Hey guys, I haven't been on here in YEARS and I doubt any of you remember me but I spent a ton of time/money building my 96' for ESP (autocross) but then parked it after buying a Miata and let it sit for too long.

I'm wondering if $6k is too much to ask for it with all the parts, any thoughts?

I need it gone in the next month since I'm moving from Charleston, SC to Atlanta so I can't really just leave the price too high and wait for the perfect buyer which is why Im hoping you guys can help me out.

I threw up a post over in the SN95 For Sale section with the whole story but here's the part list...

DUDE!!!!! How the hell you been man??? My wife and I moved down here to Charleston 5 years ago, trailered the car down, and it just sat in the same parking spot with sta-bil in the gas tank ever since. We're moving to Atlanta in a month and the apartment we're moving to won't let us have 3 cars so it's gotta go :(

Saw your other thread, GLWS. With out a PA, Built Engine or Magnum swap I'm not seeing any high dollar, high value mod to drive the "$12k in mods".

Hell, my Cobra has $25k in Mods on a spreadsheet.

I'm doing OK Broseph.
My car sat for 8 years, and it's getting put together again now.
Wish you would just hold onto it and store it somewhere. You'll be sorrrrrrry. You loved that car.

For anybody that hasn't found the For Sale thread......



For Sale in Charleston, SC
$6,000

$12,000+ of professionally installed parts (by Albert Watson one of the top American Iron drivers/builders in the country who runs Race Louvers) with a FREE CAR!!! Some of these parts are super rare too and the prices I have below reflect what they cost me rather than what they're now worth, the R58 wheels for example go for $1,000 a set if you can even find them.

$6,000 sound like a lot for a car that doesn't run but people that know what these parts are worth could make a TON more than that in a weekend parting this thing out.

I put Sta-Bil in the car when I parked it 5 years ago and it hasn't been started since so it will need to be trailered out of here but it does still roll. At 180,000 miles it became obvious that the engine needed a rebuild as it was losing some power and blowing smoke on downshifts which was why I parked it.

There is an entire brand new center dash in the back seat and the T45 transmission is also brand new, so much so that it never had the reverse shift rod/fork TSB done so when you use reverse you need to either pull it out of gear while it's still rolling or just muscle it out after you've stopped. The transmission was ordered for a customer at a Ford dealership in 1996 and never picked up so it just sat there in a box until the dealership closed down and it was sold to me.

The convertible top is in incredible condition since I didn't put it down very often and the car has been kept under a cover for years.
The paint is rough which is why I didn't bother cleaning it for these pictures, the rear bumper, driver side rear quarter, door, Steeda wing, and trunk lid all have peeling clearcoat.

I spent many years choosing these parts for the car and dialing them in at 3 full seasons of autocrosses and you absolutely won't believe how well a 90's Mustang will go around a corner and over bumps with this setup of parts.

Here's what it sounded like before I parked it before and after the BBK Longtubes...

My guess is $2-3k. The market doesn’t care about the aftermarket parts, especially if it doesn’t run. The only way you get close to seeing $6k for the car is if you part it out, but that doesn’t seem like an option for you. In the end, it’s just any old non-running SN95 Cobra.

Wow. I remember this car back in the day on sn95forums.

Sad to see it in this state after all these years, but priorities and life change I suppose.

Don't know about the price being fair or not but there sure are some tasty parts on that car.

Maybe ask Shifty Powers if he wants to buy it for parts?
