Well, I have come to the conclusion that old cars just are not for me.....to own that is. Hard to explain but I am sure alot of you know what I mean. I bought an 05 GT on a deal I could not pass up, and I am hooked. So, testing the waters as they say to see if someone wants to take the torch on my car.

What is new;

- All new metal

- All new steering parts

- New brakes including rear disc conversion

- new sway bars and shocks

- New rims/tires

- New exhaust (not installed yet)

- New rear bumper (not installed yet)

351 Cleveland

- Top end rebuild with New valves & springs, New Crane roller rockers, New Crane Pushrods.

- Crane Racing Cam & Cloyes double roller timing chain.

- MSD electronig ignition conversion, New Crane Racing Distributor, New Manifold,

New Edelbrock 650 Thunder Series Carburator.

- Hooker equal length Competition Headers, X-Pipe and Mandrel Bent Exhaust. (not installed)

- All suspension links, bushings, perchs, etc are all brand new

- Paint looks good but is single stage, has quite the shine in spite of that

- Interior is incomplete. Rear roll bar, have the upper and lower rear seat but not in car. Have usable Mach door panels that need to be painted correctly, new carpet, new matts, cool gauge package (autometer)

- New drake front springs (550??), new summit rear leafs

- Fuel cell (guy was going g machine, hence the roll bar)

- Camaro stripes....I didn't add them!! lol.

- New Mach 1 decal set in box

Very solid car with all of the hard work done. Needs lots of the little things and going over. I would like around $12K for the car. It runs and drives so I could load onto transport for someone, but I would not be taking it on a long trip in present state of completion. I could make an ebay auction if someone feels more comfortable than just giving me $12k (lol)

Hey Marcus, appreciate the details, however I am absolutely in love with my 05 so going to stay with that.

With that said, I will let the Mach 1 go for $10K firm. I need to spend a ton of money on the 05 for no apparent rational reason.

Is it really hard to move these cars? I am getting no action on ebay or here or local. Any tips?

Found your eBay ad but you didn't have any engine or interior pics. If you have some you should post them up.

Good idea... I might have it sold locally. Just had a guy in my garage looking at it for an hour, I could tell he was trying to figure out why it wasn't rusty and full of bondo and still affordable lol.

Hi, can you put up the VIN, door sticker and Marti details?

Do you have a clear title in hand?

If I didn't have mine, I'd buy it in a heart beat...sight unseen, as long as it's not a rust bucket...
