The most exciting part about it was that Ford also introduced a high-performance 5-liter (302 cid) HO engine package. It was good for 157hp and was marketed as the 5.0L V8 engine. Your body style choices did become a bit more limited if you wanted the GT option, however. You could only get the GT in a hatchback. The GT package also limited your color selection to Black, Red, or Metallic Silver.
