Foxy Fox: 1988 Ford Mustang GT

The Fox generation Ford Mustang didn’t just replace the great selling Mustang II (seriously, the ’74-’78 IIstang holds four of the ten top model year Mustang sales figures) it also replaced the Maverick and the Pinto to a certain extent.  It did this because it was a competent chassis with a wide variety of available powerplants sold for a reasonable price.  Not much has changed since then.  Find this 1988 Ford Mustang GT here on eBay bidding for $4,550 with a few hours to go, located in Glen Burnie, MD. 

Although I find myself somewhat attracted to the funky quad headlight early Fox mustangs (I’d love to get my hands on a Mexican market 81-84 that uses some OE Capri body parts) the later 87-93 restyled Mustangs certainly look more modern. 

Powering an 88 GT is Ford’s legendary 5.0 V8, rated at  225 horsepower and 300 ft-lbs of torque — not big numbers by today’s standards, but plenty for a cruiser like this automatic equipped version.  This Mustang has only 39k miles on the odometer and looks like a great buy.
