Air conditioning was an option so if it wasn't ordered it wasn't ordered. Will sell at any price, looking to get it moved down the road to someone that could get some use out of it. Neither provides particularly good lateral support, and their softness promises some muscle miseries on extended trips. . This third generation 1979 Ford Mustang was pulled from a barn recently. Any pics of your car from back in the day? Does anybody know how many san jose cars are built vs dearborn? There are pictures of the interior, but only from outside. The car is black on black with orange graphics.
The building was broken into back when scrap prices were high and the radiator was cut out of the car. The 1979 Mustang was a huge seller— 369,000 copies. This site is great with such knowledgeable people!!!!! This engine is a little rough and buzzy as it goes about its business of not producing much power. I had some extra money and it looked professional. The 6 seemed so long in the engine compartment, it looked like it was touching the fan shroud and the firewall at the same time. I got one from quality auto specialties off of ebay, super nice harness, only thing i didn't like about it is that the fans run all the time on it, so i have to put a toggle in between with a relay.
I read somewhere that 101,000 were built in san jose of total mustangs produced, is that true? It had just a plain 2. In 1979 they were standard on the Cobra and optional on all other models. The car came with deluxe interior vinyl with cloth inserts, factory console, but came with a 4-way adjustable seat track for the driver. Standard is standard, which in this case is Ford's version of MacPherson struts in front, a four-link system in the rear, and standard-rate springs and shocks. I saw you got urs from there seem like it was straight forward for you lol.
So this car is indeed interesting to me, because…. I didn't know how rare this was. I just wish it had the temp sensor stuff for the electric fans to shut them on and off. However, for less than a grand, this car could be one fantastic drag car. It came to life in the normal five-year gestation period. I selected the interior and exterior colors, and added the Ghia package. That is connected to a four-speed manual transmission.
I am descent with wiring, i could have made it myself, but would have took a lot of time and I needed that car out of here. This is a turbo-4 car with a 4-speed transmission. Very pleased, but did not get aluminum front and rear bumpers, I will have to check into it more when it gets warmer out, but i do have a set of aluminum front and rears that are going to go on the car when I paint it. The new owner of the property needs to do this, whoever buys the car will have a much more difficult time getting a title in their name. Steve R I love Fox Bodies, especially the four-eye 79-86 versions. This body style is very desirable for anyone deciding to build a race car, particularly grudge style cars. Keep hanging around the site, you'll love it here! I am the original owner of a 79 six cylinder coupe, restored to stock condition.
I think i will order my marti report here this monday or so, then i will post when i get it!!! The turbo engine had many issues. While the V-6 isn't a tire-burner, it does have respectable power with relatively good fuel efficiency , and it isn't a heavy hunk of cast iron, like the V-8, sitting up front to screw up weight distribution and therefore handling. Thanks, I read your story how you talked to the original owner!!!!! Every Mustang comes with complete instrumentation, and although there is a tendency toward tacky in the style of the numerals on the dial faces, the lettering is legible and the dials are well placed. A friend of mine used to drag race a Mustang Turbo with some success. The 4-way adjustable driver-side seat was an option only in '79 and '80, and not a lot of owners report having it.
I should be doing work right now. I got the distinct impression there hadn't been so many smiling project engineers around Ford since the LeMans and Trans Am racing programs went away. There is no title, but there should be a way for the owner of the property to process a lien on the car, if someone wants to get it on the road again, the seller will need to be involved in that. I will post some pics of that too on the picture pages. I assume you are using t-5 with it too. This beat down dime a dozen Fox body is interesting? A fun fact about the car is the 2.
. It's all ancient history now. Description for Ford Mustang 1979 1979 Ford Mustang 2. An optional console contains a non-lockable storage bin and an Accord-like Graphic Display that reveals information about various bulbs and fluid levels. Compare that to today where you have two or three models which each have a handful of stand alone options, six or eight exterior colors mostly versions of black, white, silver, and gray , and a couple interior choices. Also this car does not have the rear speakers cut on the rear interior panels.
I show it at Mustang Club of America events. Obviously the bugs had not been worked out. They were not part of the Ghia package. The V-8 won't take you back to the old muscle-car days, but it'll make you think about them. This may or may not be the right car for that swap. The controls for wipers, washers, lights, horn, and turn signals are on column stalks and easy to reach and operate. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Steve R There is always a process to get rid of a car that has been abandoned on private property. Bob, the first dealer I ever worked for had one of these. This is an versatile platform. The five-liter V-8 available for the Mustang is a torquey beast with considerable—for 1979—horsepower: something around 150. I'm just going to put in a switch, i'd rather have that anyway on them. They're still in awesome condition.
