Default 1987 TType

My car has been family owned since new. It has always been garaged except when it was at the shop waiting for work to be performed. The car is black with grey interior. It is a t-top car, but is exceptionally tight. You have to really pull the door hard to close it due to its being so air tight. Cotton's has done all of the work on the car over the past 12 years. As you caqn see from the list below, there have been a lot of good mods performed on my car. It has run a best of 11.0@120 but with the old CPT65 turbo and it has a new 66 ball bearing turbo on since last season. Ran the car at Musclepalooza at LVD over Memorial Day and with 20lbs, ran 11.4@120 with the new combo! It has never had a roll bar or cage and still has the factory air, converted to 134A several years ago. NO RUST! Asking $14,900.

-In family since new

Is this car still available? I may be in the market for a GN or T-Type, I might be in the process of selling my 07 GT right now

Thanks.

This would be my first GN/T-Type.....not sure what to look for on these cars as far as common rust problems and things like that. You say the paint is so so?

Does this car need anything? Sounds like it's a beast already. Again, not knowing these cars, is the transmission and rear end built to take the power the engine is putting down?

Has this been on a dyno? Any clue on horsepower?

Thanks for the replies everyone else, nice to see that other people are vouching that the car is quality.

Now to sell my mustang!!!

I just noticed that it has a spool rear, how does that effect daily driving? Does it chatter around corners? Not looking for a daily driver but a weekend machine, just curious how it drives around town and highway.

Thanks again....

Hi, it does skip a little around tight corners, but it is built to take it. Tranny and rear end are built to take the power. Don't get me wrong about the paint. It is pretty nice, but is all original. Looks great from 10 feet. Are you in the Northeast?

Yeah I am in Rocky Hill, CT....probably not too far from you. I should come by and check out the car. I see your in MA. Still trying to work out a selling price on my mustang but have come to a stand still in the negotiations. Hope to have my money in my pocket soon.

Any idea on horsepower and possible ET's at the strip with the new turbo?

Thanks.
