1988 Ford Mustang GT Additional Info:

Summer is here! Time for flip-flops and drop tops. Here we have a fine example of an American institution: a Ford Mustang GT Convertible. It just doesn’t get any more iconic than this. This car is equipped with an updated 5.0 Liter V-8, a recent NEW 5 Speed Transmission and Clutch, 4-wheel Drilled and Slotted Disc Brakes, Upgraded Suspension with 1” Lowering Springs, Blaupunkt Touchscreen Stereo with upgraded Speakers and Amplifier and Subs, New Cooper Zeon RS3-A Tires and a Beautiful OEM Color Re-Paint. The convertible top has been replaced and the factory interior is in great shape. It comes with a California Car Cover Noah cover, but has lived the majority of it’s life indoors. You will not find a better example of a Fox Body Mustang Convertible for this price.
This car belonged to my former boss who owned it since it was 6 months old and I jumped at the opportunity to purchase it when he decided to sell it and get an SUV for retirement. It's been driven sparingly and upgraded steadily and intelligently. It’s a great car for daily driving or just weekend cruising. It runs STRONG and is tons of fun. It has no issues and returns an observed 26 MPG/Highway and 17 MPG/City. With only 116,000 miles (just a little over 3500 miles a year), this is a beautiful and powerful car that only needs a new home. It stickered new at over $22,000 and is a steal at this price considering the great condition and tasteful upgrades. These surviving, adult owned, top quality 80’s Pony Cars will do nothing but continue to appreciate in value.
Turn back the years with this time machine and feel the wind in your hair.
