MB: The Fox-bodied Mustang had a bad reputation but Ford believed in that car to the point that it never made one improvement to it from 1986 to 1989. Now it’s an icon. I found this one at the back of a car lot and could see how this could be a youngster’s first muscle car. We made every modification possible without losing its essence – polycarbs, fuel injection, geared down the rear end, all to make it faster off the line. The test drive was on a drag strip against one of the world’s greatest dragsters.
