1991 MY Ford Mustang Cobra GT
The third generation Mustang, widely known as the Fox Body Mustang as it was based on Ford’s Fox platform didn’t quite gain the cachet of its predecessors at the time. It was also the first time that a Mustang would be offered as a three-door sedan, or hatchback. While first and second generation Mustangs were lovingly cared for over the years, third-generation Fox Bodies didn’t quite face the same fate. That means, in a pleasant turning of the tide, Fox Body Mustangs are relatively rarer to find, and thus more desirable when in decent state like this. It’s got a few minor things to be attended to and could be the ideal ticket to Fox Body Mustang ownership if that’s your thing. The seller says that the car runs and drives great.
Jack Telnack designed the Fox Body Mustang to reflect the design cues of the Seventies, as well as accommodate the Mustang to fit the Fox Platform that would also underpin vehicles such as the larger Fairmont, and Lincoln Zephyr. Fast forward to 2022, and it’s hard not to see some charm and Seventies quirkiness in his design, which this 1991 Ford Mustang GT proudly proclaims with its recently done metallic black paint job. It wears non-standard five-spoke shiny Saleen alloy wheels wrapped in low profile tires, giving it a sort of resto-mod look. Being a post-1987 car, it has the single piece streamlined headlamps, and also wears a spoiler at the base of the rear hatch. The seller reports that the car has Magnaflow exhaust tips, but you wouldn’t see them, as the exhaust terminates in a downward angle ahead of the rear bumper. The seller also notes that the doors aren’t locking, and there’s an issue with the passenger window not rolling down. If the exterior is restrained, the interior is the exact opposite, in bright red. It’s been recently reupholstered and has seating for four occupants. The driver and front passenger seats feature power lumbar. There’s also air conditioning, but it’s reported that the compressor leaks. A radio is not present, but that’s no bad thing, as you can install your preference, be it retro or uber-modern. Other features include cruise control, power windows and power mirrors.
This 1991 Ford Mustang GT bears the highest displacement engine offered on the Fox Body, the 302ci (4.9L) small block V8 rated at 225hp and 300lb-ft, that drives the rear wheels through an automatic transmission and Positraction rear end.
