1996 Ford mustang?need help?

To make a long story short i have been wanting a mustang for a while and a couple of days ago i saw a 96 down at a buy here pay here lot for 1200 dollars down but its got 220,000 miles on it.And i thought to myself wow what a ripoff but i have been looking all over the place and i can't find a mustang anywhere cheap even around that year and every one i see around 94-98 has the same miles and cost about the same.so i have three questions.1.are mustangs realy that reliable that they can last that long 220,000 miles.2.if i do decide to get the mustang for 1200 down how long will it last me before i have to put a new motor in it based upon an estimation of how long mustang engines last.3.I oriuginaly wanted a gt so i was thinking all i would have to do is drop a gt engine down in it and put leather seats from another gt change the tires and put a good stereo in it and turn it into a gt but would this work would a 4.6 fit in a 96 6 cil mustang?need serious answers please...

KEEP LOOKING should be about 1200 total not 1200 down at 220,000 its about all used up even if its had expert care its time for some major work car is not Worth the money to keep repairing

All I can say is 220,000 miles is a lot for any car engine.Not to mention the transmission,steering system,suspension and so on.The only problem is you will either spend a little for an older car and put money into repairs or spend a lot on a new or almost new car and have higher payments with less worry about repairs because of the warranty.The choice is for you to decide.
