We love a good hero classic, and that's why it's tough to beat this 1979 Ford Mustang Ghia Fastback. After all, this was the first year for the Fox Body cars, and these were really credited with restoring the image of a powerful pony car. So it's nice to have distinctive/premium Ghia trim and a proper 5.0-liter V8 under the hood.
Medium Blue Glow is a great color to have when presenting a Mustang of distinction. It was only available for a few years and wasn't as popular as colors like red. So you're going to have people take notice. That's why it's nice to have this resprayed later in life. We're not talking about a finish that's too fancy to enjoy, because after all, a good pony car is all about being a fun driver. But this paint makes sure the gloss really shows off the classic curves of the profile. And there is an overall quality look to this car with the bright/clean classic alloys, exceptionally clean black trim encircling the waistline, and a crisp look to the four-headlight front end that is a hallmark of these early Fox Body cars. Plus, the large hood scoop and bright exhaust tips hint at how this premium Ghia also has proper V8 power.
This really earns its Ghia trim name because the blue interior against the blue paint gives this very American Mustang a touch of European flair. The impression inside is about being highly stock and exceptionally preserved. This also has a premium feel with the comfy velour upholstery, an armrest center console, plush carpeting, and smooth wood-like trim. You'll even appreciate the little classic details, like the working dome light, early steering wheel, and AM/FM sterol with 8-track. This was even a factory air conditioning car. The controls are there if you'd like to restore the function, but the components were taken out because the motor is currently focused a bit more on giving you better power.
Under the hood is an ultra-clean and tidy setup that really goes with this car's overall feeling of exceptional care. And this is the kind of powerhouse that really makes this a great way to celebrate the 3rd gen Mustang. It was the car that was seen as a return to the power ponies of before, and doing right by the 302ci/5.0-liter motor was the key. So while this one was optioned from the start with the desirable V8, the powerhouse under the hood now also benefits from an upgraded Edelbrock intake and a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It's not out to be a blacktop burner, and instead, it keeps a nice tone from the newer exhaust. But this Ghia has a nice feeling on the road, and it also is an easy cruiser with power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
The sale comes complete with a Marti Report, owner's manual, title documentation, and maintenance records. This is the first-year Fox Body Mustang with a terrific sense of classic style. So don't miss this premium V8 Ghia fastback. Call today!!!
