1986 Ford Mustang GT
1986 Ford Mustang GT
The third generation Mustang is frequently referred to as the Fox Body Mustang since it used the new Fox platform. Fox Body Mustangs were produced between 1979 and 1993, the longest generation of Mustang to date, though there were several significant body updates made throughout this generation. The Fox Body Mustangs were seen by many as a return to what worked for the first generation of Mustang, and a step away from the failings of the Mustang II. Though the Fox Body Mustangs were popular at their release, they've only gained popularity in the years since then. The Fox Body has gained a reputation as a modders dream, and with the right modifications this fox can fly.
Presenting a well-kept 5.0 Liter V8 powered Mustang GT with 81,816 miles which cannot be verified as the title reads 84,023 actual miles but the odometer shows the aforementioned total. This car shows well, and goes well, and is a very nice example of the final year of the 4 eyed Fox Bodied Mustang which is a consignor-stated special-order car with an automatic transmission.
Bathed in a respray of Light Regatta Blue with new charcoal decals, all steel panels are straight and show consistent gaps all around. A fiberglass cowl induction hood leads the way, (the original hood is included with the purchase), which is held in place with front hood pins, floats just above a body matching neoprene crash bumper with dual glass headlights in black insets on either side of the mouth like air intake. Down low is more inset lighting in the form of Marchal foglights and noted is a black belt line trim that appears as a stripe as it has an inset area running the length of the trim before ending in a gray GT inset callout. Badging is correct and clean as is all the window trim. A sweeping hatchback provides room for the large rear window complete with a defogger and the glass has a light smoke tint applied. Rear quarter window louver trimmings accentuate the hatch line and up top an aftermarket sunroof has been cut into the steel. Our consignor notes that factory rear window louvers will come with your purchase. The rear bumper, like the front, is not marred and is in nice condition with polished tips below and flush mount wrap around taillights just above. Polished lip, black woven lace 16" ARE wheels are seen on all 4 corners and the purchase will include the original 10-hole aluminum wheels. Im feelin' foxy...
Some dark gray vinyl and some gray carpeting cover the door panels and a swooping black and chrome trim spear matches the armrest/door pull sweep angle. Black actuators and power window toggles are mounted on as well. Inside matching dark gray broadcloth with a perforation patterning throughout the inserts to the high back buckets, and light gray broadcloth is reserved for the bolsters. All delineated by red piping and they are in very nice condition, no soils or faults as to tears and even the open headrests remain in good condition. In the back 2 grabber 2 plus 2 buckets as a bench stretches across the rear of the car. Gray carpeting covers all the floors and looks just fine. A very clean molded center vinyl console houses the B&M shifter and vehicle information center with a red LED digital clock. Just above is an AM/FM/Cassette player which is courtesy of Kenwood. The dash is topped with a dark gray crack free pad which hovers over an industrial gauge front and has black faced gauges deeply inserted. A nice padded rally steering wheel is fronting the dash. The fuzzy felted headliner is gray and looks good and a shout out to the clean hatch area with its vinyl luggage pull cover and Kenwood CD changer. Just like butter…
The clean 5.0 Liter HO V8 pumps out 200hp and is fed its perfectly metered fuel via EFI and has the added benefit of a chrome tubed high flow air intake. Bolted to the back of the venerable mill is an AOD 4-speed automatic transmission with a B&M shift kit. This combination pushes power back to a Ford 8.8” rear with consignor stated 3.73 gears. Phat to the max.
Nice and clean, structurally sound and with only a dusting of surface rust on the usual suspects. Even in the lower doors where they meet the rockers, show as showroom with very good rubber linings, and absolutely no rust. Power disc brakes upfront, and power drums for the rear. Independent coil springs are up front and in the back is a 4 link and coil springs to provide the ride. Factory headers flow down to a cat-back Flowmaster exhaust system...Word...
Our resident muscle car expert drove this example and reported good power from the 5.0 Liter setup and firm shifting from the slightly worked over automatic. It handled nicely and has bias free panic stopping. All functions were working nicely in this very clean interior and comfortable cruiser save for the A/C blowing warm and the headlight switch not being securely mounted to the dash front.
Fox bodied Mustangs are increasing in popularity due to their return to more like the original Mustang concept of the early 1960's. For 1986 the GT was back and meant business and this example would be right at home in any serious Mustang collection. So, what are you waiting for? Don't miss the opportunity to own a desirable piece of Ford performance history!
