The Fox platform that Ford used from 1978 to 1993 is probably one of, if not the best known platforms in the automotive world. It isn't everyday that even the most casual gearhead brings up a chassis code–that's usually reserved for the die-hard fans–but the Fox chassis, bolstered by the wild success and legendary status of the 1979-1993 Ford Mustang, bucks that trend. With any other Mustang, you have to spell out the year for someone to know what you are talking about...1964 2+2, 1971 Mach 1, 1997 SVT Cobra, 2004 Terminator, 2013 Shelby GT500, for example. But if you say "Fox Mustang", you only need to specify whether the car in question is or is not a "four-eye" (pre-1987) example. After that, it doesn't matter. It's the light, compact, and perfectly malleable little coupe or hatchback that can swallow up a V8 like nothing, can house a wicked turbocharged four-cylinder surprise, can be a corner-carver or a drag racer, or if you're really twisted can be a rally car. There is no end to the amount of customization for a Fox Body Mustang...it compares to the '32 Ford and the '55 Chevy in popularity.


But there wasn't just the Mustang and it's Mercury Capri twin on the platform. The original Fox chassis cars were the 1978-1983 Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr, each each housing several individual flavors like the Futura/Z-7 coupe, the "box top" cars, and even the rare Durango coupe-utility. There were the early "box" cars, like the Granada and the Thunderbird and Cougars, the aero versions of the Thunderbird, Cougar and Lincoln Mark VII, and the Ford LTD and Mercury Marquis sedans. There was everything from poverty-spec basic transportation cars with dog-dish hubcaps, plain vinyl bench seats and column shifted automatics to V8-powered, fully-loaded leather-lined coupes. There were police-spec cars, including the infamous SSP Mustang pursuit cars.

The biggest benefit to the Fox platform, though, is that just about every example is still very attainable. Even though values for Mustangs are on the rise, it doesn't take much work to find a buildable car, and even those in good, driving shape are still well within reach. Branch out from Mustangs and you will find that the pickings are still plentiful and that you might even find something you like better, whether it's the luxury of the Lincoln, the legroom and huge fuel tank of a Cougar XR-7, or the wind-cheating aerodynamic smoothness of the "Aero Bird" Thunderbird that is still the fastest NASCAR to date (Bill Elliott's Ford Thunderbird lapped Talladega Superspeedway's 2.66-mile track at an average speed of 212.809 MPH in 1987).
