Looking at that tire and how it is cocked in, I would just about bet the unibody isn't straight.
I would steer clear of it personally.
Agreed. If it's bent up then the performance will almost certainly be permanently compromised, let alone the safety. I'd pass, personally. Save up & get a nicer one - will be the better deal in the long run.
I could understand a younger guy wanting a newer Mustang and the only way in is with a repairable.
How much does the seller want for this car?
Looks like you will need a visit with the frame alignment shop, both rear quaters & a rearend. I would start calling the Auto Body Shop Schools.....the teacher/students love Mustang projects like this!!! Your expenses wouldn't be that much....the school supplies most of the materials. Rear quaters are $500 a side, rear bumper cover $150 and you have a rear for $600....the school might get the quaters cheaper. It's worth looking into if you get the car cheap. Good luck
