LOCAL TEXAS CAR, REBUILT AT 88K MILES & OBVIOUSLY WELL CARED FOR, CLEAN HISTORY!
With an alarmingly high mortality rate, nice Fox-body 5.0 Mustangs are getting harder to find every day. And while they were dirt cheap for many years, it appears that they've turned the corner and cars like this 1990 Ford Mustang GT convertible will be future collectables much the way the earlier cars are.
If you grew up in the '80s, you know and love this car. Dark charcoal paint with silver ground effects is the classic GT look and those "cheese grater" taillights always worked best with darker colors. This is a nicely preserved car with only light modifications and no history of abuse, so if you're looking for a good one, this is it. Paint quality is pretty good considering that it's more than 25 years old and it's nice to see a Fox Mustang without a goofy cowl-induction hood and a big wing stuck on the back. The only visible exterior mods include the Cobra-style grille insert and clear parking light lenses, but all that blends in so well most folks won't notice it's not stock. The urethane ground effects aren't cracked or distorted, the doors still fit well, and while there are a few signs of use and age, this car is a lot nicer than most of these that you see still cruising around. Just looking at it makes you all nostalgic, doesn't it?
The GT's interior is actually a great place to do some serious driving and it has aged quite well. Gray cloth upholstery was pretty cool back in the day and doesn't look as though it's been baking in the sun for the past two decades. We suspect that the front seats have been reupholstered, but whoever did the work was exceptionally good at his job because it looks very OEM in every way. Dynamat throughout the car keeps out the noise and heat, and nice gray carpets and matching door panels are equally well-preserved, and the leather-wrapped airbag wheel is in shockingly good shape. Other options include A/C, power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, and power lumbar support in the seats. A short-throw shifter is pretty much expected in a 5-speed 5.0, and there's a kickin' stereo system featuring an Alpine AM/FM/CD w/ Bluetooth head unit, Alpine S series speakers and a JL Audio subwoofer in the trunk. There's not a lot of trunk space, but it is clean and tidy, more proof of a relatively easy life. There's also a power black convertible top that stows under the original gray boot.
The legendary 5.0-liter V8 needs no introduction, and once you slide behind the wheel and fire up this torque factory, you'll understand why these cars continue to be wildly popular today. There are some minor bolt-ons like a BBK cold air induction system, a polished Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition system, and tubular exhaust headers, so it runs well and still feels awfully fast on the street. The engine and transmission were both rebuilt at 88k miles and while they had it open they installed new roller rockers and a Comp Cams E303 cam for a little extra performance boost. Thanks to the giant aluminum radiator up front, it never complains about the summer heat and the BBK tubular strut tower braces front and rear and subframe connectors make a noticeable difference in chassis rigidity. The underside is shockingly clean, so you know this car's had it easy, and flashy chrome Cobra R-style wheels are stuffed into the fenders and carry 245/45/17 performance radials.
Like the early mustangs before them, the 5.0 has found a new generation of hobbyists who love the effortless torque and easy upgrades available in these cars. They're not going to be this affordable for much longer, so if you've been looking for one, this is your chance. Call today!
