Greg like many of us, has always had an extreme love for Foxbodies, Not too long ago (and lucky for him) he was dedicated to buying one before the market went all crazy after recent Barrett Jackson auctions and the hype across social media platforms. He began his search and in the summer of 2017 he stumbled across this white 1988 Mustang GT and he opted to go look at it right away. Funny enough I personally remember seeing this car posted on social media by a Dech enthusiast. For Greg he couldn’t stop thinking about it after he viewed the car and he made the right decision by going back and buying it a few days later. Yes Greg, you beat me to it!
Believe it or not this is the first car that Greg has ever owned, and we could all imagine the excitement for him as we all had (and some still do) every time we bring a new Foxbody home. Greg has recently just turned 20, and is in University currently studying automotive engineering, and has been into the cars since he was born as it runs in the family. Being a fellow Canuk, he’s always known about Dech Mustangs, but never thought he would get a chance to own one.
From the outside you would believe that Greg has a typical Mustang GT that has extremely low miles with just under 70,000 km original, sporting all original paint, and it’s virgin 5.0 5 speed. In addition, the car came with the factory upgraded 3.08:1 ratio rear end and is sitting on a beautiful set of Roh ZR6 wheels. But beyond the basics this car has had several very typical Dech upgrades which include:
- DECH Springs
- DECH Koni Adjustable Shocks
- DECH Nylatron Shift Knob
- DECH typical MOMO Monte Carlo Steering Wheel
- Recaro Driver seat
Although not outfitted with the widely noticed Dech Aero Kit, and not uniquely numbered, this car has some of the fundamentals of a ” DECH Street Package” and is a fine example of a well kept, low mileage, rust free Canadian piece of history. Overall plans for the car are a little more suspension work and some engine modifications Greg claims. What a great first car Greg, enjoy it!
