Six 1980s-era Mustangs go up on sale
Bring A Trailer has posted sale ads for as many as six third-gen Ford Mustangs, some of them among the rarest of their kind.
The highlight of the sextet is a 32-yar-old white Saleen Mustang featured in the attached video. The current bid is over $20,000. Saleen has only produced seven hundred such cars, landing each one with chassis tweaks, sports seats and improved aero kits. A five-liter V8 coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox hit the wheels with 292 hp (218 kW), reaching 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in 5.6 seconds and maxing out at 155 mph (250 mph).
The yellow Mustang ASC McLaren is just as old, but it is a soft-top roadster built in 23 total units. Its V8 runs with a four-speed auto gearbox and produces 225 hp (168 kW).
The silver-tinted Mustang SVO has never changed ownership in its 36 years of existence. Its 2.3-liter turbocharged engine links to a five-speed M/T and hits the asphalt with 175 hp (130 kW). The standard sprint is a matter of 7.5 seconds, and the top speed is 215 km/h (133 mph).
Next in the list is a Mustang police car that was chiefly used discreetly for patrolling. It has blinker beacons, a radio station and a police siren, but lacks a conspicuous police livery. Its five-liter V8 has 370 hp (276 kW) at the output end.
Rounding off the list are two Mustang GT ponies released in 1985 and 1989. Both pack V8 and 5-G M/T, and can do 240 km/h (149 mph) in a straight line.
The cars can be purchased separately from each other, and the sale will continue until December 28, 2020.
The third Mustang generation came based on a platform called Ford Fox and offered coupe, convertible and hatchback body types from 1979 until 1993.
