1992 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 2dr Coupe


This is the second Mustang I have owned, the first being an '86 LX 5.0. Both cars are very similar and I have over 180,000 on each. They are rock solid reliable until about 160k mi when the TFI ($45), Heater Core ($40), and Water Pump ($45) should be changed. At 170k, you're looking at a rebuilt trans ($750). The engine and heads should exceed 200k mi. Struts and springs hold up well past 200k mi. The car easily revs past 5500 rpm and while the 220hp is matched by many modern cars, the 215lb/ft of torque at 4000rpm is not matched by many. Since torque is felt and HP seen, the fun is in the gobs of low-end torque.

Best Features

Hmm. The motor, suspension, trans, LX body, and the ability to put wide sticky tires (255x17x50) on it without trouble.

Worst Features

My 1986 had metal door handles that don't break, whereas the 1992 had breakable plastic. The ashtray door is broken on just about every 88-93 I see.
