2002 Ford Mustang GT


Title: 2002 Ford Mustang GT5 speed

Mileage: 40,300 miles

Location: Brevard, NC

This car is a 1 owner Mustang that has been very well taken care of. I purchased this car from Ken Wilson Ford in Canton North Carolina on 08/21/2002. The car has never been abused in any way and has only been driven by the owner. The majority of the miles on the car are interstate vacation miles. This Mustang manufactured 7\2002 and has the Romeo engine block (not the windsor) with the TR3650 transmission. The wheels on the car are the true bullitt wheel color, not the shiny silver color that was a replacement in 2003.

Mechanical / Exterior

This car has been very well kept and is VERY clean. I have all of the service records for this car and it has been properly maintained using only Genuine Ford MotorCraft Fluids and Filters where applicable. At 20,000 miles the car was changed to Mobile 1 full synthetic oil and have been changed every 3,000 miles due to lack of use of the car. The hood on the car was replaced due to a Ford factory recall by the dealer and is a genuine FoMoCo (Ford) hood. The right front fender of the car has a small scratch in the paint, but not into the metal just above the GT emblem. The rear bumper has a small nick inside the "G" in the word Mustang. Other than these two very minor flaws that I couldn't capture in a picture the exterior of the car is perfect.

The car also has a new set of BF Goodrich G-Force Sport 245/45-ZR17's with less than 9,000 miles. This set of tires was installed in April of 2006.The Mustang has new Wagner Thermo-quite brakes, MotorCraft rotors, and MotorCraft calipers on the front.The air filter has been replace with a K&N filter, which has just been cleaned.I have also had Flomaster Super 40 mufflers installed on the car. Nice deep rich tone without the harsh interior resonance with the original 40 series.
Interior
Other than normal use the interior of the car is virtually flawless.

Options
The car is a Premium Package 5 speed car with Leather, Mach 460 sound system, 6 disc CD changer. I did add a full size spare in the trunk of the car removing the temporary spare cover. I did cut the carpet to fit in the spare tire well which made a very neat job. I also added an American flag horse in the front grill and I have also added a Mach1 chin spoiler.

This is a beautiful, restored Mustang. The car is a 1967 Coupe, Acapulco Blue with black interior. The car has a 2.3 liter engine from a 1987 Turbo Coupe. The rearend is the factory Thunderbird posi unit with 3.50 gears. The car is unbelievable. 0-70 in 4 seconds, 21 MPG. The origional Mustang C4 with the insides from a big block van tranny. The big servo and a 2200 stall converter. Engine, transmission are both rebuilt, only the best parts. New stuff everywhere. No strange sounds, no vibration, just get in and go.
It looks completely stock, You can drive around and you would think you are driving your dads old gas saver, unless you step to far down on the gas. This car begs to be driven, you want to get in it and just drive. Drives very nice, not loud or clunky. The suspension is taunt and it handles very nice.
The trunk is also detailed with wood filler in the fender wells and trunk liner over everything, matching tire cover, trunk is complete with spare tire and origional attachment hardware with origional ratchet style lug wrench (OEM). Wiper blades are OEM, great attention to detail on this one.

1980 Ford Mustang Sport


Title: Beautiful '80 FORD MUSTANG

Mileage: 89,156 miles

Location: Wisconsin

Here's my 1980 Mustang 3-door Sport Hatchback. I've owned the car since 1994 and the car has been in constant indoor storage since 1987 when the original owner parked the car due to carburetor problems. I am the second owner of this Mustang.

This Mustang has less than 90,000 original miles. It has been driven less than 500 miles since 1987 when it was put into storage. It was used for a number of years as a college car by the children of one of the ministers at our church. You'll see it still has the college parking stickers on it from Missouri and Rhode Island. The car saw only seven years of use before it was put into storage. Seven years later I bought the car and began having it restored. It started out as a car with very little rust, no rust holes or underbody rot. This is a very solid little Mustang. The car has NEVER been in an accident. However before I bought the car someone gave it a "key job" down both sides of the car. The paint was faded and there were some small surface rust spots in several areas. So I had the body shop repair all damaged areas and had the car professionally repainted in the original Bittersweet Orange paint, code 2G Ford. As you can see the paint and body work turned out great. The interior needed some work so I pulled out every panel except the dash board. To date I've invested about $3500 to $4000 into the car by my estimate, $750 last summer alone on mechanicals.

Mechanical Condition: The car has a strong 2.3 liter 4 cylinder engine. I've had the compression checked and it is like new. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly. There was a "clunk" in the rear axle so I had it upgraded by my mechanic to a low-mile 7.5 sized rear end. It originally came with a 6.75 rear end but the gears are no longer available for that. The rear end is quiet and smooth now. Based on the rearsearch I've done here are the 3 rear end sizes used by Ford on the early to mid 1980's mustangs: There were three different ring gear sizes from '79 through '86; 6.75", 7.5", and 8.8". It hasn't been determined with any certainty what vehicles got the 6.75" rear, but it was last used in the '82 model year, and models with a 2.3 turbo or V8 did not have it. Models with a 2.3 turbo or V8 through '85, and non V8 models in '86 had a 7.5" rear. Models with a V8 in '86 had an 8.8" rear. This information is from the archives at foureyedpride.com - an enthusiast site that is especially for the "Fox" Mustangs built from 1979 to 1986. http://www.foureyedpride.com/joom/index.php The original muffler is still on the car, but just barely, as there is rusted pipe behind it. Rather than put a cheap muffler on the car I'm leaving it to the next owner to determine the best way to repair it. The catalytic converter is fine. Also, when I lived in a testing zone city I took the car in for smog testing and it passed with no modifications or repair needed. The air conditioning is intact and complete. I know that the 1979 to 1993 Fox body Mustangs have tremendous commercial support, including all new AC system availablility.
Interior Condition: Thanks to the years and years of indoor storage the dash pad is perfect! This can be an expensive repair if the car is left out in the sun instead of stored in a garage. I think a new dash pad would be about $250 so there's a savings for you right there as opposed to most Mustangs of this vintage. The rest of the dash is very good to excellent. The chrome on the control levers needs polishing and everything needs a good cleaning. A perfect rear seat and a very good passenger bucket seat. As you can see the driver's side bucket needs upholstery work. The front seat belts are still installed, so the car is driveable just point A to point B. That's to get it to various shops as needed for restoration purposes. The dashboard is all there except the glove box. Also in the car is the original black carpet.
Exterior Condition: Stored indoors since 1987 by original owner. Stored indoors since 1994 by second owner (me). Virtually no rust prior to professional paint and body work in 1994. There are a few scuffs and a few dimples on the car since it was painted but no damage and nothing that stands out. The original chrome trim was removed from the windows for painting and then reinstalled. Same for the tail lamps, head lamps, cowl trim, etc... The car presents very well and has a great shine. NOTE: The car shines as nicely as you see in spite of NEVER having been wet sanded, rubbed out, or waxed after the paint job. I'm sure with the finishing touches to the paint you'd REALLY be amazed at the shine!
Other Condition Coments: As far as I know the car has no leaks and no mechanical issues other than that mentioned above. I'm not a mechanic, but I am incredibly fussy when it comes to restoring and maintaining my vehicles. This car was no exception. I've really enjoyed owning this Mustang, even though must of the fun was dreaming about making it a concourse show car someday. I've purchased literally thousands of dollars in show-car quality NOS parts over the years.

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302


Title: 1970 Boss 302 Mustang Solid Body Project

Mileage: 100,000 miles

Location: College Park, MD

1970 Gold Boss 302 Mustang. I have the Marti Report for this Boss and this is how it was built with VIN #0T02G152142: Boss 302 (code G), bright gold metallic paint (code K), black deluxe knit woodgrain interior w/clock (code EA), 3.50 traction-lok 9-inch rear (code S), 4-speed close ratio trans (code 6), fold down rear seat, AM/FM stereo w/door speakers, d├ęcor group and convenience group. This Boss was produced January 20, 1970.

This is a solid project Boss 302. It has the Boss reinforced shock towers and staggered rear shocks. All sheet metal is original to this car except for the new floors and a re-skined driver door. The body is solid. The doors close nicely. The frame rails are all rust free including the front shock towers, torque boxes, floor supports, front rails and rear frame rails. Parts of the floors have been replaced (see photo). The original quarters are decent and this car is not full of bondo. However, the driver rear quarter has some rust/bondo on the very bottom (see photo). Also, the passenger door has some rust in both lower corners (see photo). This is minor rust below the driver rear tail light. The hood and trunk lid are very nice with no rust. The front fenders have no rust and are the original flared Boss 302 fenders. The vin# is clearly stamped on the passenger inner apron and original Ford vin# tag is on the dash. The motor in this car is NOT a Boss 302, but just a regular 302. It has all the clutch linkage and bellhousing with a new Centerforce clutch installed. It has a new long gas line and gas tank. The clutch pedal action is good and tight. I do NOT have a transmission for this car and the rear is a 28 spline 9-inch. It has a good radiator. The cowl is very nice and rust free. The passenger door glass is nice and lines up good when closed. The driver door glass is out. This is how I purchased this Boss last year. I do not have a front windshield. All the fold down seat parts are there. I believe it has the original AM/FM radio. Steering feels tight and I believe that when I install a transmission, this car would be drivable as is. So this is my starting point!

My first car in 1978 was gold (I called it butternut) 1970 Boss 302 with deluxe ginger interior, and I regretted selling it to stay in college ever since it drove away. Ford made 337 gold Boss 302s in 1970. Deluxe interior Boss 302s are rare at under 10 percent of production. AM/FM stereo is very rare. I looked a long time for another gold Boss 302 with deluxe interior and I purchased this car last year.
