A History Of Ford Mustangs In The Movies

April marks the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang. Gail Brown, a 22-year old schoolteacher from Chicago at the time, plunked down $3,419 for the first Mustang ever sold on April 15th, 1964.

What’s interesting is that Brown was able to score one before its official release on April 17th. Ford projected 100,000 sales in the first year. First day sales hit 22,000. The Ford Mustang was on its way to iconic status. Accidents can happen with how fast these cars get on the road, if you’ve been in a crash and the car is wrecked, you can contact towingless.com.

What was next? Product placement, 1960’s style. The Mustang officially hit the silver screen in the 1964 James Bond movie, Goldfinger. Since then, over 500 films have featured a Mustang. Take a look at the most noteworthy ones. Read the rest of this entry »

2015 Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Edition

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Ford Mustang’s introduction to the world. The iconic car rolled out in 1964. Now, Ford will commemorate the occasion by building 1,964 units of the 2015 Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition. Buyers get two colors: Wimbledon White or Kona blue, and a choice of six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic.

The chrome highlights and louvered rear quarter windows come only in this edition. Other offerings include cashmere and leather on the steering wheel, front bucket seats and other console areas. The limited edition has a 5.0-liter V8 producing 420 hp. This thing looks good and they’ll come out first half of next year, so save a spot in line starting. Right. NOW.

2015 Ford Mustang Convertible: Topless At 50

The Ford Mustang has turned 50, and it’s decided to whip em out for its birthday bash. Not much yet is known about the Convertible, but we do know its soft top roof lowers in 15 seconds. The 2015 Mustang is making headlines for being the first model in the car’s history to be offered for sale globally– so yes, technically, you could be in Tanzania challenging cheetahs to races. We’ll put our money on the 3.7-liter V6 (pegged by Ford as being capable of “at least” 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque) or 5.0-liter V8.

Equus Bass 770: Pump Up With Some Independent Muscle

Muscle cars are as American as hot dog pie, but that doesn’t mean Ford and Chevy deserve to never get nudged by a plucky upstart. Filling that role today is Detroit-based manufacturer Equus and the Bass 770. We don’t think anyone at Equus would deny the heavy influence from the older Mustangs and Dodger Challengers, but the 770 isn’t trying to compete with those vehicles, it’s trying to define its own niche: luxury muscle. The supercharged aluminum V8 engine cranks out 640 hp, and those horses come in handy when you’re carrying a hefty 3,640 lbs around. Despite that heft, the Bass 770 is said to do 0 to 60 in just 3.4 seconds. Wondering why the Bass 770 starts at a cool $250,000? Perhaps it’s because of the handcrafted interior, filled with delicious leather and aluminum everywhere you look. Or maybe that’s just the going rate for a unique slice of hot dog pie these days.
