5.0L HO V8
This 1986 Ford Mustang GT has exactly what you want. You get the classic features like the fuel-injected 5.0 V8 and a five-speed. And now it\'s met with an upgraded suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Best of all, you get to enjoy it for an A/C interior with the T-tops out!
This coupe has that unmistakable look of a cool GT. After all, these earlier 3rd gen fastbacks had some added distinction with their sunken in headlights and quarter window flair that made them look like a true evolution on the original. The fundamentals are correct, including good rubber gaskets and doors that close with authority. The overall idea is to present a car that\'s made for driving. So you can remove the hood decal and/or give the paint some extra love for those looking for a show-ready presentation. But for the rest of us, this one is about a good shine but high function. It\'s just like spirit of Steve McQueen\'s Bullitt Mustang, and you know that because this is now wearing the Bullitt Mustang 17-inch alloys.
These early 3rd generation coupes also had quite a stylish upholstery pattern inside. Two-tone gray cloth with sporty red piping sets the attitude for this GT nicely, especially with the well bolstered bucket seats up front. This one comes loaded with best amenities such as power windows, power locks, rear defogger, power steering, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB input. And the T-tops are another great reason to have an earlier 3rd gen. These would disappear from the option list within a couple of years, and these even still have proper storage bags. Plus, factory air conditioning upgraded to cold-blowing R134a refrigerant means it\'s easy to enjoy to open-top experience even in the summer. Not only is this car comfortable, but it also never loses the performance feeling of GT. A well-placed shifter, upgraded sports steering wheel, and white-faced gauges get you ready for the open road.
The 5.0-liter High Output V8 continued to evolve, and 1986 is a pivotal year for Mustang fans. This is when they would introduce fuel-injection. So with an awesome heart already at the center of this coupe, they worked on strengthening the driving experience. The upgraded ignition and wires keep this FI motor firing quickly and smoothly. The aluminum radiator helps keep the full package running cool. The shorty headers let the motor exhale freer into the dual exhaust. And there\'s a full tower brace from Maximum Motorsports to add strength. The five-speed manual transmission gives you full control as it sends the power to the 3.73 rear end with upgraded diff case. And as you looking back there, don\'t forget to spot the upgraded rear suspension with tubular control arms and a Maximum Motorsports Panhard bar kit. Add in the upgraded four-wheel power disc brakes and the modern ZR-rated tires, and this is quite a sharper GT.
This is the cool-looking fastback that has all the features and distinction you want. So when it\'s all offered for an obtainable price, you don\'t want to let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
