1992 Ford Mustang LX Convertible
Why is it called the "Fox" platform? I am unable to find a sure
reason why Ford identified this chassis as "Fox". Some people say
that it had something to do with VW's "Rabbit", but I can't confirm
that. I assume the Fox name has something to do with how Ford
downsized their vehicles. Ford's vehicles went from being big like
a cow to small and nimble like a Fox.
Here we go, a Fox body convertible 5.0 liter Camaro eater right out
of 1992. A very clean, well-kept car from Kansas that has a nice
red exterior, sweet 16" pony wheels right from the factory, and
plenty of power. If you are not excited yet, read on and fasten
Vibrant red bathes this car and is in very nice condition with no
rust, and is wrapped up with body colored matching trim, all also
very nice. Color coordinated bumpers sport a wide mid-section in
body matching vibrant red trim that encircles the car. As we move
on let's stop at the beautiful white canvas convertible top,
complete with glass rear window, also in nearly perfect condition.
It moves up and down flawlessly, and when down you get to enjoy the
sun beaming on your face, and the wind in your hair. 16-inch pony
wheels are on all 4 corners, and the only chrome seen is in the
form of the 5.0 badge as well as the LX badge...very tasty.
A fine mix of leather and vinyl wrapped in Oxford White, and
totally blemish free, cover the power articulating sport front
buckets and rear bench. Padding is excellent and these seats tend
to grab you upon entering. All seating sports nicely preserved
black piping on the borders. The white tonneau cover hides the
white convertible top, which has a few cracks in the exterior
stitching, but when in the down position, the cover makes it matchy
matchy with the interior. Awesome black seatbelts keep you secure,
and a black console races past the buckets toward the dash. This
houses the black shifter, and then makes its way upward making
space for the A/C, and AM/FM/Cassette sound system. The dash is
black 90's square design, and gauge cluster is very clean, with odo
showing 53,088 original miles. Fronting the dash is an air bagged
steering wheel with cruise control buttons. In their white clad
vinyl glory, door panels are nearly showroom, and house the power
windows, locks and sport mirror controls. It's tempted to dig my
bare feet in the wonderfully preserved black thick pile carpet with
great Mustang embroidered floor mats, mm mmmmm good!
Be prepared to have your breath taken away when flipping the hood,
as you'll be met with that stunning 5.0 liter V8, complete with
factory correct intake manifold, electronic fuel injection, and a
5-speed manual tranny. This pushes power back to an 8.8 inch 2.73
A virtual candy land of black painted steel frame and suspension,
with red factory over sprayed tubs and rockers. This undercarriage
looks clean with no surface rust save for the driveshaft which is
typical. The front suspension is independent coil spring in front,
4 link with coil springs on the rear. Power disc brakes are on the
front, and power drums on the rear. All clean and green on the
exhaust and mechanicals underneath.
I couldn't wait to get into this one, as a pristine Fox body 5
Liter has a particular attraction to any car guy, but I get to
drive it. It did not disappoint with a quick lighted fire, and
smooth idle, we are off with a pop of the clutch. Plenty of power,
great handling, and I felt like a million bucks behind this wheel.
I had to remind myself I was in a car with fairly low mileage and
straight out of 1992.
If you are in the market for some 1992 eye candy in the form of a
very nicely preserved Fox body 5.0 liter convertible, look no
further, as this one is a beauty. It is hard to find any real
discernible faults on this classic.
