I found my old mustang on craigslist!

Well, i was on craigslist looking around and found my old mustang. Thinking about going to go get it for the same price i sold it to him for. The transmission messed up though. He said it started smoking out the back also, coming from the transmission? Is this possible? What causes it to smoke?

Re: I found my old mustang on craigslist!

I saw my old '85 on CL once. It was sad, same as yours, the trans was f'd. I called the guy who had it and told him about the car and what was done to it. He immediately took it off of CL and said he was going to fix it instead. I guess he had got it at an auction and knew nothing about it until I told him.
Sad to say, it was in rough shape! I was tempted to call the guy and yell at him instead.

Re: I found my old mustang on craigslist!

Yea, I shouldve just waited and done a conversion but i had 1500 and that wasn't enough for the motor, transmission, driveline, rear end, computer, and wiring. I'd buy it back but, he said it started smoking out the back. He says it came from the transmission. Is that possible?

Oh. lol. yea, talked to the guy about my car today, about trading my mustang for my old one, and he wants to drive mine this time, but it doesnt have insurance. i took him for a ride in the other one. he says he doesnt want to get screwed again. lol. if i knew the transmission was going out, i wouldnt have took him for a ride in it, he bought it, got 20 mins down the road and calls back and wants to work something out, or maybe get his money back, and me take the car back, after it cut off, wouldnt go into gear, wouldnt start back up, and started smoking out the back? i dont think im a used car dealership.

Re: I found my old mustang on craigslist!

I'd pay at most 1500 with a bad transmission as long as the motor is as good as he says it is.

It's worth more, when I owned it it was. The motor has 171XXX miles on it. He only drove it for like 20 mins. The motor ran great when I sold it to him. Unless he dogged it within 20 mins.
