    Recent years have shown an increase in the number of vintage Early Fox race cars participating in vintage racing. This stands to reason as enough years have passed that our beloved Foxes are becoming vintage special-interest cars. Various race cars, or at least some of their parts, have started to surface here and there after having seemingly disappeared over the years. Often overlooked is the fact that as soon as Early Foxes were being produced, they were being raced in a wide variety of series all over the world. Fast Four Eyes were a common sight at nearly any track event.

    We don't have any additional information on this 1979 IMSA Ford Mustang, but its flares certainly resemble that of the 1980 IMSA Mustang. All we know is what this video and other similar videos offer in the caption: it's the 1979 Polito Ford IMSA Mustang. We'll try to hunt this car down and find out details in the future. This is a great looking, great sounding car. It is getting some proper workout time on the track and we're always happy to see such a thing.

    This is a brief summary of the major principles on which FourEyedPride (FEP) is based. More in-depth discussion of these principles can be found on the message board and soon in a series of editorials written by FEP Administration.

    FEP promotes the preservation of the identity of each and every 79-86 Mustang and Capri. Many modifications can be done to a vehicle without changing its identity. This means we believe a Capri should look like a Capri, an EFI 2.3 turbocharged car should retain its turbo four, an early Fox Mustang should not be made to look like a later Fox Mustang, and Ford powerplants should reside between the shock towers.

    FEP actively discourages and condemns the parting out and willful destruction of complete, running, and/or easily repaired cars. As these cars continue to disappear, our chances for the aftermarket to take on the reproduction of badly needed parts will continue to decline.

    FEP welcomes owners and enthusiasts of bone stock base models as well as wildly modified race cars. We are neither a group consisting solely of sticklers for factory correct restorations nor powertrain elitists.

    FEP does not condone bumper cover swaps making later (87-93/aero nose) appear to be 86 and earlier models, just as we do not accept earlier cars made to look like 87-later models. These swaps do not keep 79-86 cars on the road, and to accept swaps in one direction and not the other would be hypocritical as well as counter-productive. They often take hard-to-find parts out of the pool of availability for cars in need of them. We are about more than just the bumper covers. We are about the cars from this particular era of Fox.

    FEP welcomes owners of all early Fox models, and we intend to include them in our coverage. These cars are: 78-83 Fairmont & Zephyr, 83-86 LTD & Marquis, 80-88 Thunderbird & Cougar, 82-87 Continental, 84-92 Mark VII and 81-82 Granada. Enthusiasts who do not own an early Fox are also welcome.

    The opinions of FEP members do not necessarily express the official stance of FEP on various issues. Only FEP Administration speaks for FEP.

    While we do not expect every member of FEP to agree with these and other tenets supported by FEP, we do expect these tenets to be respected by all who participate on our forums.

    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 ...
