Welcome to a rather late Hooniverse Weekend. Sorry, but it is the holiday season, and I have been flat out during the week, and had a very late party on Friday… Yea, I know… I should at least be able to do some writing even with a hangover…
Anyway, the theme for the weekend is “Low Mileage” (yes, again) where I find really low mileage older cars that are not restored, but still somewhat desirable. Let’s start out with this very special 1987 Mustang 5.0L 2-Door coupe, showing only 7,314 miles.
According to the listing:
In the years I have been enjoying bringing the finest fox body mustangs to everyone, this automobile is without question the rarest I have ever been proud to own. This mustang was ordered specifically for an officer of the massachusetts strikeforce division. It is literally one of one in this condition with this mileage. The car came out of his private collection. It is an unmarked car and in phenomenal condition. It is 100% ORIGINAL. Let me begin by saying this was ordered as a no option vehicle. No power windows, door locks, or a/c. It does have all the additional equipment you would expect from a police interceptor. Full size spare, one key entry, 140 speedo, reinforced seats, heavy duty alternator, silicone hoses, sound absorber, underhood deleted, front floor pan reinforced, single key locking system, and decklid release, relocated right of steering column. Everything functions as it should. The interior is spotless and still retains the classic ford new car smell. All gatorbacks are original from 87 and are not dry rotted or flat spotted. The powder coated ten holes are all completely original and immaculate.
Now for the really good stuff. This car was NOT undercoated from the factory. Wheel wells are factory smooth and the under carriage is dry and clean. All markings and stickers are still visible from when it left the plant. The quarter window rubber rubber shows no sign of age. The engine bay is beautiful and completely original. The dated spark plug wires are still present as well as all markings from the factory. The paint is 100% Ford factory original and shines as new. Every vin tag is present on every panel. Mechanically the car is spot on. No leaks, oil pressure is up, all fluids have been changed and she runs as new. Full documentation is included with the car, including the window sticker, bill of sale and ford police vehicle brochure, explaining the options in a 1987 ssp mustang. Quite honestly, it does not get any better. Not only are you getting a 7k mile unmolested coupe, it happens to be black, a 5spd, all delete, no undercoating, full documentation, window sticker, oh and did I mention it is a police car. This is truly a special vehicle.
With over five days to go until the auction ends, the top bid so far is $10,100 with an unmet reserve. It is a fantastic piece of Mustang history, but is it desirable enough for you to bid on it. Go here to see the listing: 1987 Ford Mustang Police Coupe
