Default WTB **** load of parts

I have a tub locally for 500$. Thing is, it's really just a shell so I need to get parts for it and I want to see if it's still a good deal as there is not often opportunity for shells.

So I need

A complete drivetrain. Complete engine (whatever the size) with transmission, differential (open is ok) and axles. running condition.

Complete set of control arms with spindles

Complete set of brakes whatever the size.

Complete set of old shocks assembly

Shipped to NY 12919

Make me a deal that I can't refuse.

$500 is 25% of a running car. Building a car from parts especially shipping everything doesn't make sense.

BTW, I couldn't give away a pristine rust and dent free shell, so $500 is too much.

Around here, the less expensive I'm able to find is 3K and for that I get a 90 with salt and rust.

For 500$ it's the shell with a hardtop and a specmiata cage for 600$ more. I think that's not that bad. But I know that in the US that sounds like a bad one.

Why not just get a mustang and start swapping from that?

I had them for a year trying to give them away. Finally ran them over with the dozer, loaded them onto a trailer and took them in for scrap.

This. If you are starting with a shell, this is the way to do it.

My buddy has a running, rust free, red '90 for $1500 down here in Florida. It may be slightly more now as he was going to spend a couple of bucks on fixing the A/C. You're welcome.
