68k Miles
Price is $21,500
Located in Hoover, AL

Built May 27th 2003 and is 3938 of 5082 and about 611 in this combination
Original Purchase was at Eckenrod Ford, Cullman AL
I purchased as second owner at Woody Anderson Ford on January 10th 2006 with 37k miles
The vehicle was all stock minus a hurst shifter when purchased
I did not keep the original SVT satin finish wheels due to some curb rash, it had original tires.

I have nearly every SVT and original item that came with the car
1. Original window sticker (can be pealed and stick if wanted), unfolded and framed just like new
2. Original SVT certificates framed
3. SVT Book in original container unopened (very rare)
4. SVT Booklets that come in glove box

8. Coolant, brake fluid, power steering are due in the next year or so but all are clear
9. Car has no ticking as some of these have, I do not stay in the boost long enough to cause heat issues
10. Wheels are removed every year to clean fender insides and hand polish wheels inside and out
11. Under car is inspected and cleaned every year during oil change
12. Car is not driven in the rain or left outside at night
13. Water drain rails and passages are all clear with no issues and look like new
14. Oil measured on draining and no oil consumption issues exist
15. Rear Diff fluid was replaced by Ford around 20k miles

Storage
1. Climate controlled garage, never stored outside, never used a car cover (bad for paint)

Paint - Custom Detailed (Insane Paint, Pelham AL) paint was 95% corrected and sealed 2 years ago
1. A couple minor spots on front bumper and one small spot on hood
2. Small areas on side scoops and side skirts simply from driving
3. Areas on bottom of rear bumper behind wheels
4. A small little circle on top of rear spoiler under paint thats hard to see
5. Black chrome is all in near perfect shape
6. Front bumper chin spoiler is just about perfect
7. Minor spots on mirrors
8. Paint is brilliant and has amazing depth due to detailing and Redfire's paint make up
9. What I have told you is what you will see on every car with any miles on it
10. Underside of hood fully painted, most are not.

Exterior
1. Headlights replaced with OEM Ford due to pealing that these cars can have
2. Black chrome is original and in perfect shape
3. Top is in perfect shape with no tears or issues
4. Top cylinders work great with no problems
5. Door seals and convertible seal are all perfect with no tearing
6. Door lock on driver side door is black with slight wear (never use it due to paint scratch risk)

8. No windshield chips and OEM one with running horse on inside
9. I have the original windshield wipers with wind louvers

Interior
1. Slight wear, no tearing on driver side bolster (normal on these cars) its not gotten any worse since 2006
2. Slight scratches from cleaing on clear plastic gauge cover (normal on these cars)
3. Seat inserts are very nice and near perfect for a car with any miles

5. Door alignment (convertable sag) is not on this car due to subframes

You forgot to post a picture with your username and date, as per website rules.... How else do we know that you are who you say you are? Or, if this car really even exists?
For all we know, these are some pictures that were pilfered from the internet, with the intention to run a scam on the fine members of this website.
I recommend trying to find one more picture of that car, or one similar, and try your hand at photoshopping a piece of paper onto it, with your username and current date. We will be the judge if you did an acceptable job, and we will then decide if we will permit you to keep this ad posted... or give it the boot.

And one other thing, Mr Spector V, if that is indeed your real name... I recommend that, after 13 years of ownership, you go drive that junk before you sell it.... 100 mph?!? How is anyone going to know if the car is any good at all? Go out and bang that thing up to around 165, and after you wipe that #@+# eating grin off of your mug, you get back on here and tell us about how it went, and how you feel about the car after actually driving the damned thing, and not using it as a collector of useless car show trophies and awards, for all of those years.

It's not "beating" on the car... It is called "testing". Or, "thoroughly enjoying".

That picture looks alright I guess.

Good luck with the sale Spec...
