Photos look great that he emailed me but when i googled 88-0164 it came up in another forum under a 2008 posting as being for sale with 130k miles.
Ive asked him several times for the VIN info and he has yet to respond. I live in Daytona Beach and he has agreed to drive the car up for me.
Should I be concerned? Sounds like a speedo switch to me
Any help will be appreciated before I drop almost 10k
The Fox Mustangs would only go to 99,999 miles before clicking back to zero. So if it's got 132,000 miles, it would only show 32,000 on the odometer.
If he's advertising it with 32,000 miles and it really has 132,000 miles, that would not be kosher.
Saleen #88-0164 is a black hatchback with grey/titanium interior and has JF183979 as the last digits of the VIN.
Be careful -- knowledge is power -- and Good luck!
