The 4-Eye Fox Body Mustang

The classic Fox Body Mustang started life in 1979 on the new Fox platform. This new platform was much more sleek than the previous Mustang II, but borrowed some of its look from European styling, making it less like the traditional Mustang of the past. Ford shaved the extra weight making this Fox platform 200lbs lighter!
