1987 Ford Mustang LX ('Ol Yeller)

Photo of a 1987 Ford Mustang LX ('Ol Yeller)


Inherited the car from my grandma who owned it since before I was born. She drove it just like a grandma, so it's in really good condition for being a 22 year old car with 198,000 miles. It has held up on me really well except for a few minor problems like battery, starter, alt.. Small stuff that everyone runs into. I haven't done anything to make it better except some new wheels. I plan to fully restore it and drop a 302 into it once I graduate from college.


It's a 22 yr old 2.3L with 198K miles. Haven't hooked it up to the dyno so I don't know how many horses it puts out or the torque. I can say this, it's 0-60 is about as fast as you would expect from an old inline four. Fastest I've had it up to was 100.. Anything after about 80 feels like you're driving your death bed. Vibration is awful in this car.

Factory Options

Power door locks that don't work.. A/C that doesn't work...... thats about it really
