Remember when you bought your first car and you decided you'd keep all the records? Then, after a few years you kind of stopped doing that, right? Well, this impeccably maintained and documented 1998 Mustang GT has a perfect paper trail right back to the dealer and including a log book of maintenance that even documents every time he put gas in it! There might be others with lower mileage, but none that have been so scrupulously maintained. Ford kept the Mustang true to its original mission with great V8 performance, rear-wheel-drive, and a reasonable price, and in 1998, it combined a smooth and responsive 4.6 liter overhead-cam V8 with styling that paid tribute to the original while taking it in a thoroughly modern direction. Of course, if you're a Mustang fan, I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, but it's important to have some background on this Laser Red pony because it was the culmination of one man's dream car. He bought it new, meticulously maintained it, and today it's virtually showroom-new in every way despite showing just over 28,000 original miles. The paint sparkles, the are barely any marks on it, and the attention that has been lavished on this car is tangible in every panel. Visually, the only deviation from pure showroom stock is a light tint on the windows, which only improves its already handsome looks. Mustangs moved upscale inside, where supportive leather buckets were finally on the roster. Showing only the most minor signs of use, the interior looks only a few months old, not fifteen years, with excellent carpets and not even so much as a depression on the window sill where one might rest one's elbow while cruising. Options include A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt wheel, cruise control, and an AM/FM /CD stereo that still sounds good in today's age of over-powered audio systems. And unlike so many Mustangs, it is completely stock, right down to the original knob on the 5-speed, and it all works as it should thanks to exceptional maintenance. Even the trunk is spotless with the original space-saver spare looking unused and stowed under the floor. Ford's 4.6 liter overhead-cam V8 took a while to grow on enthusiasts, but hey, the 5.0 was a tough act to follow. By 1998, it was making 5.0-beating horsepower and delivered superior fuel economy and lighter weight so handling was sharper. Paired with the 5-speed transmission, it was a sparkling performer that thrived at high RPM and never seems to run out of breath. And with perhaps the biggest aftermarket parts supply in the universe, it's downright shocking to see this one is bone stock, right down to the air filter. In fact, the only non-factory pieces are the 4.10 gears out back, which were dealer-installed and really make the 4.6 sing. A glance underneath suggests that it even still carries its original exhaust system-this might be the only Mustang in the world without Flowmasters! Even the 17-inch alloys are unmarked and wear 245/45/17 Goodyear radials that are only the second set of tires this car has ever worn. Documented with original purchase documents, receipts, manuals, and window sticker, this is as close as you're going to get to a new modular Mustang. Call today!
