The Mustang's third generation ran from 1979-1993, the longest stretch for any Mustang generation. Because this Mustang ran on the Fox platform, it's earned the nickname "Fox Body Mustang." These Mustangs are well-known for being a modders dream, and with just a few upgrades these Mustangs can hold their own.
The Mustang Ghia was Ford's attempt at creating a luxury Mustang during the 1973 gas crisis and available as a luxury package option on the second-generation Mustangs. While the Mustang Ghia saw a limited run in the USA, Ford offered the Ghia trim in Europe on most popular models until 2010.
More likely to be identified by exterior features that are not present than are present is the Mustang GTS. Favoring power over luxury, the Mustang GTS featured an HO 5.0L pushrod V8 engine, dual exhaust system, and 5-speed manual transmission. In 1996 Ford eliminated the GTS designation and replaced it with the 248A package.
The first Mustang Cobra Jet was produced in 1968. Though Ford only reported 335 horsepower, actual estimates are much higher. The 1968 Cobra jet was an NHRA champion.

In 2018, a second run was produced to celebrate the 50th anniversary.
