I'm not a fan of the doors either, and the paint I would change to black, but I mean it's cheaper than my work in progress foxbody

I'd buy it and put the factory door hinges back on replace/paint the ugly interior parts and then paint the outside and it would be a awesome looking stang.

Yeah, not a fan of this one. WAY too overdone. The lambo doors are always a no unless it's an actual lambo. PASS!

All these reasons are reason why he should buy it to save it....this car needs a real enthusiast to fix all that is wrong with it.

Re: Should I buy This??

Just to paint it black is gonna cost you a bunch due to having to pull the motor and paint the engine bay, unless you have a hook up.I dont see how this car would be cheap to put back to normal.

Re: Should I buy This??

I was thinking it would be cheaper just to start stock and put the mods that you want on it. This thing needs A LOT of lovin'. You buy it like this and everyone is going to think YOU riced a 'Stang. Even the grill is red! Ew!

I think you should keep looking.

A 2000 GT with 44k on it? I highly doubt those miles are accurate.

I think the guy likes it & thats why he's asking. I also think that in some way for sure someone else felt love for that thing.
To each their own.

Over kill on everything they did. Replace front bumper with the original, doors back to original, kill the rims, red interior back to original, and you will not spend too much getting it half decent. Someone was too fast too furious. Forgot to ask... what was the price? The price might make a difference.

So put it back to stock? Sounds like a waste, the doors I agree need to be changed back to normal but all else is fine and last I knew it was going for under 2000

Re: Should I buy This??

under 2k? then it might be worth getting and fixing to how you like. considering what you find given closer inspection.

as ugly as the body kit is, the looks of it isn't the only problem. the car could have been wrecked and instead of going back to the factory body they put on a kit while they were getting some money from the insurance. i would def. inspect the car heavily before considering the buy.

It wasn't wrecked it was a "seized" vehicle, which of course opens up a whole bunch of new questions

If you like the car then why not? I personally think it looks like ****, but that's my opinion. You can buy a nice used stock one for cheap these days, but if you like most of the Mods then why not.

Re: Should I buy This??

You know, I've always liked the idea of saving disgraced mustangs from any more embarassment and humiliation that has been brought upon by their former nincompoopish, **** for brains owners...but it all depends on the condition, history and price of the car.

For under 2k, this car could be returned to a respectable state for a reasonable price. Performance Red is a popular color and you can find OEM body pieces at salvage yards and private sellers. The interior can be fixed by either repainting the red pieces the factory interior color or buying replacement pieces from a wrecked stang.

The most expensive alteration would be exterior paint...and that's if you wanted to change the color. A real good body shop could match the new bumpers to the main body color code.

But I'd definitely check the history out on the car, both previous owner(s) and the condition of the engine/transmission/mechanics of the car.
