1987 Ford Mustang

The 1987 Toyota Celica GT could hardly compete with the 1987 Ford Mustang. While not much changed with the engine of America's favorite pony car, the exterior received a complete revamping.  New front and rear fascias added to the aerodynamic look that would remain with the Mustang throughout the late '80s and early '90s.

A 5.0-liter, HO V8 was the top-of-the-line engine for that year, giving the driver 225 horses at his or her disposal. The GT and Saleen trims were again among the most popular for the model year, with the popular "basket weave" wheels on the Saleen continuing to draw admiring glances on the street.
