    I thinking about selling the stang towards the end of the summer season :-\

    Reason for this is: I'm selling my house cause were looking to build a new pad. I've got some CC debt (unfortunatly from the stang) and I need to get it paid off to help w/ a construction loan. Plus i won't have a garage to keep all my cars in for the 1yr or so while i'm building.

    I REALLY REALLY hate to even think about doing this, but i've owned the car since new in 98, so maybe it's time to move on? I still have my 65 coupe as well.

    I haven't decided what to do yet, it kinda depends on if i sell my house this year.

    My question is what is a fair price to ask for the 98? I'm thinking $10,000

    Here's the info on the car:

    98 GT 5spd 30,500 miles
    New 03 Mach 1 motor w/ 1600 miles SCT tuned by MD
    BBK LT's
    BBK O/R H
    Magnapack C/B
    FMS 4.10's
    PHP spacer
    CPR Fuel rails
    Rebuilt T-45
    Walbro 255 pump
    Pro 5.0 shifter
    MM subframes
    Eibach Pro Kit
    18x9 Chrome FR500's
    BFG KDW 2's
    03 Cobra seats
    JLT RAI

    It would be a shame to part with that car. If I was in the market, I would buy it for sure. Ten sounds too cheap with everything you've done. Gorgeous, gorgeous car.

    I would not sell it but sometimes you have to do things you don't want...i would ask for more then 10k because of the nice interior work and a 4V swap. I would try to get closer to 14-15k... atleast start high.

    if i were you i would try and sell it to friend of yours who you can trust. this way, you can buy it back when u are out of your debt. i think it would really hurt to sell that car....

    I have had and am going through that same delema, but I will not sell. If you sell the car you will most likely never get another one. It is a very tough decision to make.

    my dad is looking for a 96-98 cobra in black, white, or yellow... and around 10-12k i think.. im not even kidding you, let me talk to my dad and see if he likes your car. he is willing to drive I believe and it would go to a good home. i know you are going to wait but you could keep us in mind and when you are ready to sell, give us a call...

    that is one of the most beautiful stangs i have seen... ill call my dad up in a bit and post back on here.. my dad will love that car. good luck in your decision man, i know its a tuff one. i couldn't part with mine i dont think but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. let me know and ill let you know too.
