The iconic Fox Body Mustang makes an appearance on our site today all the way from Nebraska wearing red over red interior. Appropriate colors for Nebraska. Wait, Nebraska? Oh yes, this would be a good time to digress.
In the pantheon of quotes about Nebraska (of which I only know one, and yes you are about to hear it) this is by far the best. Don’t ask how I know that fact. But before I plant it on you, a little backstory. In 1992, Clint Eastwood starred in and directed the hit movie Unforgiven. My favorite Nebraska quote comes from a scene in the film in which Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman), a crooked-ish sheriff, was talking smack with newly arrived arch-nemesis and villain English Bob. The dialogue went like this:
Little Bill: It’s been a long time Bob. You run out of Chinamen [to shoot for the railroad companies]?
English Bob: Little Bill! Well, I thought you was – Well I thought that you were dead. I see you’ve shaved your chin whiskers off.
Little Bill: I was tasting the soup two hours after I ate it.
English Bob: Well, actually, what I heard was that you fell off your horse – drunk of course – and that you broke your bloody neck.
Little Bill: I heard that one myself, Bob. Hell, I even thought I was dead ’til I found out it was just that I was in Nebraska.
There you have it: Nebraska. I hope Nebraskans can take a joke. Sorry if you can’t. But I can totally relate: I felt exactly the same when I lived in Minnesota. Which is a little like Nebraska but the state color isn’t red, it’s greige. That’s a combination of grey and beige which is what it looks like outdoors most of the year. Sky: grey, Land: beige. But this isn’t about me, this is about a fine automobile landlocked on the prairie just waiting for you to rescue it.
A very clean example of the late 1980’s early 1990’s Foxy Ford pony car with a miniscule 65,914 miles on the odo, this car is said to have never seen snow and has no rust at all. The photos show a car as clean as a whistle inside and out and is the hatchback variant of the model.
Sporting a manual transmission and stock everything (except interestingly enough the LX tail lights), this clean-titled, accident free lovely is a keeper that can be rolled as a daily or be a garage queen to be escorted about town. The seller calls it a 9/10 and the photos do show a vehicle in superb condition. Apparently there are more to be viewed at the buyer’s request.
So what more do you want in a turn of the decade (80’s – 90’s) muscle car? It’s analog: you got your rear-wheel drive, your 5.0 liter (ahem, 302) V-8 engine putting down 225 HP, and manual transmission. I can’t really think of anything else you would need except maybe a mix tape with Aerosmith’s Love In An Elevatorin the tape deck to complete the ensemble.
This accident free example can be had for the asking price of $17,500. Click HERE to see more photos
