1993 Ford Mustang LX

The LX

U.S. Military Name Tapes Link

The LX is a 1993 Ford Mustang LX Hatchback with a 5.0 V8 and a Borg-Warner T-5 5-speed manual transmission that came to me as a project car and that I've never had on the road.

Following a rather convoluted path that started with the 347, then continued with the '89 LX SSP, the LX saga has spanned over three cars and nearly 20 years, and now rests with this '93 LX.

I'm a rather stubborn, determined individual, and little shows that as clearly as my journey with the LX project.

Purchased in September of 2005, this '93 LX was bought as the previous owner had begun to modify it, but not yet completed it. Although I had test driven it at one point, it has never run while I've owned it.

My first goal with this 160,000-mile beauty is to get it back on the road in stock form, assess its driving characteristics, then begin the process of modifying it to my liking.

Although, originally the LX project was intended to be an extensively modified street bruiser, what I will do with it now is up in the air – and only time will tell what happens to it.
