In August 1986, the Mustang received a facelift for the 1987 model year on both the interior and exterior. The front end was restyled to look more like the SVO which gave the car more of an “Aero” look, in keeping with Ford’s overall modern styling direction. The interior received an all-new dash, center console, and revised seat and door trim. With the SVO discontinued, models were now pared down to LX and GT. Taillights on the LX were revised with clear lenses for the turn signals while the GT now wore specific body-colored triple louvered lenses. The quarter glass windows lost their louvers and now sported a single larger flush piece of glass lettered with “Mustang” at the bottom rear corners. The GT models featured new round fog lamps and gained aerodynamic lower bodyside skirting as well as new turbine style 15-inch (380 mm) wheels. The 302 cu in (4.9 L) Mustangs became popular with the aftermarket performance industry. The V6 option was discontinued while the 2.3 L four-cylinder gained fuel injection, leaving only the 2.3 L four-cylinder and the 302 cu in (4.9 L) V8.

V8-powered Mustangs received E7TE heads and forged aluminum pistons with valve reliefs in 1987, as opposed to the flat-tops used in the previous year.  The E7 cylinder heads were sourced from the truck line after the 1986 swirl-port design demonstrated performance problems. Power ratings increased to 225 horsepower and 300 ft-lbs of torque.

The original owner purchased this Mustang GT convertible new as a 35th wedding anniversary present for his wife. They have kept the car in its original condition and used it sparingly since then. In addition to the wheels and stereo shown, the original turbine-style wheels and factory radio will be included as part of the sale.  The only thing the seller notes is that the heater core has been bypassed.

    Sweet ride, even though the rims are not the original GT turbine rims, these LX rims were all the rave back then. Gives any Pony GT a cleaner, sportier look. Besides, those turbine rims were a pain to clean.

      Dano, worth noting is that the sale includes the original GT Turbine rims as well as the five-spoke ones currently mounted on the car.
