Grand Rapids, MI Sand Beige · 360 V8
The third-generation Mustang was produced by Ford from 1979 to 1993. Built on Fords Fox platform (and is thus commonly referred to as the Fox or Foxbody Mustang), it evolved through a number of sub-models, trim levels, and drivetrain combinations during its production life. It underwent updates for 1987, and for a time seemed destined for replacement with a front wheel drive Mazda platform. However, company executives were swayed by consumer opinions and the rear wheel drive Mustang stayed, while the front wheel drive version became the Ford Probe. Enthusiasts group the generation into two segments: the 1979-1986 cars, with their quad headlight arrangement (manufactured in the United States), and the 1987-1993 cars, with their aero composite headlamped front fascia styling. Production ended with the introduction of the fourth-generation Mustang (SN-95) for the 1994 model year.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1988 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 for consideration. This Pony has been owned and built by the same owner of the last 27 years. The mod list on this vehicle is absolutely incredible; engine is a dart 8.7 deck Ford 302 that has been bored out to 360ci with custom Diamond pistons, Yates ported heads with Jessel Mohawk valvetrain, Yates intake modified to 8.7 block, custom stepped stainless steel headers, Johnson baffled oil pan, Solid Roller competition camshaft, XXXX pistons, Procharger F3-A supercharger with two Procharger blow off valves (another freshly rebuilt F3-A is available with the car), air to water intercooler with ice chamber, Magna-fuel 600 fuel pump with Waterman Mini Bertha fuel pump in front, Big Stuff EFI, Wilson 105mm throttle body, twin aluminum radiator with electric SPAL fans on both, Mezier water pump, Moroso belt driven vacuum pump with aluminum chamber with dual baffles, 16v Powermaster alternator, engine diaper installed, Rossler Powerglide transmission, all components show to be in like new condition with very little use. The Frame has been setup for drag racing, no evidence of any rust damage, underbody has been re-sprayed, front and rear sub frame connectors have been custom welded into the floor pans, rear torque boxes have been reinforced, Projack stands, polished flaming river steering rack with Heim linkages, chrome k-member cross-member with adjustable lower a-arms and strange coil-overs/spindles, Strange braking components throughout including master cylinder, front and rear calipers and rotors, line lock equipped, flexible stainless lines front and rear, rear axle is a reinforced Ford 9 with Strange 40 spline axles and differential housing, Mark Williams metal matrix drive shaft, adjustable 4 link rear suspension with Wolfe rear sway bar and coil-overs, custom carbon fiber covers over the fuel cell, fender wells have been mildly tubbed, trans-cooler mounted ahead of rear axle, new M/T ET Drag slicks in the rear (29.5/10.5/15) and M/T ET fronts (28/4.5/15) with Weld wheels - all of these upgrades have set this Pony at over 1200 wheel horsepower. The owner did not spare a penny with this build and all of the service records provided will verify that, done right from top to bottom and a true beast that will not disappoint.
