If you’re digging deeper into this 1987 Ford Mustang GT Convertible then you certainly are not looking for a stock cruiser. But you also can’t deny that there will always be a fundamental appeal in a true classic American drop-top with a fuel-injected V8 under the hood. And the value price means there’s room in your budget to make it an even more memorable custom.
Of course, you instantly noticed the wheels. Who misses true wire wheels finished in 24-karat gold plating??? They stand out from the car both metaphorically and physically because it’s the most defining feature. But look closely. You also have crystal clear headlights and the Cobra-style pony emblem. Those are the kind of details you get when someone appreciates a car for more than just its wheels. And the GT of this era looked distinctive with its full body kit, louvered tail light panel, fog light, and trunk rack. The gray and black two-tone is a good color combo, and the gray folding top goes well with the full color theme. You will find areas to improve if you’re looking to elevate this from a cruiser to a show car, and the price reflects that. Instead, the heart of the appeal is having a cool convertible that’s fun to drive anywhere and be memorable everywhere.
The interior continues the feeling of nice upgrades made to a GT Mustang. That means the driver-focused package of front bucket seats, full instruments, and a sports steering wheel on a tilt column. There are plenty of luxury features like power windows, power locks, cruise control, and a power convertible top with well-fitting boot. There are provisions for air conditioning, but the blend door may need servicing for this to ideally function. And because a cruiser like this is expected to have a quality audio system, this one has been upgraded with an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB, Bluetooth, and a Cerwin Vega subwoofer under the seats.
Under the hood is Ford’s famous 5.0-liter V8. We love these for being both hardy and powerful, and this even has been upgraded with a BBK cold air intake. Plus, when you have a more modern classic that has factory fuel-injection, there’s a nice feeling of all-around usefulness. So this drop-top GT is a true cruiser that’s truly powerful. And features like front-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive give you the driving confidence to fully enjoy this one.
The sale comes complete with the stock wheels if that’s how you’d choose to roll in this drop-top pony car. But really, we already know you like this one because it has the ideal mix of stout sports car components and stand-out style. So at a price like this, you know this custom Mustang will be gone soon.
