How long will foxes be around

Just a random question I always think of this cause I have a 87 vert and I love it (still want a notch as well) but how long will it be easy to find replacement parts? Like the top frame and tops? Do they still manufacture these parts? And how easy too do body work cause it has a slight lean and the front bumper in between fog lights is broken

---------- Post added at 03:11 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:09 PM ----------

Also finding interior parts for the car, I want to make it basically new condition car

late model restoration carries ALMOST every nut and bolt for your car. and the parts are still cery plentiful.

Ok good, they still make the parts? Or is it just extra?

Me to. The one thing I wanted and couldn't find are the inside rear interior quarter panels. Or I call them armrest panel. That's the only major thing I needed that they don't make still.

Did you have to take out the assembly to fix anything? It looks like a two man job.

what assembly? the top itself?

if his frame is uneven im willing to bet its from the top being uneven, ripped or stretched.

i havent worked on the frame itself much though. so i guess it depends on what part of the frame is messed up if you need to take the top off or not.

I'm hoping they don't increase too fast in value. I'm hoping to restore one with my son in a few years.

Fox mustangs may run thin in original condition, but will never die!

My buddy rebuilt a fox 5.0 when I was in the navy. Brand new everything. Ending up with 650 rwhp. Only to have it stolen two weeks later after he had finished building it. That car was so sick to.
