Good price or no dice 1987 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT

If you are undecided on the color of the Mustang to get, so today Good price or no dice GT is the pony for you. Let’s see if this unique paint scheme is worth dropping a cool ten-grand.

I can’t explain exactly why, but the episode of MythBusters that I remember most clearly is the one in which Adam and Jamie attempted – successfully, I should add – to polish a shit. I remembered this episode from reading the comments on Yesterday’s Incredibly Clean and Original 1983 Plymouth Sapporo. Although it’s not a shit, precisely, Plymouth name only has been viewed by many of you as an extremely well-kept example of what has been also a very low value car. This made its asking price of $ 21,900 untenable for the vast majority of you, resulting in an overwhelming 90% loss without dice. Hey, you can’t blame the seller for trying, can you?

today 1987 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT also try. What he’s trying to do exactly is not immediately obvious, however. The Musthe silk more interesting aspect is obviously the trio of colors it was painted. Iyour there is a lot going on under the choice of your own adventure color scheme too.

First of all, the advertisement for the “Stang is quite funny, even if a little uncomfortably frat-bro in his tone. Namely, the seller opens it with this statement:

When this thing comes down the street, bald eagles hover above their heads. The ghosts of the souls of dead presidents are trapped inside this car. (not the band) If you like women who wear clothes, LOOK ELSEWHERE. The clothes fall off when it goes.

No mule? this car is not for you. ‘Murica.

Now, I’ve always thought of the mullet as a hairstyle more closely associated with people who drive a Camaro and spell it, Camero. But once again, who am I to judge?

Right after the audience sets the intro, the vendor enters the meat and taters of the car. This information includes a dotted list of updates and information about the car. It’s extensive and notes not only the replacement of normal wear items like weatherstripping and carpets, but also mechanical updates to the small Windsor block under the hood.

These include a new exhaust fitted with a cam and manifold, as well as an aftermarket distributor and all new ignition wiring. On the maintenance side of the house, the power steering pump was replaced, as well as the other pulleys and the belt that drives the lot. The brake booster was also replaced although, according to the photo of it in the ad, the main tool used to do so was a pair of Vise-Grips.

The body looks straight and without any major issues other than a few gaps between the panels this probably from the factory. This the junk paint scheme that covers it is apparently a few years old and suffers from some wear here and there. Nothing serious, it seems. The interior cradles a pair of Corbeau Forza buckets and a spare three-spoke wheel. The backseat has been fitted with a swell-ho that frees up space but limits the car’s applicability as a carpool carrier.

The Hurst shifter topped with a cueball takes center stage here and looks pretty sexy with its twisty double angle and glossy polished finish. Everything looks reasonably tidy inside, but you have to be careful about getting in and out of those deep seats as it feels like a chore.

Mileage is a bit up in the air. The ad reads “Auto Shows 5,700 miles, but it was 157,000 miles and the engine was rebuilt 2,600 miles ago and has only driven 91 octanes since then.” The ad copy also mentions a rust-free body and a clean title, so there you go.

The asking price is $ 10,000 and it is now up to all of you to judge both the car and the price so that we can determine its fate. What do you think, is this multicolored Mustang worth those kind of scratches with all of its mods? Or, does the tricolor aftermarket paint and shenanigans actually decrease in value?

You decide!
