I own a '95 GT Mustang. It is the 8th Mustang to sleep in the stable. After owning 6 foxes and a 4.6GT, this is with out a doubt my favorite of the bunch. It is extremely reliable, as all 5.0s have been for me. The interior is nice and comfortable. The car rides great and gets pretty good gas mileage. I usually get about 295 miles a tank with mine. And thats with 3.73 gears. The only downfall I see with the mighty 5.0 is, in stock form, its underpowered. Its a good base to start with 225hp and there are plenty of aftermarket parts to make these cars scream. I have no complaints and highly recommend any one buy a 5.0.
While mine is far from stock, the deep roar that the exhaust gives out.
Better flowing heads. Better computer to accept mods.
I purchased my mustang from a neighbor. I didn't realize it was a GTS until after purchase -- oh what a steal; one of 6000+ and only 197 of color combo and transmission. Very special car! I did a few modifications, pulleys, BBK intake, 3.55 Gears and complete tuneup. Smoking fast 0-50 4 valve Cobra runner. Great aftermarket; watch out if can become addictive. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who doesn't need to drive in the snow.
Manual transmission, pushrod blue oval power and ease of working on vehicle without being an ASE mechanic.
Better brakes and stiffer suspension; all easily solved by aftermarket, but like I said it can become addictive.
I bought this car wondering if the Ford will be able to compete with a Honda but this car is great fun to drive. It has130,000 miles on it. I bought the car for only $2700 bucks and it is well worth it. If I were to get a Honda it would have been a 1988 Honda for that price or even older.
Low-end grunt of the pushrod 302 is tons of fun, especially on city streets. With a few well selected, simple modifications, the car absolutely comes to life, while maintaining it's reliablity, and daily driver ease. The factory brakes are solid, interior and exterior design are solid, handles solid. The gas mileage around town is ok, but in it's pretty good on the freeway, getting about 24 mpg. I would recommend this car to anyone, it has been great for me. No other car offers this combination of performance, looks, reliablity, and comfort for the price.
Gotta love the sound, of a 5.0 with full exhaust open it up.
Stronger rear sway bar, harmonic balancer. The automatic transmission could shift better, firmer. Get a 5 speed stick.
Purchased car after kids went to
college. Was one of the best things I
did for myself. Absolutely love it! So
fun to drive, except in winter. Need
snows & 200# of sand but it still
goes. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
Convertible top (easy to put up &
down), Feeling while driving
