Within just a few days of posting a profile of a low-mileage Mustang GT coupe, we have a similar survivor grade example – this time in drop-top form here on eBay. Rare in both its color and condition, this 5-speed convertible Mustang
GT LX is already approaching $8,000 in bidding activity. Thanks to Barn Finds reader Jim S. for the find.
As much as I am not a convertible guy, I like this car. I’ve seen very few Mustangs in this OEM shade called “Tropical Yellow,” and it’s a subtle eye-catcher for sure. Personally, I think this low-mileage
GT LX(only 61,000 miles on the clock) would look perfect parked next to a Jeep Wrangler Islander Edition, with its similarly bright and cheerful colors. Most convertibles I see are paired to a lethargic automatic so it’s refreshing to see three pedals and a V8 here despite the missing roof.
The one and the only 5.0! The mechanical condition is said to be excellent, with no glaring issues and most of the factory stickers and badging still in place. Some preventative maintenance has already been done, including a proactive radiator flush and A/C conversion to R134A for staying cool when the sun is beating down.
Whenever I see a Florida find, I have to prepare myself for things like sun-cracked dashboards and seating surfaces, faded paint and bumper taps from elderly drivers. However, this car appears to avoid these ailments, and despite the license plate, the Mustang is actually in Vermont. Perhaps a family member inherited it? If that’s the case, I’d hold onto this car for quite a while to come.
