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.

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.
