    I haven't measured the actual clearance but I recently lowered it an inch and even when it was stock height, I couldn't fit my jack under it. The front jack point is far enough back that I'd need to buy a $$$ jack that was low and long enough to get under so I went the ramp route.

    some do. Finding a 30+ year old car without rust is impressive alone. But its not worth 10k imo. But Im not buying it. Maybe its worth that to someone else. :shrug2:

    Rust free is one thing but unless you're replacing a pile of stuff, it's gonna ride pretty bad. Neighbor has a mint '92 and another friend has a '93 and even for low km examples, they are rough riding cars. If it wasn't for the sofa's for seats, you'd break your spine in them lol

    well you don't buy an older mustang like that for the ride :lol: They never rode plush, and most firm them up more. I replaced the whole suspension on that car. Looks like new owner added more too.
