The Ford Mustang Convertible

Is there anything more American than a Ford Mustang convertible? Mustang convertible drivers enjoy a level of appreciation and respect among car enthusiasts, and many treat their Mustangs similar to how Harley Davidson owners treat their bikes – like the collectible classics they are. Many Mustang enthusiasts can tell the difference between each year’s design changes dating all the way back to the Mustang’s inception, and, depending on the year, even a Mustang convertible in less than perfect condition can be extremely valuable. While Mustangs are powerful and unique, they are fun and simple to work on, and most parts are relatively easy to find.



Ford has consistently improved upon the Mustang over the years, and the 2016 Ford Mustang GT convertible is a true work of art. The V8 Mustang (the only one in good conscience we can recommend for true performance) boasts over 420 horsepower with 390 lb.-ft. of torque to the rear tires. The interior of the Mustang has been completely redesigned, and the convertible top boasts improved noise reduction technology with a large back window for optimal visibility. Raising and lowering the new Mustang’s convertible top takes seconds and is fully automated – aside from two header latches. The 2016 Mustang convertible top uses Ford’s Z-fold mechanism to store the convertible top in the well and sacrifices minimal trunk space in order to better accommodate storage of the convertible top. The convertible top locks to the car and windows using specially designed rubber seals, and the windows automatically slightly lower when opening or closing the top to help the seals properly connect. All of these features give Mustang convertible drivers plenty to celebrate and guarantees that the strength of the convertible top is able to match the power of the Mustang’s V8 engine.

From rich CEOs to the common working man, the Ford Mustang holds a place in the hearts of car lovers everywhere and is one of the most powerful and well-known symbols of American freedom. Mustang convertible drivers enjoy the best Ford has to offer and take the maintenance and restoration of their cars with extreme care. Few car manufacturers have been able to so perfectly blend power, performance, style and comfort the way Ford has been able to do, which is why the Ford Mustang has been the flagship vehicle for Ford since the beginning.
