1991 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 (highly customized)

Ok so first off I hope I am not stepping on anybody's feet who is a part of this wonderful site.. BUT check out what I think is an outrageous 'deal' for a fox body. Just thought some of yall might like to see how crazy other ppl are out there.. Oh did I mention that it has a lovely salvage title to go along with that sweet pricetag? Here's the post: :eek::jaw::rlaugh:


This FAST 1991 Mustang is ready to hit the street. It has lots of power and needs just a little interior work to finish it out. A base Mustang has been refined with only quality performance-inducing parts to produce a special ride. All of the air conditioning equipment has been removed to lighten the car. The car has a salvage rebuilt title, because it was in a wreck a few years ago (but was fixed correctly and has no evidence of being in a collision). I am only asking for money for the parts installed in this beast – I have not factored in a cost for the base car in my asking price. See the installed list of parts below for a total inventory of what has been installed. The car can be parted out just for the performance parts alone – however, you would not want to do that.

The tires are in really good shape. Brakes have been recently replaced. All fluids are fresh. Car was re-painted about 1.5 years ago. It runs perfectly. It has about 9000 miles on the rebuilt engine and about 300 miles on the freshly rebuilt T5 manual 5 speed transmission. The Cervini hood looks really nice.

Interior needs some work:
• Needs new door and window weather stripping
• Needs both door panels
• Lacks radio, has the open slot in dash where a radio goes

I will post pictures this weekend after I give it a good wash and wax.

Here is the detail of what performance parts are installed in the car. I could not get this information to post where it looks good. Hopefully, you can read the information. I can email you the Excel spreadsheet that contains all of the information if you need it.

well my point was that this guy wants 10K for a fox body with a salvages title and no power adder on or included... seems extremely high to me. The list of engine parts does look nice but nowhere near what justifies 10' for almost a 20 year car

So rusty your saying that this car is worth that or close to it? I have only had new edge cars so I am not a fox guy by any means but I do know enough for me to think this guy is nuts. But this is all my 2 cents.. I would much rather put that 10K into a true classic car than a fox

hell no i think its worth 4k most, im saying all these douche-nozzle's are jacking the price trying to make them classics.. when its not really that great of a car or fast or structurally sound..

the most i payed for a fox was 4300 and that was a 1 owner 7up vert that had 69k on the clock.. i know where one is right now that has 37k on it for 6 grand, also 1 owner guy daily drove it from 88-90 and parked it and drives it on occasion..

Ok so I was intending to be facetious when I posted this but I guess some of the parts are good quality. I still don't see 10K worth in this car with a salvaged title.. And the only reason why i posted this on here is that I know there has been a few people talking about how much ppl think their foxes are worth.

Hell, another 10 years Fox's will be true classic cars:flag:. Ditto on who said beware on junked cars, its easier then you think to bend a frame and not worth really fixin, I would give this car every test I can think of before puttin 10 grand in the car, besides only a serious car collector would put that much into a Fox, and we are all limited budgets.

we all know when we sell our stangs u never get what u have in them ... im sure the car is nice but i think the most he would get is 5k maybe ... having a salvage title really hurts it

no.... It should def be faster than a npi car. My friends gt40 head and cam combo ran [email protected] 107.

With a lot more than gt-40 heads..

Gotta have more details from your buddys car because there is no way with 3.55s a gt40 head car is trapping 107.

Agreed.. Some of us over the age of 30 were around for the old 5.0 heyday.. The old 5.0 seems to run a lot faster now on the internet than I remember them running at the track back in the mid 90's..

yeah it's possible on a well setup car.. I have also seen PI 4.6's go 12.90's with very minor mods on slicks.. It's all about knowing how to drive, picking good air days and hooking.. most people build from the engine out, if you build your suspension and get it to hook before you do power mods you can run some impressive times if you have skill.

I have a friend going high 12's on a auto LT-1 camaro that still has it's stock cat and the only engine mods is a tune CAI and mid length headers. runs [email protected] on the old nitto DR's and 12.8-9 on slicks.. BTW the car is full weight still has the spare and jack in it.

BUT my point is the 5.0 in stock form is about equal to a NPI 4.6 powerwise. the notches ran easy mid 14's back in the day on street tires but the vast majority of gt 5.0's were in the low 15's high 14's..



I am just getting a bit irritated at the anti 4.6 people I have run into over the years.. They seem to overrate the hell out of the 5.0 and underrate the 4.6 cars.

i can agree with you on that.
