1992 Ford Mustang LX Convertible
1992 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 1992. A very clean, well-kept car from Kansas that has a nice red exterior, sweet 16” pony wheels right from the factory, and plenty of power. If you are not excited yet, read on and fasten your seatbelt!
Vibrant red bathes this car and is in very nice condition with no rust, and is wrapped up with body colored matching trim, all also very nice. Color coordinated bumpers sport a wide mid-section in body matching vibrant red trim that encircles the car. As we move on let's stop at the beautiful white 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 power articulating sport front buckets and rear bench. Padding is excellent and these seats tend to grab you upon entering. All seating sports nicely preserved black piping on the borders. The white tonneau cover hides the white convertible top, which has a few cracks in the exterior stitching, but when in the down position, the cover makes it matchy matchy with the interior. Awesome black seatbelts keep you secure, and a black 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 black 90's square design, and gauge cluster is very clean, with odo showing 53,088 original miles. Fronting the dash is an air bagged steering wheel with cruise control buttons. In their white clad vinyl 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 black 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 stunning 5.0 liter V8, complete with factory correct 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 red factory over sprayed tubs and rockers. This undercarriage looks clean with no surface rust save for the driveshaft which is typical. The front suspension is independent coil spring in front, 4 link with coil springs on the rear. 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 fairly low mileage and straight out of 1992.
If you are in the market for some 1992 eye candy in the form of a very nicely preserved Fox body 5.0 liter convertible, look no further, as this one is a beauty. It is hard to find any real discernible faults on this classic.
