1988 Mustang Crate Engines and Cylinder Blocks

Crate Engines & Cylinder Blocks

Back in 1988, Ford manufactured Mustangs in two varieties: the LX and the GT. Each ‘Stang was designed to run like a dream, and they both offered drivers a fun, new way to experience an American muscle car. As part of Ford’s third generation of Mustangs, these bad boys are nearing 30 years on the road, and engines have come a long way since the 80s. If you own a 1988 Mustang, you may still have one of those reliable engines from the 1980s in your pony car. And if that’s the case, your engine is probably due for some maintenance — and maybe even a replacement. At CJ Pony Parts, you can find solutions to all of those needs with our selection of crate engines. These create engines are manufactured by some of the best-known vendors in the aftermarket industry, and they’re stress tested for power, quality and longevity so you can be sure you’re getting the best value for your dollar. Whether you want to gun it down your favorite stretch of highway or take your ‘Stang on the track, a crate engine is the best way to do it.
