She's a beauty, what are your plans for it?

Js88lx 06-19-2013 03:59 AM

Well I like to keep a stang out the wreck yard so this one will be fixed to stock and bolt-ons, gears... And will probably sale. There's not enough 5.0s here. I need help tho. Should I keep here 4 eyed or should I do the 87-93 lx conversion? I can get any at the local junk yard.

Duncan_GT 06-19-2013 08:26 AM

Gahhhh a 4 eye! Lol. I would convert it, but if you're trying to sell it after fixing it up then just restore it to stock. Looks like quite a project. Is the front end damage all it suffered from? How's the interior and top?

dawson1112 06-19-2013 08:55 AM

I would defiantly do the conversion , especially because you need a new nose any ways.

88 orangepeel notch 06-19-2013 09:58 AM

I'd stick with keeping it stock, just to be alittle different. But if your gonna be selling her, go with the popular vote and update the nose.

Both you two need to have your heads examined!! Convert it??? Pure Blasphamy!!! What we don't need are any more 87-93 looks!! 85-86 ARE FARE MORE RARE AND UNIQUE..............OP keep the oem look of the 85-86, Sorry guys, I'm a purist!!

BabyGT 06-19-2013 04:01 PM

Keep 4 eye, better resale value.

Keep the stock look on the car, it will be worth more money when you 'sale' it.
Dunno about anybody else but I sail a boat.....

Js88lx 06-20-2013 12:27 AM

Thanks guys., Friday I'm makin a junk yard trip. Imma keep the nose stock. As you can tell by the piks the fenders where not damaged at all. Car has a clean title and the interior is brand new. I'll take piks tomorrow.

Js88lx 08-03-2013 12:03 PM

Progress!!!!! I did go to the local junk yard and saved some bucks with good parts! Very happy about that.

So I have started freshening up the motor and hopefully I can get her started for the 1st time later today! Here are some picks.

That cobra is slick looking. I've been looking for a fox project too

Js88lx 08-11-2013 11:09 PM

thanks! i love it! Its my 1st sn-95 and i guess its pretty rare. i think only under 1500 where built with the blk on blk for 94 and 95 5.0 cobra.

I always wanted more than 1 stang so iam pretty happy to have 2!
