No, but that doesn't mean someone didn't fab their own from a wrecked 88.

I don't doubt it was real. Ford may have produced several of them if they had the tops left over and just not advertised it as an option. They have been known to do things like that.

Quite possibly, if he can find the car's original build sheet or use the VIN to prove it came from the factory that way.

Re: 89 t top... real?

Was most likely just a left over 88. As far as collectible though, yes its neat and wasnt made for long in the 87+ styling but the one being sold for 60k is just plain retarded. These cars aint no gt500 or boss 429's so a fox selling for 60k I just cant see someone with a brain paying that.

Ive always loved the ttop cars and really would like to have a79-86 style ttop coupes.

Good luck on getting it, 5k seems fairly reasonable depending on what has/hasnt been done to it if it clean with a decent amount of miles on it. But I wouldnt expect to beable to hold on to it an get 60k or anywhere around it like the other idiot was asking.
