    Hi guys, I own a 95 GT that I rescued from a salvage yard with just a transmission problem. I have owned it now for a year and a half.

    Welcome to the site.
    Doesn't look too bad, auto or stick?

    I'm not sure really. Been wanting to fix the little bit of a rough idle, synchronizers in transmission, and service the differential. The car has to over 255,700 miles on the odometer which I believe all of them on the original engine

    Sounds good to me. Throw some gears at it while you're in there? I'm sitting at 194,500 miles right now. Just changed the oil pan gasket on the motor. Does it have different lower body trim on each side? Top pic has it split, second has the later style.

    The top pic is from what it looked like when i got it from the salvage yard. The second pic is when I bought some body parts hood, drivers fender, front bumper cover from a V6 Mustang with the E8 color code in Indiana yard since the cheapest body show guy gave me an estimate of $800 paint job for those pieces to be painted. I just got tired of looking at all that primer. The car is stock just changed the water pump, thermostat, new brakes all around, new fuel tank, and filler tube gromet, MAF, spark plugs and wires, distributor cap, new coil, battery, clutch since i got it. Next will be the O2 sensors

    Welcome. Watch the distributor in it. Our cars are notorious for the stator breaking down and causing problems.

    You don't have to mess with it. It just breaks down from heat and age.
