A performance icon from the '80s that will be a classic
The ONLY problem that I have had is the heater core had to be replaced when the Mustang was 3 years old. This seem to be a design inherent characteristic of all Mustangs.
Excessive horsepower modifications would probably destroy the T5 transmission and require a upgrade to a Tremac 5 speed.
I have had my 1986 Mustang GT since 1988 and it will be part of my estate when I die. The car has been super reliable and becomes better with the additions of aftermarket performance items. The car is super easy to work on and the 302 has never had any problems.
The car runs 13.7 sec in the quarter mile and gets 23 MPG.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
