With an oil embargo looming, and new federal emissions standards being implemented, Ford’s designers went back to the drawing board with the Mustang, resulting in most of the 1974 Ford Mustang parts being redesigned. In fact, the new 1974 Mustang parts combined to shorten the car by 19 inches and made it lighter by 490 pounds. The car’s platform was based on the smaller Pinto and the new 74 Mustang parts utilized many aspects of European automotive design, resulting in much greater refinement and more cutting edge technology. Possibly the biggest change to 1974 Ford Mustang parts was the two brand new engines, which included a four cylinder and a V-6, both firsts for the Mustang. Due to the smaller engines, 1974 Mustang parts produced much less power and performance than in previous years, though it did get much better fuel economy. Other “firsts” for 74 Mustang parts included pull-up door handles, rack-and-pinion steering, and the relocation of the gas cap to the rear quarter panel. Sales exploded, with 385,993 being sold.
