: 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.
