$42,000 For A Coyote-Swap T-Top Coupe?

Until a few years ago, the Fox Mustang T-Top coupe was a bit of a unicorn. Some people had heard they existed, but few had actually saw one in person. According to Marti Auto Works, only 6,009 T-Top Coupes were ever built between 1981 and 1986, making them one of the more rare Foxes in the wild.

In recent years however, several high-end builds and project cars have showed up in magazines and on the Internet and have helped boost the popularity of the T-Top coupe.  With this popularity, more coupes have emerged from the shadows, but they are still some of the Holy Grail Foxes.

You have probably seen this black, 1984 Ford Mustang T-Top Coupe before, as it’s been featured in a couple of magazines and and won awards at numerous major car shows around the country. It features a modern Coyote 5.0 liter engine as well as some simple, well-thought-out upgrades making this one of the cleanest Fox T-top coupes we have ever laid eyes on.

Featuring a Ford Performance Coyote crate motor backed up by a 4R70W automatic transmission, this 1984 T-Top Coupe has the drivetrain to take you any where you want to go with both reliability and speed.

Even with the over-the-top Coyote swap, the car still features a simple, four-lug wheel, basically stock interior except for some upgraded seats and all the original body lines and panels. The result is a clean appearance that makes you take a second look to notice an impressive street machine!

The interior in this car is clean and simple. With all new weatherstripping and fresh black paint on all the trim panels, it looks just like it did when the car rolled off the showroom floor. We can tell you from personal experience these Corbeau GTS II front seats are some of the most comfortable on the market.

The owner did state that he does not need to sell the car and that it will not leave his garage for less than the asking price.

He was looking to get $42,000 for the car as shown in the listing, which ended. It’s up to you to determine if that is a fair price or not, but we can tell you this is a lot of car here for the money. You would be hard pressed to find a solid T-top coupe body and build it to this level for less.

In a seemingly five-lug world, this owner decided to stick with the conventional four-lug bolt pattern. Behind these chrome SVE wheels is enough brake to stop this Fox on a dime.

About the author

Jeff Southard

Growing up with a dad who loved Corvettes, I was destined to be a gearhead from day one. Beyond that, my dad owned an auto parts business for over 25 years. There, I learned the automotive basics as a child, then began my professional career working there after high school. From Corvettes and Superbirds to Hemis and Cobra Jets, my dad has owned a little of everything over the years, so I've had my chance to get some quality seat time behind the wheel of some rare, unique, and sometimes, just odd automobiles. I have owned my share of toys, including over 20 Mustangs. I guess to make a long story short, if you look up "car crazy" you will probably find my photo listed pretty close to it!
