Description for Ford Mustang 1989

This is a very clean 1989 Mustang GT with a302 bored .40 over (308)(less than 8500 miles since build and install). I am only selling because I am in the Army and headed overseas. It was featured in the June 2014 issue of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords and won the best 80's coupe at theAutorama show in Dallas. When I purchased the car it had a 302 in it and already had some upgrades including the Paxton Supercharger GT40X Aluminum Heads BBK Headers and a few other upgrades. It was still what appeared to be the original paint and interior and already had the original style Pony Rims from the 90-93 Model. Not long after I purchased the car I took it to a shop to get a leak fixed on the back part of the intake. The shop that did the work dropped a washer in the motor without realizing it and when they started the engine it damaged a cylinder and a piston. As bad as this was it became an opportunity for me since they agreed to pay a portion of the price for a new engine and agreed to do the install for free. I asked is I could order some other parts to do some upgrades since the engine would be out and they agreed to charge me 50% the normal labor rate on those items so I took advantage of the opportunity. This is a clean original appearing 89 Mustang that gives you that look you rarely see anymore with the performance upgrades we all wish we had. The original look with the fun and still has the reliability to be driven often. I run 93 Octane gas and drive the car to work often. The only issue I have ever had is a few times the starter has dragged on the first turn of the ignition key but on those times I would turn it again and it fired right up so not sure what the cause was. Below is a list of the upgrades and other specifics. The dyno read 417 HP to the rear wheels and the car sounds awesome everyone complements me not only on the look but the overall sound when I pull up.Around 105000 miles on the car overall but less than 8500 on the engine that was installed in Fall of 2013 and many of the bolt-on parts and the tires have less than 10000 miles on them. When I put new engine in I made sure to replace many of the parts and upgrade them along the way. The overall car has a little over 105000 miles on it based on the odometer. Please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have about the car

I am sure I have forgotten a few things as well. Whoever wins this car will surely enjoy it. The only things that need to be looked into are the few minor paint issues the A/C not blowing cold and the occasional starter drag. Other then those issues or concerns I really cannot think of anything else that needs any attention
