For Sale: 1988 Ford Mustang in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Powerful, affordable, and an unbeatable color combination - this 1988 Ford Mustang LX is an upgraded drop-top with a fuel-injected 5.0 V8 and a five-speed at its heart. It makes for the kind of classic convertible that's ideal for cruising.

The maroon paint is the right color for a car like this. It's a 5.0 pony car with plenty of upgraded pep in its step, which earns an aggressive red. But because this is an LX instead of a GT, it also likes to have a touch of premium. So the darker maroon gives sophistication to the boldness. It's a driver-quality finish, and that means you have a classic you'll drive on a whim. And when you see all the features, you can really tell this one wants to be enjoyed on the road. Plus, an affordable car like this allows you to invest in a respray down the road, especially when you see the good panels and good gaps that show this has the right fundamentals. It also has the right details, like the bright factory alloys, a luggage rack, and a full white pinstripe that coordinates with the nice-looking white convertible top.

The interior really makes an impact because it's distinct and clean. It's a distinctly intertwined two-tone where even details like the red seatbelts and white convertible boot create a well-coordinated presentation. There are plenty of great features, including power windows, cruise control, cup holders, power mirrors, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. There are also provisions for other nice features like power locks and air conditioning, but they will need serving and/or parts to fully function again. And this is a driver's convertible with nice features like a sports steering wheel on a tilt column, full gauges with tach, and an upgraded shifter.

Ford's fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8 is a true legend today for being powerful from the factory and also loving upgrades to unleash even more power. So this one has been upgraded with a Trick Flow manifold, a Trick Flow throttle body, 30lb injectors, a Maximum Motorsports tower brace, and shorty headers. The stainless steel X-pipe dual exhaust has hi-flow cats for added power and a terrific rumble. And the five-speed manual transmission puts complete control in your hands of the V8's power and soundtrack. Plus, you'll love driving this convertible all day with its power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sway bars front & rear.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and warranty card. This is a great drop-top for taking an attractive driver-ready pony and releasing even more power. Call now!
