1991 Ford Mustang Convertible LX 5.0 2dr Convertible
My wife's brother bought this car new. He gave it to our daughter when she turned 16. She drove it 3 years until her employer bought her a new pickup in 2007. She then gave it to our 16 year son. With the exception of several brake jobs and a few batteries It has done well. It now has 116K miles on it. It runs well, other than regular maintaince the drive train is untouched. It has had some cosmetic work (paint, upolstery, & top redone.) It has been a great car that the whole family has had fun with. Not too many cars last a buyer this long.
I bought this car years ago, from first owner who really cared for it. It had 135k miles, but looked great and ran really well. Owned as a second car, only put 20 k miles in 5 years, but never had any problems (surprised at the quality since everyone complains about American cars, me included!). If you can find a clean one they are a great ride, very fun and economical compared to the GT's that are usually beat, and eat gas. Great looks too!
The ride is VERY comfortable for cruising with the top down - VERY FUN!
Allow the seats to recline further (as the back seat is rarely used).
I bought my LX convertible from a guy that refurbished the entire body and had the car repainted bringing it back to its luster of 14 yrs ago. The car has less power then I thought but that might be the age showing. Still drives smooth which at this point is what I wanted in a gas saver vehicle.
Looks. Respect the Fox body style! (and the Mustang II).
