ok this guy is selling his red 1996 mustang gt for 5K.

98,000 miles about

this is what it has:
-mach 460 sound system w/ new head unit
-CD player with bluetooth and ipod ports
-full exhaust system
-Bilistenen cobra wheels
-cobra brakes and rotors
-cold air intake
-aluminum intake manifold
-brand new interior (few years old)
-new tires w/ less than 5k miles on them
-new spark plugs and wires
-full synthetic oil change

is it worth it? it seems low to me, but i dunno, maybe its high? how much should i offer him? what other questions should i ask him when testing it? what should i look for? what should i check on the car?


COMMENTS AND OPINIONS PLEASE!!!! :):) lemme know.....

Well, Bilsteins' are a brand of shocks for starters.

basically put.. it is a stockish nonpi GT. It's not worth 5 grand in my eyes. I would look up the kbb or nada value in you zip and compare. The real question is.. is it worth 5 grand to you?

They are for sure aftermarket to his year. ( and ugly)

It's not worth 5 grand in my opinion.

If you have 5 k to spend then I know of a mustang that is for sale that is a much better one than that. No, it isn't mine. I do not own one at the moment.

that car's worth about 3450....

personally i wouldn't ever buy a non pi 2v ever again, i'd sooner get a 4v.......hell for 5 grand if you look real hard you could get a 99 gt with 100k on the clock

I payed 5200 for my 98 with 100k on the clock, bone stock.

Kinda wish I'd have looked around first though because I wish I'd have gotten one with a black interior and a MT...Mines auto with the ugly grey-black.

As for it being NPI...one day Forest is going to swap out for a 4 valve...and then I'll buy his motor. :D

kbb says they are worth 5500 and it is not a bad deal.. PI swpa is over rated, read my thead in this section on "When I see things like this.." and you will see why I say that..

Would need to see pics and what is with the aluminum intake manifold? Did he tell you that to confuse/trick you? Have you actually seen and driven the Mustang?

he most likely means the intake has been replaced with the alluminium crossover

yeah i believe it has been replaced with an aluminum one cause the one prior was plastic i think....and i am going to see and test drive it today, so i was just seeing what to look for, ask, then ill post more about it later tonight.

In my area it is listed on kbb as 4,700 as excellent. and 4,300 as good. so he probably went with like the excellent price plus all the addons.

I hope so because saying that it has an "Aluminum Intake Manifold" does not mean "haveing a aluminum crossover"....misleading and sounds fishy.
Just saw the pics and from the outside. From what was mentioned about the car and pics, I would not go over 4k. I would offer 32 hundred, you never get back the part money you put into the car. Remember those parts are what HE wanted not others and the mileage is high. And why was the interior changed? Full exhaust? What did he mean by this? Aftermarket Headers/Xor H pipe/Cat back is a full exhaust or did he mean stock full exhaust? I like how he says "-full synthetic oil change"....so he only did this once? lol ya sounds fishy, I would pass on it and look for another if he wont sell for 32 or close to it.
Good luck in you decission
