Project 55: Bill’s 1993 Mustang Cobra BuildLast Updated July 21, 2021 | Andrew Boyle
Building a Fox Body is no small feat. Especially when you’re on a time crunch to get the car done by Mustang Week. Bill & the talented team at CJ’s worked hard to take Project 55 to an entirely new level with a ton of awesome Fox Body parts available right here at CJ’s!
The Fox Body was produced from 1979-1993, the longest stretch for any Mustang generation. It earned its “Fox Body” nickname because it was built on the Fox platform. These Mustangs are well-known for being a modder’s dream, and with just a few upgrades they can hold their own with more modern ponies.
The Fox Body Mustang carried 4-lug wheels which were very common for compact cars in that era. Unfortunately, most aftermarket wheel options are offered only in 5-lug patterns. This CJ's guide shows you how to upgrade from a 4 lug pattern to a 5 lug pattern, opening the door for many more aftermarket wheel options.
Swapping a Coyote engine into a Fox Body Mustang is a great way to get 420 horsepower in a car that weighs less than 3,000 pounds. Putting a new engine in a car involves swapping out a few more pieces than just the engine though. From the transmission to the exhaust, these are some of our recommendations for what you should look at to have a successful Coyote Swap. Put a little Coyote in your Fox and get the ride of your life.
