Default Cost?

Well i just got the okay from my parents today that if i save up enough money i can buy my self a 5.0 liter....

By the end of my summer ill have about 2 grand, then maybe an extra 1k from selling my current car having hte other money go back to my parents.... what kinda 5.0 can i get with about 3ish? i can deal with SOME nicks and dents, and from 1 of my previous posts i understand that the 5.0 is a hell of a resiliant engine... so what do you think? i aiming at a Convertable GT Stick Shift

i bought mine for 2350 he wanted 2700 all stock except the rims. The problems : blown heater core, headlightwire probs, and needs a new top(not real bad but could use 1 has 2 tears about 1-2in long covered by black duct tape). Runs Perrrrrfect! Very strong motor clutch and tranny. Its an auto but you hould be able to find something close to that cost +or- 1k depending on where you live and its condition. Good luck man

idk about getting a decent vert for less than 3 grand. for that amount of money the top will probably not be in very good condition and it'll cost around 1000 to get a new quality top with glass back window. you should be able to find something decent if you just shop around a lot though. good luck man

What year you looking for?

I don't think you will find a 87-93 vert for $3000 in good shape.
If you do grab it. You might find a 1983-86 vert for $3000

Good Luck
