I Wish I Was Ready to Buy..

I know its a Mustang and not my intention, but really a deal like this (at least on paper though the listing seems authentic and professional), that this is an amazing deal:

Cars for Sale: 1999 Ford Mustang Cobra Coupe in DAYTONA BEACH, FL 32114: Coupe Details - 266235927 - AutoTrader.com

A car like that with all of those goodies is not one I'd pass up. What do you think?

Whether or not you dig it, you have to admit its a LOT of car (and spare engine) for the money.... If the carfax is good, no rust and a straight chassis- I'd buy it on the spot..

So tempted to do a road trip down there and steal that biotch, so sexy looking!!!!!

I would be weary about it since it's a V6 conversion to Cobra...make sure they didn't take any shortcuts when doing it. For the price, I personally wouldn't even look at it knowing that it's a conversion..if I were to pick up a car that were stock, then do it myself, that's one thing, but to buy someone else's project (possible headache in the making).

Just my opinion.

Beautiful car, but I personally find a deal that good to be too good. Considering I bought my Cobalt off through my dealer uncle off a dealer auction site (which usually has cheaper prices) for $4,400, and it had 65,000 miles, I find it very hard to believe that a car as beautiful as this would go for even cheaper.

If it's not a scam though, the dealer is ripping himself off :\.

Its a private seller, and he did mention there ARE issues with the car.

His words:

what needs to be repaired the synchro sleeve for second gear is a little bit sticky it has a broken exhaust hanger and the oxygen sensors all can be fixed for $150.00

But that is still really low for those problems.

This is why I would be leery...he did all that work and spent a ton of money (engine alone is more than half what he wants) and he says the problems are minor...there's always a chance the problems could be worse than he says or more unknown issues or whatever...but it's your money and it would be a fun car...personally I'd go for a 03-04 Mach 1. I love the shaker hood. A Terminator would be better yet, but too much money for me.
