About “Fox Rod”

I bought this car in October of 04', one owner and bone stock right down the the exhaust and air silencer. It was stock grey two tone titanium before I painted it custom Dupont Gun Metal Grey Pearl. I daily drove it until I bought my 96' GT in 2010 and retired it to the garage and only drove it on nice days sometimes to work and the occasional trip to the track for some fun. I regrettably sold it in April of 2013 after the purchase of my 2000 GT Convertible.

This was my first GT and since it was bone stock when I bought it I had a lot of fun with it and it was the perfect Mustang to cut my teeth on and super fun to drive even with just 225 stock HP. Before the car was sold I had a lot into the engine and the car as a whole. I kept the car exterior stock with the exception of changing out the rear wing because I liked the LX one better, Stock clean Grey interior with nothing but the stock gauges as I can't stand to see a Mustang with over the top ghetto gauges.

I had started to prepare the car for boost via Procharger but after I bought my 2000 GT I started to loose interest in the 87' and then sold it. That's one decision I wish I could take back,

A lot of people have emailed me asking if I could give them the paint code for the Gun Metal Grey. I do have it IF anyone if still interested in using it on their car.
