Car has had a lot of work done
45000 miles
Drives great handles like its on rails
342.5 hp 356.5 tq
White with black new convertable top
Tan with black inserts
$12000 in upgrades documented including factory upgrades.

The car is pretty much perfect. Flawless inside and out. The engine could use a good cleaning but it's not dirty, just need some detailing
When I started the car it sounds great started right up But There is always a but isn't there. The amber check engine light stayed on
I noticed during the test drive that the RPMs didn't drop as fast as they should. Apparently that is a common issue with these cars and custom tunes.
It does have an aftermarket chip and is not the stock tune. From what I'm reading this is most likely the cause of the amber light.
They are going to put it in the garage and see what the code is I will go back there Monday after work and see what they say

$17500 asking price have not started negotiating yet
If they cannot provide me a print out of what the code was and what is needed to fix it I will probably walk away
But if they can prove its an issue with the tune and the custom chip I will start my Offer at around $15000 Included trading in my dodge Durango Provided that it can be fixed

I had a black​ 05 GT vert a couple years ago. Loved the car other than the auto trans...

I've since given that car to my mom and "upgraded" to an 85 lx vert with a carbed 5.0 and 5 speed trans. Loving that little hot rod as well for sure.

Enjoy the Stang!

Have owned the car for a week now.

Drives great, I took it to Ohio for a weekend trip, 500 miles round trip. Got 22.6 MPG @ 70 MPH much better than the Durango.
I still have gas left over from the fill up on the return trip.

I did put the top down twice but only for a short joy ride with my sister as its still too cold and wet out.

It gets a lot of smiles and everyone wants one when they see it.
I'm happy with the purchase cant wait for warm weather so I can put the top down and go for a nice drive in the spring air.
