4.6 SOHC V8
This 1996 Ford Mustang GT Convertible shows the exact reason why young classics are awesome. It has an upgraded look inside and out, and there\'s even upgraded V8 power under the hood. But what this never loses along the way is the feeling of a solid new-era classic that delivers all the best features you would even want in a brand-new car.
The glossy Rio Red paint sets the tone right for this convertible. It\'s a quality respray of the factory color that happened later in life, and it represents the tasteful investments in this car. There\'s some extra flair up front with the shining billet grille and clear headlights. And the racing-style hash marks on the fenders give it some sporty style while also coordinating with the white folding top. The performance look is continued with GT pieces like the rear spoiler and bright dual exhaust tips. Plus, we especially like the look of the upgraded polished SVT alloys. So the total package is unmistakably upgraded, but it never strays too far from a stock GT to be ostentatious.
The interior follows this same line of a custom look done with good taste. It\'s a factory Oxford White leather upholstery, but the newer front seat covers coordinate with the black carpeting and lower panels. This has some great features, like cruise control, power door locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, power steering, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod hookup. Power windows and a power convertible top mean never having to leave the driver\'s seat to make this Mustang an open-air experience. And the cold-blowing factory air conditioning keeps you cool even when you\'re top-down in the summertime. A power seat and a grippy steering wheel are great factory driver features. These are joined by nice additions, like the white-faced gauges and a sporty roll hoop to give this one some more performance flair.
The 1996 Mustang is an especially sought-after year, because this was the introduction of the fuel-injected 4.6-liter SOHC modular V8. It was the true successor to the pushrod 5.0 as it ushered in a new era of performance while still delivering the same hardy reputation. These were just as ready for upgrades as its predecessor, and this one show it off perfectly. A Densecharger cold air intake feeds a Trick Flow throttle body to let the V8 inhale deeper. And an upgraded dual exhaust with Flowmasters lets the exhale with added authority. This pony car runs strong, and you get to take full advantage of it thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. The handling is superior with power steering, ZR-rated performance tires, sway bars front & rear, and four-wheel disc brakes that include ABS.
A sleek look, the right upgrades, and the right fuel-injected V8 heart... this Mustang drop-top delivers everything you want, including the value price. Call now!
