Just got the happy/sad news that my wife is pregnant; happy for the obvious reasons but sad that I have to get rid of the Mustang I just purchased. I bought this car in March and drove it home to Perryville, MD from Pittsburgh, PA. I'll start off with the previous owner's for sale post:

1992 5.0 5 spd notch, original V8 car,deep jewel green with grey tweed interior. factory AC/radio delete. It does has PW,PL,and PM which all work.
ashtray lid and console lid also function how they should.
i am the second owner. it was a local car since new and i got it last summer from the original owner totally stock.
I have all dealer papers,service records and paperwork bought new at McCrakin ford in pittsburgh.
118K miles. only mods are Mac cat back and Mac CAI

Exterior is pretty clean and solid. clean carfax no wrecks. I did replace both front fenders 1 w/ NOS the other used oem ford b/c originals started to get bubbleing at the wheel wells and i didn't want to fix them and have rust come back months later. I still have originals and buyer is welcome to have them. trunk was also replaced with a mint southern piece. all parts were painted the correct variance. i still need to put the front mouldings on the fenders. Rest of the car is very nice.
Quarter panel mouldings are mint, pony rims have nice finish, no curb rash.

Interior is in Excellent cond, no rips,stains,or tears. back seat looks like it was never sat in. there was an aftermarket CD player in the car when i bought it.
Car has new front brake pads,rear brake shoes/hardware kit,oem ford e brake cables,ignition switch,motorsport tune up kit,new oil change,etc

Car runs great and needs nothing mechanically.
I have been using this car as a daily driver and it now has 122K miles on it. The car is in the same as I purchased it and includes all the paperwork I received with it.

Since purchasing the car I have added:
MGW T-5 Shifter w/ Blue Handle
Flaming River Quick-Ratio Steering Rack w/ Polyurethane Bushings (#FR1520)
Flaming River Steering Shaft
Maximum Motorsports Clutch Package (MMCP-51) that comes with:
MM Clutch Quadrant, MM Firewall Adjuster, MM Universal Ford OEM Clutch Cable
I have also replaced the transmission and rear-end fluid with Redline oil.

The car has been driven <10 miles since putting the new rack in and the front-end alignment (just had it done yesterday).

The only thing the car needs is to have the Traction-Lock rebuilt (new clutches). I have the Ford rebuild kit and will be including that along with fresh Redline 75W-90 in the sale.

I paid $5400 for this car back in March and have spent about $800 fixing the few mechanical issues that the cars have stock (shifter, clutch linkage issues, poor steering). I'd like to get $6000 for the car.

Yeah it took me a while to find a decent Notch. Came across a ton that were either 4-8 cylinder conversions or total rust buckets (bad part about being on the east coast).

After it's sold I'll be using the Talon as a daily driver. I should just buy some bus tickets now.... :\

Thanks for the kind words.

Also, kind of interesting statistics. This car is 1 of 821 for 92 with the PA exterior and DA interior codes.

Not sure how many of those 821 were ordered as A/C and Radio Delete with 3.08 gears but this combination was pretty rare in 92.

these cars will never drop anymore than this... sure you might find a good deal here and there, but from here on out these cars will go up in value.

Good luk
