Propelled by a period-correct engine that's almost certainly been in place from the start and featuring its original colors both inside and out, this 1989 Ford Mustang GT strikes an outstanding balance, in that it's been carefully enhanced with some well-chosen upgrades without going so far as to detract from its reliability. A fresh appearance combines with an impressively strong running condition to make it perfectly suited to everything from weekend cruising to full on daily driving duties.
All the signs that this classic Ford muscle car has received safe shelter are evident. The white paint draped over its exterior mirrors the color it wore as it rolled off the showroom for the first time and is in clean condition, with its shine and smooth texture intact. GT body skirts and a prominent wing perched on the decklid are among the visual cues that set this Pony apart from its more commonly seen stablemates. It's a clean, trim looking ride, with plenty of style but no excess - those subtle factory ground effects blend in well with the rest of the design and this third generation's Fox bodied form provides it with a properly badged scooped hood very much in keeping with its muscle car heritage. Take a peek in back - the dual exhaust tips emerging from their recesses in the rear valance are a great added touch.
The state of the highly original gray interior waiting just beyond the doors is another indication of just how well this Mustang has been cared for. It's still in great shape after three decades, showing only the slightest amount of wear and no obvious effects of UV exposure. The high-backed bucket seats blend vinyl and cloth and are firm and supportive as they bracket a clean center console. The dash area, like everything else inside the doors, offers an unspoiled appearance, with all of its gauges functioning as intended and the original stereo still positioned at its center to provide an element of nostalgia to your audio experience. Comfort and convenience features include a tilt column, cruise control, power windows and door locks, and air conditioning that's blowing cold and strong. Raise the hatch in back and you'll encounter no surprises - the storage area is just as clean and neat as you'd expect based on the rest of the car.
This classic Ford provides a fun experience behind the wheel. Its 5.0 liter V8 is very likely the original engine and it's been enhanced with a variety of upgrades, including a 65mm throttle body, a 8303 Fomoco cam and a performance chip that extracts maximum performance from its electronic fuel injection. All of these modifications are properly dialed in and in top form - the car really runs and sounds strong, thanks also to the Flowmaster dual exhaust onboard in back. The accompanying 4 speed automatic transmission has been fortified with an aftermarket shift kit and offers an overdrive gear to bring revs down at highway speeds, and the added subframe connectors and front chassis brace enhance structural rigidity for both better performance and a smoother ride. Power brakes at all four corners bring dependable, low-effort stops, while power steering makes this Pony easy to navigate on its set of 16" GT wheels whose chrome surfaces are in great condition. The clean undercarriage below is yet another indication of this classic's rock-solid state - it really looks good.
Nicely maintained and carefully sheltered, this 1989 Ford Mustang GT provides an outstanding driving experience and represents its Fox-bodied era in fine style. Call today!
