the body style thats it.. the gt has a body kit, cool spoiler, and fox lights and the lx is just the normal style but the lx comes in coupe as well..

not sure on all the differences...

GT....this will have the ground effects and foglights, i believe larger drums in the rear, a larger sway bar and maybe a little different suspension...correct me if i'm wrong...

LX.... no ground effects, just looks like a hatchback mustangs, probably cheaper insurance

you could get all the ground effects and front and rear bumpers, that would make it look like a GT but i'm not sure it would be worth the time and money, those parts are not cheap, if you want a GT you may be better off just buying one...

There are GT specific things too, like the warning lights for low fuel, coolant, washer fluid, and low oil level. GT suspension is harsher, even though it's supposed to be the same as the 5.0 LX.
You could convert an LX into looking like a GT but you'd also have to convert the door guards to GT as well, they're around $150 apiece.

As far as I can tell between my buddy's LX and my GT is the bodykit along with the interior, with the exception that the guy my friend bought the car off of had some things custom ordered.

I agree, If you want a gt then you should buy a gt.. converting a lx into a gt is prolly gonna be more expensive in the end and depending on who does it might not look as good.. thats just my 2 cents

Interior on the GT is much nicer, you basically getting the 4cyl interior on the LX, horrible seats and trim, but the lx is a little lighter than the GT, but the difference is minimal........

Why would you want to ruin a prefectly good LX......:gringreen:gringreen:gringreen
+++++++1! The LX's also came with those sexy exhaust tips! Put that in your GT pipe and smoke it :bigthumbsup!

You could order the LX with the same interior as the GT's, I believe you could even order leather if you chose so.

The SVO and the '93 Cobra "R" were 5-lug. All others were 4-lug.

LX all the way!

Except for some cosmetic exterior differences, the cars are the same. The GT is more boy racer and the LX is cleaner looking.

The LX is a little lighter because it doesn't have all the ground effects and will therefore be a little faster.:bigthumbsup

My favorite thing about the LX is the tailpipes look tough. The turndowns on GTs are weak looking and barely visible.
