I sold the Mustang. The novel.

I've had the Mustang up for sale on my local Craig's list for about 3 months. I had a few offers but none had followed through.

On last Monday, I started the Mustang up because it had been sitting for a few weeks and it turned out the A/C had quit cooling.

I still had warranty coverage until September of this year so I thought, no big deal, I'll drop it off at the dealer and get it covered.

I find out that the A/C evaporator core was leaking and it would be covered under warranty. So no big deal.

I was always hesitant to even try to trade it in because I've got too much money invested in aftermarket parts. They wouldn't give any extra if I left it all on there and I dreaded returning the car to stock and then trying to sell off all my parts. I figured the best possible solution would be to sell the car privately and fully intact.

My 2011 Mustang GT base with its current milage of 63k had a trade in value of $16,900 even though I had about $7k in parts I realize they are used now and with age depreciation I'd be lucky to even get half of what I got into it. So I posted it on CL for $20K.

So, back at the dealership. After checking up on my Mustang I go visit my sales guy. He's sold me 4 cars in the past including my Mustang and I've always had a good experience with him so I let him know the situation I was in and that as soon as the Mustang sells I'll be paying him a visit to negotiate a new truck.

Naturally, as any salesman would want to earn his commission he ask me what would it take to trade in the Mustang and get into a new truck today? I showed him my CL add. He laughed and then asked me what would I really take? I told him $20k. And he said, you're serious. I said, absolutely.

Then we talked about what I wanted to buy. I told him that I want to be able to haul a 40 foot gooseneck trailer for a side business I'm starting. I told him I'm interested in an F350 super crew 4x4 dually. He said, if you're buying a truck like that, I might be able to get you $20k for your car. I told him, I'll call my bank, you call your manager.

So we came to a deal. Because the car fax on the Mustang show it had light damage from a sideswipe they haggled me down another $500.

The new truck is sick. Although, when I think about the Mustang I feel an ache in the pit of my stomach but it was time to let it go.

The last few pics of the old and a few new pics of the new!

Sounds like I may be seeing you on the F150Forum now! Congrats on the truck purchase. I own a 2007 F150, and it has over 116K on its odometer, running strong. This is my 3rd F150; never had any troubles with any. Those F350's are beautiful examples of work horses.

Good luck with the new business as well!

going from V8 envy to truck envy.

I have a Tacoma and 1/2 of a 1500 Silverado plow truck

Good luck with the new ride and may I suggest a gas discount card

I was wondering where you had been. Just because you traded the pony doesn't mean you get to leave lol. Congrats on the truck my brother. It's a beauty.

Thanks guys.
Yeah Bucko, I've been a member of the F150 forum for awhile. I don't post much there though.
I've got an '11 F150 4x4 that I bought new.
I'm really digging this '15 F350. It's the first truck I've bought with this much fancy pantsy gadgets. I'm not even sure how to check the DEF level! Lol, there is no gauge that I can see!

It's digital. It will show you on the center screen between the speedo and tach. Just have to play with the buttons on the steering wheel.

Nice truck I have a f250 king ranch. B4 that I had a f350 king ranch but it was with the older motor the 6.4 and it was problem after problem. The 6.7 is beautiful I love it.

My old f350, and then my f250

Congrats Primer! Badass F3fiddy

Do you still have your Nissan 240? Is that the one you were working a few years back posted in this thread? I was gonna ask if you still had your F150, but you answered that lol.
