For Sale: 1988 Ford Mustang in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1988 Ford Mustang GT is coining off of two decades under the same owner. What long-term care means in this case was all about creating a more powerful pony car with a wicked look and an irresistible driving attitude. So when you see the investments in the interior, suspension, and fuel-injected stroker motor, you'll realize this is the best deal going in V8 muscle.

This car has a cool level of coordination. White is a timeless color, and the black lower section draws added attention to the factory GT body kit. Plus, with the wheels done in black and deeply tinted windows, the full appeal here is as clear as black and white... literally. The nice gloss and clean lines really show off a well-done coupe. And there are cool details like the monotone front end. It's not trying to be a World of Wheels contender, but there's a feeling of proper respect. You see it in areas like the front bumper where the leading edge would have seen more wear had it not been for mindful long-term care.

The interior has been upgraded to be a proper driver's machine. You still get some of the nice features that remind you that this started life as a loaded Mustang GT, like power windows, a center console, cruise control, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. But the real focus and investment here were about enhancing the driving experience. You have Corbeau racing seats, upgraded harnesses, a sports shifter, and a large AutoMeter Sport-Comp II tach mounted high on the dash. Things that were unnecessary weight or zapped power were eliminated, like the rear seat and A/C. But the added Dynamat insulation and newer carpeting are the kind of things that tell you this performer also likes being a solid cruiser.

This is a powerful pony, and the engine bay likes to showcase it. The base is a professionally built 342 cubic-inch stroker V8 done about 10 years ago. It includes Edelbrock Victor Jr aluminum heads and shorty heads. And the Holley Systemax intake on top is a nice way to announce that you take your fuel-injected power seriously. Best of all, you are in complete control of it all with the five-speed manual transmission. It's unknown if the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, but the level of investment, right down to the suspension, certainly makes this feel like a lower mileage car. As you look underneath, you'll see upgrades like the D&D Motorsports K-member, tubular front A-arms, subframe connectors, and boxed rear arms. Plus, with power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sticky Toyo Proxes tires, this upgraded pony car is an all-around good driver.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and the dyno sheet. This is the GT with some serious power for the streets. That's the kind of deal you know will be going fast, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
