The 1987 Mustang was available in two models, LX and GT. The car came standard with the 88 hp 2.3 L four cylinder wither either a five-speed manual, or four-speed automatic transmission. The 5.0 L V-8 engine was optional, but was given a sequential electronic multipoint fuel injection system, and open-chamber cylinder heads, which brought it up to 225 hp. Both models were built with coil spring MacPherson struts in the front, and a four link coil spring suspension in the rear. The GT was upgraded with variable rate springs and gas-pressurized shocks and struts. The LX taillights were changed only slightly, but the GT was given louvered taillights. Both models lost the louvered rear quarter glass, and instead got a single piece of glass with the word "Mustang" across the bottom.
