The Ford Mustang was released in third-generation form in 1979. It was bigger than its predecessor and was available as a coupe a notchback and as a convertible. The engine range comprised a 2.3-liter four-cylinder, a 2.8-liter V6 and a 4.9-liter V8. However, the V6 was dropped in short order, and a 2.3-liter turbo four installed. The engines drove through a four-speed manual transmission or a three-speed automatic. The 4.9-liter V8 was then replaced by a more economical 4.2, which was linked to the auto transmission only. The car’s biggest facelift came in 1983, when its four square headlights were replaced by fared in items. The convertible was also launched the same year.
