Ford Mustang (3rd gen) 1979-1993

Third generation (1979–1993)

The 1979 Mustang was based on the longer Fox platform (initially developed for the 1978 Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr). The interior was restyled to accommodate four people in comfort despite a smaller rear seat. Body styles included a coupé, (notchback), hatchback, and convertible. Available trim levels included L, GL, GLX, LX, GT, Turbo GT (1983–84), SVO (1984–86), Cobra (1979–81; 1993),Cobra R (1993),and Ghia.

The third generation mustang had two different body styles. From 1979 to 1986 the car had a triangle shaped front clip and four headlights, known by enthusiasts as "4 Eyes." Then in the 1987 to 1993 model years, the front clip had a more round shaping known as the "aero" style. Also in 1986 Ford introduced EFI (electronic fuel injection) into the cars instead of the previous carbureted engines. Other changes for the 1986 models included an upgraded 8.8 rear end and which was equipped with four "Quad" shocks to improve handling and acceleration.

In response to slumping sales and escalating fuel prices during the early 1980s, a new Mustang was in development. It was to be a variant of the Mazda MX-6 assembled at AutoAlliance International in Flat Rock, Michigan. Enthusiasts wrote to Ford objecting to the proposed change to a front-wheel drive, Japanese-designed Mustang without a V8 option. The result was a major facelift of the existing Mustang in 1987, while the MX-6 variant became the 1989 Ford Probe.

Are these on anyone's list?
But this one is the 25th anniversary edition.
And isn't that a steering wheel that is also used in a RangeRover ?

Considering the Mustang II that they were replacing, I'm sure they were a huge improvement. Damning with faint praise, perhaps...
