Re: looking at 2 stangs
The 88 sounds like a good car for 5500 if it's what they say it is. Keep us up to date.
I know my 83 is bad on the inside-bottom of the driver's side door, and I'm starting to find a couple of bubbles around the wheel wells, which is a pretty common area. I'd also crawl under the car with a flashlight and take a look around areas where the rear bumper is attached to the frame. It's another pretty common rust area I've found that most people don't really look at.
The pretty common that the good ol T5s don't always like to go directly into reverse if you don't know already - if you don't though, it's not a big deal, just have to shift it into first or 5th and then go back to reverse and it should slide right in.
