1987 5.0 LX restoration

Hey everyone I am currently trying to restore my 1987 LX I bought it 10 years ago but finally have some time to work on it. It's a piece of $&@ lol but I like it I some tips the guy I bought it from really Jerry rigged every thing on this car. I put in a new t-5 tranny and removed the shot automatic runs good but when i put in a new white face dials kit i found that the speedometer cluster was taken from a 89 or 90,s model and the guy seemed to have cut the speedometer odometer section out ant put it on a different cluster what a mess where could I get a new speedometer cluster.

I also put in a complete new exhaust sys the old one was rusted out I put in a bbk H pipe and flow master super 44 mufflers everything is clamped in until I can take it to muller place to get them welded. Sounds really good. I am new to this forum I will definitely need some good info while working on my restoration project. Here is a pic of the car I also just installed a replacement quarter panel window for my broken one.

I think New clusters are pretty expensive.u may be better off trying to find a used one from your local salvage yard.u can even try eBay or craigslist.good luck on your restoration!

Check Mustang Forum's Classifieds, your local Craigslist listings, and eBay. Just be careful when purchasing, especially when you can't examine the parts first.

You have a pic of the gauges cluster? I've pulled the cluster out of my donor car. If its the same, and around north Texas, you're welcome to it.
