Good deal or not

I have a guy wanting to trade me his 87 Gt 5 speed it's in good shape he says no rust and runs and drives great, I am suppose to go look at it this week. Heater and ac have been disconnected so I am assuming that it will need a heater core, my bike is worth about 3500 does this sound like a good deal? Only mods are cai and rpm gauge. Thanks for your responses.

Nice..it looks good man. Check for rust..inside bottom of door, fenders, floors. If it runs and drives and you don't need the bike I say it's a deal.

Would looking underneath be good enough checking the floor pans or do I need to try and peel some carpet up?

In your opinions does it look wrecked at all? I have this same question posted on the corral and a couple guys keep telling me that the 5.0 emblems aren't correctly place and the hood looks tweaked, does anybody else see that because I don't but I could be totally missing it. I am going to look at it on Sat morning but just figured I would get your opinions on it also. Thanks

It does look like the badges are high to me. The hood looks ok, the hood pins that are added may be making it look off. I would suggest going over it completely with a fine toothed comb before you decide. I would look under the hood at the inner fenders. If there's any sign of damage, it'll be there if it was hit in the front. I would also look for rust underneath, bottom corners of the doors and around the lock mechanism on the hatch.

Yes they are. 87/88 are speed density unless you get an 88 from California. Those got mass air one year early. 87/88 are also the only years to get T-tops. Also the earlier foxes are nice because in states like here where you need a car to be 25 years old to register it as a classic they are all starting to hit that point. No emissions ftmfw.

It looks good from the pics but take some coveralls and get ready to get dirty. Take a tape measure, check the frame, check, the wheelbase, check everything. Look for rust, look for signs of drag racing or hacked up wiring, look for holes in the interior where stuff might have been mounted and just be a complete and total nazi about going through it. If the guy has a problem with this get on your bike and drive off.

Obviously do all the motor/trans/rearend checking stuff as well but honestly at this point starting with a clean body is much more desirable. Give me a very clean fox chassis with a blown motor/trans any day vs one that runs and drives but is ratted to hell and has rust issues. Its not like a 5.0 and T-5 is going to be very much money at all and you can pull and replace a motor/trans in a day easy.

My dad had an 88 GT with T tops.
