The Fox Body Ford Mustang was a popular vehicle when it was sold new, and that popularity continues today as folks that used to own one – or wish that they had – are keen to scoop one up via various collector car auctions. In recent months, we’ve seen loads of interesting Mustangs from this era surface for sale, including an 8k-mile 1985 GT convertible, a 17k-mile 1988 GT, and Ken Block’s modified 1990 GT convertible, to name just a few. Now, this 1987 Ford Mustang GT has surfaced for sale at Cars & Bids, and this example has a mere 19k miles on the clock, too.
This 1987 Ford Mustang GT remains in original, unmodified condition, which is quite rare for a Fox Body these days, though it did reportedly suffer some damage back in 2017. That was repaired, but there are still a few typical flaws like scratches and paint chips here and there, marring its Oxford White finish. Otherwise, there isn’t much not to like here, as this particular Fox remains in very nice condition, cosmetically speaking.
The same goes for the Scarlet Red interior, which is in pretty nice shape itself and is also equipped with amenities such as cloth-covered front sport seats, air conditioning, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo, though no extra frills like power windows – only old fashioned crank-operated units here, though that’s one less thing to worry about spending money repairing, at least.
The other appealing thing about this 1987 Ford Mustang GT is its powertrain – the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8, which in this guise was factory-rated to generate 225 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. That power flows to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission to create a classic combination – one that’s still around today, in fact – though for many, the appeal of this older model is far stronger than anything currently in production.
