Whoa, Horsey!

Sure, nearly 2.6-million third-generation Ford Mustangs rolled off the factory line between 1979 and 1993 and you've likely seen so many of these Fox bodies over the years that they may seem endless.

How often, however, have you spotted a 225-hp 1991 Mustang GT pumping out 600hp to the rear wheels, all while still maintaining low miles, a somewhat-stock appearance and a fold-back convertible roof?

This brutish Mustang GT roadster offered by seller Matt Printz poses this question, "What if today's high-horsepower muscle-car wars had existed in the early '90s?"

We'll leave the answer to that question in an alternate reality. Meanwhile, we point out that we like how the seller has implemented a 428ci SVO block, which stays true to Ford's high-performance cubic-inch history, as part of a no-expense-spared build using the tastiest aftermarket speed parts available.

The clincher, however, is the price, a non-princely $13K, which we're guessing barely covers the cost of the purpose-built Blue Oval small-block.

If Friends-era Mustangs top your list of cool modes of locomotion, be sure to saddle up on this deal quickly before this Ryno "Car of the Week" gallops off into the sunset.
