My wife’s dad passed away earlier this year and I feel more passionate making room to restore his “seasoned” Buick Grand National than I to hang onto this car.

Black 1996 Mustang Gt (NPI) 166,000 miles

Exterior:
-Cobra hood & bumpers
-Saleen rear spoiler
-17” gt wheels currently on car
-extra set of 18” terminator wheels painted bronze
-Depo corner lights, cobra headlights, envoy fogs
-1.5” drop springs

Interior:
-V6 black front & rear seats
-converted to all black interior & carpet
-kenwood touch screen double din stereo with Bluetooth & apple play
-boost gauge & AEM wideband
-10” subwoofer with 1000w amp in trunk


Drivetrain:
-Stock block & internals 4.6 2v
-FRPP 42# injectors
-Walbro 255lph fuel pump
-Stock 3.27 rear end
-Comp cams xe262ah
-FRPP roots supercharger
-BBK off-road x pipe
-borla catback
-newer FRPP clutch, flywheel, and TOB
-SCT X4 with remote tuning done by dirtydirtyracing.com

Engine bay:
-minor wire tuck
-battery in trunk
-Scott Rod side panels
-alternator relocated to A/C location (a/c not currently hooked up but still have all the parts).

lots of other new parts over the years including full brakes, radiator & hoses, routine maintenance items for a car this old. Also have lots of extra/ stock parts that will come with the vehicle.

Not sure what a fair price would be but I’d like to get $6000 since I’ve dumped a lot more than that into it. It runs great and I have not driven it a ton since the supercharger and tune was dialed in.

Not in a rush to sell but I want to get it on the forum first because I feel like I’d be happier seeing it go to one of you guys (gals) that have helped me navigate through a lot of obstacles making it what it is today.

You put your blood, sweat, and tears (plus a lot of time and money) into getting that car where it is. Grand Nationals are very cool cars, though, I understand that it is time to move on. I hope your beast finds a good home.

Well there you go.....aint none of us gonna buy it, therefore youll keep it always. I feel like people would rather shed out $6k for a pos foxbody before they would spend that on a really nice modular sn95. With that said, the car will remain in your possession.

Im kidding! I am saddened tho. Watching you evolve the car into something great! I understand with you tho. Family and a grand national.....win win!

If you get a buyer who wants the car but doesn't want the blower, I would be interested in working a deal. I have both stock and Accufab plenums and throttle bodies, and stock and PI intakes.

I’ve had a lot of fun and learned how to be patient working on these mod motors. Hopefully someone smarter than me can enjoy the Frankenstein parts pile I’ve put together.

GLWS.. Please chronicle the GN here! I love those cars.

I’m going to stick around regardless if I sell this thing. You all have seen how slow I get things done in this car but getting that GN out of the family garage (at her uncles mercy) will be even slower.

You’re probably right! I only posted it here because I know everyone here is as passionately invested into their car and not looking to buy another. It won’t sell here but it’s the first step!

I’ll keep you posted, probably won’t sell for some time but this is the first step in realizing I may need to move on. If by some chance someone wants it NA I’ll let you know

Sold the car today. I thought I’d be more emotional about it but I think I’ve become less sensitive after seeing a few loved ones pass away in the past few years and selling my 4x4 swapped Ranger with a cracked frame (that I said I’d never part with) to a scrap yard earlier this week.

The car served me well and I had a blast with it while learning a lot, but it was time to move on and finally unchain myself from student loan debt.

The new owner was cool as hell and was ok with all the issues I fully disclosed. I’m happy for my garage space back and hope to start another build with my late father-in-laws Buick Gand National one day. Until then I’ll be lurking around these forums and hoping the new owner takes my advice on joining!

I remember when I sold my Road Runner. I had a ton of blood, sweat, and money in that car. Didn't hurt to see it go as much as I thought. I love the Mustang I bought to replace it, and hope you dig the GN as much.

A Road Runner would be hard as hell to let go! I’m at peace because even on good days I preferred to take my Tacoma over the mustang for some reason. I think the simplicity of a stripped down standard shift 2wd ref cab truck is more satisfying than speed.

I hope he joins but I have a feeling this car may have more personality than he bargained for. Goddamn it sounded mean standing in my driveway watching it leaving down my road though.

my mom notarized the title and even said that the car sounded great.

I paid off my student loans but immediately made an irresponsible purchase for the Taco. I’ll keep you all posted on the truck and if I ever get that Buick over here

I had owned it for over 15 years. It needed engine work and I picked the wrong shop. Every time I looked at it after that I got upset. The new owner did a full rotisserie restoration, which the car deserved. That said, if it was in the driveway again and I had a choice to drive it or the Mustang, I would pick the Mustang. The Road Runner was noisy, hot, crude, and with manual steering and brakes was a bear to drive. I like having cruise, AC, power windows/locks/seats, etc. The mustang handles much better and goes twice as far on a gallon of gas and sounds great doing it.
