1989 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 HO from North America
Get in, sit down, shut up and HOLD ON!!! :-)
SMALL stuff: Fan clutch, radiator pin hole, hoses, belt, brakes.
THE BIG PROBLEM? An electrical fire on the main wiring harness!! BIG bucks to fix, $2100!!!
What a great car! Well, other than the wiring harness. Great performance, awesome handling, great fuel mileage. The perfect performer for a "non racer".
Heads up. 89's have a very unique electrical system. Main wiring harness made for ONLY 1989's. 87, 88 were not mass air, so folks took the main harnesses from Ford's parts bins to upgrade theirs to 1989 standards. 1990-1993 have different ones too... air bag connections change the harness.
KNOW THE SELLER!!! These cars are great used. IF they have been used and abused, it shows. Cared for, they are gems!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
