Classic Car Overview
1990 Ford Mustang LX V8 Convertible $11,995
White paint always looks great on a Mustang, and the LX wears it particularly well with that black beltline trim. We believe thats factory-applied paint, and in 1990, white was one of the few colors in the Ford catalog that didnt use a clearcoat, so the finish shines up beautifully even though there are a few touchups here and there. All the body panels are OEM, too, and you can see from the condition of things like the front bumper and rocker panels that someone has taken really good care of this little white pony. It has also avoided the all-too-frequent addition of aftermarket body panels, because theres not even so much as a rear spoiler wrecking this ones factory originality. Details like the black rub strip, window sills, and the ubiquitous luggage rack designed to integrate the third brake light, are all in very good condition, with none of the chalky fading that indicates a car that has been baking in the sun. The headlights might be a little cloudy, but thats a very small demerit on a car thats lived a good life.
The gray leather interior is equally nice, and offers a soft contrast with the white paint job. The Mustangs buckets are every bit as comfortable as they look, and offer power lumbar support and adjustable thigh bolsters, making the Mustang a custom fit. The seat covers are newer replacement pieces that dont quite replicate the originals, but they do look good and its nice to see they finished the rear seat to match. Gray carpets tie it all together, along with a matching dash and console, which has a neat cup holder assembly that slides into the original ashtray. All the gauges are fully operational, and details like the side mirrors, cruise control, and power window switches still look great, not cracked and broken. Heck, the leather steering wheel looks barely used and the door panels dont even have dents where someones elbow might have rested. The black power top fits well and powers down into its well, where its covered by a tidy gray boot. The fully lined trunk offers correct mouse fur upholstery and a space-saver spare tucked underneath.
Fords venerable 5.0 was the most popular performance engine of the 80s and early 90s for good reason: out of the box it was scary fast, and for not a lot of cash, you could build yourself one heck of a hot rod. With go-fast parts so readily available, finding an unmodified 5.0 is rare. Nevertheless, this one is not only 100% stock, but beautifully preserved with a tidy engine bay thats only a deep cleaning away from factory fresh. The rubber components are supple, the distributor still wears its protective hat, and even the worthless engine lift brackets on the headers are still in place. The lone upgrade is a switch to R134a refrigerant in the A/C system, but thats just being smart. Underneath, its obvious that this was a warm weather car and the freshly rebuilt AOD 4-speed automatic transmission makes it a blast to just stomp and steer. Heck, even the mufflers appear to be original! Externally, the factory 15-inch alloys are in good shape and wear 215/65/15 blackwall radials.
Go ahead, try to find a nicer stock 5.0 Mustang for less cash. Or do the easy thing and give us a call today!
