Ford Brings Back the '65 Mustang Convertible

link shared Oct 29, 2011 • 1 comment • 933 views

In one of the best examples I can think of of a company giving the people what they want, Ford is cranking out brand new '65 Mustangs. Well, not the whole thing, but the body — made with modern steel and welding techniques, no less — so that restorers, hobbyists and 'Stang worshipers can put their old drivetrains in them. I don't know why they don't just go whole hog and given them modern, efficient engines, as well…but I'm wacky like that.

 

Maybe, if we're lucky, GM will follow suit with new '57 Bel Air convertibles and '65 GTOs. I'd also love to see new '69 Dodge Coronet Hemis, but there's a certain hugeness threshhold you just can't cross in these resource-sensitive times.

 

Anyway, yay Ford. Hope we see more old-new stock like this coming down the pike.

We've waited for this for years..way to go FORD! It will be interesting to see how this affects collector prices and how they will determine values compared to resto-mods, restorations etc.

Why they did not offer updated drivetrains is a mystery...,maybe they are testing the waters. Vettes, camaros, Mopars could all be revived financially with this tactic.
|Thanks for bringing this up!
