Pitchin’ Mustang: This 1988 Ford Mustang GT Has Some Interesting, If Not Mysterious Road Racing History


Pitchin’ Mustang: This 1988 Ford Mustang GT Has Some Interesting, If Not Mysterious Road Racing History

For the asking price, this seems like one heck of an awesome car. The way that prices are rocking up on Fox platform Mustangs these days, to get one with a 13:1 compression 371ci stroker small block, a cage, and all kinds of fun suspension upgrades is great. The story with this car has our eyebrows up a little just because there are some things in the listing that have us intrigued for sure. The fact that it’s claimed celebrities raced and won in this car, that it has lived its life at Bridgehampton Race Track. Here’s the line that has us interested, “The car has a history of great competitions and wins at the hands of celebrity and well revered race car drivers.”

It would be cool if those drivers, wins, or history were elaborated on just a little. The car was built by Mustang Magic and American Muscle on Long Island and it was built into a racer when basically brand new. There’s no rust, there’s no badness, and many parts of the car like the interior look brand new for sure. This thing is kind of a hardcore Saleen from the era, right?

Check out the photos and then check out the listing. The price is good, the story just seems to be a little on the weird side. This would be a fun Mustang to autocross and road race for sure.

    I suspect some may have different ideas as to what makes a race car . I see no fire suppression system ,the battery has no box and a 4 or 6 point roll hoop [ based on what I can see in the pictures] isn’t going to get the car past time attack or solo events. The tires look like the shit but the camber doesn’t . The hood scoop belongs on a car that races in a straight line. Perhaps a bit of tongue in cheek hyperbole to sell this old horse.

    Doesn’t seem unreasonable whatever the story. I’m 1050 miles away and not in the market but if the car passed the road test and the moonroof passed the car wash test, I’d be in at $8,200. And I really dig the hood graphic.
    . . .or, since it’s less than 200 miles from Boston, let’s send Brian down to get the real story, he’s got a week before he’s gotta be back in Indy.
