Retro Pony Interior: 1989 Ford Mustang GT 5-Speed Convertible – Sold!
Fox Body Mustangs symbolize the return of V8-powered, stick-shifted performance in modern cars and nice examples such as this slightly modified 1989 GT convertible listed on Craigslist in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey appears to be a great example of how to get into the collector car hobby for under ten large. We think it’s no coincidence the current caretaker has his Mustang priced exactly at the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool #3 “Good” estimate of $9,200.
Looking past the oversize truck spoiler and period-correct “Day 2” Weld Wheels (we’d remove the former and change out the latter) what’s really striking about this example is the completely redone interior. Instead of simply restoring it, the owner of the past 15 years recovered the seats and door panels in what appears to be a modern interpretation of the first generation Mustang’s desirable Pony interior. We like how the upholsterer eliminated the original headrests to recreate the look. That combined with what appears to be white-knob-topped Hurst shifter and Flowmaster exhausts has us flirting with selling the Eldorado to make this deal work.
If you’re looking for a turn-key modern classic that has been obviously well cared for, remains RADwood eligible, and you’re cool with slight modifications, you would be hard-pressed to do better than this Mustang GT. Good luck with the purchase!
