The third-generation Mustang was produced by Ford Motor Company from 1978 to 1993. Built on Ford’s widely used Fox platform, it evolved through a number of sub-models, trim levels, and drivetrain combinations during its production life. It underwent updates for 1987, and for a time seemed destined for replacement with a rebadged import before company executives were swayed by consumer opinions. Enthusiasts group the generation into two segments: the 1979-1986 cars, with their quad headlight arrangement, and the 1987-1993 cars, with their “no-grille” (aero) front fascia styling.
This 1993 Mustang is a perfect example and representation of the popular platform that is used in drag racing very successfully.
