I've attached some photos also, please confirm you've received.
1986 Mustang GT - modified - Original 5.0 replaced with a 1965 solid-lifter 289 Cobra motor, 0.30 over and completely rebuilt by my ex-GM Mechanic brother with professionally reworked 'good' heads, a wild Comp Cam, Weind very High-Rise (Similar to a Tunnel Ram and can take 1 or 2 carburators) and Holley 650 cfm Double-Pumper (also have a 750 cfm), Mac headers(need recoating), exhaust system and long chrome tips, Mallory, MSD and Accel for elec. The 289 is mated to the original type but upgraded 5-speed in the car. The car's unibody is completely braced, front and rear sway bars and includes stiffer springs as well as Tokico Gas Shocks (adjustable to 5 positions), as it was built with Road Racing in mind and also has quicker Steering. The brakes are from a Lincoln which was a straight swap and stops the car very quickly as well as allowing 5-bolt wheels. The wheels (shown in jacked-up mode) are custom, polished Aluminum with the center hubs from a Wheel shop that were licensed to build wheels with the 1970's Porsche Targa 5-spoke centers, they are 9.5" x 16" frt and 11" x 16" rear and shod with Michelin XGTZ tires; 255/50 ZR 16 frt and 315/40 ZR 16 rear. The rearend is the stock 8,8 posi of 3.73 ratio. Note that I have parts receipts.
However - here's the situation; I am the original owner having bought the car new in California, and after 175k miles on the old 5.0, I was looking to buy a stronger 5.0 or 351 Windsor crate motor, but my brother and I found this Cobra motor and he offered to build it - this was in North Carolina and he put the car together with the above-noted parts in 1997-1998. It was licensed in NC and has only been driven approximately 5K miles since built, primarily in California, but was not registered here. The car has been stored with 2 car covers, wheel covers and on jacks at my mothers house since about 2003 and has not been run since. NOTE; the engine will now start, but the carburator needs a rebuild. It had run very well and was quick, but the rear main seal needs to be a heavier wax-impregnated rope type(marine), since the old motor mated to the new trans caused oil leakage. My brother was going to do this but was not in the US for a long time and then when he came back I departed the US in 2008...so the car has just sat....so it will need the oil pan, valve cover gaskets replaced, and the carb rebuilt with a carb kit(I also have). It's really a nice car but I had a daily driver. Note that I have priced the car very reasonably at $5400. Note that the wheels themselves are worth a lot of money(they're gorgeous!) as I paid ~$1700 back then and the motor is a bit rare. The body is in very good shape, only a couple rust spots - one up high behind the 'louvers' and on the trunk drip edge. The interior is in good shape, no tears on the upholstery,but would suggest replacing the original carpeting.
