5-Speed Foxstang: 1987 Ford Mustang LX 5.0

Classic car prices are always fluctuating, and for many various reasons, instead of slow appreciating with time, classics seem get a bump from cheap to expensive that happens overnight to the joy of sellers and detriment of buyers. But sometimes you can find a car that appears to have been priced without the recent bump factored in — as if the car is presented through a warp hole or time jump…and I am always happy to feature those cars, even if they might be from a dirty scammer. This next car is a rarified LX Fox Mustang with a 5.0 V8 and a manual gearbox — and it looks wicked. Find this 1987 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 offered for $6,500 in Houston, TX via craigslist.
