Hey guys. I have a 1992 2.3L convertible.

Tomorrow I am going to get a 1989 5.0 Convertible.
My mom found one for $1000 bucks and all it needs is a paint job. ( getting it from a friend)

I can't wait. I finally get to use the 5.0 forums. Lol. I'll have pictures up tomorrow when I get it. =]

I asked the same thing about my 2.3L.

Does anyone know what the stock horse power is on a Stock 1989 5.0 convertible and what about the top speed?

Thanks guys.

SO HAPPY! :shiny:

$1000? You got a steal. Congrats on your future new ride. :bigthumbsup

I'm pretty sure the 5.0's have 225 hp.
Yeah 225 and 300 tire smokin pounds of torque. :gringreen
Thanks guys.
I'll have pictures up as soon as I get her home.

What's the top speed on a stock 1989 Mustang 5.0 LX
Not that you should even be trying that on a public road, but they've been tested around 145 mph. Probably a little less due to being a convertible.
Congrats on your new ride
Congrats! And welcome to the big leagues. Nothing beats the sound of a Ford small block and the wind in your ears. :D:D:D

Sorry, it's been awhile since ive been on.
I went to look at the 5.0L and it had a loud nock and it ran rough.

So i'm sticking with the car that's in my sig.

If it sounds to good to be true it always is, at least you have a stang and a great doner for a 5.0 someday :bigthumbsup
