Fox-body Mustangs still represent a huge bang for the buck, and
while you may glance at the price tag on this 1989 Ford Mustang GT
and say, "Hey, that's not cheap!" take a step back and realize that
this car already has every single upgrade you've ever wanted, all
wrapped in a show-quality package that's ready to rock. You're not
going to get anything this fast or this pretty for less cash
The wild two-tone blue and white paint is beautifully applied and it has the show wins to back it up. This isn't some relic of the '90s, but a fresh build that looks up-to-date today and still attracts a lot of attention wherever it's shown. The body kit is a Cervini's Stalker setup, with a multi-level Cobra-style hood and ground effects that look a bit like the original GT pieces but a little more aggressive. The finish is expertly done and the airbrush work between the colors is stunning, and with House of Kolor finishes, it's simply gorgeous. The bodywork underneath is excellent, too, and while the Fox Mustangs were often abused, nobody could say they weren't tough, so the doors line up well, the hatch fits like it should, and for a custom hood, it sure fits well. You'll note the headlights and taillights are cool crystal clear units that update the Mustang's look and the usual 5.0 badges have been replaced by '351' emblems that better tell the story of what's going on under the hood.
You'd be forgiven for not recognizing the Mustang's interior, which has been extensively upgraded to cope with the horsepower now on tap. A 6-point cage was painted to match the body and really stiffens up the whole car, and the back seat was removed for obvious reasons. Sparco racing seats and 5-point harnesses were fitted, and after you see what this car can do, you'll realize this was a smart upgrade. The original dash is intact, with the original gauges replaced by handsome white-faced dials that look a lot more modern, as well as that trick billet wheel. There's also a custom pistol-grip shifter for the 5-speed gearbox and drilled pedals on the floor. There is no radio, but you'll never miss it in this car, and it's just beautifully finished everywhere you look, from the custom gauge mounts in the center stack to the embroidered floor mats. Even the trunk is fully upholstered and carries a rear-mounted battery.
The 351 cubic inch V8 is vintage 1970 and has been fitted with Ross pistons, Eagle rods, and a Crane custom blower roller cam, all to work better with the Paxton Novi 2000 supercharger up top. It's completely balanced and blueprinted, and with a massive fuel system that includes an Edelbrock intake, Trick Flow fuel rails, and Ford Racing injectors, it's as docile and easy to drive as a stocker. Dyno sheets with the car show 565 horsepower and 523 pounds of torque at the rear wheels, so it's definitely got the goods. It's also neatly dressed with lots of polished aluminum, including the inner fenders, and more of that glowing electric blue paint. The power goes aft through a modified Mustang Racing Pro 900 5-speed manual transmission, an aluminum drive shaft, and a built rear end with 3.55 gears, a Ford Racing limited slip and Moser axles. The exhaust includes long-tube headers and catalytic converters, meaning that this car is 50-state legal in its current tune. Wow! Brakes are giant Baer discs all around, ths suspension is by Maximum Motorsports, and it sits on gorgeous Steeda wheels that recall those fitted to the Cobra R and 245/45/17 Mickey Thompson radials.
