1989 Ford Mustang LX
This is your opportunity to own a much desired “Fox Body” Ford Mustangcoupe / notchback. This is a rotisserie restored 1989 Mustang LX coupe built as a “Pro Touring” car and has been featured in issue 5 of Fox Mustang Magazine. This Mustang had less than 23,000 miles on it when the restoration began, o it started out as a near perfect body with no rust. Only 300 break-in miles have been logged on this Mustang since the completion of the restoration.
The paint is a dark metallic gray over lighter silver, eparated by a thin orange stripe. The mirror shine paint job is flawless, nd above the quality that you see on most cars at high end car shows. The metallic in the dark gray really stands out in the sun and under bright lights.
The engine is a stout 347 stroker engine rated at 525RWHP with worked Trick Flow heads; Vortech S-Trim Supercharger with 48-pound Trick Flow injectors fed by an Aeromotive fuel system; MSD ignition; Crane cam and a long list of other goodies The transmission is a Tremec T600.
The exhausts starts with a pair of short tube Doug’s headers, 2.5 inch stainless X-pipe and Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers that gives it an aggressive but subdued exhaust note at idle hinting at the high performance experience that goes with this vehicle.
Suspension is adjustable coil-overs on all 4 corners. Wheels are FR500 10-spokes with Nitto 235/45ZR17 tires up front and NT555 P275/40R17 Extreme Drag Radial rubber in the rear. Once rolling the AeroSpace disc brakes on all 4 corners slow things down with the help of drilled and slotted rotors.
The interior is all brand new as well; it has custom two tone leather seats to mimic the exterior colors of the car. Water Temp, oost Press and Air Fuel gauges are tastefully mounted to driver’s side windshield pillar. It also has a custom fit role bar / cage painted the same dark metallic gray as the top of the outside of the car. A high end stereo system made up of a PioneerAM/FM/CD player and a Bazooka sub-woofer complete the total interior package.
Driving this car is incredible. It is a contradiction of sensations with the mix of raw power that’s available instantly at any RPM and in any gear, ombined with the predictability of the suspension, he right tires, ightweight wheels and spot-on aftermarket brakes.
This 89 Mustang was a two year build and it was built to be bulletproof. Everything was built to handle 800 plus horsepower – the engine, ransmission, ear end, tc. It does have 31 spline axles with 3:73 gears as well as subframe connectors that are welded in from front to back. As mentioned above it was a very low mileage car to begin with – there was no rust at all and every panel on the car is original. The shell was painted with no wires or anything in it, esulting in perfection due to attention to detail when prepping, ainting and re-assembling the car. Look at the last two pictures where the two-tone paint as well as the pin striping that separates the two colors is carried through to the inside of the doors as well as the door jams.
