Ever contemplated running the X-275 class? Well, look no further than a Craigslist posting out of Rockland County, New York. A friend listed his buddy’s 1989 LX Notch Mustang for $30,000 with all kinds of drag race ready goodies.
As it sits the car is powered by a 427 CID Small Block Ford Engine (a stroked 351 Windsor based combination) enhanced with a X-275 ball bearing turbo. Based on the information provided by the seller this machine was tuned by Frank from PSI PROformance and makes over 1,400 horsepower.
Of course, there are lots of additional components that go along with a car of this caliber and according, there was lots of money spent to get this beast to its current state. To go racing at this level costs thousands and thousands of dollars, so a complete car at this price is a bargain.
Based on the amount of work and money that went into this LX, both the seller and friend who is advertising the car are looking for serious buyers. Unfortunately, that tax refund money won’t be enough to cover the cost for this machine, unless you fall into that 1% category.
Perhaps you have an inheritance, a rich uncle, or received a settlement from that slip and fall accident at the discount store, then this machine could be your next race car. With a two-speed Powerglide, 160 lb fuel injectors, and 12-point chrome moly cage, this looks like a fun ride. Why spend $100,000 to build it when you can buy it complete for $30,000?
