1988 Foxbody 5.0


Recommended Posts

I’m looking at a foxbody mustang for my old man, because he’s been looking to get a sports car again after owning pickups for so long. Is there anything particular to look out for on these cars? Anyone have experience with them?

Look for cracks in the sheet metal under rear seat where the control arms are attached(torque box area) The fox platform was used until 2004,i have a 97,and love it. 94-04 are much improved chassis wise,disc brakes all around,and 5 lug wheels(better selection in the aftermarket). Aftermarket support is great for these years also. The 79-93 are going for premium $ these days,and the later years are still affordable now. Full disclosure, i still want a 86 model myself!

That's not a fox body, that's a sn95

No,but it is built on the fox four chassis,many parts are interchangeable. Foxbody owners use sn95 components as upgrades on their cars.
