The Shelby GT350 wasn't the only high-performance Mustang available if you wanted a fast pony.

Classic Car Overview

This Fox-stang was the best of the times for generation 3 Mustangs. This particular model has a powerful 5.0 Liter V8 with fuel injection and produces 225hp, the highest of generation 3. This consignment is in good overall condition, is bathed in arrest me red and as the consignor states and Ive experienced it, a fun car to drive. Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by the manufacturer, please check your local, state, and federal laws to determine if this vehicle is applicable for use on public highways in your area. Exterior With the new respray of Bright Red over the original Medium Scarlet, we can clearly see the aero work done showing up from the intro. Slightly fogged headlights integrated into the front, a body matching neoprene front bumper/spoiler setup, and a scooped hood add to the menacing look of this GT Stag. On the sides some body matching 3D moldings and the hockey stick cove is lowered on the doors to become an inlet vent, (if you will) to help cool the rear brakes. Black window surrounds contrast with the white canvas convertible top which is in good but soiled condition. On the back a 93 Cobra style rear spoiler adorns the trunk lid, and nifty slotted horizontal bar tail lighting with a large neoprene body matching bumper below is seen. When the top is down a style bar is revealed which adds to the look and safety factor and structural integrity of this galloping pony. 18-inch OE Wheel Distributors polished 5 spokes are on all 4 corners, and these have a series of bolts on the rims to add drama. Slightly low profile tires in the form of 245/45R18s are on all 4 corners and aft from the 38th week of 2014. Interior Normally this is where Id write a pop of the doors, or swinging open the doors we see....BUT this car I can say lowering the convertible top, reveals gray tweed cloth inserts, with light gray vinyl bolsters on the sides of the front buckets. The rear bench is a full tweed broadcloth and is in excellent condition. The drivers bucket has some wear through on the outer bolster, shows some slight smudging, and has a few wrinkles in the surrounding outer vinyl on the hinge area. A center console races forward between the buckets and shows also in tones of gray. A small glovebox/armrest is on here as well as the mirror toggles and ash receptacle and lighter, with the ash receptacle slightly rusted. The T style shifter directly influenced from the original 64-1/2 version is seen as the console turns into the dash as it rises upward. Here an aftermarket JVC AM/FM/CD digital radio replaces the original, and just above are the climate knobs. The dash is pristine, with all original square and rectangle instrumentation. Power options abound like power locks, power windows, power mirrors and power lumbar for the seats in front. These seats reside within a sea of nicely preserved gray carpeting. Door panels retain their original charm and are clean with no rust on the lower doors. Dont bump your head on entry into the back seat and watch out for that roll bar!. Drivetrain 1987 brought us the 5.0 liter block, heads, intake and header exhaust manifolds. Speed density EFI is on and while not the more tuner friendly, and yielding the most horsepower of the generation at 225. The condition of the bay is unrestored, showing patina, slight corrosion and could be properly referred to as driver original. An AOD 4-speed automatic trans is on the back and it pushes power to a Ford 8.8 inch 2.73 Trac-Lok rear axle. Undercarriage Nicely preserved but used for fun, would be the buzzword here with no surface rust excepting the usual bare steel exposed to the elements, but the floor pans, frame and rockers are rust free. Independent front coil spring suspension, and a 4 link on the rear, we can also see power disc brakes up front, and power drum brakes on the rear. Factory headers with Flowmaster dual exhaust has been installed, and is showing in H pipe format but without catalytic converters. Drive-Ability Top down and here I went off into the sunset toppling through town in lieu of the test track. Waving like a celebrity, and living every minute of my self brought on fame accentuated by this classic. Good smooth acceleration, nice smooth braking and good handling, with a small turn radius. Our consignor has a rather rigorous starting procedure which involves jumping the stater solenoid. My partner in crime and crack Foxbody decoder quickly realized this was not necessary as the S-terminal was not hooked up. Once connected the car fired with the key. The top struggled to raise back up so it will need some work on that end. The gas gauge was inoperable, but all else was functioning at the time of my town tooling! All in all a nice example, with a color change respray, a good white canvas top, and interior which is nice, and its a convertible!! Feel the power of the EFI 5.0 liter which has been well maintained, as has the rest of this Fox Bodied Gen 3 Mustang.
