newbie has a question....

I just recently sold my 94 Mustang GT,,,,,, been wanting a ZX3 for some time.
I found a 2001 ZX3 that has a clean body,,, 150,000 miles , clean interior ....
Havent seen the car in person ,,,,, but i think i can pick it up for 2100.00 to 2300.00,,,
should i consider this car,,,,, what are some things to look out for,,,, or should i run like hell?
Any input would be much appreciated
thanks

How much work do you want to do vs a lower mileage one? Make sure its a zetec & not a spi motor.

Good cars with the zetec.Timing belt should have been or will need changed so you could use that in as a positive if its done or discount if it needs changed.

I don't think the spi was on the zx3 just the sedan

he's right, the only models with the SPI were the LX (guarenteed) and SE (some) sedans. never was one put in a zx3/5, unless well someone was an idiot.

Or if he lived in Canada(which he does not). I heard Canadian zx3's could come with the spi.
