    My 1978 Ghia;p
    I'm the third owner, picked it up in June 2006 for $750.
    It needed springs, brakes, tires.Currently rebuilding a 289 for it. The original 302 is long dead. I'll be shaving the trim(whats left of the trim..) and vinyl roof, converting it into a coupe.she needs a paint job too

    $750? Sweet deal. Ten Holes look good I might add, that's where I'm headed on mine

    Got mine for $50 on craigslist. Instead of spacers I'm just putting thinner tires in the front

    Tire size isn't the problem it's wheel offset.

    MY 1/2 Cobra

    Here is my Mustang II. I have lowered it, 1" front and 3/4" rear sway bars, 17X8 bullitt wheels. Changed the 6 3/4" rear to an 8" rear with 3.55 gears. T5 trans with Hurst short shifter and lightened flywheel. Made a 4" shifter extension to put the shifter in the stock location. It has a 2.3 which I put a header, 2" exhaust and a turbo muffler. I have a pair of Dellorto 40 DHLA sidedrafts on it. I changed the ingnition to a mechanical advance Mallory distributor with a Pertronix module and a Pertronix 40,000 volt coil. I have another head in the shop getting milled 40 thousands, ford racing A237 roller cam, big valves and springs and minor porting. I used two grills to eliminate the turn signals and put Shelby style fog lights. Moved the turn signals under the bumper. Put a AM/FM CD player in the dash with new 5" speakers in the door, 6X9's in the rear and a sub in the spare tire well. Upgraded the steering wheel, dash panels and I have a pair of Recaros I need to get recovered and install. It was already painted when I got it. It needs to be repainted. I get a kick out of driving it now. What do you think?

    Looked at this today

    I just looked at this today. 40,000 original miles. Of course it has to be one of the ugliest color Ford made, but i could probably take it home for $1200.
    ...3 spoke steering wheel, power brakes/steering, A/C
