"When a listing leads with the word ""survivor"", it often includes a few caveats. Usually, the survivor in question is a 1960s or 1970s classic from the so-called Golden Age of Muscle Cars. Often, survivor means varying degrees of originality, where said car has been repainted, modified or selectively repaired. But sometimes, the term is perfectly delineated to represent a car like this crisp Mustang GT. All-original, from its rare Blue top to its vintage Goodyear radials, this fine Fox Body is an up-and-coming classic that's perfectly priced for an enthusiast who's looking to break big in the collector car world. Searching for some choice analog metal to preserve and enjoy? Check out this awesome Ford!
APPEARANCE & CONDITION
Throughout the 1980s Ford worked with a new 'Aero' look that brought sharp angles, clean profiles and an array of smoother surfaces to the company's entire passenger car lineup. For the Mustang, that meant a classic 2+2 shape which rode on a whittled stance. And, although Dearborn's corporate influence was becoming more obvious, a mix of chiseled lines and aggressive bolt-ons allowed the car to keep its unique identity. This low-mileage GT still wears a nicely maintained coat of Regatta Blue single-stage that was sprayed by the good folks at Dearborn Assembly. And when the weather acts up, a Blue convertible top, 1 of only 1,795 installed for the 1989 model year, comes swiftly to the rescue.
In keeping with vaunted Mustang tradition, 1989's most popular engine choice was the venerable 5.0 liter Windsor V8. While this mill made its first appearance in the budget-minded Fairlane, it eventually became a trusted ally on the highway, drag strip and road course. Like the rest of this Ford, the 8,707-mile powerplant is immaculately preserved, starting easily, idling smoothly and exhibiting strong acceleration. Under the car, a tough T5 5-speed sends power to a familiar 8.8-inch axle. That Ford pumpkin pushes a factory suspension that's remained completely unaltered since rolling out of the showroom. Factory power steering proves handy in the twisties. Standard power front disc and rear drum brakes provide competent stops. There's a true-dual exhaust system, which stacks small catalytic converters in front of Ford-branded mufflers. And everything rolls on attractive turbine alloys, which twist vintage 225/60VR15 Goodyear Eagle VR60s.
COMFORT & CONVENIENCE
Between the doors, a handsome Opal Gray interior offers a great balance between daily and high performance needs. Original bucket seats are firm and supportive, showing minimal overall wear. Between those seats, a slim console centers an original tape deck between factory air conditioning and a leather-wrapped shifter. The car's stylish, 2-tone dash is in great shape and free of cracks and scratches. In front of the driver, a black, Ford-branded steering wheel laps a tilting column and clear Ford telemetry. And everything, from the car's factory power windows to its Ford cruise control, is present, accounted for and ready to hit the road.
