In August 1986, the Mustang received a full facelift for the 1987 model year on both the interior and exterior. The front end was restyled to look more like the SVO which gave the car more of an "Aero" look, in keeping with Ford's overall modern styling direction. The interior received an all new dash, center console and revised seat and door trim. Available models were now pared down to LX and GT, where you could still get a convertible like this car selling today. This GT wears specific body-colored triple louvered taillight lenses. The quarter glass windows lost their louvers and now sported a single larger flush piece of glass lettered with "Mustang" at the bottom rear corners. This fine GT features new round fog lamps, aerodynamic lower bodyside skirting, and new turbine style painted 15-inch wheels.

Inside, the cool two-tone door panels match the paint and the white leather bucket seats perfectly, with clean carpets and a lovely correct presentation throughout. The clean console shifter, along with power steering, power windows, and power brakes ensure a safe and comfortable ride. You'll enjoy the factory air-conditioning and cool AM/FM cassette while cruising with your friends. The exterior of this fine Mustang looks like new, with straight body panels, clean cladding and bumpers, and that jaunty rear luggage rack out back. The wraparound rear lamps are like new, the top is in excellent shape, and the car has obviously been well cared for since new. The paint finish remains in excellent condition, and there are no visible flaws in the clean white soft top.

These Fox-bodied Mustangs offer real muscle car performance in an affordable package, so finding one as clean as the example here in Corpus Christi is a fine opportunity to add a well-known marque to your collection.
