For Sale: 1990 Ford Mustang in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1990 Ford Mustang GT

The third generation Mustang is frequently referred to as the Foxbody Mustang since it used the new Fox platform. Foxbody Mustangs were produced between 1979 and 1993, the longest generation of Mustangs to date, though there were several significant body updates made throughout this generation. Though the Foxbody Mustangs were popular at their release, they've only gained popularity in the years since then. The Foxbody has gained a reputation as a modders dream, and with the right modifications this Fox can fly.

Here at Classic Auto Mall we await with worms on our breath, (uhh baited breath actually!), to see what will come through the door next. Well every now and again we get a car that is a jaw dropper... so now we give you on consignment, and could be yours, a 1990 Fox bodied Mustang with a mere 2 owners and 11,950 original miles, and all buttoned up, well maintained, a photo feature car in Jim Smart's Foxbody Mustang Restoration 1979-1993 book, and simply marvelous to behold. Just like new, way back from 1990! Read ON!

Paint codes EL and YJ adorn this car and in layman's language this translates to Wild Strawberry Metallic and Light Titanium Gray Metallic respectively. The strawberry covers the upper body sections, and the titanium is bathing the lower sections as well as the ground effects. The paint is excellent and original and covers straight steel sculpted panels which make up this iconic iteration of the Fox bodied Mustang. It does not get any better than this with excellent minded gaps, perfectly straight rust-free panels, and clear plastic headlights and cheesegrater style taillights, excellent lower body and rocker flanges, and a pristine non sunroof top and sloping rear hatchback complete with an aerodynamic rear wing. Factory badging denotes the 5.0-liter mill that sleeps below the hood...shhhhhhhh, you'll awaken the beast! Black accents with door handles and window surround trimmings contrast to the Oxford and show off the car as it should. Cheese grater wrap around rear tail lighting is perfectly placed above the integrated body matching bumper. 15-inch turbine style wheels are on all 4 corners and have a nice factory fresh dull machined looking finish.

The mid 1980's brought us some wild stuff, but then there were highlights like the interior of this classic sly Fox with door panels in gray with black control panels, black accent panels and black door handles and switches. This continues for the seating with titanium gray tweed high back buckets, sporting tuck and roll inserts and smooth racing style wrap around bolsters. These seats have power lumbar controls so you can get it just right baby bear. A complimentary light gray console races past toward the dash and has a non broken ashtray door and a black accenting surround for the tall leather booted shifter. On the dash we have a mixture of lower titanium dash front panels which match up to the door panel line, and above padded black dash top. Extensive use of the mid 1980's square and rectangle design is used for the dash, with all controls and gauges in either of these simple geometric forms. All laid out exactly the way it left the factory, even down to the AM/FM/Cassette stereo. The dash is pristine, as are the carpets which float all seats in a perfect sea of gray thick pile comfort. Titanium side panels on the rear frame a rear 2 plus 2 bench which is shoehorned into the back of the car, but is comfortable once you get there and it can also be folded down to haul your trophy home from the next car show.

An original 5.0 Liter V8 with EFI to feed this mill, and we are ready to take on some serious stuff. A Tremec T5 5-speed manual transmission now installed on the back, and this pushes power back to a Ford 8.8-inch 2.73 geared rear axle featuring TracLoc. All in all just super duper factory condition under this hood, with only the coolant overflow bottle as the sole replaced part.

Some slight surface rust on the usual suspects, but certainly unremarkable and mostly straight unadulterated gray structurally sound steel unibody, floor pans and rockers. A like new exhaust system snakes its way rearward and features H piping and dual factory Ford mufflers which are fed by factory headers. Independent coil springs for the front suspension, and 4 link with coil springs for the rear, along with power disc brakes upfront and power drums for the rear are seen underneath in this clean environment.

It's not every day one gets the opportunity to drive a 11,950 mile car from 1990 so my decoder/test driver/copy editor cohort and I both took the opportunity and we found a quick starter, smooth runner, and a test track ace with plenty of power, great handling, and good brakes which stopped the car in a straight line. It also was an excellent cruiser and produced a nice melodious sound with the exhaust. All controls were working perfectly, with only the low coolant light on even though the coolant level is ok. The buckets grab you in a tasteful way, and everything is within easy reach while driving.

Minty is a word oft seen on eBay and is certainly apropos here. With documented low mileage she is all here in her 1990 glory, and ready to have her key turned and her tires lit up. Lots of love left in this one, and it's a classic Fox bodied Mustang which are ever increasing in value right at this moment. Hop in this multiple time Carlisle car show award winner quick before it goes to someone else.
