Not Many Left: Claimed 66K-Mile 1993 Ford Probe GT
This 1993 Ford Probe GT is said to have a modest 66k miles, cold-blowing A/C, a clean title, smog cert and “no issues.” These Mazda MX-6-based second-gen Probes were sold from 1993-’97, and have been hard to find in any condition for many years. This one looks to be in nice driver level condition throughout, and with an eager 24V four-cam 2.5 liter V6, 5-speed manual and nicely balanced handling, it should be a lot of fun if as good as claimed. Find it here on Craigslist in San Diego, California for $3,900. Special thanks to BaT reader Steve E. for this submission.
The car looks to be all stock including including the wheels, GT-specific fascias and neat GT graphics on the rocker panels. This color only emphasizes the super-90’s styling, but dated or not we’ve always liked the way these second-gen Probes look going down the road.
Many of the provided photos are a bit awkwardly angled, so this period black and white press kit photo of the rear will have to suffice. It doesn’t come across in photos all that much, but in person and from certain angles, these cars show some resemblance to the Ferrari 456GT of the same era.
Blue on blue velour is definitely a look, but materials look to be holding up pretty well apart from some not-unexpected wear on the driver’s outer bolsters. A closeup of the odometer shows a hair under 67k miles.
And a sticker in the engine compartment claims that a replacement Continental timing belt was fitted at around 62k. These 2.5 liter Mazda mills rev smoothly and eagerly, but with modest torque and just 165 HP they were never quick even by standards of the day. Handling was reportedly very nice however, and these cars received a lot of good press back in the day–unfortunately it never really translated into big sales, which is why we’re pleased to see at least one has survived in what seems to be nice shape.
