New guy here!/Fox body questions?!?!
Hello all, im glad to be appart of this forum. iv been checking it out and you all seem very friendly! Anyway a guy in my area is selling a 1990 foxbody mustang, for whatever reason it has a 1995 5.0L engine in it and it needs new suspension and ball joints. He says it has fairly new tires on it and i believe the 95 engine has just under 140k miles. So far thats all i really know about it. But the guys is only asking $500 for it. When i talked to him on the phone he said he wanted $1500, but i told him that im looking for a project car and that it would be taken care of very well. I can tell he cares alot about the car but apparently hes got too many projects going on now. so he said he would let it go for 500. Now with the new suspension and all im going to try and talk him down. But i guess what im really asking is, am i walking into a nightmare of a car? iv never owned a mustang, in fact this will be my second car ever. Is suspension and ball joints hard to change? is it going to cost me alot? Now i havent looked at the car, but i am going tomorrow to check it out. I will take some pics to post up for a refrence. but is $500 too good to be true? I understand the condition will determine the value. But ANY feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time guys. Im really looking forward to this project!
