Best Color Combo? 1989 Ford Mustang ASC McLaren

Another day, another ASC McLaren Mustang. Just a few days ago, we posted one of the last ASCs made, which stand out for their decidedly import-like Enkei wheels. I honestly haven’t seen a late-production ASC McLaren in quite some time, as most of the cars that come up for sale are the older models. Well, not today, as we have another later convertible up for grabs here on eBay. It’s not the final year model, but it is an ’89  with the unique wheels and a nicely restored interior. Bidding is currently at $12,000 with the reserve unmet.

As we talked about in the last post, the later cars also got these nicely blacked-out taillights and the steeply raked windshield, along with wheels that looked like they belonged on a Honda Civic from the same period. The seller’s car is one of the higher mileage examples we’ve seen with over 64,000 miles on the clock. I like collector cars at this stage, as they’re generally more affordable but the mileage is also still quite low for something of this vintage. The red paint is accented by a camel-colored top and interior, and the cosmetics generally look quite strong. The seller notes the top is in perfect condition and that the pull-down motor still works well.

The seller says he installed “new seats”, which would seem hard to do as these were Recaro buckets made for the ASC. I could be wrong, but I’m guessing he means to say he had the original buckets re-covered with new upholstery. Either way, it looks great, and the seller indicates the next owner is going to love that new leather smell (no vinyl here). The door panels also look tidy and in general, despite the miles, this ASC appears to be nicely preserved. Like most of these cars, it has an automatic transmission, and the seller claims it shifts perfectly and goes into overdrive as it should.

The seller seems quite confident this is one of the best ASCs left in this color combination. I don’t have any problem with this claim, as plenty of collector cars without delivery miles only can present as-new. And given how many ASC owners treated these limited-production Mustangs like real-deal collectibles, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a car with over 60,000 miles still look like it’s in mind condition. All that said, values haven’t increased all that much, so I hope the seller has his reserve set around $15,000 if he wants to see this ASC McLaren find a new home.
