Default are 2 mustangs better then 1?

i have 2 mustangs in my area that are for sale. the first is a 87 GT 5spd that need a fuel pump from what the owner tells me. the second is a 90 LX 4cyl car with an auto trans. i am looking to get an lx body style and i am thinkin of getting both. the GT i can get for under $1000 and the lx will b delivered to my front door for $500.

is it worth the time, effort and insurance savings to swap GT parts to the lx? i like working on cars and should have access to all the cutting/welding implamants i might need

If the LX is a notch, go for it. If not just remove all the ground effects off the GT and call it a day
