Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
With just 42,897 actual miles in its rear view mirror, this 1993 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 looks and drives great - which should come as no surprise. The rock-solid mechanical components on this sharp looking drop top have not only powered legions of Mustangs over the years but have also served as the foundation for countless aftermarket projects due to their consistent dependability. This 93 closed out the third generation of Mustangs, which had the considerable responsibility of redirecting the model back toward its driver-centric roots. Its a great looking ride - distinct enough to offer the vibe of a classic yet modern enough that its mere appearance confers the promise of some seriously enjoyable driving. The teal paint covering its exterior is still its original and, some 25 years later, presents exceptionally well, showing a nice shine and no glaring blemishes. Take a look from up front and youll notice not only the absence of the normally encountered chips and other mementos from the road, but also how the hood lines up with the fenders to each side - the body alignment on this Ford is actually strong throughout. The contrasting black trim surrounding the cabin, as well as that of the luggage rack on the deck lid, also looks absolutely great, sporting a deep black color to indicate exposure to the elements has been kept to a minimum. For those occasions when the weather puts an end to your open-air driving, theres a power white convertible top standing by neatly folded to raise up to protect you. Inside the doors, the white leather interior looks just vintage enough to set it apart from the present day, but still sports those welcome touches that make for a comfortable driving experience. The seating in both front and remain very sharp and the contoured shape of the buckets provides a nice balance of comfort and support. The carpeting is in good shape, and the addition of a pair of contrasting Mustang floor mats up front is a nice touch. From the center console on up to the dash area, youll likely be impressed with the consistently strong condition inside - theres no sign of abuse anywhere, the white-faced gauges in the cluster look great and function just as intended and the dash pad running across the top is supple and shiny. Having a touch of modernity has its benefits, too - theres a welcome collection of comfort and convenience features on hand, including power door locks and windows, air conditioning, and an AM/FM/CD stereo. The trunk area in back looks as if it has seen no activity at all. This Mustang is powered by a 5.0 H.O. electronically fuel-injected V8 - a powerplant thats well known to both Mustang aficionados and aftermarket modification enthusiasts. Its reputation for anvil-like durability has been thoroughly reinforced over the years, so it holds the promise of plenty of fun-filled future driving as it teams with a 4-speed automatic transmission whose overdrive gear really comes in handy to bring down RPMs at highway speeds. This LX is a strong performer in all respects - it offers smile-inducing acceleration and plenty of agility around corners and its power brakes, featuring discs up front, bring it to prompt stops. It rolls on a set of very sharp aftermarket mag wheels outfitted with Sumitomo tires. With its combination of classic charm and modern conveniences, this 1993 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 is a keeper.
