Nathan had this story to share, "My Dad factory ordered his 1989 Mustang GT hatchback in the fall of 1988. It was the car I grew up in and I still want a mustang just like it. In 1996 my Brother was born and we traded it in for an Explorer. After going to a car show in 2004, we became very interested in finding out what happened to it. We did a VIN search, but we never managed to track down the last owner until 2010. He said a semi came over on it and it had been sold to the local junkyard. The yard owner didn't remember it and said he had crushed thousands of cars recently. We went there and found several wrecked Mustangs but couldn't find his."

(6 photos of a 1989 Oxford White Mustang GT Fastback) Oxford White 1989 Mustang GT fastback owned by Josh Colby from Manchester, New Hampshire. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting June 30, 2013. Josh tells us more, "I obtained this beautiful Mustang last year around September. I have currently invested a good amount on preventative maintenance and other needed areas. If I had a choice and I really don't, I would not sell it. The previous owner 'said' that the motor and trans were rebuilt. How rebuilt, I do not know but she idl's flawlessly and doesn't have any issues shifting. The chassis has 184k miles on it and has a bit of rust under door areas and under the trunk and that is it. NO rust No rot! The motor was rebuilt about 15-25k miles ago.
The car is not a show car but is very clean looking and has minimal daily driving looks. She is parked every winter and is maintained. The only reason I am selling or TRADING is for a 4X4 pick up, extended cab 5.0L+. So I can have a yearly driver that I can use. Sad to say the truck I was
using has been.... taken away. So I am kind of in need something. The car starts daily in all weather types and even when she is parked and hasn't started for 3 days in 20 degree weather. It has been very reliable. If you have any questions please feel free to email at the email address listed. Remember, she is not a show car. I am either looking for a truck in decent to equal condition trade or a local cash sale. FUN STUFF: Mach 1 style vented hood, Typhoon intake manifold 'upper & lower', new detent cable for transmission, tranny flush, power steering flush, BBK CAI, BBK shorty headers, under drive pulleys, smog delete, aftermarket catless pipe to a custom side pipe exhaust, rebuilt transmission, rebuilt motor 'no receipt, PO says so, gaskets look new and it purs just fine', Cobra tail lights,
Performance automatic street/strip shift kit, front caster/camber, upper strut plates, KYB Shocks, battery power master, 140W alternator with smaller pulley, chassis stiffening bars, rear pan hard bars, new ball joint, new 190 degree Thermostat, distributor cap, 8mm wires, PVC, new heater core, Yukon Dura grip posi with 31 spline axle set up, side mounted oil pressure gauge and water temp gauge with fuel gauge 'fuel not hooked up', and a bunch of little things all around. NEEDS: rear main seal if you don't want a small oil leak, windshield cracked $195, fuel gauge connected

Scott (previous owner) told us, "I traded an '80 Mustang hatchback (also featured on this site) for it in September of 2019. It has has a lot of restoration work done to it by the previous owner. It was originally Scarlet Red, but was repainted Cabernet Red and the lower body painted Titanium Silver. This was done to mimic the GTs of the era. The previous owner removed the luggage rack and third brake light for a cleaner look. He also added the chrome Cobra wheels and changed the seats from red cloth to white vinyl. Since I've had the car, I've made additional mechanical repairs and cosmetic upgrades. It's a very clean, sharp looking car that turns heads."
