Unfortunately, I have the car up for sale locally on Auto Trader and Craig’s List. My wife and I are looking to buy a house and are going to use a portion of the sale money for a down payment. I also own a 1984 Mustang
SVO with under 82,000 original that is being stored at my parents house in Arizona. If I didn’t have the SVO, I wouldn’t even think about selling the ‘88 GT. I am planning on bringing the SVO to Texas
when I have a garage for storage. My wife says that one Mustang at a time is enough (for now).
Please let me know if anyone in your circles has any interest in purchasing this car. I am asking $11,000, but willing to negotiate with right buyer, especially a Ford/Mustang enthusiast that will provide a good home for the car. I can provide pictures or any other information. I can be reached by phone at 940-735-1945 or e-mail at email@example.com
The car is in remarkable condition, even though it has not been garage kept since purchasing the car in 2003. However, I have kept the car covered religiously since taking ownership.
