I bought my 95 GT Coupe with 107,000
miles on it for $4800. It was in dire
need of a detail job which I did
myself in a day. This is my third
Mustang, I previously owned a 85 and a
91, both with the 5.0L v8. I'm into
performance and for the money a 302
based Mustang can not be beat.
Aftermarket is huge, the car will
EASILY go 300,000 miles with regular
maintanence and a bit of care. Both
of my other stangs had over 200,000
miles on the odometer when I sold
them. I will never buy another
american car other than a 87-95
With a little under $2000 extra into
the car I can beat most cars which
cost $30,000 or more in the 1/4 mile
and out-handle most sports cars in
local autocross events. The
aftermarket for Mustangs is enormous,
you can make this car do whatever you
want it to.
As far as a stock Mustang goes, the
power is there if you know how to get
it. The body needs a set of subframe
connectors($100) to fix the noises and
rattles. Stock 11" brakes are too
small but can easily be upgraded to
13" Bullitt/Cobra spec brakes for $400.
