Rare 1988 Ford Mustang ASC McLaren Convertible Limited Edition. This is Production #1146, one of only 5 in Aztec Blue with a Blue Convertible top, and one of 5 with a Standard transmission! Described in 1988 as “A Bolt from the Blue,” this car features refined European styling merged with classic American Sports Car design. This two-seater convertible boasts new paint from approximately 7 years ago, still looking fresh.

Originally, the car began as a fully loaded Mustang LX notchback with a 5.0 Liter High Output (HO), 225 HP motor. Ford then shipped these cars to the American Sunroof Company (ASC), where the top was removed from the windshield header to the rear deck. The windshield was raked back a few degrees and the glass recurved to fit the new configuration. McLaren added bracing underneath from the A to B pillars and from the B to B pillars, boxing the entire floor pan for added strength. Struts were installed from the rear wheel housings into the trunk, eliminating body flex under most road conditions. According to ASC, it was the strongest convertible they had assembled at that time.

The engine features a cold air intake and long tube headers, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission with a new clutch and high-output throttle bearings. Power disc brakes are in the front and drums in the rear. The car includes a custom console and interior trim, custom aftermarket spoiler with brake light, and custom aftermarket headlights.

Special Edition Leather sport seats and an added aftermarket Matte black painted hood scoop contribute to its unique appearance. All the proper ASC McLaren badging, dual exhaust, and a clean undercarriage are present. It rides on factory 4-stud custom ASC McLaren wheels and includes an AM/FM/Cassette and CD player. The hideaway manual convertible top functions properly and is in great condition.

This McLaren Mustang runs well and is overall a solid car. While the interior shows some signs of wear and could benefit from refreshing, and a few car door light lenses are needed to complete the package.
