1988 GT question.

Is a 88 GT supposed to have electric fans? I just picked 1 up and it has a clutch fan.

If the frame is straight and it has no rust issues it should be saved. And being an 88 you should be able to register it as a classic in any state so no emissions. At least not around here. Maybe in smog Nazi California you still have to smog classics. Dunno.

They don't check emissions in Vermont. Not really sure about the frame didn't really check it over much I just wanted the drive train. It does have some rust where it got in a accident a year or so ago. But I do hate to scrap a Stang even though my wife hates the fact we have 5 right now lol.

I'll come take one off your hands. I for one do not think red is your color or go with the feng shui of your home and will do you the favor of removing it from the premises as long as you pay for my hotel and fuel

If it's registered as a classic isnt there a yearly allowable mileage?

NJ DMV told me otherwise. They said their "historic" plates have a cap of 1500 miles or something crazy like that.

In VT I think you can only drive the car to shows or for maintenance with classic plates. Basic registration is 70.00 here so it's not to bad anyway.

I know collector insurance is 3000 miles per year in nj. Doesn't matter anyway you have a mechanical gear odometer. Just roll it back for inspections or have a spare one you swap out every inspection day.

You better make sure that frame is straight before you spend any money on it.

I'm sure it will need to be straightened it seems to go down the road straight but it was hit hard. Good thing most parts are cheap for these years because I need a truck load full!

Depending on how much you get it for you might want to use it as a donor car and find a clean old person 4 banger to turn into a GT.

I thought about doing that but I found out this car was built for someone that ended up dying from cancer. I was diagnosed back in February with lymphoma and found out I was officially in remission the day before I got this car. So I'd really like to bring it back to life.

Thanks It's going to take a while. I plan on buying parts this winter and as soon as the snow melts the fun will begin.
