Well I bought the 93 teal,faded paint and clear peeling Mustang. It has black 4 cyl interior. Drivers seat is faded rest looks good. manual windows. All stock suspension but new Napa shocks, struts and 4 cylinder springs. Converted to 5 lug. LS1 out of a 98 Trans Am and 4l60E tranns with Yank converter 3200. Has AJE crossmember, headers and a small cam. Now whats cool is that he made all the stock gauges work, a/c and p/s. Inside it looks bone stock, with the nitrous gauge and fuel pressure gauge in the glove box. Car in full street trim (small drag radials runs 11:80s na. no nitrous pass yet. This is in the heat of the day and on 235/60/15 BFG drag radials. I drove it all day yesterday and its an animal. Runs like a stocker till you hit the gas pedal. Sounds different as it has stainless Borla exhaust.
heres a few pics

Love the reef blue coupes! 11:80's n/a is a stout street car for sure.

When does it get the squeeze at the track?

6500, I was on here before asking if that was a fair price. yep he even made all the stock gauges work and the p/s. He has had this car for 7 years, one of the few and first back then to do a LS1 car

Can you get some details about the A/C setup? I bet I know the answer, but does the car have a front swaybar?

I'll have to ask about the a/c on how he set it up. I know the hose to the GM compressor he went to a hydralic hose place with the Ford end and GM end and told them what he needed. No swaybar on the car, if I remember right you can add spacers to where the bar bolts too and then run a shorter link.

nice man, it should go faster then 11.80 once you get it dialed in. I would say 11.50s for sure with a good 60'.

most likely gonna sell the stuff off. Picking up tubular uppers & lowers in about a week or so.

What are you doing with the rims and tires currently on the car?

leaving it in drive and a small burnout to just clean the tires it went
7.406 @ 91.03 mph with a 1.627 60' time 1/8th mile.
my daughter went 7.70's @93. with I think 1.9 60' time. She just goes to the start and eases into it. No burnout, just an easy pass. For a 16 year old she did great. The fastest she went before was 9.60's, and she is so hooked. lol
she was asking all about the nitrous and when can we use it! I'm in trouble.

7.4 puts you at about an 11.50 1/4. Sounds right on to me.
