1980 2.3 turbo Mustang coupe 4 speed.

79,686 original miles on the body and transmission. Second owner. The car was custom ordered from Ford by the original owner with the options. Technically, it is 1 of 1.

Car is tu-toned Dark Cordovan Metallic (brown) over black and has a red leather Ghia interior. Very clean, very minimal rust on the body. Floors are in great shape. It has an aftermarket air dam on the front of it, looks pretty original to the car but it's not factory. Also has a factory sunroof. Currently has silver ponies on it. Someone installed a side exhaust as well.

Exterior has some minor dents and dings. The only real damage being where the hood must have flown up at some point. The hood is bent in the corner and the cowl is dented. I do have a new cowl cover for it. The only major rust is on the decklid and it's pretty significant.

The interior, besides fading, is in pretty good condition. The dash pad and armrest pad are even in excellent condition. The rear seat has some splitting on the top. The headliner is sagging. It has manual windows and door locks. The drivers seat track was removed because the guy had put a racing seat in it at some point and lost the tracks. Easy fix. No radio. Was a factory radio delete car that at some point had Cerwin Vega speakers installed, although there is no head unit installed and no wiring harness, so someone must have had a radio in it at some point, maybe externally installed?

Runs excellent. Motor and turbo were recently rebuilt. Unfortunately, I don't have any paper work to support this, but I do have pictures of the motor while it was being rebuilt. I haven't driven it except up to the garage, since they are pretty strict here in NJ and I live right near the police station, I didn't want to take it out on the street. It went through all the gears fine and felt pretty good.
