    Default bringing back a 1982 GT

    Picked up this 1982 Mustang for $1050. It hasn't been on the road since 1993. So every system has to be gone thru.

    Thank you! They are definitely cool looking. You kind of get the pace car styling and and a little Capri mixed in.

    Tracked down the second owner of this car and it has an interesting history. He bought the car in 1984 at a Ford dealer in Lubbock Texas for $6500 with 12,000 miles on it. He said he traded in his 1978 Cobra II for it and they gave him $2000 on the trade-in. He had the car for 1 week and flames started to shoot up from the shifter(cat caught on fire.)! Luckily the fire department was across the street and only the interior and windshield were destroyed.
    The car then sat at the dealer for a year till he hired a lawyer and sued Ford. He said they offered to pay off the balance of the loan($4800) and he could keep the car. So he took the deal.
    He then got a job in Tennessee and had a shop get the car drivable for the trip to Knoxville.
    when he arrived in Knoxville he said a middle easterner pulled out in front of him and he smashed him pushing in the front end. He got the car driveable buying parts from a local salvage yard.
    Then one night he was partying with some new friends and ended up rolling the car over. Crushing the T-top roof in. So he got a parts car and had a hardtop welded in! After that (1993) he planned to rebuild the engine for more horsepower till he lost interest and sold it last year to my buddy who sold it to me.

    So now it has 1979 door panels. I don't know what year the dash is out of but the switch for the rear wiper is gone and the steering wheel says SVO on it.
    He called the car the Grey Ghost because he felt he should have died in it three times!
