1979 Ford Mustang Parts & Performance

1979 Ford Mustang ('79)
Based on the new Fox platform, which had previously been used on vehicles such as the Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr, the 1979 Mustang represented a totally new design and direction for Ford. Other than the long nose and short deck that have always identified the Pony car, the 1979 Mustang was a complete redesign.

The Foxbody was characterized by its larger windows and "greenhouse", in addition to a lower beltline and more aerodynamic overall shape. Despite being slightly larger in every dimension than its predecessor, the Mustang II, the 1979 was actually 200 lbs lighter. Looking for restoration or aftermarket parts for your 79 Mustang?
