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
