What is the difference between a 1989 Mustang LX 5.0 and 1989 Mustang GT?

Are there any differences? Are most LX parts interchangable with GT parts? Thanks!

they are mainly a trim package, with the GT having the aero kit with spoilers and flairs, also the LX came in either a 2 dr or 3 dr, but the GT only came in the 3 door hatchback....

Some of these answers are way off-base. The difference is only the trim and body style as said before by SVO man. When I bought my GT back then I paid extra for the GT but the LX had almost all the same options and the same engine.

mostly trim differences, and weight. the GT is heavier than the LX by about 200lbs.

same basicly, parts will interchange. some prefer the LX cause it's a little lighter.
