I have floated this idea way too many times, but it’s time to let my 32k mile ‘87 coupe go.

Absolutely love the car and consider it nearly irreplaceable, but I’ve only put a few hundred miles on it in the last two years and have other cars on my mind.

Here is a brief description, shoot me a message if you want to know more.

‘87 Mustang LX 5.0 5-spd
Low option car with manual door locks, crank windows and no AC from the factory
32k miles, factory bottom end with period-correct mods.
Cobra upper and lower intake manifold
Trickflow heads
1.6 roller rockers
Trickflow stage 1 cam
Motorsport ssp motormounts
24 pound motorsport injectors
Converted to mass air
BBK cold air intake
BBK headers and midpipe
Flowmaster catback
Motorsport clutch
Hurst short throw shifter
3.73 gears
Subframe connectors
Upper and lower control arms
Upgraded to 5 lug with 17” Pony-R wheels

Original paint with the exception of the hood (sprayed and cleared underneath for better presentation).

The paint is very glossy and shows well, there are some minor blemishes but this car gets compliments everywhere it goes.

Asking $30,000 - located near the MA/NH border.

was the car a radio delete from factory? What was done to the brakes? Any original docs with car? Do you have the original speedometer? Very sharp car.

Thanks! The car was NOT a radio delete car. It retains speakers and wiring, but the faceplate was removed.

I do not have the original speedo.

I have the window sticker, along with marti report and a stack of receipts from over the years for majority of the modifications and dyno sheet.

I do have some wiggle room on the price as I am making space for something else.

Wow, that’s a nice coupe! Best of luck with the sale OP, I assume you’ll sell it at or near your asking price without too much trouble.

Thank you! It really is a special car. Haven’t really come across one like it in my area and will probably be kicking myself in a few years !

As you know, carfax can be a little spotty from the early days but from what I can tell I am the 4th owner. I can send along any info that you need, just let me know.

I am quite certain this is the original motor.

These are the actual Pony R wheels, not from LMR according to prior owner.
Car is still on drum brakes out back

Congrats and that was one beautiful example of a low mileage notch. While you may have some regrets, I am guessing something caught you eye enough to ponder the sale.
