1989 Ford Mustang Sport LX Description

Very original low mile and super clean California owned 1989 Ford Mustang Sport LX 5.0 Convertible in rare Tropical Yellow with Sand Beige interior.
Top replaced about 5 years ago from Beige to Black (better looking)Original California plates from 1989 and frame/plastic plate from dealerOriginal Ford Window StickerAll documentation including repairs done at Ford dealership
I'm the 3rd owner and purchased from 2nd owner last year who had the car since 1993. It was purchased new from Swanson Ford in Los Gatos. Excellent mechanical shape and condition in comparison to the market as most all need key parts replaced for drivability. The cassette deck and Ford Premium sound system also works and sounds great!
Put in $3500 in parts and labor for recondition work that make this as turn key as possible so that everything works perfectly. Drives like the performance car it was back in the day and with the suspension rebuilt it really hugs the road. See the cost list below as the work done was to keep originality and leverage better than OE quality with these light improvements.
  • KYB Excel-G Struts & Gas-Adjust Shocks
  • Moog suspension parts
  • Walker DynoMax Turbo Mufflers and welded pipes (I kept the original stainless steel tips)
  • Ohstu (Falken) performance tires
