I know with the 87-93 Fox Mustangs, the most popular interior color was Black, while the least popular was the “Porno” Red or the White interiors.

Now that years have passed, does anyone on here have a 87-93 Fox with the original factory RED interior with a Strawberry, Electric, Maroon or Red exterior? If so, can you post up pics?

Do you like your Red interior?

Also, at what point was the 87-93 Red interior ALL red (this includes the steering wheel, complete dash, and door panels) where there was absolutely NO charcoal/black appointments?

My ‘90 is Wild Strawberry and came with the Scarlet interior. It originally had low back front seats, but those have been swapped out for ‘85/86 GT seats with ‘83 netted halos. When redoing the interior I threw a lot of black in to tone down the red. The black carpet helped the most.

Red gets looked down upon, but it has grown on me. I like a black interior in the aero cars, but it isn’t as special in my eyes anymore. They all look the same. I spent 11 years with a black interior in an ‘83 GT, so I’ve been there done that. The cars with a different color (like blue....) interior now catch my attention.

It was 1992 and 1993 which featured the full red interior, including the steering wheel.

92-93 also featured an ALL-BLUE interior as well, where everything was blue. I think it was limited to the 4 cyl only though.


Anyway, my car originally had the scarlet red interior. I wasn't a fan at all at the time. 90-93 Mustangs had the black interior, and back in the early 2000's I came across a parts car with a mint black interior in if for $250 (would be unheard of today) and that was the end of red interior for me. However, now 20 years later, I ironically have a thing for a clean red tweed interior. I really like the 87-89 GT seats mostly, so seeing a nice, clean stock tweed interior these days catches my eye.

I know adding bits of black here and there is the latest trend, but I actually like it all red. There are even some late model 2005+ red seats that look good swapped in. I've seen the fronts added, and the rear seat recovered to match and it looked very nice.

Black interior photographs well, but I could list a few practical reasons why i'm not a fan. I won't be trading it out however.

I like the red interior but with a different outside color. This is a 89 with the outside painted a medium grey from a newer ford. The exterior was red from factory but I don't have any pics.

throw some black seats in there and it will look absolutely awesome. red and blue both suffer from just a massive overload of one color and adding black to it makes it look day and night.

can't believe the factory didn't think of that instead of just taking a massive red and blue diarrhea dump to those interiors. and i somewhat regret converting my car to all black, but that was before i saw a car with the perfect red/black mixture.

my '90 5.0 had a blue interior although it wasn't as bright/loud blue that the 4 banger had

I had to dig waaaaaaay back into my archives to find some pics of my hybrid red/black swap. This wasn't intentional, but just my hesitation (at the time) of pulling a dash.

Forgive the poor picture quality, but this was 1999 or so. I was 18 at the time, so 5" monster tach on an AOD was a requirement :)

Fortunately my interior looks nothing like this now. I did have to add some color though to break up the all-black theme I had going on

Here's a photo of a red interior in a red exterior GT. Hard to actually see the red exterior though. I think the 1989 tweed seats do make the look though.
