possible stang for my buddy

so check this out. my buddy's first car was a 89 5o 5spd, the thing was insane stupid fast, i forget what was done but i kid you not it lifted the front tires a inch or two in front of the school. well anyways that was long ago, and he has had something like 10 different cars since then, from hondas(rsx-s, teg, crx) to trucks(sonoma/s10) to dsm's(1g awd, 95 talon awd auto).

so his newest venture is to get another stang. he really wants a 94-98 body style, and really wants a 5.0, cause its like his old 5.0. we went car hunting this weekend and came up short, most places wanted 9-10k for 94-95's with 100k+ on them and not the greatest of conditions. so we come home and get on autotrader and find this.

http://www.autotrader.com/dealers/id...r_id=176967347

now he likes everything but the tan interior. but he can live with it. most he wants to go for the time being on mods would be rear end, intake, exhaust, headers, pulleys, and some other little stuff. he wants to stay away from forced induction for the time being.

what do you guys think?

he should really just buy a 99+ if everyone is asking for around 10k...

but that looks good if he wants a 5.0... i guess he doesnt have much of a choice.

I dunno, watching all the 90's and up Mustangs on manual looks like it'd be a pain in the *** to reach the knob. The 05's look a bit nicer in reach.

that is a lot of money for a 94-95, the most expensive one ive seen around here is 5000, they are mainly in the 3000s

what's up guys, i'm eclipsegst's "buddy" lol.

I'm not really set on a 5.0, i just figured they would be priced a little lower (which is good ) than the 4.6's. I'm really only looking to spend 6-7k at most. The main problem is that I need to buy from a dealership because I won't have the cash to buy outright. I probably have about 3500-4000 cash and there isn't anything around here for that cheap (not 94-98 anyways). So i'll have to get something at a dealership so I can make payments on the rest. I don't want payments for along time, I will be paying it off within 2-3 months. I'm not too worried about the miles, since my 89 5.0 had 289k on the orignal motor before I finally blew it up. Another thing thats appealing is the convertible....

I'm thinking maybe I should save up a little more cash and try to find a cobra for around 6-7k? Like eclipsegst said, i'm not going to be modding this car very much, so hp isn't a big issue.

If I do end up buying this one, what are some things I should look out for before I purchase it? are there any problems with the 94-95 5.0's that I should look for?

Thanks for the advice guys!
Bryan

Hey...I take offense to that. Verts can go fast too.

id still get a 99+ GT... you could probably get a modded v6 99+ that could beat the 5.0 for around the same price of 5-8k...

Could you take out a loan and pay a bank back instead of a dealer?? Youll probably even get a cheaper APR that way and then youd have a lot larger selection of cars to choose from. Dealers tend to charge a good portion more for cars than they should, its unfortunate

definately NOT getting a v6.....its just not the same....

Yea i'm not worried about speed, and the convert would be awesome for the cali summers...

Eh, I can't get a loan with a good APR anyways, my credit sucks ***. I used to sell cars, so I definately won't be paying full price..

Like i said, i'm pretty low on funds (3500-4000) and I want something I can pay off within a couple months, so a 99+ is pretty much out of the question because I don't want payments. I figure if i put 3500 on this car, i can pay it off within 2 months, which would be perfect...

its not so bad, but omg a 64-66 with a t-5 and a stock fox body shifter is PERFECT, maybe even a little too close in second. but it alot nicer than my two foxes

would he happen to want an 89 that needs a lot of work to look like new? and needs body work/a floor pan to be solid?

Drives down the road, goes and stops great..
ran high 13s about 4 months ago..

but needs a rocker panel/floor pan to be solid.. 1/4 has to be pulled out slightly to line it back up with the door properly, but its minimal..

Door is dinged to hell (byproduct of the hit.. ) needs fender, front bumper cover..

interior is dirty but passable if you're blind..

~30-40k miles on rebuilt t5, shifts great
$1200

I saw a pretty nice 95 GT for $6K a couple years ago with 75K miles

You should come to Iowa to get your car. You could get a good deal in the midwest, just fly out and drive it back

yea actually i was thinking about doing that, but i figure after the plane ticket and gas to drive back, i might as well have paid the extra here...

MonteCitan - no thanks, I don't want anything i'm going to have to work on. i'm coming from the DSM world where i'm fixing my car almost everyday. so i'm hoping the move back to a mustang will stop the constant money flow into the car (from maintenence, not mods... )

so 6k is a little high for a 95? hrm maybe i'll keep looking then....

they are slow yeah, but the 5.0s are so cheap to mod and get great gains from little mods.... so its never a bad choice. If you would actually go somewhere else to get the car, try the midwest... look at chicago stangs cuz i know you could get a flight from LA to Chicago O'hare for like 99 bucks one way from southwest. Driving it back wouldnt cost too much, itd be worth the trip. Also 6k isnt bad for a 95 with a decently low number of miles (60-75k) so if you find that, jump on it for sure... especially a vert, those usually go for about 1k more than the coupes of the same stature.

so 6k is a little high for a 95? hrm maybe i'll keep looking then....

But its perfectly maintained! I keep it running top-notch, has new valve stem seals, all new gaskets (except rear main, which leaks) rebuilt trans, new cam, timing chain, etc.. holds oil pressure like a brand new motor, all accessories work except AC, new window regulators/door lock actuators..just needs rocker panel/floor pan to be solid.. needs door/fender and a few dents removed to be otherwise good..

Paint is still glossy all over, except for scratches on roof I drove it every day for about 3 months, it didn't strand me nor attempt to strand me once..

I'd even trust driving it to deliver someone.. that car runs like a mofo

Fair enough though my offer still stands

well he finally got one.

traded in the talon awd for 2g's and got a 95 Laser Red 5.0 5spd. its pretty clean, only a few paint chips in the front bumper and a nasty oxidation line from where the bra was, nothing a little elbow grease and compound cant fix. interior is next to perfect, cloth, i couldnt notice any imperfections.

it makes a weird whine right after the clutch fully engages, i think it might be the TOB going out.

first mods will be
color matched intake(i forget who makes them)
custom dual exhaust with flows and turndowns
Steeda TriAx short throw

im trying to get him to get gears but he wants to wait on them.

its pretty sweet to be in a 5o again, makes me miss the days of HS when he had his 89.

btw he paid 5500 for it. pretty good seeing crappier ones were going for 8-9g's around the area.
