1989 Ford Mustang Lx 5.0 Hatchback (mca Show Winner) on 2040-cars
Greenwood, Indiana, United States
1989 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 (2013 MCA Indy National Event Show Winner)
I had this car listed earlier this year here on EBay, but it did not sell as it did not hit my reserve price. I am actually kind of glad it didn't sell, because just shortly after I had it listed the transmission went out and the last thing I will do is misrepresent something. It now has a new trans. and is ready to go. I do have more invested in the car than I am asking, but isn't that the way it always is?
If you are looking for a VERY Clean and nice Foxbody Mustang, than this is the one for you! Up for auction is this rare color combination 1989 Mustang LX 5.0 - This car is just one of the few left out there that isn't cut up and been made into a race car. The engine is all stock and original with only 60,955 miles. The only performance addition is an K&N air filter. I did install a new water pump, 160 degree thermostat, belt tensioner pulley, intake gaskets, timing chain gasket, oil pan gasket, serpentine belt, hoses, and a new aluminum radiator when I detailed the engine compartment. All new A/C components include, compressor, receiver/dryer, condenser, and hoses. The A/C has been converted to 134A and blows ice cold. The car has a fresh rebuilt transmission with "less than 50 miles on it", done by Dan Gilsdorf at Silverfox Transmissions. For the internal information regarding this AOD-450 click on this link http://www.silverfoxtrans.com/silverfoxtrans.com/TM_AOD-450.html. Also installed in the transmission is a hi-performance valve body from Silverfox Transmissions. The SPT-R (with a manual O/D lock-out valve body really woke this car up)! The shift pattern is altered so that the user can command each gear separately, and has a 12 volt solenoid for overdrive engagement. No more “1-D-1 Shuffle”!!! This VB can be shifted manually to higher gears while the lower gears maintain fully automatic function controlled with TV pressure. I hid the 12V toggle switch for this feature in the ash tray located on the console. I also went ahead and installed a brand new Circle D torque convertor as Dan recommended. This link shows the specs. for the convertor. https://www.circledspecialties.com/p-64-ford-12-hp-4r100-torque-converter.aspx With the new 8.8 3.73:1 Ford Motorsports rear gear the car BARKS the tires in the 1-2 shift and CHERPS the tires in the 2-3 shift.
It has the 5-lug conversion kit from Late Model Mustang with 28- Spline axles. Has the factory headers with a BBK H-Pipe & Flowmaster American Thunder 409S stainless steel kit w/ polished tips. (I still have the original pipe with the convertors that will go with the car). The car has an awesome stance as it has Eiback Sportline lowering kit which dropped it 1.7" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. New front KYB Struts and Maximum Motorsports caster/camber plates for the proper frontend alignment. New KYB rear shocks also. New front disc brakes & bearings as part of the 5-lug conversion. Wheels are Billet Specialties Street Lites. Front is 15x3.5 w/1.75 Backspacing, the rears are 15x8 w/5.5 Backspacing. (no tire rubbing issues). The front tires are Kumbo Power Star 165/80R-15 and the rears are Nitto Drag Radials 275/50-15. (The factory 4-lug 10 hole wheels go with the car also.)
The exterior color is Cabernet Red with a RARE interior color of Saddle Tan. The car has all of its original NOS sheet medal & body panels and upholstery & carpet.
Again this car is very clean and highly detailed. It has won Best of Show in it's class at the Arthritis show in Dublin, OH in 2012 and it was a Class winner at the 2013 Race to Indy Mustang Club of America National Event in Indianapolis, IN

The deaths of the Ford Crown Victoria and the Lincoln Town Car have meant overhauls of three high-profile American fleets: police, taxi and livery car. Just as police fleets are more open to considering other options and a Nissan van is the new face of the NYC taxi, livery car companies are looking at replacements for the Town Car beyond The Blue Oval. Ford, via Lincoln, has made an MKT Town Car (pictured), but an article in the Detroit News claims "it has failed to win over most of the big limousine companies." The upstarts trying to move in include livery and limo editions of the Cadillac XTS, and livery specifications of the Toyota Avalon and Chrysler 300.
Each of those challengers, however, faces challenges. The Town Car was a workhorse, American, rear-wheel-drive sedan with plenty of rear legroom. Cadillac has been in the livery space before but with decontented models that were about selling the brand, not its luxury. It is taking the opposite approach with the XTS, pointing out that its livery edition is "contented in the upper half of the XTS range." Still, the CEO of Michigan's largest livery company says "it's quite a bit smaller than what we're used to," and he also prefers rear-wheel drive.
The Chrysler 300 is rear-wheel drive, and American, which matters to some companies, but Chrysler hasn't yet revealed the livery package for it. The livery Avalon marks Toyota's first time getting into that business in the US, a natural step after having done so well with taxi clients and with the Town Car out of the way. Still, the livery client is a different to taxi buyers, so the Avalon could face other soft-touch hurdles.
The Cadillac Of Stopgaps
As confusing as most alphanumeric car names have gotten in recent years, at least one constant has been that the letter "X" is generally indicative of a crossover. Then why did General Motors use this letter on its new 2013 Cadillac XTS luxury sedan? Well, for that, we'll have to look to the world of mathematics where "X" stands for an unknown variable or a placeholder. Now we're talking. The XTS is just an interim product sitting at the top of Cadillac's four-door food chain until the brand gets a true flagship in place. That sounds like a lot of resources to spend on what will likely be a one-and-done model, but the automaker needed to get something - anything - to replace the DTS.
So here you have the 2013 XTS. A big luxury sedan that was created to bridge the gap between Cadillac's recent past and its pending future. Going into our week with this XTS knowing that it was a stopgap measure proved to be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, we know (or hope) that this car will act as a baseline for future high-end Cadillac models, but at the same time, we couldn't help but be mindful of past stopgap models, albeit in more entry-level segments, like the Cimarron and Catera.
Cadillac has just set the new configurator for the redesigned, 2014 CTS live. While we've already tested out the new CTS, this is our first chance to play with all the interior and exterior color options and to get a fair idea of the price. The new CTS covers a broad swath from the $46,025 base model, with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, to the $59,995 VSport, complete with its brawny, 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6.
It doesn't take much to send the CTS's price up from there, though. Opt for the VSport Premium trim, and the price immediately jumps $10,000. Opting for one of the premium paint colors is all that's needed to nudge the CTS past $70,000. For reference, a 556-horsepower CTS-V (previous-generation, naturally) starts at $64,515.
