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.
