just look up the Kelly Blue Book values in your area, and go from there...there's lots out there, just have to make sure it wasn't abused.
I would love a notchback 5.0 for a project car but they never really made that many compared to the hatchback which out numbers the sedan 3-1 in sales figures

just did a quick search on a 1992 Mustang 5.0 Sedan, 75k miles, 5 sp, pw, pd, cruise, and leather...

excellent condition = $3515.00
1992 Ford Mustang - Private Party Pricing Report - Kelley Blue Book=

i would think this car would be pretty hard to find, and if found would probably go for a bit more than $3515...you would most likely have to have it shipped to you, unless you live in a high pop area in the south somewhere...

but if you could find one, with under 100k miles and in good shape, it would be an awesome daily driver...cheap to work on, cheap to upgrade, and loads of fun to drive! did i mention sexy as hell??

It's not a GT model or a Cobra, just a basic 5.0 Mustang. Light metallic blue in color.

However I'm not sure what the market is on these cars and I don't always trust what KBB or those sites say.
At $4500, I'd pass on it.

i'm with you on that...graduated in 1995. my first two cars were mustang gt's...my first was an 86 Gt, first year with fuel injection...my second was one of the cleanest 83 Gt's on the road, alpine white with a black wrap on the hood, 5 star hammer wheels (you know those where the shiznit back in the day)!!

all this stang talk is making me want to drop some cash on a clean early 90's 5.0 LX sedan...

I had a 1984 Mustang GT, which I bought used in late 1985. It had the 5.0 engine, with the 4-bbl carburator, and a T-top, which was rare, and it was red and black. I loved that car, and I put over 180,000 hard miles on it, and it was still running strong on the day I traded it in for a piece of junk 1990 Dodge Daytona in April of 1997. That was one decision I regretted.

One other thing I forgot to mention, my 1984 GT had the 4-speed manual transmission, which was also rare back then.

I only kept the Daytona for 3 years and I was glad to get rid of it.

AWW MAN!!! I miss my stangs more and more!! I was just looking online for another on the day before I posted here. I'm on a few Mustang boards, if I had the money I would get another one....or three. At least one notch and a newer GT hmm maybe a convertable one too.
