Blue-collar auto revolutions don't begin with expensive cars, and no car has packed the financially efficient performance punch of the 5.0 Mustang. Even as late as the '91 and '92 the real-world tariff on 5.0 LX Mustang hatches didn't exceed $15,000. The lowest we ever heard, albeit secondhand, was a new 5.0 LX coupe out the dealer's door for a few dollars less than $13,000! Convertibles were typically $4,000 more. It helped to forego air conditioning, a sunroof, or leather.
