Question 1990 Mustang LX 7-up edition

Hi,
I"m looking at a 90' 7-up edition with 130k miles, 5-spd for $4300. The convertible top motor needs to be replaced and some very minor interior work needed.
Is this worth this money?

please advice?

thanks

Depends on how well the rest of the car is.

Is a 7-Up edition a red convertible with a white top? If so, there is one about a quarter mile up the road that has been sitting in the garage since I moved here back in 1993 and hasn't moved from there since then. It has 2,500 miles on it, ORIGINAL CONDITION whatever model it is. It's completely spotless and the guy says he wont ever sell it... 5.0 5 Speed GT. Were the GT's a 7-Up edition? Or was it just the LX's?

( Carter ) 1993 Mustang GT - "Blackie" - The go-getter.
1991 LX 2.3 5 Speed Hatch - Family Mustang
1969 F-100 390 4 speed - Project Rustoleum

Summit Racing and Latemodel Restoration Supply have brought me this far, my imagination will bring me all the way.

In 1990, Ford desired to increase the sales and visibility of the Mustang convertible, now 4 years since the last major update. They introduced the Deep Emerald Jewel Green 5.0 LX convertible. This car became the basis on which the later limited edition convertibles were created.
All of these limited editions started life out as LX coupes (as all prodcutions convertibles were) and were sent to Car & Concepts to have the roofs removed and special white tops installed. All the cars had Preferred Equipment Package (245A) and the Special Edition Package (562) installed. The 562 package consisted of Deep Emerald Jewel Green metallic paint, color keyed body side moldings and mirrors, white leather Mustang GT style seats, white interior trim (dash, door panels, armrests, rear seat), and the Mustang GT's 15" turbine wheels(instead of the 10 hole LX wheels). The only other options were Automatic Transmission, rear axel ratio, and a engine block heater.
These limited edition Mustangs are sometimes called the "7-UP" cars. The color and option package originally came about for a co-promotion with 7-UP. As part of a planned $20 Million in prizes, 30 of these cars were to be given away following the NCAA Final Four championship in April, 1990. A heavy amount of promotional and advertising displays featuring the car were to be displayed nationwide. Unfortunatly the whole deal fell through and 7-UP never ended up promoting the cars, for what reason is still unknown. The 30 cars ended up going to 7-UP employees in an internal contest.
The most reputable estimate on how many of these cars were produced is 4103 with 261 of them built for export. Of those, 2743 came with automatic transmissions

is it worth 4300 to you. I would say only 3500 if its a 6 out of 10. And I think even 3k is still reasonable.

I just picked up a 7up mustang with 52000 miles. The only downside is the transmission is auto but I did only pay 3000. It is a fun car and that dark emerald green is beautiful. If I found the car you are talking about I would have gone after it. If it runs great and feels strong I would say go for it man.
