1979 Mustang Engine


The 1979 Mustang represented a drastic change in design from previous Mustang generations, but that didn’t put a damper on its popularity and success. Chosen as the pace car for the 1979 Indy 500, this new generation Mustang apparently made a good impression. In fact, by appealing to a new generation of Mustang customers, Ford sold over 360,000 Mustangs in 1979 – about 160,000 more than their 1978 model. More than 35 years later, this third generation Mustang continues to be popular among Mustang enthusiasts and hobbyists. However, there’s no denying that parts of your Fox Body may be in need of repair – including your 1979 Mustang engine.
