Check the engine and drivetrain and if all checks out then asses rust and body panel work and if it's in rough condition I wouldn't give 500 for a foxbody mustang.

I offered 600 as is, body is 3 different colors doors drag when you open them if u can get em opened, I was informed they could,sell the stock rims for 600 lmao told em I doubt it. Thank you for the advice of what to asses

That is a pos and I would give him 450 for it and just say your going to restomod it and its gonna cost a lot of money and 99% of the time they'll cut you a deal.

I agree, I couldnt even look it up on KBB. Ive made my offer I'm,not gna offer any more. Thank you for your time.

SERIOUSLY. This car is a mess. Body conditions you mentioned make this sound like it's been in accidents. And cars like this have a LOT of hidden troubles. You could part it out, but wouldn't you think the seller has thought about that? What you'll spend in transportation, troubleshooting, and advertising parts, not to mention how this will look stored on your property, make me suggest: RUN!
