Danniel's white 1989 Mustang parked among other Mustangs!
Gary sends us these photos of his Medium Shadow Blue 1989 LX 5.0L Sport Mustang hatchback just before he sold it. 1989 was the first year for the LX 5.0L Sport special edition which included many of the GT options, including the 5.0L V8 engine, on the base level Mustang body. This special edition was offered from 1989 through 1993. The 1989 Mustang sales brochure
says, For 1989, Mustang LX has an added twist - the LX 5.0L Sport. It comes with the awesome performance of the 5.0L GT engine and the taut handling of the GT suspension all wrapped up in the smooth styling of the LX. And it's available in 2-door hatchback, 2-door sedan, and convertible models The standard transmission is the 5-speed manual or you can opt for the convenience of the automatic overdrive transmission. The suspension system is the same as that used for the GT. Gas-pressured front structs and rear Quadra-shock set-up to give a trim, performance ride. Quick 14.7:1 constant ratio power rack-and-pinion steering. Traction-Lok axle and performance radials with 10-hole cast aluminum wheels are also part of the package. Hatchback and convertible models include articulated front bucket seats. The adjustable features of these seats include reclining backs, seat cushion side bolsters, under-thigh support and power lumbar support. Low back buckets are included with the 2-door sedan model.

Oxford White 1989 Mustang GT fastback owned by Josh Colby from Manchester, New Hampshire. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week
for the week starting June 30, 2013. Josh tells us more, "I obtained this beautiful Mustang last year around September. I have currently invested a good amount on preventative maintenance and other needed areas. If I had a choice and I really don't, I would not sell it. The previous owner 'said' that the motor and trans were rebuilt. How rebuilt, I do not know but she idl's flawlessly and doesn't have any issues shifting. The chassis has 184k miles on it and has a bit of rust under door areas and under the trunk and that is it. NO rust No rot! The motor was rebuilt about 15-25k miles ago.
The car is not a show car but is very clean looking and has minimal daily driving looks. She is parked every winter and is maintained. The only reason I am selling or TRADING is for a 4X4 pick up, extended cab 5.0L+. So I can have a yearly driver that I can use. Sad to say the truck I was
using has been.... taken away. So I am kind of in need something. The car starts daily in all weather types and even when she is parked and hasn't started for 3 days in 20 degree weather. It has been very reliable. If you have any questions please feel free to email at the email address listed. Remember, she is not a show car. I am either looking for a truck in decent to equal condition trade or a local cash sale. FUN STUFF: Mach 1 style vented hood, Typhoon intake manifold 'upper & lower', new detent cable for transmission, tranny flush, power steering flush, BBK CAI, BBK shorty headers, under drive pulleys, smog delete, aftermarket catless pipe to a custom side pipe exhaust, rebuilt transmission, rebuilt motor 'no receipt, PO says so, gaskets look new and it purs just fine', Cobra tail lights,
Performance automatic street/strip shift kit, front caster/camber, upper strut plates, KYB Shocks, battery power master, 140W alternator with smaller pulley, chassis stiffening bars, rear pan hard bars, new ball joint, new 190 degree Thermostat, distributor cap, 8mm wires, PVC, new heater core, Yukon Dura grip posi with 31 spline axle set up, side mounted oil pressure gauge and water temp gauge with fuel gauge 'fuel not hooked up', and a bunch of little things all around. NEEDS: rear main seal if you don't want a small oil leak, windshield cracked $195, fuel gauge connected
