88-89 5.0

I was driving by a local car dealership when i saw a blue 5.0 and went and looked at it and there was a little rust due to salt on the road and some dents on the unibody. The guy said $1731 for it. Is this worth it?
Thanks

sounds very cheap to me... most people selling 5.0s ask 3 times what they are worth.

only if you look at online/etc places.. in reality you can find a very solid mustang fairly cheaply.. (but you have to check out cars on the side of the road, and wait til the right one rolls around)

Re: 88-89 5.0

Well I just got my 5.0 today for $1500, only thing wrong is that the speedo and Odometer dont work, and the dash lights are out, radiator has a leak but I am gonna get that fixed next week. Runs great, transmission leaks but I was given another one with a TC and shift kit that doesnt leak. Oh and the wing is gone on the hatch. I have had it for an afternoon and it is calling me from the parking lot.

What i want to know is, why 1731? Why not 1700, or 1750?

If it has too much rust on it then I would pass.
