88 mustang t-top production?

Have a chance to buy a 88 ttop I was wondering if these are rare or pretty common just not desired? I can get a deal on it but want to know some info on them. Thanks in advance.

Not too many T-top cars of any year really. Is it a 5.0L?
I could be wrong but I thought T-tops stopped in 87. TH or someone else might know more about it.

It's a gt hatch with the t5. Nice car and was just curious. I think I'm going to jump on it. I have had a number of foxes coupes, hatches, and verts, but no t top. Thanks for the link. I'm going to meet up with the guy tomorrow and I will take and post some pics. The only thing I don't like about it is the dang porno red int. blah!

My first mustang was a 83 GT with t-tops. Loved that car! Make sure to look at the t-top seals. They have a tendency to leak.

It's been sitting a while and the tops look good and no sign of leaking in the int.

Yea apparently it starts and runs but the tranny is shot. I know I can find a t5 all day on CL. It's in over all good shape and I can pick it up for $600. I can't see where I can go wrong. I'm going to jump if off and see if it makes music before I buy.

That's a heck of a deal on a 5.0, especially one that runs.

Re: 88 mustang t-top production?

thats a great deal for that car, and yes not so many t-top mustangs. those cars started life as coups and ford had the roofs cut to add the t-top option. I actually have a whole mustang book of those with pics, kind of a crude process of producing them pretty neat seeing pictures of them just sawing off the roofs.

Well this thread just sealed the deal with me. I bought a vert for 500 one time and made a bit of change off it. But I may end up keeping this one.

Yea I absolutely love the fox mustangs. I've owned and sold a lot of them so I am super excited to pick this thing up. I believe I'm going to hold on to this one. My wife won't be too happy though. Lol. I already have four mustangs so another won't hurt. People think I have an obsession... Nah
