    Odd color and crappy pictures but could be a great starting point.

    Heck yeah! For $1500, this is a no brainer. Especially with the 5.0.

    If I were closer, I'd strongly consider it. I've always wanted a Fox body 5.0 wagon. Looks like the interior needs a lot of work. And what is that huge knob on the door panel for? I can see a Fox Body Mustang person picking up this wagon, and transplanting the drivetrain into a 4 or 6 cyl car.

    My guess is that the knob is for the vent wing. That color works nice as an accent like on the P/Us but makes the car look plastic but at the price this one seems to be going for a re-spray is certainly an option. I hope one of the faithful gets her. :)

    You would take an engine out of a rare car and put it in a common car?

    That is what it is. The Crown Vics and Grand Marquis of the era have the same goofy thing.

    Looking at the photos again, I did not realize the 5.0 came with a floor shifter.
    I know for a fact that Norm's did not. :hmmm:

    Nope, that's not what I said. I said, "I can see a Fox Body Mustang person picking up this wagon, and transplanting the drivetrain into a 4 or 6 cyl car."
