1979 Mustang Parts

As the 2nd generation was discontinued, it was replaced by the new 1979 Mustang, which featured a completely redesigned personality while still being true to its heritage. While the Mustang II remains a somewhat controversial topic, the new Foxbody was well-received and sales of the new pony were very strong, at 369,936 for the year. The popularity of these cars has only increased over time.

Compared to the previous generation, the overall vehicle size was noticeably larger, giving driver and passengers more room and creating more trunk space and a larger engine compartment. Despite this, it was also lighter and more aerodynamic, contributing to less drag and higher fuel efficiency. The interior was also completely redesigned and refined for a more comfortable driving experience. The new Mustang received three suspension offerings, each with specially-tuned parts and unique tires.

The engines were carried over from the previous generation, with the base four-cylinder, V6, and 302 V8 from the Mustang II all still on the menu. However, a new turbocharged 2.3 liter was introduced on the new Cobra trim, the first time a Mustang featured forced induction. The Ghia trim was also still available and served as a more luxurious and European-inspired cruiser.
