Top 10 Reasons Why the Fox Body Mustang is Suddenly So Valuable

September 24, 2020


In contrast to the failings of the Mustang II, the Fox Body Mustang — the third generation — is one of the longest-running Mustang generations. The Fox Body is the car that saved the Mustang — impressive performance capabilities, easy modifications, accessible price point and drivability make it one of the best muscle cars to date.

Are Fox Body Mustangs Increasing in Value?

If you’re looking at Fox Body Mustang price trends, you might be scratching your head watching the third-generation Fox Body values increase in recent years. While the original 1964 to 1973 generation Mustang is and likely always will be among the most valuable of the generations, this spunky third-gen car is making a surprising comeback.

Why Are Fox Body Mustangs So Expensive?

The reasons Fox Body Mustangs are increasing in value are unique to this car. Some of the special qualities of the Fox Body include its:

  • Accessible price point
  • Fast stock engine
  • Room for significant modifications
  • Many special editions
  • Practicality

Many know the Fox Body as the car that saved the Mustang. The failures of the Mustang II put the entire lineup in danger, but with multiple body styles and a variety of different options throughout the generation, the Fox Body cemented the legacy of the Mustang. This is one reason these cars fetch such a high price today — and it’s likely why they were the best-selling muscle cars of their time.

Buyers who bought these cars in the time frame in which they came out rode them into the ground. It’s incredibly rare to find a Ford Fox Body in new to mint condition, and after all, rarity is one of the major factors in higher-priced cars. When supply is down and demand goes up, so then do the prices.

In a recent Barret-Jackson auction, a 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R went for six figures, breaking records and leading to a steep increase in demand for Fox Bodies. In just a decade, simple, clean models of this generation have increased in value two to three times. However, not all Fox Bodies are worth a ton of money.

Many original Fox Bodies underwent significant devaluation for many reasons, from shoddy aftermarket paint jobs to mod parts that are less than ideal. Others suffered from use on the race track or drag strip, or worse, found themselves wrapped around a pole. Owners of Fox Bodies rode their cars into the ground because they were such an accessible muscle car and open to so many modifications.


Low mileage, original condition Fox Bodies are especially rare, and so they run at especially high price points. A well-modified Fox Body Mustang might also fetch a good price, but only so long as it retains the essential look and feel of a Fox Body.

If you find yourself wondering if a Fox Body Mustang holds value, check out the stark price trends for these cars.

Top 10 Reasons Why Fox Body Mustangs Are so Expensive

With prices on certain models almost doubling in the past 10 years, there are many reasons Fox Body Mustangs are so expensive nowadays.

1. Iconic Looks

In contrast to modern design aesthetics, the Ford Fox Body Mustang has an iconic boxy look. It also represented leaps and bounds in the Mustang range as the first aerodynamic Mustang styled after European design. The sloped front and hatchback design made it unique compared to the previous Mustangs, and it is perhaps one of the most recognizable coupes from the ’80s.

2. Easily Modifiable

Fox Body Mustangs are incredibly easy to modify. Ford used the Fox Body platform on many different cars, so parts became easy to interchange, even between models. Because of the huge number of cars produced using the Fox Body platform, it has one of the biggest markets for mods and aftermarket parts.

The availability of aftermarket parts means you can buy or replace practically everything in this car. And what’s better? Prices for aftermarket parts are pretty affordable. With the values on this car rising through the roof, making modifications or repairs is a good investment into the future value of your car.

3. Impressive Racing Performance

While today’s 480-horsepower engines make the 5.0 Fox Body Mustang seem like a toy, it was a benchmark of its time. A 4.9-liter V8 engine in these cars can produce horsepower in the 200s — for an affordable muscle car, that’s some incredible bang for your buck.

4. Daily Driving

What made this car so appealing wasn’t just that it could perform well on a race track — it was ideal for daily driving, too. Most muscle cars are built for performance, so comfort tends to take a backseat. On the other hand, the Fox Body Mustang interior features comfortable front seats, a usable backseat and a convenient trunk. These features, plus A/C and a smooth ride, make the Fox Body Mustang suitable for everyday driving.

5. Good Investment

If you bought a Fox Body Mustang convertible in 2005 and kept it in clean, good condition, your car would be worth more today than when you bought it. With increases in value and this car’s entrance into the prime classic car time frame, investing in repairs and quality aftermarket parts will definitely get you a good return on investment — if you even want to sell. Most owners of these Fox Bodies tend to hold onto their cars because they’re such a good combination of power and usability.

6. Increasing Nostalgia

Trends come back in style all the time. While you might not find Ford making Mustangs in the style of the older, boxier models, many people seek out those aesthetics. Car enthusiasts, especially those who grew up around the release of the third generation Mustangs, appreciate the iconic look of the Fox Body as a nod to simpler times — before classic rock was classic and when acid-wash jeans were popular, at least for the first time. Top Flight Automotive offers pre-mounted wheels and tires in both nostalgic original styles or modern performance styles, catering to our customers and known for our quality products.


7. Availability

Ford made their third-generation Fox Bodies from 1979 until 1993, so there are a bunch out there. But it’s harder than you might think to find one in great condition. Because most owners really got their use out of these cars, there are few examples of low-mileage, pristine Fox Body Mustangs. But if you find one with a few mods you don’t like, the availability of aftermarket parts is so large for these cars, you’re sure to find something to your taste to replace it.

8. Special Editions

In addition to releasing standard models, Ford also released a few special editions:

  • GT350: The GT350 premiered in 1984. This model was available in either hatchback or convertible and featured either a 302 cubic-inch V8 or the 2.3L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine.
  • Mustang SVO: Also coming out in 1984, this car had a turbo 4-cylinder, the very first air-to-air intercooler and quad shocks.
  • Cobra Fox Body: The Cobra of early years had slat grilles, rear-facing hood scoops and rear spoilers. The 1993 Cobra made a comeback with two versions — the Mustang SVT Cobra and the Cobra R.
  • Special Services Mustangs: Ford made these especially for law enforcement use.
  • Saleen Fox Body: This special edition came with aerodynamic panels and racing suspension.
  • 7-Up Promo Mustang: Meant as a 7-Up promo, this LX 5.0 convertible Fox Body featured a deep emerald green color, white bucket seats and aluminum wheels.

9. Practical Classic Muscle Car

If you just have to have a classic muscle car but you need something you can take to work or on weekend trips, the Fox Body Mustang is the car for you. If you find a clean, low mileage example, you’ll be able to drive it in normal traffic conditions, plus take a few laps on the track whenever you want. With seats in the back, A/C in most models and a trunk, this is one of the most practical classic muscle cars you can choose.

10. Enthusiastic Community

Nostalgia and a timeless design combine to gather a huge cult following for the Fox Body Mustang. Because the Fox Body is so receptive to modifications, it also has a large following from newer fans looking for muscle cars they can customize easily and on a budget.

Price Trends for Fox Body Mustangs

Classic cars tend to increase in value, but something perhaps no one foresaw was a drastic increase in price in one of the most overlooked generations of Mustangs — the Fox Body. While most people wouldn’t have turned their heads at a Fox Body two decades ago, growing nostalgia and interest in these cars means a steep increase in value.

In general, Ford Mustangs have increased in price steadily, following the larger market trends. In 1980, the average car price was around $7,000, which accounting for inflation is about $24,000 in 2021. Today, the average new car price is around $40,000, meaning even accounting for inflation, prices on new cars have grown drastically. Even so, the Fox Body has undergone even more impressive jumps in value.

Recently, a nice but rather ordinary ’92 LX 5.0 Fox Body Mustang Notchback sold for a whopping $37,000. Twenty years ago, spending that amount on a standard Fox Body would have been unheard of.


The 1986 Ford Mustang has gone on a roller coaster of a journey. In the early 2010s, for example, the average price was around $2,597. By 2018, the price rocketed to $23,552. That’s a year-over-year increase of 16.83%. Another big price jump happened for the 1989 Ford Mustang. This model went through an impressive increase — from $5,831 in 2011 to $16,648 in 2021.

In the past five years, average price ranges for Fox Bodies have grown from around $6,000 to $10,000 all the way up to $13,000 to $20,000. Currently, prices for good condition, rust-free Fox Bodies mirror those of brand new cars. Spending around $20,000 for an almost 40-year-old car might seem questionable to some, but for those who know the value of these third-generation Mustangs, it’s a smart investment.

How Much Does a Fox Body Mustang Cost Today?

Today, clean Fox Body Mustang GTs with low mileage go for around $20,000 on the low end, but you’ll pay even more for attractive models such as the Cobra or the SVO.

    I started at age 14 with a 1941 Ford flat head. Milled the heads, dual Offenhauser dual intake manifold, headers, glass packs. T- masters. I have had many Fords, flatheads modified, Y-blocks, of the 50’s, 32 Duce, one rail,
    and in my older age of 82 am down to a blueprinted, blown, 88 Notchback, and a go to church 1989 hatchback,
    (bought it brand new) lightly modified as it runs 13.1 @ 105 MPH with 60 ‘ time of 1.7 sec. I enjoy still going to Rod and Custom Shows and like to see the younger generation get into Hot Rod Clubs and have a lot of fun and enjoyment. The youth today have lots of new innovations and build some beautiful engines and cars and are very smart and up to date on how to make their rods fast. The drag strip is a fun place to spend a Saturday.

    I’m the proud original owner of a 91 wild strawberry GT convertible. A few years ago, I was out of work and I was thinking of selling it. My wife got mad and said that I forgot who’s name is also on the title; and my son said he would kick my a** if I sold it. Thankfully I listened to both of them and kept the car!

    Growing up as a pre-Gibbs Redskins and pre-H.O. Mustang fan had some frustrating moments. Then the 80’s came. I got my license, the Skins were winning superbowls and modified 5.0 Foxbodies were often the cars to beat on the street. My first new car was an ‘88 LX 5.0 5spd hatchback and now I have two notchbacks one 5.0/5spd and the other a turbo 2.3/5spd. I get many smiles per gallon with both. Once in awhile someone (usually much younger) will ask me what kind of car that is and I tell them “it’s a lunchbox mustang”. Because of their comparative low weight these cars are still relevant on the street. You can even still be competitive with a stock based engine with the huge aftermarket support these cars and the SBF enjoy now.

    I grew up with these ponies, my first gt was 89 white, gray interior, 5speed all the good stuff. I sold that gt, bought a 88 Coupe 5speed with a lot of performance parts on it, still have it parked in my garage next to my 01 gt v8 5speed convertible and my 64 Impala 2dr lowrider, very difficult decision to put a price on it! I love mustang am glad the new generation it’s finding out how we the old heads started playing nice with the ponies, then/now

    I own an original, except tires and battery,89 LX with all the options that you can get on a GT but has those stainless exhaust pipes. It came with a 5.0 five speed and the gray interior, the color is Chardonnay. I bought it ten years ago for X grand, with 32 K on the odometer. It’s a great investment that i can have fun with, better than gold.

    I’m in love with the 80s, and as a 80s kids I loved 3 cars the 928 Porsche, 308 Ferrari and the 5.0 mustang. The 1st car I bought was a 1992 LX 5.0. I drove that car into the ground. I retired the car with 228000. IF you grew up in the 80s you would have to agree everyone 45 and up has a 5.0 story. You may even hate the car but I bet you have a 5.0 story. You either saw your friends burning rubber, your new boyfriend owned one, or his dad. I have a cool collection of cars now but there are 3 cars I will never sell: 1993 Cobra Mustang, 928 Porsche, and 1968 tricked out Chevelle.

    Good morning everyone. Love the article but we can not forget the 84 to 86 Svo mustang. I know yea yea yea its a 4cyl. But its unique in its own way. You got a lot of cool stuff on these mustang. 4 wheel disc, adjustable shocks, better steering, better seats, better manual 5spd, turbo, early builds as my 84 built in 83 got slapper bars. And these mustangs got the tail lights used on the 93 cobras. Now that i own one i really ncan appreciate how cool and undervalued these cars really are. I beleive their time to shine is coming especially low mileage ones like mine with 13k miles. Orig down to . My final thought grab one while you can. You own one you will understand. Their a piece of ford history. 🙂

    Great article and wonderful to hear Fox Body Mustang values are on the rise and interest is increasing. Bought my ’88 LX convertable in April ’88, Scarlett Red on red with black top 2.3l 4-cyl, goes as fast as I need it to. Currently 106k miles, garage kept all original except radiator, will never sell just pass on to my son. Live in rural area and it takes these roads with ease, just a lot fun.

    In 1991 I was home from college for the summer. My HS buddy had just bought a bare bones 25th anniversary black 5.0 hatchback. The only real option was A/C. We were cruising down the Blvd in our hometown. He said to me “When this thing hits 3,000 RPM, it just takes off!” I’m like “Show me!” It was awesome. 2 years later, I went to our hometown Ford dealership and ordered a Calypso Green 93 Notchback, 5 speed with black cloth interior. Cost $16,500 and Ford took 4 weeks to build it for me. Still got it; all stock except for what has worn our 1x, 2x times. 296K miles on the Noble Steed.

    Approximately 18 months ago, I bought an ‘86 GT convertible from a family friend for 6XXX. It had been stored for quite a while, and rarely driven the last 10-12 yrs. It now has 68K miles on it. All original Oxford white paint and black top. I live in AZ, so it’s a dream to drive most months the of the year. My 19 year old son just bought his first Mustang 3 months ago. A 2013 GT CS. My brother has an ‘88 and ‘90 GT. Gotta love being a part of the Mustang family.

    I’ll be blasting in the northeast D triangle.
    Hoooah to all foxbody stangs.

    Good artical. I’ve been into these foxbodies now since 2000. Still have my ’89 5.0 LX convertible street/strip car. Easy to work on & make them fast, even compared to new cars today. My car runs low 11’s@121mph & yet I can drive it to other states & get 22mpg while pulling a matching loaded trailer as well. Fun, fast, & pretty darn reliable. What’s not to like?

    I have a 1979 Ford mustang Pace Car, that has been heavily modified, I’ve owned it for 20 years and drove it all thru highschool, I was dumb and removed the a/c and heater because I was 16 and you know…. RACECAR!! I blew up the carb 2.3 turbo when I was 17 and did an SVO swap with a standalone megasquirt ECM around 2008, blew up that motor and was going to do a 460 and had 95% of the parts to do it, but I wanted a manual, so the car set for 10 years because of life and family and kids… brought out of storage Oct 2020 as a roller. The car now has a 4.6 2v out of a 97 mustang gt has PI heads, Comp cams, full exhaust and backed by a Tremec TR3650 5 speed. Has SN95 5 lug rear end with SN95 cobra front brakes. The car is a blast, I tried selling it in highschool with no engine but clean texas title for $200 and nobody wanted it, I’m glad I held on to it all these years, shes in desperate need of paint but I get compliments all the time. Oh my dad bought this car for me when I was 12 for the large sum of $100 and drove it on the trailer.

    Man how prices and times have changed, this is the only vehicle I own that I’m scared might get stolen just because of the crazy fox body values

    Great stories everyone, check out the car on Youtube under 79ModFox

    Thirteen years ago I stumbled across an all original 91 GT hatchback. No rust, no damage or visible abuse. Original owner was selling because OD was slipping, as AODs are notorious for. She couldn’t afford to repair it. So sold it to me. Brought it home, put it on one of my lifts in my man cave, rebuilt the tranny, tested it out, then put it back on the lift where it has sat for thirteen years except an occasional drive around my property to keep everything lubed up. May bring her out in a year or so when I completely finish my 65 Ranchero up.

    1990 and I was in high school wishing I had one (instead of my 77 Pontiac Safari station wagon). I’m 40 something and can now put some earned money into a nice one. Wish I’d had the thought 10 yrs ago. $$$😕😅 I bought a schweet 1989 Mustang 5.0 white convertible, white leather interior from a lady my age who’d owned it (garaged) since high school. Her father bought it brand new. I’m not in prime physical form but the car is and it’s a slice of youth I really enjoy with my sons.

    I’ve been in the Automotive Service industry all my life and my father God rest his soul gave me Mustang Fever at a very young age. Cruising with him in his 68 convertible on weekends was how I got that sickness, everyone would put the thumbs up. He ended up selling it for financial reasons in 84 and we both cried for years. In 90 a friend told me about a mother looking to sell a convertible belonging to her son. He was incarcerated in 88 with a 20 year sentence and she couldn’t drive it because it was a 5spd. I bought it with 12,000 miles and drove it on weekends, some with my dad full of smiles. I garaged it after I got married and never really had the urge to get it back on the road because I’ve been a Service Manager for Ford/Lincoln for over 28 years and anytime the bug hit me I’d just drive a new one ( demo ) for the weekend. I came home one day in the spring of 2018 and find years of stuff pulled out of the garage and all over my driveway, my oldest son had recruited a few of his friends after football practice and called out my bluff. He said you’ve been saying that one of these days we can start working on getting it running so I figured I’d get it ready. I’ll make this long story short. I replaced the tires, waterpump, radiator, brakes, cap, rotor, wires and spark plugs. Had it completely detailed and after experiencing backfires during our first long drive, replaced the fuel pump. Besides the Dayton Wire Wheels ( which cost me 3k in 1991 ) and the Hooker Chrome 3 PT rollbar, this is a truly stock, unmolested 87 5.0 convertible beauty with only 38k and original paint. And I wouldn’t take 40k for it, I told my son run it through Barrett Jackson after I’m gone and split the money with your brother. Mustang Fever!!

    I just purchased a 1992 Mustang GT 3-speed automatic with Cobra specifications but it’s a GT blue and silver and from what I know they made like 162 of that year and I’ve had people stop and talk to me all the time about do you want to sell this car I don’t see them cars on the road no more and honestly I found mine in a barn I had a wiring issue in person didn’t know how to fix it and since I’ve owned this car it’s been nothing but great to me and growing up as a kid I was born in 87 everybody had one of these they were the Talk of the Town and I would not trade my Mustang for nothing so easy to work on and I dropped mine as a daily driver back and forth to work it’s not horrible on gas it ride smooth if I want to I can let the top down and cruise but the fox bodies are becoming a dying breed of car and people who knew what they really had would never let go of a car like that

    I purchased my 1990 Mustang GT in Mettalic Blue brand new in October of 1990, came close to selling it 10 years ago, my Wife didn’t like the thought of me selling it and my Son said I was making a mistake if I sold it, thank God I kept it.

    Hi, I just bought mine in July 2022. It’s 91 Gt 5.0. It took me 22 years to buy. I grew up in Saudia Arabia. Growing up back then as a teenager, I wanted them so bad. But couldn’t afford it. Now, I can afford it. It’s all original and 48000 miles. It’s need a paint job and little tlc. It should be done by the end of august 2022. At least, I will have 2 months to enjoy. I won’t drive in snow. I will store it in garage. Gotta keep it original, clean and nice. Hard to get these cars. I Love the article and all the comments. Thanks. Be safe.

    Bought my first fox body in ’91 and was at the dealer when it arrived on the hauler all alone. 14 miles LX coupe 5.0 5 spd highway patrol in NC lt gray edition. My 1st exwife made me sell it in ’94, a young kid bought it and totaled it that year. My oldest son is 39 now and he remembers riding in the front so we both found a ’89 LX hatchback in 2004 – we completely stripped the entire car and put the body in storage for 19 years. The time has come to build the ultimate Prostreet and no rusted panels anywhere to deal with – on the 8th day GOD made MUSTANGS!!!

    Started with a ’65 in ’69 and have had one form or another Mustang ever since. I’m no die hard blue oval boy, but found the Mustang’s “3P” factor (practicality, price and performance) unbeatable on all counts. When the Fox rolled out, I began buying those beyond death, wrenched them back to life and drove them for a few years as my drivers. Once finished due to unibody strength issues, I’d part ’em and then crush ’em. Soon, I had Fox parts laying everywhere, and when my wife asked for a bright red convertible, the solution was obvious. She now has a corrosion free 86 ex-3.8 plain Jane for the unibody, ’86 GT 5.0 engine, front fascia and suspension, 86 LX diff, interior and last but not least, an F-150 C-5 select shift automatic. (she wouldn’t budge on the T-5…). and personally hand painted graphics. After a lot of tweaking, she’s now bright cherry red and a true one-off. Couldn’t have done this with any other car for the price… I live in deep, deep Chevy country and by the total silence encountered out there, I know she’s causing pain…. Roll on mighty Fox!!!
