1985 Mustang Coupe For Sale $2,300


<edit update>
Ok, need to get rid of this car and will take it in the shorts. Please don't ask to go lower than what I'm listing it at. The transmission alone is almost worth what the total is.

New price - $2,300

Trust me - if you heard this thing run and don't buy it, you will kick yourself! I have no place to keep it when I get rid of the storage unit I'm renting (this month).

This thing was made to look like a POS to run 24hrs of Lemons.

Including an aluminum driveshaft and Pro 5.0 shifter (both not installed)

History - this car was originally a 4cyl car with a 4spd manual tranny and 7.5 rear. Fast forward 1.5 years.

The motor came out of a fuel injected Mustang a couple years ago and has approximately 30k miles on motor.

It's not pretty, but this was the original intent with the car to begin with. Ask me about why and you will understand. The motor was painted to look old and nasty, but is very "bling".

Body is in excellent shape, but does need to be sanded and painted.

This car is so much fun on the open track and do have some videos of it beating up on real race cars and other not so much real race cars. Can also be converted to drag racing with spring, strut and shock change. Super fun and this thing screams!!

I was able to add some pictures to my gallery.

Woot! Can post pics now.

Again, the motor was painted with the intention of making it looks really <cough> old.
