    The tail end of the SVO must have been hanging out of the "barn."

    Update - 2021 - Looking to buy 81 Mustang, 82/85/86 Mustang GT, and 79 - 86 Capri (No Sunroof). Not looking for all original/show cars or convertibles - I will be modifying. Would be nice if both were - Black Interior, PW, PL, AC, No - or very little rust. Motor/Trans/Axle not important. Options negotiable with price.

    Yep, the ad does say 140,000. Just really sun faded for a "barn find."

    "Barn Find" is way over used by many... some of the paint issues may be simply a poor repaint in the past.

    Overall, not a bad car that could easily be improved upon.

    Hmmm. I think I would like to see the "survivor" cliche used in this instance. For a "barn find" I want to see a certain amount of dust and loose dirt on the car.

    I have a hard time reading in all caps. And of course it says 40100 on the side info.

    I think I'd want to look under side if it spent it's life here in the Midwest.

    Yep, salt is brutal on our cars. Maybe it was taken out of the barn only in the summer months?

    Seems nobody posts pics of the underside/common rust areas. I had cash for the 82 GT barn find car that was discussed here, but no pics of the underside, so I have to pass.
