Ford Mustang 1979-1993

Third Gen Mustang Engines and Options

A number of different engines were available for the third generation Mustang, some of which, including the 302 cu. in. Windsor V8, were carried over from the Mustang II. Other notable engines were a 2.3 L turbo-charged 4 cylinder, first introduced in 1979, but refined in 1984 for a limited-production SVO model. Around the same time, the Windsor V8, marketed as the 5.0 (despite having an engine displacement of only 4.9 L) started to become popular in performance tuner circles.

In 1981, a convertible option was offered for the first time in 7 years.

1987 saw a further redesign of the third generation Mustang, with the car adopting new exterior styling that would remain consistent for the next seven years — the longest a Mustang has gone without a significant exterior redesign.

One other notable development during the third generation Mustang's run was the creation of Ford's special vehicle team division and subsequent introduction in 1993 of the Mustang SVT Cobra.
