  1. I am putting my 1988 Mustang up for sale. I have been driving and modifying for the past 7 years. I am the third owner and this Mustang has been garage kept its entire life. The pictures on here do not do it justice. It has never been raced or even taken to the drag strip, but I know that this car is capable of high to mid 11's as it sits. All of the modifications have been done right and nothing on this Fox Mustang hacked. I have about 2000 miles on the motor since I built it. The Mustang has 52XXX miles on the chassis, but still in excellent condition. Very long list of modifications, but very reliable and most of all fun!

    It is a head turner, you do not see Fox Mustangs in this type of condition. Never seen salt or winter weather! NO RUST!

    All of the chassis welding modifications was completed by Al Scruggs and Slim's Hot Rod Shop.

    The motor is setup is N/A but is setup for boost. This car could run mid to low 10's with a mild supercharger setup, but is very quick and a head turner as it sits. Engine was blueprinted, by me, and I have a spreadsheet with the data.

    This is for serious buyers only! Please send me an email and we will get in contact with each other.

    This is an immaculate car! Please come take a look! The car was built by a professional engineer (me) and my father. Over 25K into it!
