Let it go! Looks like a nightmare waiting to happen

If its for ur wife may i recomend a 05-07ish with the duratec. Less maint issues, less headaches and still has go. You would have to do so much to the svt and be on top of it monthly to insure it doesnt take a crap on u at 2am on the highway

What is this about? There are tons of SVTF out there with 200k on them. This car is in good condition other tan the front bumper and hood. Pretty clean inside and some cool mods. I just found out that Ford put a tranny in it 2 years ago, which has a 3 year warranty. I just worked a deal with the guy, so the progress will be posted on here over the next few weeks.

congrats looks like its going to be a fun car. I really like the rear end, the bumper with the backing lights and the euro lights look good. Only real bummer is it doesnt have the svt seats in it imo

if you decide you don't want those euro bumpers, I'd trade you a spare set of OEM SVT bumpers I have in sonic blue.....I'd even paint them for you if you paid shipping on your end to swap (greyhound is like $40-60 to ship)

I would consider trading the front bumper and hood for an SVT front bumper and hood, if it is Silver. However, I would need $100 cash difference.

I'd do it if that front bumper wasn't a fiberglass replica instead of the real urethane one. I have sonic blue bumpers and an infra-red hood but I could get materials and spray them CD silver for around $100.

It is a fiberglass replica. The good thing is that fiberglass can be flawlessly repaired, and the urethane is much harder to repair. If it was a urethane bumper without cracks, I would just have it sprayed.

I'm well-versed in repairs of both styles.....if you have a few hours to kill feel free to read through some of my build thread in my signiture lol. I would only be doing the trade to re-sell the bumpers anyways....my car has been converted to an RS now so they wouldn't fit anyways. I just have a buddy with a sonic blue svt that likes that bumper and was thinking I could facilitate a trade
