I agree with everyone else who said this car is overpriced. I bought my 05GT 3 years ago with 14K miles on it for $21.5K.

I meant that by putting on 4.10's you'd be pretty much voiding the warranty for the whole rear axle. The new body parts are also probably not covered.
The 3.73 gears are the highest I'd get for a daily driver, especially if you travel long distances. If not go ahead and get the 4.10's for great acceleration.

And before you spend $21,000 on a Mustang look at all the hundreds of others for sale for that price (or less).

I would avoid that car. Like mentioned before it's oddly dirty as hell underneath the hood. I may believe it for a car that's going to deal with winters, rain, possible dirty or dirt roads in those climates but you are buying this car in southern California. I would get a CARFAX on that car to make sure something is hiding in its past. That body kit makes me suspicious that something happened to it and the body kit is how they fixed/hid it.

Also 20k is still a ridiculous price for that car. Mods to not increase the value in most cases and when its a body kit, no. Especially that body kit. It doesn't even look complete or really put on well. You can see alignment issues and the paint just doesn't quite match to me. Also they didn't even put on the rocker panel piece.

And I'm 90% sure my friend I worked with bought her Audi from there a little over a year ago. That thing was a lemon. Had so many hidden quick fixes all over. Shortly after it started to leak oil, had electrical issues involving the headlights going off over bumps.

Seriously look at the other options suggested, put your own proper Eleanor kit on and you probably will still come out ahead over that suspicious car.

thanks everybody. i appreciate it. Well the car was purchased form a gentleman in france. he put 2k down through pay palwhen i went to test drive it. so i guess it must have been a deal for him. And you guys are right im better off goin with a used gt with low mileage for around 15-16.

Heres another thing. Im actually looking at a 04 cobra in arizona witch is around 390 miles away from me. It has 27k miles and they are asking 19,998. Im having my father go out there tommoroow to check it out. Is that a good deal for the cobra?

I bought my g/f a Legend Lime Pony Package. SWEET looking car. And you won't get any arguments over LL's from pascal, either.

take a good look at the suggested used ones. for the money you would be saving, you could mod the crap out it, and come away better than an 04.

Pascals car is what made me look for a LL, so I credit him as being the official LL spokesman.

And I agree with everyone else about the car seeming fishy. I like the seats, but something seems really off about it to me. Something about the way the right quarter meets with the passenger door seems "iffy" to me.... Plus 22K seems like a major over-price. I hate it when dealers put some stickers on an otherwise plain car and raise the price by 30 percent. Thank God its going to France... Too bad that lovely white interior will end up with wine and cheese stains all over it.

^^^I agree...for that price, those miles and it already has the conversion done with custom leather added. Someone has already done some of the work you might have wanted to do anyways!!

i know it's been said already, but that's WAY too high for what that car has...i just bought a 07 GT with 15k miles not too long ago and i got it for under 20k(before state sales tax) you should look around, you'll find a way better deal, save more money, and be able to mod the car ALOT better than that one

The price is a bit high. If you don't have the money to mod a less expensive Stang and really like the silver one, then ask around 18K for the car. Either they say "yes" or "no", never hurts to try. ;-)
Good luck with your decision!

I agree, the LL that's forsale above with the GT500 conversion looks like a really sweet deal. My only concern is that when you look at cars that you know have had modifications like this, make sure to spend addtional time looking over the car to ensure it was done correctly. You don't want to buy someone else's mistake or problem.

Good luck with your search!
