I wanted ones of these when they where new, but there was no way i could afford the car payment and the California insurance. I found this car on Craig's list in a very rural area in central Illinios. It was listed 302 not a 5.0 and bad pictures.Tthe add was like a month old. My brother-in-law just happen to be in the mid-west from Tuscon. He asked me if i'd would like to go to Macomb with him. That trip would take us right through the small town of Astoria less 1200 people. We drove up to the address the lady gave me and she was waiting next to this beat red Mustang 4 banger. I am like is this the car and the lady was oh no the convertible is in the garage in the back. I always like to be prepared and I picked up there asking price in cash. The lady took me back to the garage. Her husband rolled up the door. I was drewling. The car is so original. It still has the factory paper tags on the under carriage. It check out on car fax as being 58 thousand original miles. My brothere-in-law took my a side and said I'll buy if you don't. I replied no I want it. The owner and I quickley struck a deal which included letting drive it home on his plates.
By the looks of my challenges this car isn't very popular. I've lost 7 out of 10. However I really like the car. It's a 20 year old survior that looks like new car. The 5.0 hasn't been winter driven for that fact I doubt it even been driven in rain.
5.0 bone stock automatic 59400 miles now documented by car fax the first owner in macomb illinios owned fo r15 years. then a guy in vermount ill had for 3 years. then a lady bought just to go to local crusie nights had in astoria ill for two years. so i am the forth owner, but it seems more like a 1-owner car . everyone whos has owned this car has maintain well. Its very aprent that it has not seen snow or road salt
standard 5.0 lx stuff 5.0 fuel injected automatic air (blows cold) am/fm cassette pw pdl pdb ps power top cruise but no tilt .Everthing works
