Welcome to my 1993 Mustang GT Convertible Homepage.  This '93 GT has all the factory options offered that year, even the rare ones like CD player, two tone leather, 5 spd., top liner, chrome five star pony wheels, and a power driver's seat.  It has 37k original miles and is a proud part of my collection of collectible old and late model cars. 
'93 was the last year for the famous "fox" body style and for the GT ground effects that appeared in 1987.  Minor enhancements were made from year to year but '93 was as good as it got because in '94 Ford switched to a new body style that many, including myself, did not like as much.  The Cobra of the same year brought many improvements but it was not available as a convertible and to me that is just a big no, no.  


This particular mustang has lived a charmed life, especially as mustangs go.  It was garaged, covered, and never, ever driven hard or abused like so many of these cars.  So few of these cars exist today in comparison to how many were made despite how incredibly durable the 5.0 drive train was.  This low mileage example has no rust, and the underneath is so clean it has hardly driven in the rain at that.  I feel lucky to have found this car and did a not inconsiderable sum of research before purchasing the right example with my hard earned money.  This car has all its ducks in a row.  For example:
1.  It is black with a black top. To me the best color combo for collector cars.
2.  Rare two tone leather interior that is like new.
3.  Rare factory CD player.  Back in '93 CD's were still not mainstream.
4.  Chrome factory wheels that set off perfectly against the black paint.
5.  All original body panels with original paint.
I know it is sac religious to the brand new window sticker crowd, but to me the 5.0 has one of the best sounds in the world so I could not resist doing a few noninvasive bolt on items of the best quality.  I did not touch the engine as that is just asking for tons of problems as no one does it better than the factory, but I did do the following bolt ons to give the car about 300HP:

1.   Powder Coated BBK Headers

2.   BBK chrome induction and throttle body units

3.   Cone K&N air filter

4.   3.73 limited slip differential from Ford

5.   Electric fans

6.   Huge BeCool aluminum radiator

7.   High volume aluminum water pump

8.   BBK full exhaust

9.   Polyurethane Bushings

10. KYB shocks and struts

11.  Slotted rotors and extreme duty brakes

12.  BF Goodrich Comp T/A 225/55ZR 16 tires

13.  2 convertible top boots, one black, one grey

14.  Custom floor mats with engraved mustang emblem


The car now has the sound and feel of an exotic with the reliability of a stock car.  Its performance is quite impressive for a mustang of this vintage.  I love the sound with the top down as you slowly row through the gears.  Not that any of this stuff adds value to the car's resale but the total cost of all upgrades is well over $6k and all the right stuff is done for you without hurting the integrity of this car.  Ford got it right with this car and it never fails to make you feel good, something many cars regardless of the price can't do.  So because of the fun to drive quotient and rock solid reliability this car begs to be driven.  And on beautiful spring and fall weekends it is the car I would rather cruise around in than most anything else in my collection.
