1987 Ford Mustang Spec Explorer
The 1987 Mustang came in the standard three body styles of a 2-door coupe, 3-door hatchback and a convertible. The GT optioned hatchback continued to be available but the SVO was gone. Continuing the 1986 reduction in engine offerings, 1987 saw only two: a new 225hp, high output, 5.0 liter, V8; and the 90hp, 3.2 liter, inline 4-cylinder. For the first time in eight years the body was redesigned a bit by removing the solid louvered panels behind the rear side quarter windows on the coupe and hatchback; placing a molded rear wing on the GT hatchbacks; and adding flush mounted, body molded headlights. Much of the front end redesign came from the removal of the 1940 to 1983 governmental regulations on the use of discrete, self contained, standard headlamps. The grille was also modified by making the GT's grille solid and the base LX's grille open with the ford logo suspended on a horizontal integrated, color matched bar. Ford didn't expect these changes would increase interest and was short parts for an estimated 10,000 cars by years end. In 1987 ASC McLaren started offering custom convertibles made from 2-door coupes.
