Coupe

Hatchback

Convertible

The 1987 Mustang was available in three standard body styles: a 2-door coupe, 3-door hatchback, and a convertible. The GT optioned hatchback continued to be available, but the SVO was no longer offered. In 1987, engine offerings were reduced to two: a new 225hp, high output, 5.0-liter V8; and the 90hp, 2.3-liter inline 4-cylinder. The body was redesigned 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 governmental regulations on the use of discrete, self-contained, standard headlamps from 1940 to 1983. 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 did not expect these changes to increase interest and was short parts for an estimated 10,000 cars by year's end. In 1987, ASC McLaren began offering custom convertibles made from two-door coupes.
