    [h=2]1999 mustang BOSS 35th anniversary edition - $3000 (banister & Ben white)[/h]Not looking forward to selling this car, especially at this price. This car has been my baby for many, many years. My brother was original owner and bought it new in 1999. I took it over from him after he passed away in 2004. It needs a little TLC, but nothing major is wrong. Needs a new EGR valve ($44.99-autozone) and a new fuel neck filler seal. Other than that everything is good. Runs great, plenty of power! It has a 3.8L dohc Aluminum block engine. transmission rebuilt at 135k miles. Clutch replaced with a performance clutch at 128k miles. new spark plugs and wires. new coil pack. could use some new tires. I hate to sell this car as it not only has sentimental value, but I've always dreamed of upgrading the holy heck out of it- It would then be my ultimate dream car. If you've got the money for the aftermarket parts, you can easily get this thing upwards of a 1000 hp. there's a reason so many super cars use a 3.8L engine and that because it has the potential to push out more than any 5.0 could ever do! It has 160K miles. price is $3000 FIRM. Serious Inquiries only. please respect my time, don't waste it. call, text, or e-mail to schedule a test drive

    Someone should call and ask him if it had SRS on the airbags.
    Then tell him it's a special edition "Special Race Series"

    I wonder if when he went to Autozone to check that EGR cost, he asked for the 99 Boss 3.8 DOHC. They probably laughed it up and told him a CAI will get him to 500hp easy! :)

    NOT a 35th anniversary edition either. Just because it has the 35th anniversary badges they think its special.
