Selling the Mustang to pay for the Jag’s eventual revival. It’s been fun times but the insurance expense and fuel economy for a 1 mile commute is making less and less sense. Better to get rid of an extra car, a signature loan payment, and an insurance payment all at the same time. CL ad follows:
Selling my 1986 fox body Mustang. Runs and drives great, I’ve been daily driving it since spring. Has a 3.8 liter throttle-body injected V6. Was an automatic car, swapped out a world-class T5 out of a later model Mustang when the automatic started giving me problems. Now has a 5 speed, good clutch, and a newer-style more reliable starter motor. New front bearings and front brake rotors, new front shock mounts, basic safety stuff has been gone through. The problematic emissions garbage has been removed and a brand new serpentine belt installed. Paint is just white primer over the previous yellow paint job. Body is fairly straight and has no structural rust. Drives fine, gets 17mpg around the city, probably more on the highway thanks to the 5-speed overdrive transmission. A/C works. Needs a heater core and an inner tie rod on the passenger side but can be driven fine as-is. Tires have plenty of tread and are on period-correct American Racing five-spoke wheels.
Unknown odometer reading. Rebuilt title due to hail damage in the early 90s.
