1981 Mustang in Michigan (Metro Detroit)

Hi guys, I'm selling my 1981 mustang to start another project.

This car runs perfectly. No problems with fuel pressure, starting, oil pressure, starts up every time first try (and this is a carb car). It's fast, looks good, and I get compliments on it every time I take it out. There is well over $15K invested in this car. Cars odometer only has about 90,000 miles on it, unsure if it ever rolled over - but by looking at the body, I doubt it. Underside of the car is not rotted out.

List of Mods:

-302 Motor, bored .030 over to 306.
-Decked Block
-Work done to stock heads
-Flat Top Pistons
-Moly Rings
-X-303 Roller Cam
-Wiand Stealth Chrome intake
-Holley 750cfm Carb (rebuilt in 2015)
-Melling double row timing chain and gears
-Accell 10.8 race wires
-Heddman long tube headers
-120gph electric fuel pump
-Electric Fan
-New Radiator
-Deep Canton Oil pan
-Melling Oil pump
-New dump exhaust (car no longer has side pipes as of 2015)
-Eaton Detroit Truetrac Rear locker with 373 Rear Gears. (new in 2015. Speedo calibrated correctly. Entire rear end was rebuilt. New seals. New bearings. Everything new.)
-Tubular upper and lower rear control arms (2015)
-Weld in subframe connectors (2015)
-New starter (2015)
-New starter solenoid (2015)
-New battery cables (2015)
-New ignition box (2015)
-New Accel coil (2015)
-New Distributor Cap (2015)

-White Face Gauges
-New Carpet
-Pony Floor Mats
-New Headliner
-New Heatercore
-New weatherstripping on each door and rear hatch
-Hurst Shifter/Hurst baseplate (2015)
-New CD player/Bluetooth radio (2015)

-Boss 429 reproduction hood scoop (functional)
-Full five lug conversion done the right way in 2015 (car was aligned after):
...SN95 spindles and hubs, cleaned and repainted
...New Rear Axles
...brand new SN95 calipers (powdercoated red)
...brand new drilled/slotted rotors
...brand new ford racing adjustable proportioning valve
...SN95 Master cylinder
...Brand new 18x9" in front, 18x10" staggered bullitt wheels with Sumitomo tires
...Brand new SVE lowering springs

The Bad.. for a 35 year old car with original paint, there's very few:
-The car needs paint and very small rust repair (very small. VERY small.) All of it can be easily fixed with a competent body man doing the paint.
...Rear hatch has small bubble of rust in passenger side corner
...Rear pillars have less than 1/4" bubble of rusting starting to come through
-The Tachometer works, but only works up to 2000rpm, then stops there
...good news is I have a replacement tach, haven't installed yet - will come with car, as well as an ...upgrade LED kit with white lights to help with dim lighting
-The Tires in the rear have some rub marks on them from when car was initially lowered and taken for a test ride to find out that I needed to roll fenders - they're rolled now and fine.

$8500 FIRM. Paint it over the winter and cruise all next summer. Call Will at 586-596-7446
