1988 Ford Mustang

After the significant restyling the Ford Mustang received in 1987, the 1988 appeared with few changes, engines were still the 2.3-liter I4 with 88 horsepower, and the 5.0-liter V8 HO with 225 horses.
The GTs and Saleens remained available, but once again, neither of these showed much change from 1987.
