1980 Ford Mustang Specs

Posted 4/11/2016 by Phillip Perez

Do you ever find yourself searching for the factory specs on your 1980 Ford Mustang? If so you have definitely come to the right place!

Not many things changed in 1980 with the Fox Body Mustang. The Cobra kept the ground effects from the '79 pace car and Ford added a 4.2L V8 while dropping the 5.0L and 2.8L V6 from the previous year. This 4.2L V8 was a scaled-down version of the iconic 5.0L!
