Possible new car

I know it sounds retarded since I've spent all this money on my car...but opportunities don't come along for me like this. It's a 2003 Mach 1 with 60k miles, bone stock, for 11k. I'll be honest though, the main thing that caught my eye was the 4v 4.6.

Re: Possible new car

not a bad price, depends on condition and upkeep overall and how clean it is~ for about 14k you can get a nicer one I would bet~ so the price isnt amazing~ but just pretty good. What color?? I think Azure blue is the only color i would want a mach 1 in

It's oxford white. I've still got the M112 if I ever want to supercharge it.

Re: Possible new car

Well, it's a no go. I called the dealership and it turns out it actually has like 150k miles on it, so I figure I'll keep looking around.

Re: Possible new car

Also remember that the 4V in the Mach 1 and the '01 cobra are not forged. So you'll have to keep it at or under 10psi boost.

It's getting easier to find nice '03 cobras under 20k. So think about that too.

Re: Possible new car

Go for the Terminator if you want the 4V.

Re: Possible new car

****, that would have been nice, but 11k for 150,000 miles is too high imo, even if it is a mach 1.

You can definitely find mach 1's with way lower mileage for 2-4k more. There's a screaming yellow one up here with 33k miles for 14,500 at a Ford Dealership.

Personally, I wouldn't pay more than 15, maybe 16k for a Mach 1. As said, the 4v engine isn't forged so you're limited on psi's without building internals (and I'd bet the 4v's are waaay more expensive to build). It's still a great car and would be fun to drive (I'm considering one myself in the future).

Some are out there for +18k, but then you're entering Terminator territory, might as well go all out and spend an extra 2k and get a Cobra.

Re: Possible new car

Well I did some more searching and found a nice 03 Terminator for 16,500. I'm going to wait until the place opens to call to schedule a test drive, ****ing third shift. I hate it.

Re: Possible new car

hmm if I was saving it would be hard to say no to a 2011 GT but for 15k less I might have to take another 03/04 cobra hmmm hard to say but I would want power and it would cost to much to get there in the 2011 but in all other areas they are superior.

Re: Possible new car

I just got approved from the bank for an 01 Cobra vert with 60k miles for 8k. Too bad I'm having to sell the sixer, oh well.

Re: Possible new car

sounds good! check for oil leaks on that sucker but im sure all is well. Also, 4.6's need to be cranked every week and no less than every two weeks, if its sat around a ton ... can cause issues with valve train.

Re: Possible new car

The only thing I'm dreading is preformance parts for it. I just checked AM.com and a new cam is like 1200 bones.

Re: Possible new car

I dont think cams do much of anything on the 4v motors, at least not 03/04 cobras without tons of other mods.

Re: Possible new car

Oh, well I was just referring to everything being a ton more expensive for a 4v.

Re: Possible new car
