First generation Ford Probes used to be a common sight. They were based on the Mazda 626 and had then-futuristic looks with the help of some
cheap fancy plastic cladding. Like so many other period cars, poor quality and susceptibility to corrosion turned them into rarities. Find a good GT model today and you will have a solid performer worth checking out. Find this 1989 Ford Probe GT Turbo for sale in Sturgis, MI for $4,750 via craigslist.
The Probe only had an eight year run and the experiment was over. Things like AWD, 4WD and the trusty old RWD layout would emerge to be the domain of Ford performance enthusiasts in years to come. Pick up this Probe, however, and you will own a rare and quick lesson about what the future was supposed to look like in 1989.
