Possibly buying Mustang- First Car

<< < (4/4)

Everyone here makes a great point. Since it is a used car you are taking a big chance that the car might have problems. The magnet trick works well to see if the any of the body panels have been replaced. You definitely want to check the engine for major problems such as compression, oil leaks, and any other major problems with the trans and other major parts. If you do put more power to the car make sure you upgrade the trans. A complete engine rebuild all depends on what you want to do, if you want to rebuild it yourself it will be fairly cheap, because you can reuse a lot of parts and all you would have to pay for would be the machining and any replacement part. A complete rebuild done at a shop will be more expensive because of the labor involved. Good luck

Yeah, if the engine needs a rebuild, and you have a garage or shop with an engine puller or cherry picker, you can rebuild it yourself at a fraction of the cost of a machine shop doing the entire rebuild.  But you need a lot of tools and some mechanical savvy to do it yourself.

It is better for you to buy a used car for your mustang first car. It is more convenient for you to buy cheaper at least.

Hey Billy....welcome to the site.  I bought my first Mustang when it was 30 years old.  She still runs like a Banshee Indian.
