Agree with you for a Marti. Many items are wrong or not installed properly; No fogs and brackets, stripes missing in front portion of fender and mid stripes are finished flush with wheels fender flare, taillight bezel edges are black.

Note that he says "390..." NOT that it's an S-code. Could easily be a C-code CS/GT that someone stuffed an FE into. Certainly worth a call if one were in the market.

..."Early bird" reflectors as well.
Hmm... Big block, leaning and bald rear tires... 'Driven a little more than to church and the store, no doubt ;-)

That looks like one that was posted from Utah about two years ago, for about the same price. IIRC the owner said he was deployed out.

Greetings All, I am new to this site and a new CS owner, But been a mustang owner for many years.
I first saw this add on in Utah. I don't know about all the problems that may be visible, but the VIN shows to be an "S" code 390 built in the correct plant with the correct motor. I have thought about giving him a call and making a trip over to check it out. If I do I will post it back to the group.

Look at the rocker moldings, they are upside down. Easy fix, but sloppy detail work.
