Exclamation Hi guys, im new and soon to purchase my bosses' 1995 Ford Mustang 5 Speed, 5.0

It has 110,000 miles, he took great care of it, he has euro taillights(whatever),upgraded stereo,and upgraded speakers, ENGINE and ENTIRIOR IS SUPER CLEAN, color is turqoise(ugh, paint job will be changed later on), what im thinking is should I buy it? He told me 4G's, should I do it? And also im saving up money so RIGHT away i have money to get a Cold Air Intake(let me know which is one of the best kinds),Exhaust(Ive looked around and I saw good stuff about American Thunder Flowmaster?),Throttle Body(Ive looked on eBay and stuff, and for the 5.0, I saw 65MM,70MM,and 75MM, whats the difference and which should I get),than Headers(Have no clue what kind is good for the Mustang), anyways im really excited but all i need to do is get a Front bumper for my 92 Celica GT-S, and I will sell it for 2G's, but Id love to hear from every single person on this board, and let me know if its a reliable car? He says he had no problems at all with it, and he recently changed the clutch with warranty(good thing because I dont know how to drive stick yet, i just turned 18), SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

Sounds like a fair price. And yes, the 5.0s are very reliable. They have been known to run well into the 200k+ mile range.

things will mess up on them of course but they are so cheap to fix its not a problem... compare that to buying an import and when something breaks you are out a TON of money.

Save some of that money to replace the clutch alot of new stick shift users pretty much destory the clutch while learning. Remember the simple things .Don't ride the clutch , Put it in neutral at traffic lights Good luck with the 5.0

i dont see how people mess up a clutch so fast even if they are new to driving a manual... after the first couple days you should be capable of driving it normally.... oh well

So you think 4G's is fair? Also like I said he got a new clutch and theres a warranty, so i might just take it back after I learn anyways. As soon as I get it, I will post pictures, and ask you guys about Cold Air Intakes,Throttle Body,Exhaust,Headers.

Cool Re: Hi guys, im new and soon to purchase my bosses' 1995 Ford Mustang 5 Speed, 5.0

HI I'm new here too but just so happens I have a 95 GT and I gave 4 for it and it was haveing problems staying running when I bought it the guy I bought it from wasn't much on cars and he had taken it to several mechs that replaced everything but what was going bad. It was the hall effect sensor in the distributor a grand total of about 16 dollors at the local auto zone but the car has close to 155000 mile on it so for about a hundred bucks I put a rebuilt distributor in it because I figured the bushings had a lot of wear at that milage. There wasn't but I already had the distributor. so within 10 minutes I had it in and took the old one back for the core charge. I love my 95GT The side vents and the way the groove leading into it is more like my old 68 I once had and the dash and consol favors it a lot just more modern but all and all there nothing like driving a stick it youll pick it up in no time and if its a new ford clutch it will hold up to alot of abuse I have friends that pure out dog the heck out of there fox body stangs and was well over 100000 miles before thay ever thought of changing it out. Mustangs in general are really built Ford Tough.

I think you should go for it, I wouldn't mind picking up a 5.0/speed 94-95 in that price range If I could get rid of my truck. Learning to drive a stick really isn't that hard. I learned to drive mine in a day because I needed the car to get to school and work and could drive it with confidence in a week or so.

Sounds like a good idea to pick it up, to me, 4k seems a little bit much. but im not like all the other board members who knows everything about the mustang. I would try to see if your boss would sell it for 3k-3.5k. just my $.02.

its hard to say whats a good price on an older mustang... people want WAY to much money.. and some see people selling them for tons of money (great cars) so they decide to sell their rusted out POS for that to ... and some ****** winds up paying it...

Depending on the condition of the body and interior, $4k is about market value of a 94-95 gt from what I've seen. Its worth a shot to offer him $3k or so, he might take it or close.

Re: Hi guys, im new and soon to purchase my bosses' 1995 Ford Mustang 5 Speed, 5.0

I worked 53 hours this week, so thats 40 regular hours which is like 240$, and 13 hours overtime, so i should get a big daddy check, this is the most hours ive worked in a week so hopefully i will see 400$ this week, and will make a 350$ deposit, than i will have 1100$ saved up, i Just need to find a fricken front bumper for my 92 Celica GT-S so I can sell it, because with the bumper it pretty much screws up the entire "look" of the car.

Smile Re: Hi guys, im new and soon to purchase my bosses' 1995 Ford Mustang 5 Speed, 5.0

Well guys, guess what? I got in a car accident, and since nobody was hurt me and the other driver, the cop just wrote each others info, and gave us copies, the other driver even said it was his fault and it was, he was in a turning lane, and i was in the right lane going the opposite direction, and he went to turn after the car that was in the left lane, and LITERALLY turned right in front of me, and i slammed on my breaks but i was still going to hit him, so i tried swerving in the left lane, but i hit hit back right with my front right, my entire front end is SOOO Messed up, and I screwed up a little more with my friend, the passenger side door cant even open because of the fender, the hoot all the lights are messed up, but the news is, THE INSURANCE DOESNT KNOW THAT MY CARS FRONT BUMPER AND FOGLIGHTS were CRACKED, so the KBB price for my car is 3,600$, but i just got a exhaust, and it has a cd player,upgraded speakers, new tranny, spend like 1500 on it to get it running good, I believe I will get 4G's+, I have exactly 1000.56$ in the bank, so as soon as I get the check, the sooner I get the 95 5.0 GREAT condition for 4G's, and with the other 1G, all for parts BABY!

P.S:The mustang has like 111,000miles,how long do you think it will last?(Tranny And Engine?),It has a new clutch and everything interior and engine wise is in GREAT condition.

Re: Hi guys, im new and soon to purchase my bosses' 1995 Ford Mustang 5 Speed, 5.0

If you take care of it, that 5.0 can go over 250k miles. I know a guy thats been running his 89 GT hard for as long as I can remember... its got like 310k miles on it and it still has full compression in all cylinders. If you take care of that motor it'll go forever, as for the tranny... eh, its a t5, its cheap to rebuild

rebuilding a T-5 is like pissing in the wind. it wont last 6 months and for 400 dollars more you could have gone TKO
