got this for $300!

Since my old GT was pretty well beyond repair, my search was on for another foxbody. Three weeks ago I got a text, asking if I had any interest in a 92 mustang that was in storage and for sale, asking price was $300! I agreed to buy it sight unseen. Here's what I got, 92 coupe ex-4cy roller. I just put my 8.8 under it, and wheels. This is going to be a 5.0 single turbo, blowthrough carb on E85.

Frame is bent, unsafe at any speed. You should ship it to me.

Wow, great find.

Now you should have lots of money left over for a nice 351w stroker.

this is going to be one of those stock block 5.0 turbo builds that runs 9.90's, or it will just come unglued while idling in the driveway. Either way I'm just going to take my time building this car, I'll be sure to update my progress.

Damn good find. Glad you're putting it back on the road.
