I want the vendor knew in regards to the automotive he was promoting to me.
‘98 Mustang GT 5-speed. Solely factor the vendor knew in regards to the automotive was the “motor rebuilt 50k in the past”. Properly, the odometer was caught on 194k, so who is aware of what number of miles the automotive/engine had on it. He claimed the remainder of the physique was manufacturing facility regardless of the plain:
-cobra entrance bumper rattle-canned with overspray on the headlights
-aftermarket wheels (with overspray on the tires)
-drilled & slotted rotors and painted calipers
-aftermarket head unit.
What I discovered after 4 months of possession:
-some form of aftermarket exhaust that was hung to the automotive with no matter you will discover within the exhaust aisle at Autozone
-lowering springs with manufacturing facility shocks
-half assed put in brief throw shifter. No gasket or RTV was used. 2/4 bolts have been backed out by hand
-rear gears usually are not the manufacturing facility 3.27, additionally wanted new seals and shims
-3 totally different spark plug manufacturers together with 7/8 being platinum plugs and one being copper
For the worth I paid for a operating handbook V8, I don’t have any animosity in opposition to the vendor. However a bit heads up would have been good
Shopping for a modified automotive leaves you with a number of threat, however a number of potential for reward. You don’t know the way properly elements have been put in, in the event that they’re of a very good high quality, or if the earlier proprietor acquired duped and unknowingly purchased knockoffs. However, if the whole lot’s legit, you possibly can rating a deal.
