Vehicle Description

200 6 cyl., 3-speed, All Original, Runs Very Well, Recent Tune Up, Garage Kept, Private Owner Since 1990, Clear NC Title. 

  • Engine - 200 inline 6 runs very well and smooth. Recently received a complete tune up (wires, plugs, points, cap, rotor, valve adjustment, timing, carb adjustments) and a completely new cooling system (radiator, pump, thermostat, hoses). New oil change. Idles and runs smooth to factory specs. Has good oil pressure, does not smoke or rattle, and does not overheat. No major leaks. 
  • Transmission - factory 3-speed. Shifts and operates as it should. Clutch or transmission have not been overhauled during ownership. 
  • Suspension - retains all original suspension components; no replacements or overhaul since ownership; overall drives well.  
  • Brakes - retains original brake components with servicing done over the years. Next owner should thoroughly bleed and check system if the car is going to be operated more frequently. Emergency brakes do work. 
  • Tires - tires are older than 10 years and while OK for going to town and back should be replaced 
  • Mechanicals - all mechanicals work (lights, windows, doors, locks, gauges, etc.)
  • Body and Underside - This mustang is clean but is a driver quality 10-15 footer. The car was painted the dark blue in the pictures from its original butternut yellow in the early 90's. It is single stage and was meant to be a driver. It has some rust in the usual mustang areas. Around the rear quarter panel wheel wells, corner of the door, under battery tray. Frame rails front to back are solid. Front radiator core support is not rusted as many do near the battery. Firewall and front floor pan are in good shape. Rear floor pan and some of trunk pan area have softened over the years. The rockers are below average. There is minor surface rust on most of the underside. Panel fits are original with no indication of original panels repaired and the car is straight. Fitment is original. Presents itself well overall. 
  • Chrome and moulding - original mouldings, emblems, wheels, and bumpers with some imperfections. 
  • Interior - presents well. Is in very good shape. Seats retain their original vinyl well and have no tears. Carpet has faded and should be replaced. Headliner, door panels, and dash are in good shape and retain most of their original feel. All the dash components work.
  • This car is owned privately, has a clear north carolina title ready for sale, and has been garage kept. 
  • This mustang is probably not a major restoration candidate because its a T-code 6 cylinder, but it drives well and ideal for someone who wants a clean, original, unmolested mustang without the hassle of the upkeep of a fully restored car or the price tag of trying to restore it. Some areas of the car can be improved and could also be ideal for an entry level hobbyist who wants to try their hand at small restorative projects to keep the car maintained. Sorting tires, brakes, and any needed suspension items and this car can be driven reliably daily. The motor is strong and runs well and the 3-speed operates as it should. The major mechanicals needed to pass inspection are there.
