The '96 GT you see here is Gordon Berry's first Mustang, which he found through a local newspaper ad. It was a one-owner, all-original car in great shape.
Since purchasing the car, Gordon has installed a Flowmaster exhaust and a K&N air filter. This Mustang is an uncommon GT, as it is equipped with the 248a option package. The package is closely related to the one-year-only Mustang GTS option of the '95 model.
Cars with the 248a option come with an optional radio, A/C, and other amenities that are standard on the GT. All 248a cars have a spoiler-delete and no foglamps and--aside from the GT badge on the side and the dual exhaust--resemble the V-6 Mustang. Gordon plans to keep the car mostly stock with the exception of a performance H-pipe to go with his Flowmasters and possibly 17-inch Bullitt-style rims.
