Port Washington, Wisconsin, United States
I'm not sure why this score is low.
Previous owner may have had banking issues and defaulted on a loan or lien.
Something of that nature.
I'm not aware of any accidents either.
I can say this, Title is clear and car is solid.
Awesome Fox Body Mustang GT.
Ready to drive with some room for improvements.
Great driver as is with extra parts.
Body taken off for paint job in 2011
Motor has been worked before I purchased in 2013.
24X,XXX miles on odometer
Only selling to help pay for school.
Well maintained 91 Fox Body 5.0, 5 speed, short throw shifter, after market 4" cowl hood (matching paint). Spare 5.0 - 302 w/ 106K Extra doors/Interior Gauges and more. Spare rear end (posi?/gears? - Unknown). Brand new dust cover. The car runs exceptionally well and is in good shape. The only fall back is the gears in 3rd and 4th are starting to grind (possibly syncros)(tranny rebuilds $330 DIY/ $600) but a temporary solution has been to 'double clutch' while shifting and the sunroof is sealed shut. Since my ownership of the vehicle I have washed/waxed it WEEKLY.
Comment any questions! Ill be happy to answer.

Pots and kettles, glass houses and stones - that's a little of what we appear to have going on in the European car market. New reports say that that three European automakers have registered their opposition to a loan deal that PSA/Peugeot-Citroën is working on with the French government. Peugeot's finance arm, Banque PSA Finance, is struggling with its debts and has been downgraded by Moody's to its lowest investment-grade classification, one step above junk. This makes it more expensive for a potential buyer to finance a car through Peugeot. The last thing Peugeot needs is more difficulty selling cars in the tough European market, and the situation will only worsen if the bank's credit worthiness takes another hit.
A deal being worked on would have the French government offer €7 billion ($9B U.S.) in bonds to guarantee the bank's loans, which would give the institution some breathing room to manage its debts and lower its interest rates. Outside of that, a group of banks would provide other, non-guaranteed loans to the bank to further help its position. In exchange for state help, though, the government wants seats on Peugeot's board for worker representatives and a government liaison, along with factory and worker guarantees. The Peugeot family would maintain control of the company.
So what we have is government assistance being provided to a car company's finance arm, akin to the way General Motors' GMAC (now Ally Financial) and Chrysler Financial got help in their time of need. What we also have is Ford and Renault, and Germany's State of Lower Saxony, the second-largest shareholder in Volkswagen, voicing their concern about the proposal, because they say it could create an unfair competitive advantage for Peugeot. Everyone in Europe's down market is fighting for every sale, and if Peugeot gets help to keep its auto loan costs down, it figures to help buyers choose Peugeot or Citroën.

Buick GN and GNX will return
Australia's Motoring has put together a little video on two of the great performance vehicles available down under - the Holden VF Commodore HSV GTS and the Ford Falcon FPV GT R-Spec. And while both FPV and the Falcon might be on their way out, there's still plenty of time for a little head-to-head comparison between the two.
The cars aren't all that well evenly matched, though. The Ford boasts a 5.0-liter, supercharged V8, which the Aussies measure out at 449 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The HSV, though, with its Corvette-derived, 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 is just too powerful - 576 hp and 545 lb-ft of torque.
Predictably, it doesn't end too well for the Ford. As the guys from Motoring point out, the new VF Commodore is just too new and too good, with its extra power and its adaptive dampers (GM's excellent MagnaRide). Interestingly, Motoring did point out that the Holden's electric steering is better than the Ford's hydraulic steering, which is a lot like a Porsche purist saying they prefer water-cooled engines to air cooled.
