Which should I get?

I have been wanting to get a vehicle that is drivable for now and to fix up in the near future. I have narrowed it down to a few ideas, not really wanting to spend more than 6 or 7k at the moment.

1.) A 88-93 Gt to eventually slap a built 351 NA
2.) A 94-98 Cobra or GT to eventually build and SC
3.) A 99-01 GT at a descent price to eventually build and SC

What do you guys think?

PI FTW on the 99-01, but I dont think you will get for that cheap unless it has a ton of mileage.

Although, I might want to take my vote back for the cobra....

Oh, and Foxbodies <*

I have to say that I do like them. And I would be willing to pay a little more for a vehicle that is is like excellent condition. Unless I can trade "favors" for some of it.

Re: Which should I get?

Why not a supercharged 408(bored and stroked 351) in a fox???? Much cheaper to make fast than anything modular related.

I voted for Fox GT, but my real vote would be Fox LX.

Re: Which should I get?

Fox is where it is at. Or hell even a V-6 SN95 94-95 mustang. You already start out with 4 wheel disc and 5 lugs.... But I'm kind of a SN95 fan. Meh... nevermind, stick with the fox and start with a 5 lug swap.

Re: Which should I get?

The fox will be the cheapest to build up... just take your time and dont pick up a POS due to some ****** thinks that it is worth as much as some other fox mustang thats 10 times better in condition and has half the miles...

I am helping a friend track down a 5.0 mustang and it is proving very hard to find a good one.

Re: Which should I get?

^^^ Agreed.

This is the same kind of dilema I'm sitting on right now too (only I've never liked the SN95s, so they aren't in my list of choices). While I'd love to get something newer in the 99-04 range, as it's been pointed out already, a Fox with a Windsor-based powerplant is definently the cheaper alternative if you want a go-fast toy.

It all comes down to what you want to acheive with the car.
