So it’s no secret the “Fast and the Furious” line of movies have been a thorn in the side of domestic muscle car owners, in fact the flock of rice (modded imports) taking over the streets of cities nationwide was sparked by this series. It’s also no secret we’ve made fun of those cars too (insert fart-can comment, riceburner, boeing 747 inspired race wing that actually hurts their traction rather than help, etc.).

Mustang Shelby GT500 (1967)

Shelby Mustang GT500 (1967)

A blend of sports car and muscle car, the 1967 Shelby GT 500 satisfyed a maturing taste for high performance.

The GT 500 represented a departure for Ford factory tuner Carroll Shelby. To make a road-racing champ of the 1965-1966 Mustangs, Shelby had transformed them into thundering thoroughbreds ill-suited to everyday driving. By 1967, however, Shelby’s audience was demanding more civility, and the original pony car was undergoing a revamp that finally gave it room for big-block power.

With the introduction of the 1967 models, regular Mustangs could get a 320-bhp 390-cid four-barrel V-8. Shelby, naturally, went further. His GT 350 retained its 289-cid V-8 with its 306-bhp rating. And a new model, the 1967 Shelby GT 500, got a reworked 428-cid “Police Interceptor.”

The 428 was otherwise reserved for bigger Fords, where it made 345 bhp. Shelby added the cast-aluminum medium-rise intake manifold from Ford’s 427, twin 600-cfm Holley four-barrel carburetors, and other tweaks for a conservative rating of 355 bhp. During manufacture or through dealers, a handful of 1967 Shelby GT 500s were equipped with Ford’s near race-ready 427-cid V-8.

Ford Mustang GT (2010)

2010 Ford Mustang GT

It’s easy to have mixed feelings about the 2005-2009 Mustang GT. It’s handsome, for the money you paid you got pretty good V8 power and it was fast enough. Where the (suddenly) last-gen Mustang falls down is the lowest bidder interior, questionable handling and non-track day brakes. “Listen baby I had a great time, but don’t lose any sleep sitting by the phone.” But hey, Ford’s prepped a (kinda) all new steed for 2010 and you can bet Mullally’s golden ‘chute that Mustang engineers have been hard at work addressing the above issues. Well, except for the brakes.

Ford Mustang Bullitt 2008

Posted by admin On October - 2 - 2008

Ford has once again turned to the Bullitt moniker for a warmer version of the Mustang. In 2001, punters were given a version of the Mustang with a 265 bhp V8 and dark green paintwork, reminiscent of the Mustang driven by Steve McQueen in the film “Bullitt”. The Ford Mustang Bullitt card has been played again for the 2008 model year. In addition to the dark green paint, this latest edition also features an exhaust note tuned to the sound of the Bullitt Mustang’s engine, as Ford engineered played and replayed the “Bullitt” DVD. That almost no-one would notice and fewer would probably care was obviously not entertained. Cynical marketing moves aside, the Bullitt does feature a few changes over the standard Mustang.
