ASC / McLaren
One-Owner 1,083 mile ASC/McLaren Convertible 5.0L V8 5spd Manual A/C 1 of 68 ///
The story of this pristine drop-top, 1 of only 68 1988 ASC/McLarens produced in Sterling Silver and Gray, begins with a passionate collector who specializes in long-term investments. While purchasing a Buick Grand National to preserve and someday sell, the collector expressed a bit of concern about the car's 'large' 10,000-unit production run. That's when his friend told him about the ASC/McLaren Mustang. After a little searching, the collector, located in Georgia, found a Tennessee dealership that was willing to deal. And, after being trucked to Atlanta, this Mustang joined his 9-car arsenal in climate-controlled storage. Recently, as ASC/McLarens started gaining prominence, the collector changed his routine of uncovering and idling the car to actually driving the car. Warm receptions at parades and cruise-ins led to two appearances at the Mustang Club of America Grand Nationals, where the car was awarded Gold honors. And today, this 1-owner Ford is offered as an incredible, 1,083-mile time capsule that's 100% original with the exception of its battery, radiator and radiator hoses. Pop the hood and you'll find a venerable 5.0 liter Windsor block that twists a stout 225 horsepower into an even 300 lb./ft. of torque. That hot five-oh funnels grunt to an original Borg Warner T5, which appropriates power to a Ford 8.8-inch axle and mild, 2.73 gears. That drivetrain motivates an aggressive, 1.5-inch lower stance that was engineered by the pros at McLaren. When the time comes to slow down, a familiar combination of power-assisted discs and drums gets the job done efficiently. Naturally, power rack-and-pinion steering is present and accounted for. At the corners, attractive ASC/McLaren alloys spin original 225/60VR15 Goodyear Eagle VR60s. And, between the doors, an ASC-massaged cockpit ensures that no one will think this is a run-of-the-mill Mustang.
