have a ton, oh cash, to throw down, THE ROLLER, will prob sit, for 2 yrs on jack stands, before, I get the parts, and MONEY, to get the sub frames, roll cage , installed, maybe mini tub.



bottom line, I need a STOCK, even with the 7.5 rear, because, I cant afford, the fixed up rollers, , check that last one, very nice, dont get me wrong, ( no offense dude ) but 4500, I can't swing that,



man if anybody gotta stock, notch, let me know, I will even pull the eng. out, If you bring it to me,. and give it to you.


now that roller pat427 's got is sweet, if you looking for one that is it, its got 4:10's lake ? somethings, I donno, its too high dollar for me , Thanxs for putting up with me rambling on, help me find a good stock notch, Thanxs Rick

I bought a 91 lx with all 95 cobra suspension , gms control arms , every bushing in it polyurathane and all new brakes . Every single part was brand new on the suspension from ford except the rear control arms which were new from gms for 500 bucks and the car had never been driven !!!!

big block

Hey thats what I thought too. dude was kinda rude about it too. ya know. but pat427 has got a nice one, its an 86 with an 87-93 front clip, an dash, 8.8 lakewood ? , 4:10 gear, battery in back, 1/2 " fuel line run to front, nice welds all around, and he was cool about it. sorry I wasted his time.


I got a clean 88 gt, with an 91 eng we put in it, a couple yr ago, its got 70 thou on eng, Supposedly, from flea-bay, it runs out good, got welded sub-frames, max. motorsports upper/lower control arms, and a either 3:27 or 3:55 gear in it. I didnt wanna chop it up. so I'll just put the 460 in it, just the eng. and c-6 for now, and all intailed with that, I bout got everything I need, but a good swap kit, thanxs for your advice bb Rick
