The car is also equipped with AC, Tilt Wheel, Cruise Control, Bucket Seats, Console and the Light Monitor System, Floor Shifter and Wire Wheel Covers. Obviously this car was ordered with the luxury amenities, so it would have both the inherent sportiness of the Mustang and the creature comforts as well.
’80 Mustang Ghia Coupe
16,000 Actual Miles.., 1-Family Owned.., All Original..!
This is a one-family-owned car with only 16,000 ACTUAL MILES!! It is still factory stock correct, with all original paint. It even has the ORIGINAL TIRES on it yet!! It is essentially as close to "new" as you will probably find anywhere in a 1980 Mustang. It simply runs drives and looks like a new car yet.
This is the Ghia Model with the very rare LEATHER seats. (Not vinyl - real leather.) Out of 271,322 Mustangs sold in 1980, only 23,647 were Ghia Coupes or only about 8%. It also has the Carriage Roof Option ($625) which was also seldom ordered on the Mustang in that era. Another unusual option is the upgraded stereo Amp that has a separate switch mounted under the dash which allows you to turn it on and off separately from the radio when desired.
In addition, to top off the unusual aspects of the vehicle is the fact it was ordered with the 3.3L (200 cid, 94 hp) 6 cylinder rather than the 4.2L V-8. At that time, most of the Mustangs that were ordered with a significant amount of options had the bigger engine which of course didn't get nearly as good of fuel mileage as the 6 cylinder.
This vehicle was sold brand new right here in Sioux Falls, SD at the local Ford Dealer and has been here its entire life. It has been serviced at the same Ford Dealer and always stored inside and only driven in nice weather. It has been extremely well cared for and the only reason it was sold was due to the fact that the owner developed some health problems that prevented him from driving the car anymore. The proceeds derived from the sale of the car was given to a local charity/church organization to help fund a food/clothing program for less privileged people in the local community.
This car would make a perfect addition to a Ford enthusiast's collection. Or, if you were simply looking for a great driving, very comfortable, great fuel mileage vintage Mustang with all of the amenities, that is essentially "new" yet, you couldn't go wrong either. So, whether you are a collector or just want to drive the car, either way this will be a winner for you.
