5.0L HO V8
Still wearing its original colors both inside and out, this 1990 Ford Mustang LX Convertible comes along just in time for the warmer weather that\'s right around the bend. It\'s been treated with plenty of respect over the years and comes complete with a clean AutoCheck to confirm its avoidance of any immovable objects. The powerplant propelling this classic droptop is very likely original and hails from a class of engines known for their longevity, so this Ford is well positioned to provide many future miles of open air driving enjoyment.
Just a few years before this \'90 debuted, Mustangs received a thorough restyling, getting many of their exterior cues from Ford\'s own SVO line to equip them with a noticeably more sporty and aerodynamic appearance than their predecessors. Take a lap around the car and you\'ll find no dings or blemishes on its exterior to diminish your enthusiasm and, having received a recent freshening up at the paint booth, it\'s looking particularly sharp and shiny while still draped in the same color it began life with. The factory color-matched trim is also in good shape and the body alignment is very strong - the bumpers in both front and back merge directly with the side trim and you can see just how smoothly everything blends. The black convertible top is in great shape, showing no tears and sporting a nice clear window in back for enhanced visibility, so by any measure this is one vital looking \'90s ride right here.
The accompanying gray cloth interior provides a nice, comfortable vintage driving environment and is in fresh overall condition - there are a few odds and ends to tend to in order to bring out its best, but make no mistake, this Mustang is very much good to go as it currently stands. The pair of front buckets feature tweed accents that still appear pretty much as they did when the car was new as they sit over an expanse of matching carpeting and you won\'t find much evidence of UV exposure anywhere inside the cabin - always a welcome sight in a classic droptop still wearing its original interior components like this one. By this era, air conditioning had become a more common feature in convertibles and the one on board here is running strong. The factory AM/FM/Cassette stereo still holds it place in the center of the dash, but will need a little attention to get it back online, although you could also use the opportunity to replace it with a more modern audio option.
The class of fuel injected 5.0 liter V8 that propels this Mustang has garnered quite a reputation over the years for its anvil-like durability. Over the decades, 5.0s have not only powered countless Fords but have also served as the foundation for legions of aftermarket projects and this one, benefitting from a more modern fuel injection system that\'s far more adaptable to modification than its predecessor, is particularly appealing. The engine teams with a 4-speed automatic transmission whose overdrive gear offers engine-sparing RPMs at highway speeds. Once the Fox bodied Mustangs made their entrance - this \'90 is a proud member - Ford had also ditched the leaf spring design of previous generations, replacing it with coils in back for a smoother, quieter ride. Power steering and power brakes with discs up front make for easy navigation and low-effort stops, while the added Flowmaster exhaust sends a nice, deep but understated note out of the tailpipes.
Running strong and looking sharp, this 1990 Ford Mustang LX Convertible has come through the decades in strong fashion and stands ready to provide plenty more driving fun. Call today!
