Mustang in the winter

Asked by Sep 11, 2017 at 06:01 PM about the 2004 Ford Mustang GT Deluxe Convertible

Question type: General

I was looking to get a 2004 Mustang GT for
my first car. I live in Indiana, and I was
wondering how to make my Mustang
driveable in the winter. I've heard that
getting winter tires and adding weight in
the trunk help out. I just want to know if it
is possible to drive it in the winter.

Of course it is possible. Tires and weight in the trunk will help as will a good set of tire cables. Take it easy on snow and ice and if your ABS does not work, fix it.

Yes you can drive it in the winter, back in my hot rod days I ran mine in the winter, I put studded tires on all 4 wheels, 2 90 lb. bags of concrete mix in the trunk one as close as possible over each rear wheel, and kept the fuel tank full as possible. Your greatest challenge will be keeping warm, convertibles loose a lot of heat in the winter plus they are not designed to stay wet 24/7 so I hope you have some cover or a garage to park it in so it can get somewhat dry. A small electric heater might be a good idea for inside after you park for the night set on low. That's what I did when it got down into the twenties. I also had a block heater for the engine but only used that when it dropped into teens and lower. It got cold where I was at that time in the winter.

Snow tires are key. I ran Blizzacks on an extra set of rims on my Foxbody every winter.
