Potential Project?

I saw this wrecked stang on the side of the road and stopped to check it out. It has deployed airbags and It's auto but if it's a project that can be changed. I was looking for a Fox or classic so idk...

Interior looks clean besides all the Axe body spray cans in the back...

$800 obo

Wait... 4 cyl? If I want a running Fox, I want a 5.0.

Re: Potential Project?

But you can always do the conversion. Me and my dad are going to look at a 4cyl Five speed later today that just needs a new water pump. Perfect for me so I can save on gas and have a candidate for a 5.0 after college

Re: Potential Project?

if the frame isnt damaged and all the body panels other than what you will change are good its probably worth around 800, offer 550 in cash.

If you want a fox buy a fox. 4 cylinder might be the best if you plan on spending money on it. 4 cylinder frames and bodies have less stress on them. 8 cyl conversions aren't bad.

Re: Potential Project?

my notch is a conversion.. i would offer 400..then move up to 500. any more than 500 and you can get one that's perfect that all u have to do is drop a v8 in it. i paid 1k for my 97 v6..its got 2k gt wheels and new tires and sunroof (yae for me!!), and a 5spd wit new clutch.

if you got pay more than 500, i think you could find one that needs less.

Re: Potential Project?

I would pass on that! Get the Fox and do the conversion, or get the 5.0. If I was you and really wanted a project car-- I would hang onto Layla for a little while longer and do the Fox body thing. Or scratch that idea and put the $$ into the new Mustang, because the Mod bug will hit eventually.

Re: Potential Project?

I'd offer no more than $650 unless its a gt but it looks to be a v6 and I wouldn't pay that much for it. I gave $1900 for my 94 but thats because I knew how it was treated and had just over 100,xxx miles on it.
