Car description

This is a 1979 mustang indy pace car. The car is solid with no real rust issues to speak of. The car has had some disassembly started on before I bought it. I bought it in February 2016 and hauled it home from Florida. The car started and drove up on to the U haul trailer fine. It didn't seem to have a lot of power but that wasn't what I needed it for. The guy I bought it off of claimed that he bought it off of the original owners family and that the car actually has less then 18,000 miles. However, I have no way to prove it and it just seems hard to believe to me. The car was bought for $4000.00 when I bought it. I have a spare engine that I had from a previous pace car that I owned that goes with it. The spare motor was built at a local race shop and has not been run since picking up almost 18 years ago. I had invested $3000.00 into the engine rebuild alone. The block was shaved .010 and the head was shaved .020. Because of this it had special Ross racing pistons made for it. The block or head was O-ringed but I cant remember what one. It was a long time ago. I have a spare turbo and exhaust manifold off of a Thunderbird turbo cope to go with it and a modified intake as well. The motor was built to put out around 400hp. I know that doesn't seem like much but back when I had it built it was. I would recommend having the motor tore down just to make sure sitting for 18 years has had no effects. The motor has been stored inside since completion. Now some of the bads, The photos speak for themselves. This car needs someone to do some lovin on it. The original set of keys got lost and I don't have any spares, I never transferred over the title from the last guy. I do have the title but it is still in the name of the people who sold it to the last guy. As you can see I have over $7000.00 into a car that I am willing to let go for $500.00 just to get it out of my hair. I do not have the time I thought I would to restore it and would rather spend my time washing and waxing something already in great shape. The item is located in Berwick, PA 18603.

I also wanted to mention that the car was originally equipped with factory ac. A previous owner had removed the compressor and associated under the hood equipment for it. I do not currently have any of that equipment.
