This 1989 Ford Mustang GT is in the highest echelon of a preserved
time capsule. It may have aged into full classic status years ago,
but the odometer has barely passed 1k miles. In fact, this has
never been registered. That's right! You not only have a stunningly
original and loaded drop-top, but also you can be the first person
ever on the record for this 32-year-old classic.
We love the paint on this car. After all, a Mustang GT looks
terrific in a bold color. This Scarlet Red not only radiates in the
sunshine, but it also has the right hint of fade that's a catalyst
to tell others about the factory finish and the full survivor
story. Of course, it's also just a buff away from turning your
garage into a Ford showroom circa 1989. The details are nicely
preserved with the white convertible top looking pristine against
the bold red, and even that cool brighter red sports stripe that
wraps around the body is still in place! But more than just
originality, you know you've been wanting a GT like this for a long
time. This is the era of the flush-mounted headlights, and the
updated full GT body kit really amped up the sporty intimidation.
And so you'll love all the survivor-grade qualities - from the slat
covers in the taillights to the iconic 15-inch factory alloys.
While we really like the look of the white convertible top, it gets
even better when you take it down. The red interior really makes an
impact. It has a boldness that is a shade darker than the exterior
to make it distinct while still coordinating. The cloth bucket
seats are a welcomed sight in this soft top since they don't get as
hot or clingy as vinyl does on sunny days. Everything remains stock
in this time capsule, and so you get the best features of the time.
This includes power locks, cruise control, the premium
AM/FM/cassette stereo, and factory air conditioning (it will need
servicing to blow cold again.) Plus, with the power convertible
roof and power windows, you can go from enclosed comfort to a
wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving the driver's seat. So
as low as the odometer is, we know you won't be able to resist
adding a few miles to it as you enjoy the classic top-down
The numbers-matching engine has a bone stock appearance. After all,
these fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8s love modifications, but it is the
originality that keeps this one special. Besides, no one ever
complained about the stock power of the legendary Five-Oh. When it
does come time to show this car off, the motor fires up with the
ease you expect in a modern FI machine. Power steering, power
brakes, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission
w/overdrive make it an easy cruiser. But if you are going to do
some hot laps in this one, you should invest in a full wheel and
tire package to swap out for driving. This is such a time capsule
that it's still on its factory tires!
You know a car like this is likely a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity. So if you're a true sports car collector, you know
this needs to be in your garage. Call today!!!
