Ford of the Day

is a Ford Mustang Mach 1 Prototype

The Ford Mustang was introduced in 1964 as a sporty "pony car" to attract younger buyers into Ford products. After only a few short years of development, Ford saw the need to create performance Mustangs to compete with GM and their release of the Camaro and Firebird.

The Mach 1 started with the fastback "Sports Roof" body and added several visual and performance enhancing items such as matt black hood and optional spoiler, hood pins, chrome gas cap and wheels, chrome exhaust tips (optional), chin spoiler and a 351 Windsor motor as base with either a two barrel or four barrel carburetor. A 390 CI four barrel as well as the huge 428 Cobra Jet were also available engines.

By the way, Lord Ford is driving a 1996 Lancia Y with 6 gears. Que macchina!
