1986 Ford Mustang GT


1986 Ford Mustang GT CONVERTIBLE

ABOVE & BELOW: 1986 was the first year for the third brake light (CHMSL or Center High-Mounted Stop Light), but where do you put it on a convertible? On the new-for-'86 luggage rack, of course.
ABOVE & BELOW: The 1986 Ford Mustang GT was basically carried over from the 1985 model, with very few changes. The 85-86 look was decidedly heavier & more muscular than the '84-and-earlier Mustangs, which looked smaller and more delicate, even though they were the same body shell. This 2-year window would also be the last before the big changes that took place in 1987, with the new 'Aero-look' and true multi-port EFI.
ABOVE: The 1986 Ford Mustang GT was the last to feature standard seal beam headlights. Every Mustang after '86 would use composite headlights. The flat black hood actually served a purpose: to cut sun glare into the driver's eyes.
BELOW: These handsome wheels are known as "10-holes" and they only came in 15".
