1993 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 with only 10K miles

Looks brand new.





from the article:
This 1993 Mustang LX 5.0 (VIN 1FACP41E7PF215138) is a claimed 10,091 original and looks exceptionally clean throughout. A well-documented 5-speed car, the gray interior shows very well despite its light color, and apart from the silly but easily removed add-on tach there’s little to nitpick anywhere on the car. Find it here at GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan for $17,900—just about $700 than its original sticker.

90 pictures and full article

Yeah, needs to be a notch and black interior. Lol, with that said, beggars can't be choosers. Best survivors for cheap I've seen are the 4 banger auto cars that have sat in some old lady's garage and taken her to the store for 20 years with 50k miles on them. Perfect swap candidates for a Coyote or even a really cheap modfox.

Still not worth $18,000. It's not this classic beauty or rare example of quality. It's a fox body, they are supposed to be cheap so you can mod the hell out of them. An all original fox body is absolutely nothing special. It could have two original miles on it, and it still should only sell for $3k.

It's not worth $18k, but its sure as hell worth more than $3k and would sell for more. The thing is, the foxes are cheap as hell to mod but finding an example of one that does not need a ****load of body work and a new interior is becoming harder and harder. The SN95s have kind of been taking over for the cheap **** cars and a really clean fox is worth more and more.

Waaaayyyyyy more than 3k.


I have a buddy that looked high and low and after a year he scooped up a 1993 Cobra with 42k miles and original owner. The thing was 9.3 outta 10 and pretty clean....oh and stock. he got it for 12.5k which I thought was one hell of a deal.

For $18k, you can buy a decent fox, do all the necessary body work, including adding all the chassis braces, you can replace the interior, including adding a cage, you could build the engine, and completely redo the suspension... or, for $18k, you can have a bone stock 90's fox body. Hmm...

Hell, you could coyote swap and cobra irs a cheap fox for that kind of money. Whoever buys that car for that price is an idiot.

The 1993 Cobra is worth about that, its actually worth more than the 94/95s because its a fox with that drivetrain in it. Honestly the best foxes to find for modding are the clean 4 banger notches in an old person's garage for 20 years. Can get them for next to nothing and often the interior doesn't need much... but often it does. The good thing is that a LOT of stuff for the foxes is being made in the aftermarket now like door panels and the hard plastic stuff actually holds up ok so you can restore it. Dashes can be dyed and all the trim stuff is being reproduced now too. Still doesn't mean a mint survivor 5.0 is worth $3k tho.

21 years dude, that's a survivor in Mustang world where damn near every single fox out there got the snot beat out of it or modded to the point of being unrecognizable. Granted, there are some nice ones out there still, but VERY few bone *** stock unmolested garage queens.

Not easy finding a good survivor where all the interior panels are in good shape with all the fasteners. Exterior is easier to fix but when you gotta hunt down interior parts get ready to pay some money.

How about a 1967 for under $20,000? That's a survivor. Here are a couple that popped up with a quick search:
Used 1967 Ford Mustang fastback in Knightstown IN at 500 Classic Auto Sales - Carsforsale.com
Used 1967 Ford Mustang in Calabasas CA at Tradenet - Carsforsale.com

F!ck that $18k fox body... no matter what condition it is in.

Again, nobody here is saying that the fox is worth $18k, its worth more like $10-$12k and even then it would have to go to someone who is going to want it for car shows etc... not a performance build. That is where you look for the 4 banger stangers in old ppl garages and do a modfox or a coyote fox or 408 or whatever.

Does not take away from the fact that this is still a survivor in the fox mustang world.

Maybe I am just stubborn, trying to hold on to my youth, or something. I didn't realize that 1993 cars were collector's items. It is in very good condition and wohld make for an excellent start to a show car. I still have a hard time believing that there are people out there that would ever consider a fox body a candidate for a show car, didn't even know there are people out there that go to car shows to look at bone stock fox bodies. I thought the whole draw of seeing a fox at a car show was to see what has been done to it. But I don't believe in restoration projects, either. I have no interest in looking at bone stock cars. All I care about is what you've done to make it better.

That's just me, though. Maybe I am missing the point.

They are not collectors cars yet but they do have a following and a decent market. Also unmolested foxes are hard to find. I am sure a car like that has all the original fasteners, good trim and will need nothing. Again I am sure it will fetch over 12 but under 18.

Yes, $18,000 is too much....but if were in the market for a Fox body.....I would look high and low for a 93 Cobra, preferably in teal.

I do respect what was done to the '93 Cobra fox to make it what it is. It would be a tremendously fun car to drive. But even a 1993 Cobra (which this post is not about) better be in emaculate condition and come with a foxy hooker for $18,000! If I was in the market for a fox body, I would absolutely get the 4-banger because I would be getting it to modify it. I wouldn't even leave a '93 Cobra alone. Why would you?

The point of having a Mustang is that it's a good starting point. You get a relatively fast car for a relatively cheap price. Then, you do what any other red blooded American does, and you pour your blood, sweat, and tears (and a $#!+-load of money) into it to make it the fastest, most obnoxious, gas-gusseling, rubber-melting, environment-killing car you can.
