Would you buy this 2011 5.0?? Help??

Hi I'm considering buying a 2011 base gt mustang. It has a airaid cai,sct bamba tuner for life, gt500 exaust no cats, roush upper controll arms, gt500 lower controllarms, burton short throw shifter, leather interior swap, 20,000 miles on it and it also has a line lock. I'm worried why he wants to get rid of it for only $20,000. Good deal? Or should I be worried? He sas he raced it at the track a few times but that could be good or bad. Thanks!

I'd def get it checked out at a Ford dealer or really good mechanic for signs of abuse, thorough diagnostic and what not. Also, will he get it smogged upon sale? Im fairly sure it's illegal to sell a non-smogable car (cat deletes). That's really cheap for a 11 with that low of miles... Be suspicious.

Price is spot on. Due to the line lock, have it gone over with a fine tooth comb because the guy definitely raced it. Pretty sure the tunes for life is not transferable.

Is he military? Sometimes we get on the spot orders and have to be in place in less than a month. Many of us have sold cars well below their worth because we have to get rid of them fast for certain assignments.

It also has a jlt oil catch, and It has jegs cat deletes so he may still have the stock cats, with all the mods above and a bamba turn how much hp would you say it's pushing to the crank

Pull car fax on it. Pay Ford to inspect it. Look at the back tire tread, if well worn waaaaaaay past front tire wear he's been constantly lighting them up. That is a good price though. Worst case scenario it's under warranty and esp can be purchased from Ford, just detune it first!

It's not a premium its a base model with leather seats swapped out of a totaled premium, doesn't have the shaker 500 or the chrome on the steering wheel.

Price doesn't seem too crazy to be honest. Some people may just want to sell the car for what they owe on it still. All you can do is get it checked out by a dealer or a good mechanic and they can tell you all you need to know. Starting it up when the engine is cold will tell you a lot about it as well and how it drives down the road. Also, since there aren't any cats, you will be able to tell by the exhaust smell if it has any engine damage from burned out oil rings, etc. or blown head gaskets right away.

Just because he drag races it doesn't mean that it's worthless, I'm pretty sure we have all red lined our motors probably weekly on the streets. The line-lock is also a hell of a lot better than doing brake stands in it all the time also.

Price does seem low to me, I was just in the market and paid more for a base GT automatic with remote start, tints, front lip and wider tires. SUPER clean car though.

in a 250 mile search by me the cheapest I saw for a 2011+ was in the 22K range.

He may be completely above board, but have you checked for accident damage, salvage title, etc?

I'd definately get it checked out if there is question on condition of engine.

There seems to be an abundance of 2011 gt's out there so I think I will keep looking, I don't like the idea of buying a already modded car, I want to do it myself. The best is all the used 2011's have only 20,000 miles where ever you go (probably leases)

With it having a line-lock and being sold so cheap, I would budget about $5-6k for a T56 Magnum swap. That MT82 is probably on its last legs. Just my guess though.

yeah car fax it and bring it to the local dealership. I'd recommend test driving it and really banging the gears just to see if there are any tranny issues. Just because it was raced doesn't mean its broke or damaged.

Seems a little sketchy. But like everyone stated above....fine tooth comb...he might have a reason for selling it that low like financial hardships.

it's not for the transmission, it's for the brakes. it allows the front brakes to lock independently from the back brakes through like a switch. it's for burnouts

Buying a modded car that passes inspection is worth it. My bud just bought an Audi TT with 30k worth of mods for $6k! The guy just wanted to move on to a different project car. Good luck.

That is quite the deal. I couldn't imagine there was a single mod left to do
