'79 Notchback with Capri fenders and rear 1/4.

I got this car from a friend of my father-in-law, here's what I know about it:

- It was originally a 1979 mustang Ghia
- It's got a recently rebuilt carb'd 5.0
- It has either a 3350 or 3550 Tremec transmission
- The previous owner said it has 3.73s
- It has had capri body panels added on
- It has short-tube headers
- Off-road H pipe
- Aftermarket exhaust (not sure what though)
- Autometer Tach
- Fat&Skinny welds (4 lug)
- MSD
- No A/C, Heat, or Power steering
- It's pretty fast, but I haven't taken it to the track

I wanted to make it into a driver, but I have a new baby and I won't have the time. It drives fine right now - probably could use a tune on the carb and a brake job. I drive it to work sometimes and it's fine.

I'll take $2,800.

Here are pics:

Key, if it isn't a problem could you please post or email me a couple other pics of the interior, engine bay as well as detailed pictures of the entire car and undercarriage? Is there any rust on the car, dings, dents? Is the rearend a 8.8 or a 7.5? Does the car have a manual steering rack, or has the power steering just been taken off? Do you have the rest of the interior to complete the car? Also are the body panels aligned correctly from what you can tell?

Did you get the car started alright? I remember reading that you could only get the solenoid to click.

I really like the car but want to make sure it's exactly what I'm looking for before trying to work out a deal.

Thanks,
Lucas M.

The car starts fine, but something is draining the battery, so I have the neg. cable detached.

Tell me how to tell and I'll look. I thought those were fuel injected??

I'm considering taking trades as well, so if anyone has a daily driver (like an old civic or something), let me know!

That's fine, I just wanted to make sure you had seen everything available online first so you didn't come over to Jeffersonville for nothing. I'd hate for you to come all the way and then not like it because of something that was shown in the pictures..

I'm going to PM you my cell #. Call anytime tomorrow, maybe you can come see it this weekend.
