1989 Ford Mustang Lx Hatchback 2-door 5.0l Fox Body on 2040-cars
Albion, Michigan, United States
|Up for sale is a 1989 Mustang LX hatch 5 liter 5 speed car. It has 160,000 miles but runs excellent. I drove the car from Northeastern Pennsylvania to here in Michigan last summer, about a 600 mile trip and had no problems, I wouldn't hesitate to take the trip in the car again. As with every used car; there is good and bad. I'll start with the good
- The car runs and drives excellent
- Minimal rust for the area; the car has spent its entire life either in Northeastern Pennsylvania or here in Michigan
- It has a Pioneer CD player and Pioneer and Infinilty speakers
- the only miles on the new tires are from the trip here to MI
- with the 3.73 gears; the car gets about 26 MPG highway, was almost 30 with the 3.08 rear gears
- The car is lightly modified and the parts are as follows:
- 3.73 gears
- McLeod Stage 2 clutch
- 1 5/8 BBK shorty headers
- Off - Road H-pipe without cats
- 2.5 in Flowmaster 2 chamber mufflers and tailpipes
- sub frame connectors
- I'm sure I'm forgetting other things but I was basically preparing for a stronger engine
- There is rust on the car but as I said before there is only surface rust, no through holes
- There is a dent in the roof that can be seen in the photos, that is the reason that there is no headliner in the car, however I already have a $280 ABS plastic backed replacement from late model resto that is included with the car
- The cruise control has not worked since I have owned the car
I think that is about it. $500 down payment via paypal required within 48 hours of auction close. If you have any questions, by all means ask. I do not want to ship the car but if you must; you have to make arrangements with me first and the car will not leave until there is all the cash in my hands. The car is available for viewing locally, just send me a message and we can arrange to meet.
Good luck and happy bidding!

Today, hotrodding has a pretty staid definition. Take one classic American car, add one classic American V8, sprinkle with tire smoke and you pretty much have every hot rod to roll out of a shop in the last 40 years. Mike Borroughs knows it wasn't always this way. Once upon a time, getting your bucket to go faster meant grabbing whatever parts were lazing about the yard, bolting them together with a bit of ingenuity and laughing your way down the quarter mile. It's in that spirit that Burroughs built his 1928 Ford Model A.

Rather than turn to the tired flathead or the common Chevrolet small block, Burroughs plucked a 4.0-liter V8 from a 1995 BMW 7 Series. With 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, the engine has no trouble shuffling the old A around town. He had to build a custom chassis to get everything to cooperate, but the result is a 1,500-pound heathen that looks built to harass dry lake beds. You can check it out in the video below. Be warned, the soundtrack by Hanni el Khatib may not be safe for work - awesomeness of this caliber rarely is.
Originally developed with the sole purpose of being a Ferrari rival to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Ford GT40 became a prominent racing machine in the 1960s in both Europe and the US. Not wanting to leave such an important car out of the fun, the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance also took time out from its other celebrations to recognize the 50-year anniversary of the GT40.

Over its short lifespan, the GT40 was offered in a handful of configurations, but the classic short-tailed (Mk I and Mk II) bodystyles were well represented... especially in Gulf livery. James Glickenhaus (of Ferrari P4/5 fame) had his bright yellow Mk IV in the field, and there were several others in this bodystyle, including one that has seen plenty of time on the track judging by its chipped-up nose.
As a fitting statement for the car's lengthy racing history, GT40 Chassis Number 1075 won this year's Concours de Sport award. This car took home the checkered flag at Le Mans in 1968 and 1969, and racked up a total of six wins in just 11 races.
Nameplates like the Mercury Mariner and Lincoln Navigator aside, Ford hasn't offered a marine engine in over two decades. But through a new partnership with one of the biggest names in the business, the Dearborn-based automaker is dipping its proverbial toes back in the water.
Announced yesterday at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the new partnership between Ford Component Sales and Indmar Marine Engines will see the 6.2-liter V8 from the F-150 SVT Raptor and F-Series Super Duty marinized for use in boats.
The largest privately owned inboard gasoline marine engine manufacturer in the world, Indmar has been in the business for 43 years, and figures the Ford V8 will be just what watersport enthusiasts are looking for to tow waterskiers and wakeboarders to their hearts' content.
