I bought this car new, actually drove it off the showroom floor. I now have just over 238,000 miles on it and it is still running strong. The only things I have done to it other than normal maintenance, is a new top after 13 years, (mostly garage kept) a fuel pump, and a distributor stator. What a great car! It's now over 21 years old and I hope to have it for another 21 years.
All I can say is wow. Car was bought as a wreck from an insurance company. Had some panel damage but the airbags originally killed the car. Fixed it up and got it back on the road. It has been in 6 wrecks since then and been rebuilt every time at a fairly cheap cost. The thing won't stop kicking. Car is fun to drive. The rack-and-pinion steering in this car means you are directly connected to the road, no power steering in your way. Just you and the road. The car has plenty of zip. When the car shifts above 50, you will find yourself trying to slow the thing down, it wants to go fast. The heater in the car is powerful, it will heat the car fast. The a/c is like a normal car. Great car in all.
lots of zip great heater lots of durability, survived 6 wrecks in its whole life that required panel replacement. rack-and-pinion steering, direct control
raising the car might help, we scrape all the time on the hills in Athens Ohio but these are also wreck related problems so nothing to report bad here.
Awesome car! Definitely the funnest car I've ever owned. It'll put you sideways before you can blink. To some people that sounds horrible, but for those who like speed it sounds great. I've found that parts are somewhat more expensive than they should be, I think it's because alot of people own Mustangs so the prices are jacked up.
The engine. It's so cool when your working on your car and people drive by and almost everytime stop and say, "A 5.0? In that!?" The sound. The new Mustangs sound good, but there is something about the old 5.0 sound that's just so much better.
Hard to work on, everything is jam packed under the hood and under the car. If you want to replace anything like the O2 sensors or starter you have to take the cross member off of the car. Also, move the existing cup holder and add another. If you have legs you're not siiting in the back seat.
Bought this car new and it served 7 years as our only car. We carried dogs, lumber and christmas trees in her. I added underdrive pulleys and a K&N FIPK. She gave me almost 30 mpg on the highway (at legal speeds at least). Now she is a toy with subframe connectors, new MAC exhaust from the motor back including the powerchamber, 3.73 rear gear, more racey seats. The Dyno run gave us 285hp (215 from the factory) with 117,000 on the odometer. I love this car and will keep it until I pass it on to my son. Glad I didn't buy the Camaro that we looked at! Going to have Carrol Shelby sign the glove box cover this fall!
Good exterior design. Totally reliable. Drivable in all weather, great dry convertible top and with posi-track and some skills it's easy to drive in the winter when equipped with the proper winter tires. And I love the smell of tires roasting when I drop the hammer.
Having 3 different Mustang types I find the 94 convertible GT a real nice ride. Tight road handle solid off the line. Need to make a few mods to get some more performance without breaking the bank. No rattles and engine runs strong. Cupholder is in a bad spot.
Comfortable to ride in. Great handling. Low cost to buy and keep going. Lots of aftermarket parts.
