I'm about to purchase a 1994 V6 Convertible, but I have some questions for the members of this forum. I know little when it comes to cars, let alone trying to take one in as a project.. so here goes;

Should I even buy the car? Is a 94 V6 worth the effort? I am getting it cheap..

The car needs a lot of work. It isn't as aesthetically pleasing as it used to be, a lot of chips, scratches, the top might need replaced, etc. Has awful red interior.

The owner said it needs a tune-up and new spark plugs, but I know nothing about that sort of stuff. Didn't sound like a Mustang should.

Anyway, it's got quite a few panels, switches, and things like that they probably need replaced(they were loose/didn't work).

I'm willing to put some effort into fixing it up, but I don't even know where to begin or what to expect.

Thanks for your time.

Welcome!

How cheap are we talking here? and how many miles?

I say if it's under $700, do it.

Otherwise, look elsewhere man. Good Mustangs can be had for very little money. I know people who have gotten SN95 GT's with under 100k for $3,500.

$700? Wow, I thought $1200 was cheap. 156k. Auto.

Yeah, with what you listed, you're looking at EASILY $3,000 worth of repairs. If you don't know a ton about how to do everything yourself, you'll spend way too much and you could have had a better, nicer, GT for the amount you spent on a dinky 1st gen SN95 V6.

Spend the $3,000-$4,000 you would have to on this V6 and buy yourself something in better shape. You can get a good condition SN95 GT for that easily.

Welcome, use it as a daily driver for that price, and do minor work, And just keep it running till it craps out, then drop int a v8 : )

Thanks for the advice. I don't know what I was thinking..(I wasn't) lol, just eager to purchase a car I guess.

Welcome to MM!

Gonna have to agree with what others have said, look around and find a nice SN95 GT. Cheap ones aren't to hard to find.

I would offer the 700 for it. Good car to start learning on as you won't be afraid to mess something up. There is only one way to learn so buy a wrench set and get started!
