-1979 Mustang was the pace car replica. A special run of 10,478 Indy pace car Mustangs were assembled to commemorate the specially prepared Mustang chosen to lead the pack at the Indy 500. Although the actual pace cars (of which three were built) were all powered by higher-output-than-stock 5.0 V-8s, the replicas could be had either with a 132hp 2.3 turbocharged four-cylinder or a 140hp 5.0 V-8 with a two-barrel carburetor. We'd recommend the 5.0 V-8 rather than the 2.3 four-cylinder on a car that is loaded with options. The four-cylinder had reliability issues and was pulled from the Mustang line in 1981.

-Besides the pace car, the performance Mustang in 1979 was the Cobra. It was equipped the same way as the pace car-with either the 5.0 or 2.3 turbo.

-There were only 47,568 built with the 5.0, and most of these, sad to say, are gone.




I will continue through the years on each post.. of to gather 1980 Info

Hey Saleen,

I'd be interested in working with you to expand the history section of our site to include the information you are posting here.

-There were 182,552 Mustangs built in 1981.

-The venerable 5.0 engine was withdrawn and replaced with a 4.2 V-8 (255 ci) rated at 115 hp (wonder what the rear-wheel horsepower was on that turkey). This anemic version of the V-8 is also the low point for Mustang-besides sporting a two-barrel intake, a single exhaust, and an automatic transmission, it had tiny intake/exhaust ports with 1.68-/1.46-inch valves. You can say the Cobra was still around, but with a 115hp 4.2 as the "hot" V-8, it was severely lacking in venom.

-Ford was planning to concentrate on the turbocharged 2.3 four-cylinder-rather than the V-8-as the new performance engine, but the 2.3 had so many problems, Ford was forced to withdraw it in 1981. This author has written books on the Fox-body cars, yet the only source of photographs for them is Ford Motor Company. Not a single car has been found, yet.

Re: Production Numbers

Check out the link I posted....like Brent said, we would like to updated anything we might be missing from year to year. Just figured I would give you a heads up before you just posted up a bunch of data since we have a section all set up with some of the data you are posting.

Ahh never checked. That tab... I need to travel around the site more than just the forums I guess.


Only reason I do that is because I know traffic helps Brent make $$$ with adds. And more info = more traffic and of course I am bored at work, So I learn alot about my passion

Re: Production Numbers

I believe that the tabs at the top are also google searched, so if we are missing any data that you know of...let's get it updated.

Re: Production Numbers

As a side note to all this great info. I went through all the years last night in my infinite boredom. And found quite a few mistakes in the writing. Not in the information, but in the words. Spelling, years, etc. Not a huge deal, just figured it would look better and make more sense to the novice if they didn't see something like "1944 mustang" lol. Again, i'm not ragging on anyone, just pointing it out.
