1989 Ford Mustang GT Convertible - 7,950 Miles - Collector Owned - None Better

This beautiful 1989 Mustang GT is part of a 25+ car private collection in South Carolina/Pennsylvania.

Sold brand new on June 9th, 1989 by Rich Ford in Albuquerque, NM, this car remained under the care of its original and very fastidious owner for more than 20 years until the second owner acquired it in October of 2012. Special ordered in stunning Regatta Blue over Opal Gray leather interior, this incredible car had been driven only 7,406 miles at the time of my acquisition.

As you would expect from an ultra-low-mileage vehicle, the car is simply spectacular in every way - as close to a new Mustang GT as you'll ever find - and truly an investment-grade vehicle in all regards.Since my ownership, the car has been maintained at my private facility in Pennsylvania and then moved to South Carolina where it has been serviced by my personal staff who maintain all the cars in my collection. As of today, the car shows 7,950 original miles. Please allow for a few more miles as the car is available to be test driven by interested parties.

I cannot say enough about the extreme originality of this car. The original owner considered it his dream car and treated it accordingly.

The car has never seen rain. Ever. If there was even the slightest hint of rain in the forecast, this car was staying safely tucked away in its garage. I'm proud to say I've continued this tradition.

I would not hesitate to drive this car across the country tomorrow. Along the way, I'd make sure to hit a few tracks just for fun and I'd do my best to find and enter a local car show (which I would win). I believe this car to be among the finest, if not the finest, of its kind available anywhere in the world andan instant contender at any preservation class concourse in the country. If you've been searching for a very special car, I urge you to consider this beautiful example. Further information is provided below.


The car starts, stops and drives exactly as you would expect. It pulls hard, revs smoothly and runs cool with excellent oil pressure.The clutch is strong, the car shifts precisely and brakes easily and in a straight line. There are no oil leaks or smoking from the engine.The car has never been involved in any type of accident or collision and is 100% rust free and as clean and solid as its low mileage suggests. Everything in the car works as it should - lights, switches, wipers, gauges, everything. The car is, of course, numbers-matching and the sensation behind the wheel is that of driving a brand new car.

The car still rides on its original (and beautiful) date-coded Goodyear Eagle VR60 tires that show almost no wear and, while they may not be the tire of choice for the safety-minded, it's hard not to love the extreme originality of this spectacular car.

The original AC system is intact has been converted to the updated R134-A in May 2016 along with both convertible top rams being replaces as one of them began to leak.I still have both of them and they will go with the car.


From every angle, the car presents beautifully. The original paint is in outstanding condition owing, at least in part, to a lifetime in dry weather first in New Mexico then in Texas. There are no dents or scratches - not even a door ding - and the factory original paint appears closer to 27 days old than 27 years.The trim, lenses and exterior hardware are all absolutely outstanding. The car retains 100% of its original glass including its original windshield with correct, factory markings. The convertible top is like new and beautiful.

The paint has been professionally metered and all panels measured between 3.5 and 4.3 mils confirming the original paint. Photographs of the metering session can be requested at anytime.

In my years of collecting classic sports cars, I have rarely seen a car of this vintage in more pristine condition or one that presents closer to new. The cosmetics of this original paint, original interior car will exceed your expectations.


The interior of this Mustang is a testament to what original, low-mileage cars should be.

The dash is perfect - free of cracks and showing no warping. The door panels are flawless. The controls and various switches are beautiful. The seats are outstanding. The carpets are spotless. The gauges are clear and bright appearing as new. The steering wheel is pristine. Unlike so many cars of the era, the original factory radio is still in the dash and functioning as it should.

I've taken the time to provide multiple, close-up photos of the interior from almost every angle. Please examine them closely and pay attention to the details. Yes, the big things like the dash, seats, and door panels all look excellent. But look even more closely at the small things. The interior details of this car are absolutely some of the best I've ever seen.

I've included multiple high-resolution photos with this listing. For more than 50 additional detailed photos, please email me at

There is a mileage discrepancy listed on the Carfax form when the car was inspected in 1998 at 6,703 miles and the technician entered the mileage as 67,003. While this is an obvious clerical error (the previous inspection in 1996 shows the correct mileage at 6,473 miles), the car still comes delivered with a notarized statement from the original owner documenting the error and the correct mileage.

For me, finding the right home for this car is as important as getting the best price. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss this car in more detail, please feel free to contact me. In-person inspections and test-drives are welcomed and encouraged but please do so before placing your bid or committing to a purchase.

I have a clear and correct Pennsylvania title for this vehicle in my possession. Transportation and delivery of this vehicle is the responsibility of the purchaser. I'll happily assist in any way I can. I'll accept payment by wire transfer, cash or certified cashier’s check. A $500 non-refundable deposit is due immediately by PayPal upon the end of the auction with the balance due within 10 business days.
