This 1989 Ford Mustang GT is in the highest echelon of a preserved time capsule
It may have aged into full classic status years ago, but the odometer has barely passed 1k miles. In fact, this has never been registered. That’s right! You not only have a stunningly original and loaded drop-top, but also you can be the first person ever on the record for this 32-year-old classic.
We love the paint on this car. After all, a Mustang GT looks terrific in a bold color. This Scarlet Red not only radiates in the sunshine, but it also has the right hint of fade that’s a catalyst to tell others about the factory finish and the full survivor story. Of course, it’s also just a buff away from turning your garage into a Ford showroom circa 1989. The details are nicely preserved with the white convertible top looking pristine against the bold red, and even that cool brighter red sports stripe that wraps around the body is still in place! But more than just originality, you know you’ve been wanting a GT like this for a long time. This is the era of the flush-mounted headlights, and the updated full GT body kit really amped up the sporty intimidation. And so you’ll love all the survivor-grade qualities – from the slat covers in the taillights to the iconic 15-inch factory alloys.
While we really like the look of the white convertible top, it gets even better when you take it down. The red interior really makes an impact. It has a boldness that is a shade darker than the exterior to make it distinct while still coordinating. The cloth bucket seats are a welcomed sight in this soft top since they don’t get as hot or clingy as vinyl does on sunny days. Everything remains stock in this time capsule, and so you get the best features of the time. This includes power locks, cruise control, the premium AM/FM/cassette stereo, and factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Plus, with the power convertible roof and power windows, you can go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving the driver’s seat. So as low as the odometer is, we know you won’t be able to resist adding a few miles to it as you enjoy the classic top-down experience.
The numbers-matching engine has a bone stock appearance. After all, these fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8s love modifications, but it is the originality that keeps this one special. Besides, no one ever complained about the stock power of the legendary Five-Oh. When it does come time to show this car off, the motor fires up with the ease you expect in a modern FI machine. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive make it an easy cruiser. But if you are going to do some hot laps in this one, you should invest in a full wheel and tire package to swap out for driving. This is such a time capsule that it’s still on its factory tires!
