For sale is very unique Mustang GT by the original owner (see the AutoCheck score and History).    This car absolutely must be seen/inspected to be appreciated.   Purchased new in 1988 this Fox body has been meticulously loved and heavily modified by a Ford Performance Chassis engineer who has been doing high performance chassis engineering at Ford for the past 3 decades.   She has never seen snow or salt and has never been in an accident.   97K miles of summer only. garage kept driving.   Vehicle has been configured to “do it all”…. You can literally drive it daily during the week and lay down the best lap times at your weekend club track events.   While it is extremely capable and easy to drive on any road course. it is also a comfortable ride to work or even a cross-country air conditioned drive.   It has been extremely reliable and was always driven to and from track events (not a trailer queen ;-).  This vehicle is the product of 29 years of engineering exercises and powertrain/chassis development and optimization.   It is not a hodge-podge build of cheap aftermarket parts.   Many of the components are hand-made. dyno tested for optimized performance.   Some specifics are:
