The Project

This 1969 Ford Mustang arrived into the Carrosserie workshop in December 2023 for bodywork repair and fabrication, full respray, engine overhaul and rebuild.

22nd February 2024:

Work commences with areas of fabrication work to the underside and left floor pan. Part of the left footwell has been replaced and lowered. Old welds/patches have began to be tidied up from previous works.

It’s hard for us here in 21st century England to appreciate the sheer impact that the Ford Mustang had when it was launched to the American public in late 1964. In 1950s America, choice and freedom of expression were in short supply. But as the children of the post war baby boom began to come of age, it became clear that new thinking would be needed to cater for a generation raised on rock n’ roll, a generation which wasn’t content to make do and be grateful, a generation that wanted more.
The Ford Mustang was the result. The project had been led by Lee Iacocca, a former engineer turned marketing man who knew how to sizzle and sell. It was based on the drivetrain of the conventional Ford Falcon, meaning reliable and proven parts – but clothed in a new and desirable body. One which came with a wide choice of colours and options, one where, in theory, no two Mustangs need be quite the same. And that’s before the engine and transmission choices. You could have a humble 170ci (2.8-litre) six pot with an automatic transmission, or a 289ci (4.7 litre) V8 with four on the floor. Three bodystyles – coupé, fastback and convertible – added to the potential to create a car which afforded owners the choice they craved.
And as the Mustang was the latest thing, it’s not surprising that it came replete with media and film attention. The Mustang has made thousands of film and television appearances going back to Goldfinger and Bullitt appearances that gave the Mustang a life of its own. What a shame, then, that it took until 2015 for Ford to make the world’s favourite muscle car available in Britain’s Blue Oval showrooms. Imports were the only route, and one that plenty of Brits followed.
As time passes interest is rising, and as those early cars fast approach their 60th birthdays values show growth. They’re dependable and parts are freely available, while it’s simple enough that you could do much of the maintenance yourself, so it’s just the job for someone taking their first steps into classic car ownership.
