  • This is one of the nicest original paint, unmodified, collector quality 5.0's in the world. Really amazing un-restored vehicle! Never any rust or accidents with no bumpers, glass or trim ever removed and is a one owner car. Engine and transmission never apart. It was special ordered in March, 1987 from Robberson Ford in Prineville, OR by one of my longtime female customers who was a retired nurse. Before this car, she owned a Candyapple Red 1968 Shelby GT350 Convertible that she bought new, and a 1957 Fairlane Skyliner retractable hardtop convertible that she also bought new. She ordered it up in OR as the sales taxes were less than CA and almost all dealers in CA were marking up the new "Aero" Fox Body 1987 Mustangs several 1000's of dollars above sticker price. Robberson Ford ordered it for her at MSRP which most dealers were not willing to do on a special order car. Car was built to her special order specs in April 1987 and shipped to Robberson Ford where she kept it up there for the spring and summer of 1987, then drove it down to her 8 months of the year home in warm and dry Palm Springs, CA in September 1987 where it has been garage kept since. She kept it registered in Oregon as registration was considerably less expensive than CA until her death at the age of 94 this past May. She left the car to her 45 year old grandson who brought it to me to sell for him as he already has 3 cars and didn't need or want another. He put less than 100 miles on it and although he loved it, he admitted he is not a collector, or even a car person. I own a Mustang shop and have done a great deal of the maintenance on this car in the past 25 years. She was very meticulous with the oil changes every 3K miles or one a year, which ever came first. All fluids and filters were religiously changed on time or before. I've probably changed the transmission, rear end, and power steering fluids on this car 5X each for her in the past 25 years. That was just the type of person she was. She liked to keep her "equipment" as she called it in top notch condition at all times. She often told me this car was the most reliable, most fun car she had ever driven. She took the utmost care of it. Car has never been to a machine car wash and was always lovingly hand washed and waxed by her. In fact, she would even come to my shop and have me put her car on the lift for her to clean (and wax!!) the inside of the wheels and underside at least a few times per year even in her 90's! If I didn't tell you the car had 84K miles, you'd think it had less than 10K miles. The fact that it has been driven and enjoyed is what has kept it so well preserved. Many of the miles in the past 15 years were from her taking this car to various Mustang and Ford shows through out CA, AZ and NV. She won over 50 1st place trophies with this car over the years. Super low mileage ones tend to get dried up seals and start leaking everywhere when then put into use. Nothing leaks on this one and nothing ever has. Car has been caught in the rain less than 5 times in its whole life according to her and I believe it. The dealership professionally applied undercoating to the underside floorboards before the car was delivered per her request which has preserved the underside beautifully and also cuts down on road noise considerably. The original Scarlet Red paint on body is very nice with a few thin spots and a few small dab touch ups where there were chips here and there. There are no scratches, dents, or dings. With original paint, you know there is nothing hiding under the paint. It is almost impossible to find one of these cars where the bodies and undersides are so clean and un-fiddled with. The survivor cars are the whole new trend now and this one shows beautifully. How many 32 year old cars have never been apart and never had any paint work or accidents? Every body panel has it's original VIN sticker on it. Most older cars don't drive as well as they look....this one ABSOLUTELY does and is a blast to drive and easy to drive. It doesn't have all the computers and sensors that new cars have. This car is simple, inexpensive and easy to maintain. It gets thumbs up where ever you go and cruises at freeway speeds with ease, Car does not ever stall, is never hard to start, does not have any flat spots, and does not run hot even in the hottest of days in traffic. Even when sitting for 2 weeks, 1 turn of the key and she roars to life, first time, every time!! It is also very easy to drive and a great amount of fun. Brakes are like a brand new car. It stops on a dime! Steering is tight and responsive with no play. Buy It Now for $12,900 and I will pay for 1/2 the cost of to your door shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states, or up to $500 towards the cost of a plane ticket for you to fly out and drive this beauty home and enjoy a little vacation in sunny, warm Palm Springs, CA that averages 105 degrees during the month of August. If you are local and pick the car up in person, I will discount the price $500 also. Whom ever hits Buy it Now, get this beautiful, needs nothing to enjoy now, convertible Fox body and 1/2 price shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states or $500 towards the cost of a plane ticket from anywhere. Don't miss out and regret it later, you will never find another 32 year old, 1 owner Mustang 5.0 this well kept and is ready to do what ever you choose with it....shows, parades, club events, daily driver, weekend car, or can even be a tax right off if used for your business!

  • Thank you for viewing my auction. After being disappointed by all the ratty collectible vehicles out there and looking at this one, please feel free to message me. This car is exceptionally nice from top to bottom!! Any other collector car you may be looking at, make sure they have underside shots. Even super low mileage cars if stored in humid area, the undersides are rusty and corroded just from moisture in the air. This one is super clean and the many underside pictures show this. You can see all the original markings, tags, crayon scribbles, and even the black out factory pinch weld spray that Ford did. This car is as solid as can be! Car was special ordered with few options which makes it very rare. The LX models had the same drive-train and suspension as the GT, but with out all the extra bulky ground effects and weight of the GT. All the road test results found the LX 5.0 Sport model to be the fastest of the 87-93 Mustangs. If you pulled a Marti Report on this car, I am pretty confident, that this car is probably a 1 of 1 built like it with Scarlet Red exterior (was a 87-89 model years only color and much rarer than the more common, darker Cabernet Red), black power top with glass rear window, Smoke Grey cloth interior, 5.0 V8 High Output engine, cruise control, 2.73 ratio traction lock 8.8" differential, automatic overdrive 4 speed automatic transmission, and power mirrors. I've never seen another V8 Mustang convertible EVER from 87-93 with out A/C and power windows. That's the way she wanted it, so that's the way she ordered it!! Who needs A/C with the top down anyway? Every time she drove it the top was down. How many of the unmolested cars are on the road, let alone in this condition still today? I am sure you won't find another like it, or even close!! It will continue to climb and climb in value. Fox bodies that are un-messed with have skyrocketed in price the past few years and I am confident will continue to go up and up. This is a Buy It Now auction and it will sell and you will not find another like it for such a great price, such low mileage and OCD maintenance since new. Most of my vehicles I list on eBay end up selling before listing ends due to time on the Buy It Now where you get it immediately!! No document fees or taxes collected by me. Don't miss out, this incredible Mustang 5.0 will sell, hopefully to you. It has been lovingly hand washed and waxed often, even the engine box, door and trunk jams, and underside are very clean. Look at the refection's in the paintin my pictures in the link above. All original Carlite logo glass for all windows. Windshield does have 1 minor chip that is not in your line of sight. Original convertible top has no fading, wear marks, or cuts. Power top works properly and is as fast as it was new. Engine has never been apart. Try finding one of these these cars that has never been apart like this one. It looks, starts, runs, smells, and drives like a much newer car. Suspension and steering is tight with no wandering or looseness, no clunks when going over bumps, brakes stop on a dime, parking brake works properly, very clean interior and underside. Owner's manual still in the original glove box. No worn down seat cloth upholstery or foam here. In some of the interior pictures the seats look like they are lighter and darker shades....this is because I just had my worker shampoo the seats and they were not fully dry when I took the pictures. These seats are VERY comfortable even on longer trips!! Much more comfortable than the GT seats. Inside of the truck boasts the original trunk liners, mat, convertible top boot/carrying cover, spare tire/jack, and plastic mudflaps that have been on the car since new that have kept the bottom of the car road rash free. You just don't see Fox bodies this clean!! There is not a nicer Fox Body Mustang available for less than $13K delivered to your door. I can honestly say that, because there are none other like this car anywhere for sale. Look around, you'll waste a great deal of time and then see what I am talking about and then most likely missed this car to someone else. If you want a project, please buy one, as this is not it. Please take the time to view the link above with the 150+ detailed photos it IS WELL WORTH the wait to scroll through them all, and PLEASE read the entire description before asking questions (I know it is long, but I wanted to cover all bases) If you are serious, I know you will read every word, and look at every picture in detail. This is the type of person I am looking for, for a quick and easy sale. I am very easy to deal with and feel free to message me for my phone number or send me yours and we can discuss every aspect of this amazing car. This car is priced for a quick sale to the discriminating enthusiast/collector that appreciates all the details, cleanliness, and correctness of a beautiful Mustang 5.0. Everything correct on this car for both finish and function, so you don't have to do a thing to enjoy it immediately. Ready to show, play, collect, or to just enjoy right away. Perfect advertising vehicle for your business too and can even be a tax write-off if used as such. Can be used in parades, proms, etc

  • Half the cost of shipping included to your door by a licensed, bonded and insured auto transport company that I have used for many years with no issues or you are welcome to fly into the Palm Springs International Airport and I will pick you up and you can drive this gem home and enjoy a little vacation!! I would not hesitate to have my daughter or wife drive this cross country!! If you choose this route I will pay up to $500 towards your travel expenses to get to me to pick up the car in person in beautiful Palm Springs, CA where it averages 105 degrees in August. Either of these options are only available if Buy It Now is used.

  • Price is a Buy it Now of $12,900 and half the cost of included to your door shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states. I can usually get cars shipped with in a few days from my door to yours. I am NOT interested in any trades as I am only selling this beauty for the late owners' grandson as he has too many cars and wants this car to go to a good home. I have been storing it for him in my warehouse since June as I did not want to see the car sit outside since his grandmother's house sold. There is not a nicer, more fun to drive Mustang 5.0 out there for the money!! I priced this to sell, and to sell quickly with out fuss. You won't find a better car for anywhere close to this money. The lower priced ones will surely cost you a lot more money in the long run and still wont be as nice of a car as this one is already. Car is very smooth and easy to drive. Tires have less than 150 miles on them and all fresh maintenance and all fluids done for you so you can drive and enjoy right away unlike the others you will have to put money in right away. I put $2400 in this car to make it the best of the best in order to sell with confidence. Your wife could drive it and enjoy it too!! It is easy to start, drive, park and drive on the freeway. No taxes, document fees, or games like other charge, collect, and play. This car will sell, don't miss out, you will never find another like it in this condition with such tasteful upgrades. No expenses spared ever on this car from top to bottom, and front to back. Everything functions like it is supposed to. Message me with your phone # and we can discuss.

  • In my 25+ years in the automotive business, I have rarely seen, owned, or driven a nicer built and well vehicle that is so fantastically built and taken care of. I have owned over 1000 Mustangs, Shelby's, Big Block's, Boss's, Pantera's, Saleen's, Corvette's, Camaros, Roush's, Cobra's. Lightning's etc, mostly collector models, and rarely see a vehicle (of ANY type) kept in this condition that is over 30 years old. I am overly fanatical with all my cars, but rarely see others that are like me. I have over 20 cars in my personal collection and do not like to sell any of them, but when I do, the person that purchases what I'm selling gets the best of the best. This car is one of them and a true gem. Suspension and steering is smooth and not bouncy or twitchy when driving down the road, or on the freeway and handles beautifully. Does not wander when on freeway. This Mustang is appraised and insured for $20K on a collector car policy through Hagerty Collector Car Insurance and it is $285 per year for full coverage and agreed value of $20K with no mileage limitations. Most insurance companies will do the same for you and insure it as a collector vehicle and it is only going to continue to climb in value if kept in this condition. Be sure to check out my other auctions for my Grabber Blue 835 HP twin Turbo Shelby GT350R that I bought new and my shop built for SEMA, a 1 of 1 Ford Executive special ordered Grabber Green 1971 Mustang Fastback ( SOLD ) with M code 351C 4V, 4 Speed Toploader with Traction Lock differential, front and rear spoilers, competition suspension, power steering, power disc brakes, A/C, factory tachometer, Ram Air, factory AM/FM stereo, Magnum 500 wheels, fold down seat and also mostly original paint, and my mint Mustang GT convertible that I also bought new, and a 53K mile mint 1997 Saleen Mustang S281 convertible from my personal collection,Soon I will also be listing a mint 1 owner Sonic Blue 2003 Ford Ranger Tremor Supercab with 66K miles, and a mint 1996 Bronco 5.8L 4x4 that I will be selling for a customer.

Feel free to ask any questions and I will answer promptly. I have never had a person purchase a vehicle from me sight unseen that was not thrilled with their purchase!! My 100% positive feedback from those that have purchased from me in the past 13 years clearly reflect this, and many of the transactions were for $100K + vehicles.

  • In summary: EVERYTHING works properly as intended except for the fuel gauge works intermittently which is most likely the sending unit which is a less than $100 part if it bothers you. Before it gets to 1/4 tank it shows No burnt out bulbs anywhere. The dash lights, gauges, signals, etc all work perfectly and are accurate. All silk screening on the dash levers and switches are like new. Ashtray/cigarette lighter have never been used and car has never been smoked in. Ashtray door even opens and closes properly and arm rest pads are not all warped like most. Even the console door is not broken like most are. You can let it idle all day in 100+ degree heat and it does not get hot. Other than the newer original Ford 16" 91-93 Mustang Pony wheels that I installed for her around in 1994, and the CD payer that I put in for her around 2013, this car is all original Ford issue. This beautiful Mustang is absolutely like a step back in time. It runs and drives excellent and has never been raced or driven hard. There are no odd odors, odd rattles, or odd noises. It passed smog like a brand new car this past June (picture of the readings in picture link) and there is no smoke that comes out of the exhaust. I can let it sit for 2 weeks and it drips nothing in my air conditioned and humidity controlled warehouse. Doors close solid with a thump. You can drive thiscar anywhere. Mileage may also varyminimallyascar may be driven for supervised test drives and/or inspections and I do drive it after letting it warm up to keep fluids flowing through all systems. Car will still be kept indoors when not being driven. Please feel free to ask questions and I will answer promptly. This car doesn't need a thing to enjoy right away. It is a no excuse, honest car, that needs nothing to use it and enjoy immediately. It has been maintained right and is completely sorted from top to bottom, front to back. The paint color combination and options are simply stunning and it turns heads where ever you go. People stop at stop lights and gas stations and make comments on how clean and original this car is. It is a steal at under $13K shipped to your door! Car is simple and inexpensive to maintain and is very safe, peppy and fun. Be the envy of your friends and neighbors!No excuses, issues, or stories with this car. Anyone can just go buy a new car....but how many can have a 32 year old, Mustang in the timeless 5.0 body style that still looks like new? I would rate the car overall a solid 9.5 out of 10 with 10 being perfect. Have a great day and thank you for looking and (hopefully) reading my long description..I just want to be thorough. Each time I think of something else, I revise the listing, add more pictures, and before I know it, it ends up this long!! Very few read what I end up writing, but if you have, thank you!! The first person that reads my entire listing, that has the means, is almost always the buyer, so hopefully that is you. I write as much as I do and take the amount of pictures that I do, so you can be 100% comfortable as to exactly what you are getting. Please enjoy the pictures above and the videos below. Feel free to contact me with any questions and have a great day. :
