I bought this 88 GT from the original owners son after the owner passed away in his 80's. Not only did I buy it from his son, his son is a friend of mine so I now the car. The biggest problem with the car is that it sat for over 5 years in a not very well ventilated garage after his dad got to old and ill to take it for a drive.
The motor was locked up when I got it home, after pulling it, it appeared that the motor had a slight head gasket leak and antifreeze sat all that time in #5 cylinder. It ate the cylinder wall up and wasted the block. I bought another motor from a friend that came from another 88 GT, rebuilt it and put it in stock. Engine is back in and running, interior in the car is very nice, plan to replace the headliner, installing all new weather seals, new headlights, new LED Tail Lights, 93 Polished Cobra Replica Wheels, new brakes, new shocks and struts, an much more to make it a nice weekend driver.
