Drop Top Fox: 1990 Ford Mustang LX Convertible

With summer on the horizon, the temptation to purchase a convertible surely intensifies. Vehicles such as this driver-quality 1990 Ford Mustang LX that is here on eBay don’t help these urges, especially when it has a brand new convertible top and a striking red exterior paint color.

This drop top ‘Stang is available in California, where it has spent its entire life. Even with some minor spots of wear throughout, this Mustang is in pretty impressive shape for its age.

On the exterior of the vehicle, there are a few flaws; such as the missing badge on the passenger side and some faded paint on the front bumper.

Inside the cabin, the carpets are very clean and the dash is crack free. Some of the material on the seats and door cards has faded, but all components appear to be original and present. Unfortunately, however, the rear driver’s side power window does not work.

This example packs a 5.0-liter V8 engine under the hood, which pairs to an automatic transmission to drive the rear wheels. The drivetrain is completely unmodified and only has 56,990 miles on it, with the seller claiming it runs strong and without issue.

Currently, bidding for this Mustang is at $2,850 with no reserve. Could you see yourself adding this horse to your stable in time for the summer, or would you pass on this pony?

    Whew…whole lotta red goin’ on there.

    Looks like a nice car for the money, assuming the bidding stays reasonable.

    Panel gap between the front bumper and front driver quarter panel has a weird look to it by the hood area. In addition, is it me or does the driver door look misaligned to the rest of the car? Autocheck says accidents = none, but I have my doubts given the alignment of the driver side panels.

    Maybe it’s the lighting, maybe it’s the pictures, but that whole quarter panel does not flow properly / align.

    Looks like the odometer has gone around according to the carfax

    There are lots of little problems with the car, missing speaker cover on passenger door, 5.0 fender emblem, stance gap on both inner front fenders and dead grass stuck to the undercarriage. I’d say it was parked for a long time and someone detailed the car to death. Its not as nice as it looks. I think there is a good chance this the color red they use when putting lipstick on a pig. Potential buyers should go over this car carefully before closing the purchase.

      Good catch Steve. Shock towers are notorious for rot also. Red interior never ages well. I do like its unmolested unlike lots of foxbodys out there.

      Yes Steve, and if you look at the odometer that 6 does not line up with the other numbers. Instant red flag. Hopefully there’s a paper trail that can verify the miles but for some reason this car has me thinking water damage. It’s not overly bad, but it just doesn’t feel like it is what it claims to be. No disrespect intended. Just feels… off.

    Beginning in 89 the LX 5.0 got the GT seats. The front seats in this car look like 4 cyl seats

    Mouse fur interior- not visually appealing for sure, but comfortable (as contrasted to my kid’s late-model VW Golf, which has leather that’s as soft as a rhino tusk). Every time I see one of these it reminds me of Mom saying she wanted a ragtop, and I suggested an LX 5.0. Over Labor Day I went out of town, only to return to see a Cavalier RS convert in the driveway. A car so dreadful that it never really did run properly. She died right after, and that stupid car is still sitting in the barn, and still not running.

    Nice to the “Foxes” get attention.

    The seats and door panels are not correct. Missing the painted factory pin stripe on the upper body sides which means its been painted. Fortunately the engine compartment is stock. Car is a bit rough. Automatics in these are much less desirable than the 5-speed. Buy accordingly……..
