try going to or haleys in manchester tenn they offer only ford parts. have seen several mustangs there. the phone number is 931-728-1043


really, personnelly I never seen one. I believe you have something


I thought T-tops were last made in 1987 !! You might have a late '87 , or the car is really an '87 . Ford had allot of problems with th T-tops , and so decided to discontinue them after 1987 . Noise , leaking , and premature wear of weather stripping ( falling apart and riping ) were some of the problems attributed to T-tops .

actually the last t top was made in 89 1 was special made for someone


I have an 88 GT with T-Tops Mfg. Date of Nov.87 and I wrote to FOMOCO. 3 yrs. Ago and they informed me that there were 3200 made in 1987 and in fact IS the last yr. They were manufactured in the mustang. The title lists it as an 88 because of the date of Mfg. BTW, It has 136,456 actual miles on it.

1987 was the last year -I got one of the last ones. I picked the car up in September when the '88's were already out. I would have gotten an '88 but they weren't being offered with T-Tops.

I ordered an 88 with T-tops in July 87. Was built early September and I took delivery on October 21, 1987, the Wednesday after Black Monday. It has about 139,000 actual miles on it. Almost totally stock. The only change was adding a 140 MPH speedometer at 23K.

there was 2500 produced and what parts are you needing for the car

I have a 88 gt t top car in the second owner of it and it has some funny mirrors on it

it has funny mirrors on it because at the end of the year they ran out of doors so they put the convertible doors on it i have2- 88 t-top 5.0 with convertible side mirrors on it because that's all they had at the end of the year I've only seen four my whole life and I have two of them my friend had another one..and a88 convertible 5 speed 5.0.and a 87 5 speed with 50,000 miles original moon roof blew offthe moon roof blew off need to fix that

I have one with the flag style mirrors, with 14,432 original miles. It was built on 11-10-1987, but the title is an 88 model. My Marti Report says that for the 1988 Mustang GT 2-door Hatchback, there were 3,747 built with the T-Roof. Bubba

I just bought a two tone red and grey 88 T-top with the convertible doors and funny looking flag mirrors the passenger side door needs the skin replaced

this is 88 mustang

My dad bought this T-top mustang new in 1988. He put it in a garage for all most 15 years. It only has 55,000 miles in it. My son and I are having it painted and replacing the trims. The interior is perfect.
