This 1989 Ford Mustang LX Convertible has a rare color, loaded A/C interior, and a terrific price. So it's great to find a local-owned drop-top of distinction.
This is a great local find. We're told it was sold new less than two hours from our showroom, and the Charlotte DSO confirms its local heritage. This also has a low number of owners, and possibly all in the same family. All of that adds distinction to this Mustang, and so it's great to have it in a distinctive color. The Mimosa Yellow was only offered for two years, and it sets the tone right for this car. After all, we love a GT in black or red, but this is an LX trim that likes to be a bit more sophisticated. So it's a drop-top with the tropical kind of color that feels like this one could be sent to a Caribbean town and fit right in. The majority of the finish shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. It's not perfect 30+ years later, and so you can use some of the value price to invest in a respray if you so desire. But we like how this shows its originality while still retaining the right gloss to show off the quality panel fit. Also, the yellow is a great way to highlight the distinct black accents like the rear luggage rack, sport mirrors, trim, and the rubber rub strip that encircles the car. The black convertible top coordinates with this package, and since it has a crisp and clean style, this convertible look good even with the roof is in place.
As much as we like the look of this one with the top up, it looks even better when you take it down. That's because the tan interior has a harmonizing tone with the yellow exterior. There's even a matching convertible boot. This one was built to be an easy cruiser, and so you'll appreciate how the cloth upholstery won't sizzle your legs on a hot day. And this luxury LX has the best features like power mirrors, power locks, a center console, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with CD changer in the trunk. Power windows and a power convertible top allow you to open this one up without ever leaving the driver's seat. And the cold-blowing air conditioning lets you stay cool even on those sunny days you're driving along the beach road.
Under the hood is the 2.3-liter four-cylinder motor. It's unknown if the odometer reflects the car's full mileage, but the presentation here looks quite stock and correctly maintained. This is a fuel-injected unit, and so it starts, runs, and drives, with the kind of modern ability you want in a true cruiser. Plus, this was the kind of motor that found its way into the SVO coupes and turbo T-birds of the era. We don't know if you're thinking about upgrading to some turbocharged fun in this cruiser, but it does remind us of its hardy nature. And we like how this one is built to be an easy driver with comfortable features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs. You even have cruise control and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive for longer road trips.
This is a local drop-top with plenty of distinct. So if you're looking to drive a loaded and well-priced convertible that gets you noticed, you don't want to miss this Mustang. Call now!
