The Ford Mustang GT is a 1990 hatchback pony car based on the Fox platform. The third-generation Mustang was in production for 14 years, starting in 1979 and ending in 1993.

From 1987 to 1993, the Foxbody Mustang received a facelift and was made available with a '5.0' branded V8 engine. The GT was the highest specification level available and retained the foglight position of the pre-facelift model.
