Lot Number
Unrestored Original
Auction House
Chassis No. 1FABP28M4EF173425. Oxford White with red side stripes over red cloth. 302-cid, 175-hp V-8, 5-speed manual. Alloy wheels, Goodyear Eagle GT tires, factory radio, sunroof, fog lights. TRX handling package, books, Marti Report.

Evaluation: Unrestored original | Represented with 4804 actual miles and with its original tires. Looks like a time-warp car with few signs of any wear apparent in the photos. Located in Texas.

Bottom Line: The 1984 Mustang GT350 was available as either a hatchback or convertible. Ford built 5261 examples over a 35-day production run, making it a rare car by Mustang standards. It wasn’t exactly an instant collectible—this 20th anniversary “GT350” happened entirely without Shelby input and came with no performance goodies under the pretty white paint. These are only slightly more desirable than a run-of-the-mill 5.0 Fox-body today, but there’s a certain 121-mile convertible out there that Barrett-Jackson sold for an insane $71,500 four years ago and then again for $35,200 last year. The seller here likely had that car in mind, but a 20 grand high bid is more realistic and perfectly fair.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
