have a 94 cobra and have a friend that wants to trade me an old project car (65 mustang coupe) for a full saleen body kit including front, rear bumpers, side skirts with door fillers, S-281 spoiler, new screen kit, and all the decals, chrome 18x9 front and 18x10.5 rear saleen wheels never mounted kit is still in black primer and never been painted. he had it on his 98 cobra and everything seemed to fit good, but he bought a real 96 saleen and doesnt want the other stuff anymore what do you guys think???? would my car look good as a saleen it is rio red and all the saleen decals are silver let me know what you guys think O0

i think it would look badass, as far as the silver decals, not so much. black saleen decals would look a ton better than silver. IMO i would trade him, have yourself a faleen, throw the supercharger on it and be done. P.S., i live about an hour away from you rio94.

I like the SN95 Saleen kit but i like the stock Cobra look even more...have you priced out what your 65 is worth? You might make out better just selling it to someone who is looking to take on a project.

i dont think your getting the good end of that trade... i guess it is hard to say w/o knowing more about your 65 but @ 70% done i would think it was worth more than the saleen body kit. I also like the stock cobra over the saleen. If you really want the saleen kit and you want to get rid of the 65 then it might be better to just sell the 65 and buy the kit from him.

i say it is 70% done but i started on this thing when i was 15 and some of the things that have been done i would like to change now. it is time now replace the floor pans because of rust, started this and it just seems every piece you cut out you find more rust :rant: so you get to the point you get tired of it and it is taking up one of my garages just want it gone, and then he offered up this deal

Value wise I would say keep the coupe and not do the trade.
