    As much confusion still exists with U.S. and Canadian market Early Fox oddities, twice as much exists when it comes to Ford de Mexico during that same era. FourEyedPride members discovered years ago that the Mustangs from this time period ...

    Mexican Mustangs are a unique hybrid breed of early Fox assembled in Cuatitlan Izcalli, Mexico.

    The coupes were composed of Mustang shells with non-air dam Capri front bumper covers and tail light lenses. The hatchbacks, bubble glass and all, are Capri bodies, but there are some with Capri front bumper covers (again, non-air dam), and some with Mustang front bumper covers. They all wear the oval and the Mustang nameplate.
    We are always on the look-out for more images, information or literature regarding these cars, whether it be from enthusiasts, owners or Ford employees ...

    Believe it or not, not ALL of the early Foxes made it to the UK by way of US service members. Many were exported, converted to right-hand drive and sold brand new.

    Mercury Capris seem to be exceptionally rare, understandable given the Ford Capri's production and sales availability continuing on through the early Fox years, but the early Fox Mustangs seem to have prospered. FourEyedPride is fortunate enough to have a correspondent in England, Mr. Don Hardy, who ...

    After reading "Owning a Four-eyed in France ," you may have some additional questions regarding the Mustangs exported to France and the rest of Europe. The following is a Q&A exchange between the webmaster and Frederic.
     

    Q: So the only Foxes sold there officially by Ford were the 1979s? And you think there were only 400 of them?

    A:Yes '79 and only in 2.3l Turbo. I had this information from a friend, founder of the Mustang Club de France, owner of one of the oldest running Mustang (VIN #145, car of movie "Le Gendarme de St-Tropez" and many french video clips and soaps), a guy who has one of the highest knowledge on Mustangs in France ... I have no official information from Ford France, they send me back to my club

    What is the story on your particular car? What has been done to it that is necessary for legalization in France, and do you have pics?

    My car was sold new in Switzerland in Nov, 5th 1979, licensed Dec, 22th 1979 ... I guess it was a show-room car as it had all graphics installed and was sold pretty late (i haven't tried to contact it's original owner, but I have his address in the Ford Service manual, so maybe one day when I'll ...

    We have a new and very rare brochure in our Factory Literature gallery, it appears to be a 1983 model year (perhaps early 1984?) brochure that covers both the Ford Mustang and Mercury Capri available for sale in Japan. The ...

    1985 Mustang low-miles stock cat-back

    Just went and looked at OE quality exhaust kits. It's going to cost around $440 to replace the catback with a near OE quality kit.

    A few more

    keep in mind the car is currently a roller. No motor or trans so the exhaust is tied up but hanging a bit wonky at the moment.

    Watch the amps. The factory wiring is only capable to 65 amps. More than that can start a fire if it's not rewired to bypass the trouble spots
