One-Owner 1987 Ford Mustang GT Is A Clean Fox

We aren’t the sort of people who could buy a cool car and then leave it sitting unused in the garage. The thought of purchasing a cool Mustang and then just keeping it in hopes of turning profit years down the road isn’t for us. We are glad there are some people out there who do buy cars and don’t drive them to sell in the future. Without them, we wouldn’t have a pristine car like this 1987 Ford Mustang GT Fox-body.

The car is immaculate, having traveled only 1,194 miles its entire life. Decades of not being driven could mean that the vehicle requires some mechanical restoration to make it a driver, but the seller says it runs perfectly. The car isn’t anything particularly special, its a basic 1987 Ford Mustang GT with a 5.0-liter HO V8 and 5-speed manual transmission. It’s one of the more common colors called Cabaret Red.

It has the high-back GT bucket seats in beige plaid. The seller brags that the car has never had any ethanol gas run through it and that he has driven the car every year. The Mustang GT has never seen rain and has always been stored in a heated garage under a car cover. It appears to have the sticker on the window still, but alas, we can’t make out anything on the sticker.

The original paperwork comes with the car, including manuals and the paperwork from the original sale. Fox-body prices have been on the rise, but we aren’t sure prices are where the seller wants them to be just yet. The seller is asking $35,900 for the Mustang. Is a run of the mill, but low mile 1987 Mustang GT worth $36,000? The Fox-body that everyone wants is the Cobra like this 1993 with 7,800 miles.

    It’s interesting as a piece of history, but I don’t really know why anyone would want it.

    People who would buy it for that money would not drive it. They would let it sit for another decade and try to resell it.
    Just sell it to someone who will drive it!

      I’m aware you could buy it as an investment, but I think it’s already insanely overpriced and wouldn’t be a good one.
      It’s possible there is some guy in his 40s (like myself) that remembers these cars fondly and would like to just have this mint condition old Mustang sit in his garage.
      His wife can always sell it for a huge loss after he dies.

    If that interior was a person it would be Sloth from the Goonies.
