Benjamin Lineberger - 1986 Ford Mustang
This is my 1986 Mustang convertible. It is my daily driver and I drive it everywhere, it has a 3.8 v6 with a c5 transmission and I know of very few of these cars that have been rebuilt. I got the car when I was 14 and it was gray with a blue lx interior. Over the past 5 years I have done a color change over to redfire metallic off of the 1999-2004 mustangs along with some custom hand done pinstriping on the hood, down the side and along the back spoiler and trunk lid and along the saleen spoiler. It has a completely brand new 85-96 GT light on dark gray interior, with new carpet, dash, door panels and white gauges and blue dash lights. I am in the middle of putting on 87-93 GT brakes on the car and Koni shocks and struts with ford lowering c springs. I am running SVE SC Saleen 17x8/10 rims with 245/45/17 in the front and 275/40/17 in the back. The engine to my knowledge has never been out of the car and it has 160K miles on it. The transmission has been rebuilt. The horsepower is rated at 120 hp but I have never had the car on a dyno to know what it actually makes and have never had to mess with the engine because it has ran smooth since I got the car.
