1989 Ford Mustang GT 5.0
This is a Mustang GT that I have owned for more than 20 years. It was my daily driver for many years, and now I want to find it a good home. I just don't have the time to wrench on it anymore, and I'd rather see it go to someone with the time to take care of it.
It has quite a few modifications, and I'll do my best to describe them:
*Engine rebuilt in 2012 with GT40 heads, a slightly more aggressive cam (I believe Crane brand) and Edelbrock Performer upper and lower intakes. About 20,000 miles since this rebuild.
*5-speed T5 transmission rebuilt in 2012 with a new high-hp clutch.
*While I had the engine and tranny out I repainted the engine bay.
*Cooling fan converted to electric model, with a variable speed automatic fan control unit that runs as needed for cooling.
*Upgraded the mass air to 95 mm and 30 pound fuel injectors.
*K&N cool air intake.
*Converted for 130 amp alternator.
*Cobra 17X8 chrome wheels front and back. The chrome is a bit rough and should be re-chromed.
*130 MPH speedometer with white faced reverse glow inserts that glow at night
If I had to choose the next project for the car, I would say paint. The bodywork is solid and smooth, but the paint has some imperfections. It was repainted by me in 2013, and I am not very happy about the quality of my work. I was meticulous about studying the art of painting for months before the project, and I used quality paint, but there is no substitute for hard-earned experience in the world of auto paint. There are some drips and some orange-peel, and areas that got chipped and started to rust. The paint could use to be sanded flat and professionally sprayed.
