1990 Ford Mustang

In 1990, Ford released its 25th anniversary models, claiming that the first Mustang was a 1964 1/2 model year. Good to know that Ford rounds up.

Regardless, there were 2000 Emerald Green GT convertibles with white leather interiors available to celebrate. A rumor that Ford would be bringing back at 351-ci engine proved false, and the Boss would remain part of history.

Other changes for the 1990 Ford Mustang included the bumping of the speedometer from one rated to 85 mph to one listing numbers up to 140 mph. Available engines to achieve these speeds were the base 2.3-liter I4 which produced 88 horsepower, and the ever-popular 5.0-liter V8 H0, producing 225 horsepower.
