Default 1989 Ford Mustang LX Notchback

SOLD!!!

Description:

The good:
• Purchased from SoCal in December 2015
• Originally 2.3 car swapped to 5.0L / 5 Speed
• Odometer not correct – purchased with about 43,000. Engine / trans have less
• Swapped in complete Cobra IRS
o Subframe was acid dipper, e-coated and powder coated gloss black
o brand new OEM half shafts
o Brand new diff with new 3.73 gears
o Full Tilt Boogie Racing UHMW subframe bushings
o Full Tilt Boogie Racing Aluminum front diff mounts / delrin rear mount
o Maximum Motorsports IRS sway bar end links
o Maximum Motorsports IRS sway bar bushings
o Maximum Motorsports IRS poly rear spring isolators
o Maximum Motorsports IRS adjustable toe links
o Maximum Motorsports Cobra basic grip package
o H&R Race Springs
o Magnaflow Catback Exhaust System – Stainless
o BILSTEIN B6 (HD) SHOCK
• 265/35R-18 FALKEN AZENIS RT615K+
• 18x9.5 ET40 TSW Vale Matte Black w/Gloss Black Face Wheel
• 5 lug SVO front rotors
• New Vintage USA Gauge Kit Performance II Series with Electronic Speedometer
• Interior partially updated:
o New black carpet
o Most trim has been painted black
o New black suede headliner
• New one piece headlights
• All new Kicker Speakers with new head unit and amplifier.
• New door seals / weather stripping
• New heater core in early 2016.

The not so good:
• One headlight has condensation and needs to be replaced
• Front tires rub at full turn
• No emergency brake
• Car has always had an oil leak – it’s slow but there
• The front center caps cannot fit over the front hubs and I’ve lost them.
• Needs rear wheel alignment and torque check
• Seats are splitting and there are still a number of tan interior pieces.
• A/C does not work yet. I have replaced all components to switch to r134a except the evaporator. All components are new.
• Front turn signals are not functioning properly. They are not bright at all and I haven’t gotten around to root causing / fixing.
• Door hinge pins need to be replaced.
• Door Beltline molding and side view mirror on the driver side needs to be replaced.
• The brakes suck – I suspect the vacuum booster is no good. The stock front suspension sucks too.
• The passenger front fender has some scratches / dents / rust.
• The rear wheels are not centered in the wheel wells side to side - this drives me nuts but doesn't cause any other issues.

I am kind of gauging interest here. Certainly not getting my money back on this deal but would like to focus back on my Firebird and can't do both cars at the same time. My plan was to eventually go wide body / race car with this thing, but that is many years off so willing to let it go for now.

It was used as a daily driver in California so I suspect yes, that it all still functions. We donít have to worry about that in Michigan though!

I would love to get some feedback on price point here. I haven't listed this anywhere else at this time - so before I do I'd love to hear from all of you! If needed - I can repost in "What's it worth"
