Unique, Comfortable, Powerful, And Fun. — This is the 2nd '89 LSC I have owned. The first had a salvage title and looked like a stock car. This one, however is an amazing example of a rare find. White, dark blue leather, all original LSC rims. It has 112k miles with the original plug wires in service 24 years later. Electronics in these cars are very picky and odd. Its not uncommon for yoi to have button/switch issues with windows, mirrors, and on board data. I recently purchase this car for $2000... I couldn't be nore pleased!

The Fox Body Started The 5.0 Revolution And Is A Great Part Of Mustang History — The Fox body is what got me into the Mustang scene and the ease by which you can modify is appealing. The engine is torquey and there is a good level of power. The interior is fine for a car of this year.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Mark Vii - Fun Car — I have to say that the Mark was one of the most attractive cars ever produced. Living in New England, most of them rotted out because of road salt because they were made without a frame and with very little steel. They are fairly rare up here. The car is very fast and can still keep up with the modern cars on the road today. However, the handling cannot compare. The ride quality is okay because of the (problematic) air springs on all four wheels. I can't recommend this car for daily use because of its age and problematic electronic systems -- You will need to have some intermediate understanding of auto mechanics in order to own one of these cars yourself or you will probably face steep prices at the repair shop. Common problems with the anti-lock brakes (First car ever produced with ABS and composite headlights-- 6 months before the corvette), air suspension, and the AOD transmission which doesn't like abuse and neglect. These are beautiful, luxurious and sporty cars but require a loving owner. This is a great car for anyone who is passionate about American automotive history and wants to invest in a fun weekend car. They can be found in alright condition for as little as $1500 and they can be totally worth it if you get one that has been taken care of and hasn't been beat on. I wish Lincoln/Ford/Mercury never stopped producing REAL cars or I'd own a brand new one today.

I Love It. If Only It Was A Little Faster I Would Never Have Bought My Camaro — Very reliable and will smoke most ricers. Throw some exhaust on and you've got a manly sounding luxury mustang. It wont keep up with modern v8s but you'll be riding in style and since its got the 5.0 from the Mustang GT its very easily upgraded with the huge aftermarket there is for that motor.

This car is big but, fun to drive. You can't beat the ride in this car on the highway. This car is quite rare with only a little over 6600 built. This one is 1 of 2040 painted in white. Read More
