You're looking at an affordable, loaded, and survivor-level icon with a terrific presentation and poise. And yes, this 1986 Ford Mustang GT convertible has a fuel-injected 5.0 V8 heart.
The Mustang convertible was quite distinct in 1986, and so it's nice to find one that's so preserved. The Oxford White paint shows all the right signs of the original that was applied at the Michigan factory over 35 years ago. While no one will call the finish perfect, it is perfect for those who .....
like a survivor-level car that shows it with distinction. All others understand that the value price can leave room in your budget for updating and upgrading this one as you see fit. But we like how the white makes for a great contrast to the coordinating black elements, like the headlight buckets, rear luggage rack, pinstriping, and rub strip that hugs the entire body. Plus, the black stripe GT hood treatment really makes this dark side look sporty. Even the bright details are attractive - from the factory alloys to the large dual exhaust tips.
The black roof is a newer investment from 2022. It fits with the color theme and even has a glass black window. So this Mustang looks good with the top up. But of course, a convertible like this is really best with top down. In fact, the gray interior likes to add some subtle details to unite the interior and exterior, like the red pinstripe on the outside that feels like it's repeated on the red piping for the seats and floor mats. This even has the little things that make a nice difference, like the convertible boot and working under-dash courtesy lights. This convertible came loaded with a power top, cruise control, power locks, a tilt wheel, an armrest center console, fog lamps, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo. It will also take just a little added servicing to get details like the rear power windows and R134a air conditioning ideally functioning again. What's especially attractive is the level of driver-ready style with well-bolstered high-back bucket seats and the dual-spoke steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the original speedo and tach.
The 5.0 High Output V8 continued to evolve, and 1986 is a pivotal year for Mustang fans. This is when they would introduce sequential electronic fuel injection. With its great sound, stout performance, and impressive torque, this injected V8 made it the pony car of choice for an entire generation. While we don't have confirmation on motor originality, this does have all the signs of being the original and while we all know you can tune these to be robust beasts, this one remains refreshingly stock and clean. It's built to be a good all-around cruiser with power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission that features highway-ready overdrive.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and repair manual. This is the Mustang drop-top that leaves room in your budget to create a power pony or enjoy a truly significant survivor. And no matter your plans, you have distinct and driving fun from day one. Call today!!!
