(5 photos of a 1980 Bright Red Mustang Ghia Hatchback) Bright Red 1980 Mustang Ghia hatchback owned by Dwayne McCracken from Washington, Missouri. Dwayne adds, "I bought this Mustang Ghia in 2005. I seen it and I liked the red with all of the chrome on it. When I lifted the hood I knew I wanted it. It was clean and had almost as much chrome on it as the exterior. I just recently found out it was a special 1980 Mustang model. It is a Ghia, a luxury package Ford offered that year. The interior and exterior had been stripped if any evidence of the Ghia model on it. The previous owner had replaced the emblems with Cobra decals and emblems. I found out when I ran the VIN number on Mustang Attitude's, VIN number decoder. I have been trying to replace all of the missing Ghia emblems whenever I can find them. This car came out of the factory with a 255 V8 automatic transmission. I think that was Ford's biggest mistake in 1980. As people bought them, they were disappointed in the lack of power and the poor performance of the 255 engine. Luxury or not the 1980 Ghia was doomed from the beginning. As about everyone who as ever owned this car did, the previous owner had the 255 bored to a 302, When I bought it all of the receipts from everything from emblems to mechanical had been left in the console with the original owners manual. He spent much more on changing it than it was worth at the time. It also came with two boxes of trophies from car shows. I haven't driven it much in the last 5-6 years. It has Historical plates on it and I just recently took an interest in again. It still needs a new paint job but the engine only has 41,000 on it and runs great. Getting it back in shape after letting it sit for so long is a project that will keep me busy for awhile. Since I retired two years ago, I
definitely have the time. I wouldn't consider selling it because I love these older models and Mustangs have always been my favorite cars. This 1980 joins a 1986 GT hatchback and a 2003 GT coupe."
