Mustang GT
The 1987 Mustang GT design benefited from the new flush mounted headlamps, front fascia, a return of bodyside skirts, and smooth rear quarter windows which extend over the previous year's fixed louvers. Only two engines were available for the 1987 Mustang: a 90hp 2.3L inline-4-cylinder for the standard Mustang LX, and a 225hp 5.0L V8 for the Mustang GT. Popular 1987 options include t-tops and the new turbine wheels. The Mustang GT finally received it's own model number in 1987. The GT model can now be easily identified in the Vehicle Identification Number by a P42 for the hatchback or a P45 for the convertible.

Silver 1987 Mustang GT hatchback owned by Rob Falcone. This Mustang has the 302ci 5.0L V8 and a manual transmission. Rob tells us more, "I went for a ride in this car eight years ago and really enjoyed the ride. Every summer I would always ask the previous owner, 'When are you going to bring out the Mustang again?' Never saw the car again. Last year he came up to me and told me he was selling the car. I couldn't get to the bank fast enough. He had the car just under eight years and put less than 400 miles on it. Last summer I put 1600 miles on the car. Truly awesome and enjoying it."
