This 1989 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 Convertible is coming out of a small collection
It was maintained and upgraded to be a true cruiser that looks sharp out on the road. So if you’re looking for a fun V8-poser drop-top classic – that’s also affordable – you know this one has extra appeal.
Medium Scarlet is the factory-correct color for this car, and there’s always something extra attractive about the timeless look of a red Mustang ragtop. In fact, this even shows some signs of being the factory finish. Some professional work could really unlock a new dimension to this finish, but we like it for being bright and complete without making us too nervous to drive this pony car. And an LX is for the details lovers with the luggage rack, sport mirrors, and a white pinstripe to coordinate with the roof. Plus, part of being in a cruiser’s collection means giving this the right hint of sporty style. You see it in the lowered stance and polished dual exhaust tips. And the 17-inch Cobra wheels are a cool treat for those who are in-the-know on this gen Mustang.
If you like the red paint with the white top on the outside, then you’ll love the full two-tone interior. With leather seats, red carpeting, a white convertible boot, a red dash, and two-tone door panels make this quite a complete package. It’s nicely detailed, right down to the red rubber floormats and red seatbelts. It all looks good and complete without taking itself too seriously and not being a true driver. After all, an LX is supposed to be a luxury cruiser. So you have a power front seat, power locks, a tilt steering column, an armrest center console, and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. Because the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a, you can comfortably enjoy top-down motoring long into the summer season. Speaking of open-top fun, you have power windows and a power convertible top. So you never have to leave the driver’s seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-you-hair experience.
Ford’s 5.0-liter V8 is a true legend. It was the ideal mix of horsepower, torque, and size that made for a robust powerhouse. And it even has a dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers to give it the right V8 tone. It’s unknown if the five-digit odometer represents the full actual mileage, but the overall presentation here shows good care and maintenance. And the way this fuel-injected heart fires up and runs reaffirms the feeling of a well-respected car. The lowered stance is the result of upgraded strut mounts and sports springs. So it not only looks good, but it also handles sharper. But his one also has a full easy cruiser style. That’s why you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, cruise control, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
