Hey guys. Used to have an 88' LX 5.0 back in the day and some old lady got drunk and side swiped it while it was parallel parked out in front of my work. I thought my co-workers were playing a joke on me until I went outside and saw paramedics putting this 55 year old lady on a stretcher and into an ambulance. My car hooked her head on into a tree. There were Coors light can all over the place in her car. Anyways, my car was totaled and I salvaged some parts from it and said goodbye. This was 1998. So now I'm finally getting back in the game and wanted a project with my son (who is only 4 but in love with mustangs, especially Foxs!) Anyway, I picked up this 1987 5.0 Mustang with a T-top and 5spd tranny. Crappy condition but only cost me $1,000 and It runs and drives well. It has on it already JBA headers, a crappy K&N intake filter, proflow 75mm MAF (they converted the speed density fortunately), Flowmaster mufflers, offroad h-pipe, unknown lowering springs, I believe Saleen mesh rims, some auto meter gauges and other stuff. My intentions are to replace carpet, seats (which I already bought), I just ordered new tires and did an A/C delete with the FRPP kit that moves up the PS pump. The car came with a new door (all manual windows and door locks! I love that!), it came with all new GT body kit, new tires that were too small and misc other stuff. Here are some pix from when I picked it up, dirty and neglected View attachment 77276 View attachment 77276 This will be a slow build over a while. Funds are a little limited and so is time since my lovely wife is expecting TWINS due late July. I should have most of the body work done by then but I don't expect paint until summer of 2014. I will be doing all work myself. I was taught by my Father who was an Autobody Tech for Ford in Escondido Ca for 35 years and was a genius with breathing life back into a wrecked vehicle after it was smashed to pieces. Please post comments or advice/opinions.
