Default This'll get the Fox Body Mustang guys goin'...

Had been talking about doing the article "Out of the Box Fox" for a couple years with Editor Evan Smith of Muscle Mustangs. We finally decided to pull the trigger and come up with some ideas to help inspire fox body guys with some ideas we came up with. Thought I'd share 'em.

I love me some Fox Bodies!

Here is my coupe that I built a few years ago -- sold it though. Kind of looks a bit like the rendering above.

Fox body notchbacks are the modern day 69 camaro. They are great looking cars. A lot a lot better than the hatchbacks!!

Their value is starting to increase a bit. When I sold mine, I lost my arse........

I've seen a few of them that were very well done sell in the mid $20's recently.

I'd have to agree with this. I really don't like their interiors though, lol. The early 4 headlight cars could easily be the 67/68 cars. They look great as well but aren't as "loved" as the later cars.

John, the renderings look great. I love the first one. Very hardcore and the early style really does it for me. The Capri looks nice also. Great job!

The Capri fenders have that nice factory bulge/flare to them, just begging to be widened with some monster tires stuffed under them!

I always thought that the Capri's were the best looking of the fox era. I dig the Capri rendering above.
