I am selling my 1995 thunderbird lx. As the title says the car has a 4.6 DOHC engine out of a mark VIII swapped in, as well as a TR3650 5 speed. The car runs great and it is tons of fun to drive. Everything on the car works as it should. The car is currently showing alittle over 189000 miles. I have put around 25,000 on it since the swap. I am asking 1500 for it

The Good
The car is originally a California car, then it moved to Texas, where I bought it. It has only been though two winters in Wisconsin, and it was parked for most of them. There is no rust on the car.
I have upgraded the front brake calipers to the mustang PBR units.
I have also replaced the front tie rods and and balljoints with motocraft parts.

The parts for the swap are as follows:

1994 DOHC Mark VIII motor with 125,000 miles.
Low miles TR3650 transmission from 2008 mustang GT.
New take out flywheel/clutch/pressure plate from similar year mustang.
Used super coupe clutch pedal and master cylinder.
Tuning from Don @ Lasota racing
Custom aluminum Drive shaft.

The Bad
The paint is showing its age, the clear is faded on the roof and on the back bumper, and there are small cracks/chips on the leading edge of the hood.
The drivers side mirror has been replaced with a blue one.
I have the correct rear wheels for it, they just need new tires. I will include both sets of wheels with the sale.
The car is located in Baldwin Wi
If you are interested in the car give me a call @ 715-441-0763

I am always looking for excuses to get down to Texas for a visit. I am sure we could figure out a way to get the car back down there.

We'll find out if I trashed my motor or not with my blown relocation line tomorrow. If it is blown, I may be looking at your car.

If you are interested in the car give me a call @ 715-441-0763
You mention moving, when does the car need to be out of there. Paying for the car is no issue, but arranging pickup, etc is easier without a tight deadline. Would you feel comfortable with someone driving it home 800 miles? Obviously things can happen but is there any current issue that would make you recommend a trailer vs road trip?

Please let me know. Thanks, Brian
