LIFELONG GA CAR, RECENT RESPRAY, LOOKS GR8, DRIVES BETTER, 5.0L V8, 5-SPEED!!
The Fox Mustangs are approaching 40 years old now. I'm going to let that sink in while you look at how clean this 1992 Mustang LX 5.0 hatchback looks. Awesome two-tone paint gives it a sleek custom look, while a bone-stock 5.0 with a 5-speed provides plenty of old-school V8 motivation. Ultra-clean throughout, this is a fast, affordable, fun pony that hasn't been beaten or abused.
The clean lines made the LX somewhat of a sleeper in the early '90s, but everyone knew to look for the 5.0 badges and the twin polished tailpipes out back. Today, with a very modest cowl-induction hood with the blackout treatment and a recent red paint job, this one is a bit less subtle, but the clean, unadorned lines of the LX look as good as ever. The paint job is quite nicely done, with crisp masking lines on the hood so the stripe blends right into the blacked out cowl vent. There are no indications that this car has been raced, wrecked, or otherwise mistreated, with doors that close easily and great panel alignment throughout, reinforcing the idea that someone took pretty good care of this car. Following the paint job, the infamous '5.0' badges were reinstalled on the front fenders, so it's got the right look, and they kept the stock bumpers and rear spoiler, suggesting that the guy who owned this car understood restraint. It seems that the only other external mod are smoked taillights, and they look great.
The gray interior is in fantastic shape, offering sport bucket seats covered in gray vinyl upholstery. The door panels, center console, and the rear seat are all quite nice, and even the headliner remains taut. Ford's fat leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great in your hands, and the relatively upright greenhouse makes the Mustang very user-friendly in traffic, where it's the ultimate point-and-shoot machine. The original gauges are all fully operational and the shift knob is a unique piece that looks like a pistol grip whittled from billet aluminum. The original radio is long gone, replaced by a newer AM/FM/CD head unit, right below the controls for the ventilation system. Other options include cold A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, rear defroster, and power mirrors, making this a fairly loaded LX. With rear seats that fold down, cargo capacity is impressive and the trunk area shows only minor wear despite being 25 years old.
The venerable 5.0-liter V8 under the hood was the go-to powerplant in the 1990s and it remains fast and fun today. The hard part is finding one that hasn't been modified, raced, and abused, but this one appears to be almost entirely stock. Still wearing its original intake manifold, throttle body, and even the stock valve covers, it's one of those untouched cars that just seems to run and drive better than most. On paper, 225 horsepower and 300 pounds of torque don't sound amazing to us today, but in reality, this is still a very fast car that has few peers on the street. Thanks to a new clutch, the 5-speed manual shifts beautifully and powers the original 8.8-inch rear end with what are likely 3.08 gears inside. Bright 15-inch Weld aluminum wheels look great on the Fox body and carry 165/80/15 front and 255/60/15 rear performance radials that give it the right Mustang stance.
Still fast and still fun after all these years, this is the kind of 5.0 Mustang that you've always wanted to own. Call today!
