When the car was purchased, the outside door handle on the driver's side was broken off, $15 from Salvage yard.
The Passenger side rear-view mirror was missing, $15 from salvage yard.
The car has a sunroof, but the hinges are broken, so you can't open it while driving. I'm assuming this is an aftermarket accessory, so it doesn't really matter much.
I suspect there's a slight leak in the heater core, as I can smell coolant when I first start the heater. I will have to look into that.
Minor rust on fenders near wheel-wells, but that is to be expected from just about any 14 year old car.
I purchased this car from a salvage yard to be a fixer-upper for $300, but I found the only things wrong with it were minor cosmetic items.
All in all, it's only cost me about $30 in repairs, and I find that it gets better fuel mileage than I could have hoped for, in the range of 23MPG city, 27MPG Highway.
For a $300 car that has over 200,000 miles on it, it's a very reliable car, and very enjoyable to drive. The car grips the road around turns, and stays stable at the higher Interstate speeds.
Despite the rust, the majority of the paint is still in good condition. A few minor dings here and there, but that's to be expected.
I am very pleased with my purchase. I was never much of a Ford person before, mainly because I've had a few lemons, but this little Mustang has turned out to be a very good investment.
