You’re looking at an affordable drop-top icon. Plus, this 1986 Ford Mustang LX has taken some extra time to give added power and poise to the fuel-injected 5.0 V8.

This pony car has some thoughtful upgrades. It starts with the paint. This was born a blue car, but it was changed to white later in life. We like this upgrade because they paired it with a high-contrast GT-style black package. This includes the headlight buckets, convertible top, and rub strip that hugs the entire body. And that awesome GT hood treatment fits the theme perfectly, too. Add in bright Weld racing wheels and bright dual exhaust tips, and you have quite a sporty style.

The interior remains distinct in its factory blue. It’s highly original on the front bucket seats, center console, dials, and dash. They deleted the back seat for some weight saving. Plus, you’ll notice the sports steering wheel and the auxiliary readouts for water temp and oil pressure. It all signals that you’re going to like what’s under the hood.

Mustang fans love 1986 because this is the year they would introduce fuel injection on the mighty 5.0. And while that’s already desirable, this one takes the fuel-injected spirit and gives it an upgrade to a later Cobra upper intake. There are other updates, like the Ford racing plug wires, an MSD distributor, upgraded hoses, and an aluminum radiator. It all means you have a strong overall driving package. The four-speed automatic transmission is a great pairing with the motor because it allows for quick kick-downs into power as well as easy overdrive cruising. In fact, you’ll love driving this coupe all day with its power steering, power brakes, and front discs. They even upgraded the rear suspension.

Here’s a classic pony car convertible upgraded for power. It makes for a fun classic, especially at this price. Call today!
