And this is really the only bad rusted out spots on the car and they are right next to the gas tank:
She needs some restoring but that is what i wanted anyways. I have a gas tank coming for $100 and possible a 2000 mustang seat for $75. I have to go monday and get my tank and see if the seat will fit. Will keep you guys posted.

The dent on the driver side is from falling ice that hit the car. My father has a dent puller so we are going to see if we can pull out the dents. Also the spoiler is broke but i can get one from a junk yard.
OH yeah forgot the car only has 145k and the motor and transmission are out of a thunderbird. I have no idea when the previous owner did the motor/tranny swap. I guess this year mustang had issues with motors and trans. I am going to try to fix the v6 but if i can't get it running smoothly i am swapping it with either a 4.6l v8 or 5.0l v8.
Throw a 5.0 in it with a really quiet exhaust, have one turndown and the other go to the stock spot so it still looks like its a v6. Then leave all the body panels how they are and everything else including wheels and you'll have a nice sleeper.
Honestly dude. I'd part it out and find something else. The amount of rust that thing has is horrible. Judging by everything else I have see it doesn't look worth putting money into it. If it was a classic it would be one thing and despite how much I love the 94-98 you could find something better to start with.
Well the problem with mustang's and nystate is they are extremely hard to find without some type of rust on them. Remember here in nystate we have salt on our roads. Plus find me another mustang for this price i paid in better condition and i will buy it.
