11. Ford Mustang GT 5.0 HO
The Fox-body Mustang grew more powerful with each model year, starting from 175 HP in the 1983 model. But by the late ’80s, the venerable 5.0-liter V8 engine was pumping 225 HP and 300 lb.-ft of torque, which translated to quick 0 to 60 mph times. This car marked a return to the roots with a strong V8 engine and exciting performance (via Top Flight Automotive).
Also, the late ’80s Fox-body GT was popular so they are plentiful today. That makes them a great choice for entry-level collectors. On the other hand, the aftermarket for them is massive so you can make your Fox-body GT even faster both easily and inexpensively.
