Thinking about selling my foxbody

ive been thinking about selling my 93 lx and buying a mustang from 94-99. preferably a 94or95 5.0.
im wondering whats a good asking price for my car with the following mods: 347stroker, b303 cam, gt40heads, edelbrock high rise intake manifold and 4 barrel carb, petejackson gear drive, holly fuel pump, new kybs in the back, gauges, rear tubular control arms, 3.73 gears, 5inch cowl hood, o/r h pipe and slp loudmouths. 93 lx, 83,xxx miles.

im trying to either sell for money for or trade for a 94 cobra all original besides a bbk offroad h pipe with flowmasters and gt seats, but it comes wit the original h pipe and seat(but seats are beat up)

any owners of a 94 or 95 cobra? are they worth the money?

I agree. Nice to have one u can put your own time and effort into and be able to really appreciate each and every mod. Keep in mind though that unmodified n unmolested stangs are far and few between. Good luck finding a ride

You don't have any viewable on your profile. Just make a album or put some on here.

Re: Thinking about selling my foxbody

IMO, it will take some paint and shiny wheels to get it into the price range you desire. Also, for some the conversion to carburetor is a plus and for others it is a minus.


Your mission is to find that person who desires what you have and that has the money to purchase it. Sometimes this happens quickly, other times it takes some time.


I once sat on a truck that I was trying to sell for 3 years.
Being the bullheaded and stubborn person I am, I set my price and stuck to it.
Then one day along came a prospective buyer with cash in hand.
Within minutes and a short test drive later he was the proud new owner.

^he makes a good point. It's all about getting the car in the best condition and making everything sound.

For myself if I ever see a carb mustang 87 and up I just keep on looking. That for me is a turn off it's just in the person wanting to buy.

Me too.
I spent the formative years of my mechanical madness working on balky, irritating carburetors and I have no desire to go backwards at this point. That's just a personal preference, because some people like and prefer them over the intricacies of EFI.


I have seen a set of fancy wheels and shiny paint sell more cars than anything else.
I even bought a "paint job & wheels" car myself once.
Key word there being "once", since I soon learned the rest of the car was junk.

$5k is a pretty common price in my area for a modded Fox Body, with some examples exceeding $10k when extensively modified.
Whether or not they sell at the $10k level is unknown to me though.


My 86 GT was originally priced at $12k when I purchased it 10-12 years ago.
At the time that was way to high.
Over the next few weeks after I first discovered it I would call back and ask the price.
It kept dropping and when it hit $6k I went to talk with the dealership who had it.
I ended up buying it for $5250 because they thought it had a head gasket leak and that the rearend was going out of it.
All that was actually wrong was an antifreeze leak from a vacuum cap they used to cap off one of the nipples that fed coolant to the TB adapter and the rearend issue ended up being that it had an Auburn Pro differential which popped when turning or backing up.
A couple of pipe plugs and some friction modifier later and I was happily driving it around trouble free within an hour or two of its arrival at my house. My face looked like this for some time afterwards.

Take some detailed pictures and make a good list and list it on eBay. That would be your best bet just put your reserve at what you think it is deserving.

It sucks because when people sell cars they consider what they have put into the car money wise. I learned that everything (money) you put in you won't get back.

Like right now I'm prolly going to buy this incomplete project that Is selling for 10k and the motor alone is 7k. Just because it's incomplete and he won't get 30k that the cars worth.
That's just my personal example.

Be careful with eBay.My son in law advertised a custom made golf cart with them for like $3k, it did not sell and they still charged him $75 for the listing.

They must not of read something right. I list stuff all the time and haven't had to pay anything more than the listing fee if I sold it or not.

It all just depends on what someone is willing to pay for it. I mean if you have a set price you want to stay at, price it a little higher so they think they are getting a deal and it looks like your coming down in price. Like Trojan said, you see people selling fixes for a premium but that doesn't mean they are actually getting the asking price.

You can have all the mods in the world but it's only worth what someone else wants to give for it. :/
