5.0L HO, AUTO, EXCELLENT RESTORATION, LOADED, CORRECT COLORS, COLLECTOR QUALITY
The 5.0 already has a legendary reputation, and now it's beginning to become a valued classic. That's why it's important to take a closer look at such a well-optioned one like this 1988 Ford Mustang LX convertible.
You're looking at a factory 5.0 Mustang. That shade of code-7N, Dark Shadow Blue, is one that was not often seen on 1980s pony car, but it was a great choice because it gives this drop top a look that holds up in modern times. It looks especially nice because this paintwork was professionally redone less than two years ago. But this car goes well beyond just the right color, because everything seems to coordinate so well. The black five-star alloy wheels compliment the trim all around the car, including the power folding roof and the luggage rack on the back. Plus, the light blue pinstripe gives a nice hint at the interior.
Blue cars with complementing shades of blue on the inside are usually reserved for elegant vehicles from European automakers, but it looks perfect on this all-American convertible, too. The dash is stylishly simple, with great high-visibility gauges, fingertip controls for headlights, and big rotary knobs for the air conditioning system. The center armrest and ashtray door are intact, two plastic items that rarely survive the years, and an aftermarket cup holder remedies one of the Mustang's few shortcomings. This one comes loaded with power windows, power locks, cruise control, glass rear window, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and its original AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit in the dash. This is just clean, original, and pristine from every angle – everything you want in an appreciating classic.
The 5.0-liter electronic fuel-injected V8 under the hood is the reason the Mustang was the pony car of choice for an entire generation. Great sound, bulletproof performance, impressive torque, and an aftermarket that could transform it into anything your wallet could afford. We believe this is the original motor, and it remains largely unmolested. There's plenty of evidence of careful maintenance over the years, including a new alternator and heater core. This is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission, which is combined with a 3.27 rear for good versatility as both a performance car and a highway cruiser. In fact, you'll love driving this drop top all day with its power steering, front disc brakes, and Sumitomo HTR-Z low-profile tires.
This Mustang 5.0 convertible comes with a binder full of restoration, and maintenance receipts as well as the owner's manual. It's all part of a package that proves this cool-looking drop top is also a solid buy. Call today!!
