Are 1984 Mustangs more reliable than Japanese cars?

I'm looking into buying a 1984 Ford Mustang LX. This car is in unusually good condition with 91,000 miles and practically no carfax reports. Also the interior and the convertible top are in good condition. My dad doesn't want me to get the car because he thinks Mustangs aren't reliable cars and he wants me to get a japanese car (BORING). I've been looking at mustangs for almost 6 months now and I've never seen one in this time range in such good condition.

You want to get a Mustang so get the Mustang. The 80's Mustangs were junk...your dad is right. Even though it is in good condition, it is ready to start nickle and diming you. But since you won't be happy with a Japanese car, but the POS Mustang. Parents don't know anything.

There are several concerns here. The Mustang LX of that year can come with the same V8 that the GT had, so if you have not been driving for a least three years, you should check how much insurance will cost. It could be very expensive.

Second, and in direct answer to your question, no the Ford will not be as reliable as the same year and same mileage Japanese car. It probably will not be as reliable as one with double that mileage, either.

Your dad is right, the Mustang is garbage. If you're looking for an exciting Japanese used car, take a look at the 1991 or 1994 Toyota Supra. I'm not too sure what your budget is like, but the Supra will run circles around the mustang and it looks better too.
