This incredible V6 Mustang.
It has had some body work done.
It has the bare minimum to pass a safety, whether it will pass is another question.
For $2,000cad/$1,526usd I gladly drive it.
The last half of the ad that worry/intrigue me:
Q: Is it street legal?
A: Technically, it has all the equipment required to be operated on public roads (in Ontario at least). This includes OEM seat belts, all lights, horn, wiper, windshield etc.
Q: What do cops say?
A: Depends on the cop - but they will usually ask for proof of insurance and sometimes will do a roadside safety. I’ve taken it straight to the police station once and had a cop confirm it’s fine to drive. It’s gone through three traffic officer safety inspections now and passed each time (though one cop pointed out the front tires were low on tread - this was promptly dealt with though).
Q: How many times have you been pulled over?
A: Four times now. Two of the times were within a 5 minutes time span though haha. Plates have never been pulled and car has never been impounded. Keep in mind I only put on 2000 km in the past year though.
Q: Is it safe?
A: I’m an engineer and designed the cage to ensure it can withstand huge forces. My friends and I trust this with our lives - we’ve taken it rallying, off roading and drifting.
Q: Has it been in an accident?
A: Surprisingly, no. We actually stripped a perfect accident free car to get this end result (carfax or carproof will show this). It has hit a pole while in my possession, but that barely made a dent.
Q: Why did you build it?
A: For fun. Also cause i suck at driving, so wanted to practice drifting. See video:
Q: Why only $2k?
A: I spent over twice that amount prepping the car. $2k on the purchase + $3k in parts and materials to build the cage & replace maintenance items (new brakes, wheel bearing, rear axles, LSD etc.) I’m leaving the country this summer so need to sell my toys (I have a Porsche 911 for sale too!).
To sweeten the deal, I’ll throw in an extra set of drift rims, 8 (EIGHT) extra tires and a manual tire changer. This is everything you need to get started with drifting!
