    Welcome. Tell us more.

    I especial like the supper clean minimalist look with the deleted bumper trim on the white bumpers. Fiberglass? I presume?

    Is the front bumper done the same way?

    Kirban 2 cents worth

    Nice car some old school parts on it...example gauges over glove box....

    Your car appears to be a Turbo-T however door panels are from a Limited....

    You get a chance decode your trunk ID label....

    Not sure where in PA you are...but as it has been mentioned the biggest spring gathering is at my shop it is my 30th year over 4 grand donated on raffle items....rain or shine april 22nd plumsteadville, pa north of Phialdelphia.....

    Your name 93 notch back I assume you had a Mustang notchback popular fox body....we are the company that supplies all the mustang companies with the billet adjustablefuel regulator....for 20 plus years...known as billet or kirban it was the only one tested that fit under 16 different intakes on the fox body engines 5.0.....anderson motorsport in clinton Ill did it a few years back...

    your in fr a shock mustang versus turbo regal....parts are not as plentiful.....however value is greater.....

    I have dash plate where gauges are and it says limited also...unfortunately the deck lid was replaced...so that label is not for this car...Will the vin tell if its a limited? 1G4GM1179HP4XXXXX The car has been repainted

    Welcome to the club. The fifth spot in your vin (M) identifies it as a Limited. However, Limited's came with a column shifter, different seats than what you have, plusher carpet... hmmm...

    Kirban 2 cents worth

    I figured the car is a mix of parts....based on seeing just the door panels.

    As you other photos show and has been pointed out it was a Limited column shift car....probably well optioned as the radio is the top of the line radio it was like a $504 option....

    Plus concert sound in the door panels.

    does the car still have the 2 VIN decals on the drivers door jamb area...?

    Prior to your purchase did you run a car fax?

    Get the car on a lift check VIN on engine block to see if it matches...

    Again I am not picking on your car just trying to help you access what you got.

    Is the carpet on the floor the plush high pile carpet as Limiteds had them....never mind I see car has black carpet so that has been changed.....

    got any engine photos?

    Add to and /or modify this write-up and use this description of your upgrades in your signature file. This way when you write into the board for advise or to share info, others can view it before responding. It saves you a little trouble having to describe your combo every time you make a post.

    Sorry to here about the Accel engine management system. It worked for years for so many though.

    Ahhhh, makes sense now. Also, going from a column to floor shifter required a switch to bucket seats. If you did not already know that Limited dash plaque is special. Only on the Limited's did they light up. It's a very soft light though, you would not be able to see it during the day with your lights on. Good luck with the car. Should be a screamer once you get it sorted out.

    Love them Old School Gauges, If you're in the York, PA area, you need put a hard effort in contacting Jim Dunne in Philadelphia.
    Jim knows the T/B thoroughly. And will have that white beast at peak performance.

    Dale Cherry of Injection Connection in Horsham, PA is one of the best tuners in the area.

    Run that white beauty up to Harrisburg, there's a bunch of us with serious metal that get together frequently.
