I have owned a few rangers. looking at a mustang to have fun with tho. thats where i need your help! I have been reading around and like what i see nice site guys!

ok i will get on with it now lol...


here is cell phone pics i took earlier of a mustang, 1996 GT wanting $4000 obo has 116000 on it..stored winters eibock springs, flowmasters, 4.10 and no chip so the millage is acully higher then it should be, short throw, newer trans 5 speed, clean interor black leather. i think thats it, i was running late for class and didnt have time to ask about the motor or anything else i have his # tho...

question is does this seem ok. how are the 4.6L over 100000? i mean it isnt hard for me to rebuild a motor i can do it in a weekend. but any advice on this car would be nice thanks guys...

Yeah the 4.6's are fine...Just depends on how the mileadge was put on them...

For that year a set of PI heads would be perfect...If you get the car let me know I will have a pi swap heads up for sale in about 4 months...

I would get a carfax no matter what...

Your only going to see about 200rwhp from the car...

What do you mean about the chip?

That does not seem to be a bad price at all for the car...

Best of lukc and welcome to the site...

Welcome to MM dude, diggin the bullitt wheels on the Ranger :rockon

The 4.6's aren't exactly known for their longevity, though they can last a long time with good maintenance. It's a good looking Mustang, certainly worth $4k in my opinion.

How old is the guy selling it?
I bet he beat on it pretty good, that's what guys are 'sposed to do with a GT.
+1 carfax

If you can rebuild in a weekend why worry about the 100k motor, just move into something else right away?

Welcome to MM and I dig the wheels on that Ranger man. Nice touch.

Late 20's ish i wouldnt doupt he hasnt full throttled it hell i mean i would when i got it lol..who wouldnt. I am asking because i would like to somewhat enjoy the car before i have to rip into the motor. i mean hell from what i have been reading for the past few hours on here about the NPI motors is that there pretty much junk. i would look for a newer 99+ PI motor or even a like 03 cobra motor before i would rebuild this thing now. good thing i have a family friend that owns a junk yard.

and thats for all the welcome guys. kinda sad that truck is now sold and gone thats probly why i am so ichy to buy a new project vehical the splash was my project it was a junk yard dog basically...fixed her up...



yes same truck...

That is a good deal, don't worry about everyone saying that the NPI motors are junk....... That is total BS, they may not be as quick as a PI motor but I prefer the body style and they go for so much cheaper cause they are thought of as "old."

But anyway I have a 97 GT with about 135,000 miles and it doesn't even tick. I paid 4600 though and it is stock with black cloth interior. I'd pay for it in a heartbeat.
