Default milleage

I am guessing that the milleage is around 160000, and I will post some pics on here and on facebook for veiwing. the only problem with the body is the rear bumper has cracks from a exhaust hanger breaking

Yeah the T Tops are an interesting bread. Some people love them, others hate them. A good clean fox with relatively low miles (say under 100k) can get 4-6k. You could still get that out of your car, because they didnt make a lot of the t tops, but you will need paint, engine rebuild, etc to make it worth that 4-6k. From what you said, I would guestimate around 3k in its current condition, but pics and mods would really help.

Its a fairly rare car, Im pretty sure they lumped the production numbers with the t-tops in with the convertibles, so getting an actual production number would be really hard. That being said dont except an early retirement if you sell it.

I thought all the 88 t-top cars came with those doors but I could be wrong

1988 Mustang GT

They only made a short run of the T-top cars in early 1988 due to low demand and unresolved leak issues.

the doors are the same. power or manual mirrors make no difference. the only difference is shape, and location on door

heres a t-top with vert mirrors.
