This Mustang ran and drove well with some other issues of note. On the exterior I noted the trunk lid is misaligned. There is some general misalignment to the body panels. There are minor misc scratches around the vehicle. Normal and most too small to see in photos. The paint shows some wear and tear that is consistent with age and mileage. The rear roof has a knick which will need to be addressed. There's also a knick on the front right door. There was some rust inside the vehicle at the bottom of the steering column. The paint meter readings show signs of panel repainting. The underside and engine compartment show areas of minor surface rust. See pictures. I checked the vehicle with a magnet and found it to stick all around but was weaker in the the quarter panels. Not excessive.

The steering wheel shows some wear and tear as seen in pics. The sun visors shows wear. There is light wear to the seats. I noted no smoke or odd odors inside. The blower and heater worked as designed.

Under the hood I noted full fluids. The engine bay looked clean for its age.

I found no issues on the test drive. The engine had plenty of power and there were no misfires or excessive smoking. The transmission shifted as designed with no harsh engagement or slipping. The steering was responsive and the suspension was firm and the vehicle handled well. There were no abnormal vibrations or odd noises. The brakes were firm with no pulsation felt. There were no leaks found to the underside of the vehicle.

See below and pictures for more info.
