    If you wreck it, you get paid for it as a 4-cyl...if the insurance company doesn't deny you payment at all

    Don't forget about the 84 Anniv cars and I believe some of the '79 Pace Cars were 2.3T as well.

    "the only turbo 4cyl mustangs were the 84-86 svo mustang or if somebody converted a mustang to a turbo mustang"




    Carb turbo 2.3L was available in Mustangs from 1979 to 1981.

    1982 Canada had a blow through carb turbo 2.3L Mustang with a exhaust mounted turbo.

    1983-1984 had the Mustang GT turbo with a non intercooled 2.3L turbo.

    1984-1986 Mustang SVO with the intercooled 2.3L turbo.

    Actually that doesn't look to bad. You have the money that would be a good one to scoop up. Find out what year the engine is so you know if its roller or not. I have a few V8 cars but I've never owned a "V8" car due to the insurance.

    Lord of uh, hmm what was it again?
    Everyone always goes off about insurance, and I know that when younger it can be a bit more, but my 86 GT insurance is actually $5 LESS / 6 months than the insurance on my 87 lx 2.3.
    Same with when my Wife had Her 87 GT vert, the insurance was basically the same as my 87.
