1979-1993 Mustang Hoods
In the late 1970s, Ford launched the Fox Body platform, which would be unmatched by anything that preceded it. In contrast to many full-size Fords, Fox Body Mustangs were the on the receiving end of a unibody chassis, with the intent of downsizing the vehicle. The Third Generation, was the longest era in the pony car’s five-decade-plus history, and Fox Body Mustangs have also resurged in popularity in recent years. Because Fox Body Mustangs are all over the roadway these days, many late-model owners have sought to distinguish their vehicles from the pack.
Attaching aftermarket fenders and spoilers will provide nice aesthetic touches, but wouldn’t it be great if you could increase your vehicle’s performance capabilities, while enhancing its appearance with one, single add-on? As it turns out, a new Fox Body hood can accomplish both of those goals in one-foul-swoop! Because they take up such a large place in a centralized location, the Fox Body hood is one of the very first things that people notice when your pony car rolls into town. Replacing your boring factory component with an aftermarket Fox Body hood is one of the easiest and most effective ways to give your car a facelift that will not go unnoticed by the masses.
Though they offer appearance benefits that very few body & sheet metal components can, Fox Body hoods are more than just for show. Fox Body Mustang hoods protect the Mustang engine and all of its surrounding components from outside materials, while providing easy access to the compartment. By concealing all of your vital engine parts with one large panel, Fox Body Mustang hoods also provide structural support for the entire front-end of the vehicle.
Because your Third Generation pony car is well over 25 years old, chances are that your original Fox Body hood has taken a beating from the elements and road debris over the years. Driving around with a beat-up Fox Body hood not only looks bad, but also presents a number of different safety risks. The best way to avoid any problems is to promptly replace your factory component with a new Fox Body hood.
