1990 Ford Mustang LX Convertible
Why is it called the “Fox” platform? I am unable to find a sure reason why Ford identified this chassis as “Fox”. Some people say that it had something to do with VW's “Rabbit”, but I can't confirm that. I assume the Fox name has something to do with how Ford downsized their vehicles. Ford's vehicles went from being big like a cow to small and nimble like a Fox.
Here we go, a Fox body convertible 5.0-liter Camaro eater right out of 1990. A very clean, well-kept car that has a snazzy color combo, sweet 16” wheels right out of the 1990's, and plenty of power. If you are not excited yet, read on and fasten your seatbelt!
Crystal Blue metallic bathes this car and is in very nice condition with no rust, and is peppered with black trim, all also very nice. Color coordinated bumpers sport a wide mid-section black trim that encircles the car adding great contrast and moving your eye all over. As we move let's stop at the beautiful black canvas convertible top, complete with glass rear window, also in nearly perfect condition. It moves up and down flawlessly, and when down you get to enjoy the sun beaming on your face, and the wind in your hair. 16-inch pony wheels are on all 4 corners, and the only chrome seen is in the form of the 5.0 badge as well as the LX badge...very tasty.
A fine mix of leather and vinyl wrapped in Oxford white, and totally blemish free, cover the articulating sport front buckets and rear bench. Padding is excellent and these seats tend to grab you upon entering. A nice white boot cover hides the black convertible top when in the down position and makes it matchy matchy with the interior. Awesome exterior matching blue seatbelts keep you secure, and a blue console races past the buckets toward the dash. This houses the black shifter, and then makes its way upward making space for the A/C, and AM/FM/Cassette sound system. The dash is a fine mixture of blue and black 90's square design, and gauge cluster is very clean, with odometer showing 82,503 original miles. Fronting the dash is an air bagged steering wheel with cruise control buttons. In their blue clad plastic glory, door panels are nearly showroom, and house the power windows, locks and sport mirror controls. It's tempted to dig my bare feet in the wonderfully preserved thick pile carpet with great Mustang embroidered floor mats, mm mmmmm good!
Be prepared to have your breath taken away when flipping the hood, as you'll be met with that pristine 5.0-liter V8, complete with polished Explorer GT40 intake manifold, electronic fuel injection, and a 5-speed manual tranny. This pushes power back to an 8.8 inch 2.73 Trac-Loc rear.
A virtual candy land of black painted steel frame and suspension, with blue sprayed tubs and rockers. This undercarriage looks like it's never been outside and is certainly not befitting to a car with 82K miles! The front suspension is independent coil spring and the rear is a 4 link with coil springs. Power disc brakes are on the front, and power drums on the rear. All clean and green on the exhaust and mechanicals underneath.
I couldn't wait to get into this one, as a pristine Fox body 5-liter has a particular attraction to any car guy, but I get to drive it. It did not disappoint with a quick lighted fire, and smooth idle, we are off with a pop of the clutch. Plenty of power, great handling, and I felt like a million bucks behind this wheel. I had to remind myself I was in a car with medium mileage and straight out of 1990.
If you are in the market for some 1990 eye candy in the form of a very nicely preserved Fox body 5.0-liter look no further, as this one is a beauty. It is hard to find any rear discernible faults on this classic.
