    What do you guys think? We just sold it recently, I really miss it.

    Point of this topic is, how much do you guys think its worth? Sold it for a little less then 4k, my friend says its worth way more then that. What do you guys think?

    Clean Title, 90k Miles, 95 GT SN95 Wheels, 88 California Mas-Air Car, Equal length BBK Headers and Full Magnaflow exhaust.

    i'm not up to par on prices for fox body's but that is a damn nice car. Always like a good lookin notch. Just needs some different wheels, pro stars same color as the car w/ polished lip:bigthumb:

    We were going for the "clean stock" look. Didnt want attention from thiefs, or cops.

    Very clean, very nice! I'd say it was definitely worth the 4k, but I'm not sure how much more. At least around my area, there are still a ton of those things running around. That's the only bad thing about mustangs, everybody and their brother has one.

    if you wouldn't have already sold it I woulda given you a kick to the nuts for it. but since you already sold it I'd say it's worth a little more than what you got for it. If I had about 5k and an impulse to buy a very clean mustang I woulda payed that much for it.

    damn even though it has 90k on it, that car is clean. I dont know about anywhere else up north, but around chicago you could have probably gotten around 8. fuck salt, more around that age would have a good amount of rust already.

    90,000 miles is low for a fox body these days. but thats a fair price. if you wanted more $$$ you'd probably have to hold out longer for someone willing to pay. i sold my 88 lx hatch 5.0 for $1,500. I could have got more for it, but whatever, i needed to get rid of it to pay for my other projects, and i had just picked up a 2002 gt.

    I've never seen a clean notchback for under $6000. People think they're gold.

    for those who havent noticed by the pics yet, that car is not a notchback. it's an lx coupe(notice the trunk isnt attached to the back glass? hehe). notchback refers to the lx mustangs that had hatchbacks but were not GTs.

    if the car was as stock as you say and ran good, i would've got atleast 4500-6k for it. especially considering coupes are harder to find and weigh less than the other mustangs.

    Wrong. The car pictured above is a notchback. All GTs were hatchbacks and they made LX hatchbacks as well.

    i had a dark metallic blue '92 lx hatchback(also commonly called notchbacks) . it wasnt a GT or a coupe. coupes have NO hatches. all mustangs today are either convertible or COUPES with NO hatch being attached to the back glass.
