Looking to trade in my Stang for a daily driveable GN...e-mail me specs. I'd just like something clean and reliable, mods are welcome but nothing completely insane. Ignore me where it says "no trades", I pasted my ad from all the stang forums.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! This description, along with the actual website for the car will have full detailed description and many pics, so serious buyers only please. I want to make sure potential buyers know EVERYTHING up front so there are no surprises. I'd also like to see the car go to a good home.
Selling my baby becuase I have no time for her anymore...I almost never drive it. NO TRADES, I have to sell her. I have about $17k invested all together and you could part it out for more than what I'm asking. I'm open to reasonable CASH offers but will not even entertain lowballers, you offer me $8k and you can keep walking. It'd take twice that to build this car. This car is not "perfect", but is in great condition, especially for an 88! It is what it is, no more, no less. I have absolutely nothing to hide on this car, and would be happy to answer any and all questions! Although I do not have receipts, (i stupidly didn't keep any becaues i had no intentions of selling this car, ever) I can provide the numbers to all shops that did the work on this car so all work can be verified as to if and when it was done.
Pics are recent and it's still in this condition, but it now has no exhaust tips, black carpet, and the whole top half of the motor has been professionally powdercoated gloss black, insluding the radiator bracket. Other than that it is what you see.

All mods are 4 years old MAX and have about 8k miles on them, many parts are only 500 miles old. Mechanically it's basically been restored. Paint is 7 out of 10, it was done in 99 but still shines up nice, few rust bubbles but nothing bad.

Here's the deal, the car is a turn key 10 second car easily, but could use a few things to be totally psychotic. It put down 510hp to the tires at Crazy Horse in South Amboy, NJ and this was the BARELY-TUNED run! It's got a decent tune right now, (by Job Spetter Jr. of Turbo People). Job said word for word that he could have gotten 600 RWHP out of the car easily as it sits, but he couldn't dyno tune it to peak because it's making too much boost(18lbs) and needs to be switched to a serp belt instead of the cog setup it has currently. All mods have at most 8k miles on them, many have way less, as I've sunk well over $6000 in the car this past year. With a nice drag suspension kit and a built AOD this would be a low 10 car EASY. Motor's been 10.5 consistant in the built AOD Notch it came from with a much more restrictive intake setup and a so/so tune.

-motor consists of a virgin 27,000 original mile stock short block(all mods were added at 23k orig miles), entire motor/computer/fuel system were taken from a mid 10 second full caged notch(I have a link to the for sale ad for the notch when i bought it as a donor if you'd like to see, just ask). the motor was running mid 10's at 129mph in the notch, and that's before a lot of what's done now(since then all the following was done: all new ignition components, new upper/lower intake w/spacer, bigger throtle body/spacer, bigger injectors, better fuel pump, new computer and tune.
