1987 Ford Mustang 5.0 Hatchback (Ripper)
Last updated Sep 18, 2009
Well I bought the car from a friend that I've known for a few years. Practically stole it from him for only $1500. Car is close to mint. Body has some very small surface rust around the wheel wells and then the hatch has the common rust. I planned on replacing that and then fixing the rust and throwing a nice paint job on it. The motor is stock with only 90,000 on it. I plan on installing a Trick Flow on that which my buddy has for only $1500 installed plus a 150hp shot of nos. Should be nice when its done.
Well with it being the 5.0 it carries the Ford 302, which in actuality is a 4.9 but whatever. Has close to 220hp and 300ftlb's of torque. 1/4 mile speed is unknown, I plan on obtaining that next year once the car is all built up. Right now my top speed on it is about 115mph or a little more. My dash only reads up to 85mph so I had my buddy with a speed gun test me out on a long straight and flat road. He tagged me at 116mph. I wanna say in under 1/2 mile.
Car has an aftermarket Sony stereo system, speakers and all. Also has a Warlock exhaust which gives it a very clean and purring effect. Keeps it quiet until I stomp on it =)
