Sagging door probably just needs new pins and bushings in the hinges.

...for $1500 & some TLC not a bad deal if the car runs good & is not a rust bucket!

If no major mechanical or rot issues, sounds like it could be a good project. Just gotta remember good bodywork/paint are expensive.

Yep, prices for body trim and body parts are ridiculous. 200 bucks for door trim. Just make sure all the side skirts and ground effects are in good condition. I don't think you can find those parts anymore accept for a junkyard.

check under the hatch and doors for rust...those mods may indicate a beat motor..check for oil soak all on the trans tunnel under the car...the grind is notorious in every 5.0....the second gear synchro is shot...for the grinding issue...other than that check it out..a nice cheap project...make sure you drive it though!!!and check the brakes!!!

Another ruined 4 eye =(

It could be a good car just as long as there is no major rust rot
