1998 Ford Mustang Overview
Source: CarGurus

...The 1998 Ford Mustang had few changes from the 1996 Mustang and 1997 Mustang.
The Saleens were so close to one another that many refer to the car as the "1997-1998 Saleen
."The GT did manage to find an extra 10 horsepower somewhere, moving from 215 to 225 with a similar 4.6-liter V8...

...It's a neat package, folks. Kudos to the Ford employees who voted against shooting the horse. 1998 Mustang GT Convertible Complaints: The GT convertible, which weighs 3,396 pounds, feels heavy and somewhat awkward at low speeds and lacks the crispness of something as tight and light as a Porsche Boxster. Praise: It'll outrun the Boxster and almost anything else at highway speeds, though such competitive behavior is expressly forbidden by law. Suffice it to say that the Mustang can run. Head-turning quotient: A bona fide neck snapper, especially with the top down. Impressive. Ride...

...The seats sit fairly high, giving drivers an outstanding view of the road; the dashboard has a nice two-toned, double bubble layout that is nicely textured; the gauges and controls are easy to view and manipulate; and the front bucket seats offer great lateral support. We won't dwell too much on the backseat, because no one in their right mind buys a sports car for rear-seat accommodations. As you have undoubtedly read, the Mustang Cobra is a very driver-friendly car, plenty of power yet very easy to navigate around town and with a pretty forgiving ride on the freeways. We like its lively...

...Speaking of friendly, we love the Mustang's interior, and think that it is the main reason that the Stang sells more models than Camaro and Firebird combined. The seats sit fairly high, giving drivers an outstanding view of the road; the dashboard has a nice two-toned, double bubble layout that is nicely textured; the gauges and controls are easy to view and manipulate; and the front bucket seats offer great lateral support. We won't dwell too much on the back seat, because no one in their right mind buys a sports car for rear seat room. As you have undoubtedly read, the Mustang is a very...

...The heavily contoured front bucket seats provide good lateral support for vigorous driving, but the seat backs are cu rved in such a way that the headrests cannot be adjusted up close to your head. The leather trim is both comfortable and aesthetically appealing. Putting the top down is a snap, which is great because that encourages open driving at every chance, and why have a convertible if you don't drive with the top down? Aside from the heavy clutch and tiny back seat, the other major complaint centers on the outdated stereo which requires way too much attention to use. This is one of the...

...Inside, the SVT Cobra has white-faced gauges and sport bucket seats that were covered in black leather in our test car, which was painted Bright Atlantic Blue, a new color for 1998. While the seats have good lateral support, the backrest never quite felt right to me because the upper part of the seat seemed too far from my neck and shoulders. The rest of the interior is basic Mustang, and it is starting to show its age. The radio is due for replacement because it uses an old, small-button design. The cupholders are not very convenient. The back seat is small, but that is par for most muscle...

...The snakes drew lots of glances from those who appeared to be dreaming about what a chrome Cobra would look like hanging around their neck. Get a car cover or make friends with a welder. Not only will Ford limit output, but Cobra also comes only with a smooth-operating 5-speed manual, which delivers 17 m.p.g. city/25 m.p.g. highway. But you do have a choice of closed or convertible top. We tested the drop top, which could have been a bit more finely tuned and user-friendly. Unlatch the levers from the header, hit the power-down button and the top motors out of the way. Hit the power-up button...
