This Mustang was ordered and purchased new from Curley & Johnston Ford in Monroe, WA in November of 1988 by a then 68 year old female. The original owner kept every bit of paperwork ever associated with car. The car will come with every brochure, manual, handouts, advertisements, original sales receipts, check stubs, Ford customer service questionnaires, receipts for all maintenance performed, handwritten copies of letter she wrote to Ford, original owners death certificate and court appointed executor certificate. Also included is a diary/fuel log the original owner kept from the day she purchased the car that is shockingly detailed. It documents the day the car arrived, where it was picked, the miles on the odometer when it arrived. The mileage before and after the test drive, the PSI in the tires upon arrival. Listed in the diary is the date, miles, number of gallons pumped, the cost of the gas, and the MPG of every gas fill-up for every month and year between 1988-2002. It also documents a trip to California. how much gas and engine oil was consumed on the trip. I have never seen anybody keeping such detailed handwritten records and would not have believed it if I had not seen this with my own eyes. This car has clearly been taken care of and pampered itâ€™s whole life and its condition shows it.
This car is completely original except for the battery. It still wears the original Goodyear VR60 â€œGatorbackâ€ tires it came with from the factory and are still in excellent condition. The headlight/turn signal/parking lamps are the original Ford units and are crystal clear, shiny, and have no rock chips or scratches.They look like they are brand new. All of the glass is the original Carlite glass, crystal clear and in perfect condition. The paint is in excellent shape. The clear coat is shiny and has no sun damage or fading whatsoever. All of the door seals, weather stripping around the windows are like new! and soft. This is a common problem on Fox Body Mustangs of this vintage. The weatherstripping becomes faded and petrified. All of the black exterior plastic including the mirrors, cowl grille, and trim is in perfect condition. The real flaw on the exterior is a small scrape on the passenger side rear bumper and quarter edge made by the transport company from the previous owner. It will be sold as is so the new owner can decide to fix it or keep it original.
The interior is in unbelievable condition. Everything is like new. The drivers seat has zero wear on it and the passengers and rear seats do not appear to have ever been sat in. There is no hint of sun damage or fading anywhere in the interior. Common wear areas like the steering wheel, shift knob/boot, and pedals are like new. It smells exactly like it did back in 1988. The only indication that it has been used is the floor mat. The headliner is spotless and in perfect condition along with the glass, mirrors, gauges, and carpet. The ashtray has never been used and not broken like practically every Fox Body Mustang out there.
The engine bay is clean and everything except the battery is original. The spark plug wires are the originals and stamped â€œ1989.â€ The factory date codes colored stamps on front fender and front core support is still visible. All vin stickers on the body panels are intact. Common rust prone areas of Fox Body Mustangs like the undercarriage and shock towers are rust free. Comes with the original spare tire, jack, tire iron, and lug nut wheel lock all of which has never been used.
The 1989 Mustang GT is a highly desirable year as it is the only year it came with the non air bag tilt steering wheel and a mass air flow ECU replacing the inferior 86-88 speed density setup. It has the most sought after gray interior. The 5.0L Fox Body Mustangs are increasing in value rapidly and quickly becoming hot collectors cars and soon to be classics. This is your chance to own one of the nicest examples on eBay. Due to the age of this car, it is being sold as is.
