Four-Eyed Fever: Goodguys Commissions a Beefy ’79 Fox Mustang

Muscle-car purists tend to decry anything built after that year as down on performance and less than classically styled. But 1972 was 45 years ago, classic muscle cars are often spendier to get into than later iron, and with shows like the ’80s and 90s themed Radwood popping up, snaring a new generation of enthusiasts demands newer machines. So Goodguys adjusted, raising its model-year cutoff to 1987. To celebrate the move, Goodguys dug up a clean, first year Fox Mustang, relieved it of its turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder, and stuffed in a 5.0 liter Ford Performance Aluminator crate engine.
