In 1990, if you wanted the fastest car on the street, you bought a Mustang 5.0, whose popularity stemmed from a virtually indestructible drivetrain and a bargain-basement price. But sadly, because of all that, not to mention a booming aftermarket parts business, many of them were driven hard by enthusiastic owners. This 1990 Mustang LX 5.0 is a rare exception. Showing just over 34,000 original miles and presenting in super clean, original condition with a few modest upgrades, it's still a low-cost, high-octane performance machine that more than lives up to the legend. The Mustang's fascias were updated in 1987 to a new aero look, and it was perhaps most successful on the LX hatchback. With clean, unadorned lines, a simple black rub strip, and flush-mounted quarter windows, it was at once unassuming and instantly recognizable. Many buyers appreciated the stealth appearance, not to mention the lighter weight of the LX, but unlike most, the original owner of this car kept it in excellent condition and didn't abuse it. The bodywork is 100% original, with no rust or damage, and certainly no modifications. The paint is quite good by 1990 standards, and still carries a nice gloss and almost no stone chips in the usual areas. If you're looking for a clean 5.0, they don't come much better preserved than this. Perhaps you've seen these interior components selling on eBay for big money, but it's original equipment in this LX and beautifully preserved. Obviously someone really took care of this car, because the carpets show little wear, the seats are still firm and supportive, and the back seat looks virtually unused. The center console, which was fragile even when new, is fully functional, and the notorious ash tray lid works perfectly. This one was also fairly well equipped, including A/C, power windows, power locks, cruise control, and a factory AM/FM/cassette stereo that sounds pretty good. Everything works, and like the rest of the car, it's as reliable as a wood-burning stove. The Mustang's real charm lies under the hood, where the 5.0 liter V8 churned out a factory-rated 225 horsepower and 300 pounds of torque. Many stock Mustang owners would be disappointed by the real-world horsepower figures their beloved ponies put down, but thanks to a few smart upgrades, this one truly lives up to its billing showing 227 horsepower and 295 pounds of torque at the rear wheels. Those upgrades include a mass-air conversion, headers, ram air, an X-pipe, and a cat-back exhaust system that sounds awesome. Nothing radical, and the basic integrity of the 5.0 is unaltered, so you can beat on it all day without worrying about breakage. The 5-speed manual shifts easily, the clutch is progressive, and it feels like 1990 all over again. Even the original 15-inch alloy wheels remain, now wearing 225/60/15 Cooper radials. Finding a clean Fox-body 5.0 can be almost impossible, but this car is every bit as clean as it looks. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
