Just curious, when you sold your modded Mustang, did you get the same price as a stock Mustang, less or more? I want to know if you would do this again and mod another car to the same degree? A lot of folks on the forum mod cars but I'll just keep mine stock. Good luck finding your new baby!
On my 1,024whp 2015 Mustang, I performed the mod in early 2015 (sourced the car in the first batch of deliveries in 2014). I drove it for 38,000mi and sold it in 2018. 3.5 years or so. Original MSRP on the car was $43k (GT Premium, Performance Pack, all options, 50th anniv. edition). I sold the car with the mods in place. I sold it for $49k. I most assuredly made no money on the car as the price on the mods was well over $20,000. However, the engine mods were due to be replaced/refreshed and the buyer knew this. Said buyer was the owner of a large Nissan Dealership in Panama City.
His service department manager wrecked the car at the drag strip a couple of weeks later. They were trying to show it off for a buyer. Car ran a 9.38 and he hit the wall after the finish line because he hit the brakes way too early and FOD or something caused him to get loose and sideswipe the wall. They repaired it and in 6 months, the car was sold to a local buyer.
That buyer owned the car for 2 weeks and killed himself with the car in a high speed DUI between Panama City and Dothan. According to the newspaper, it was estimated that he was traveling in excess of 160mph on a 2-lane highway, lost control and struck a tree. I went back and gave that Nissan dealer a piece of my mind as per the deal I had with them, the car needed to be sold only to someone with racing experience or a racing license. It was a race car, street legal, but it was a race car and didn't belong in the hands of someone who had no experience with high powered cars. The person that killed himself traded in a 2008 Honda Civic on the car. He was 24 years old.
I know this is way too much info, but had I known how this car would end up, I'd have not sold it to that first buyer for any amount of money.
