Amazing — I love my car, I only paid $450 for it, everything is ORIGINAL and when I bought it mind you it is over 33 years old it only had 78,954 miles on it. I am the 2nd owner of this vehicle. It needs to be restored, which I am currently working on as I drive it

Mustang — Fords and I don't work well. I tend to blow them up! I should have known better than to buy a yellow mustang! What was I thinking? Black leather seats??? So not the car for me. The engine blew after six months - faulty radiator plug.

well built little car

Cons

engine was a bit weak. 2.7 L should not be allowed in mustangs

Old Reliable — it was a good first car. I had to give it up when the crate holding the drivers seat up broke. lol Good gas mileage. The clutch was replaced and it didn't seem to run right after that. I also had the gas tank replaced as I would put 5 bucks in before school and be on e after school. lol

Best Mustang I've Ever Owned. By LAREDOTECH1

This mustang is the best handling I've ever owned. It also looks pretty good except, why would Ford delete the spoiler when adding the performance package? The brake bite is really good with these Bre... Read More

Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012
