    So I've been around these forums for a decade now, and the day has come. As most of you know I've been tossing around the idea of selling the car, and I have decided it's come time to part ways. Anybody that has been around these forums knows how much time/money is put into this car and anybody who has seen it in person can vouch that this is probably one of the cleanest sn95's you'll see. Car is located in NJ. All information listed below along with some pictures. I am in no rush to sell this car, and will not even entertain any low ball offers. This car overall is a 9.5/10, for an almost 20 year car with mostly original paint. I am going to try to sell the car "as-is" in the beginning here. If I don't have any luck over time, I will consider pulling engine/trans and trying to sell as a roller and sell engine/trans separately. Please spread the word to any of your car buddies/family looking for a one of a kind sn95 with a ridiculous amounts of time/money into it. Any questions I would be glad to answer, I've owned this car the past 11 years. I have clean title in hand. Asking $15,000 firm as the car sits.

    1997 Ford Mustang GT
    Miles: 52,3xx (original miles on body)
    Engine/blower/etc has anywhere from 1,000 - 5,000 miles on it
    Car is obviously garage kept and never driven in rain/snow

    The good:
    Body - near flawless
    Paint - Excellent condition. Normal minor things, but would probably have to point out in order for you to notice
    Car made 600rwhp through a 2v built auto at 19psi
    Have list below of over $30k just in parts and this is off the top of my head

    The bad:
    Car is down on power. Think it may be a pinched piston ring. I don't have the time or patience anymore to diagnose the issue. Still makes over 400rwhp, but most likely a ring that has to be replaced. Car starts, idles, cruises perfectly fine. A/F ratio is spot on, making 19psi, just down on power currently.

    List of modifications off top of my head, and what I paid to show an idea of what is into this car:

    I considered doing the work, but I'm just exhausted of ripping motors/transmissions/rearends out of this car and I don't even use it.
