Ford Mustang hire
This Ford Mustang fastback must be the coolest American muscle car to hire in Yorkshire, Lancashire and the North West.
Our Mustang hire car was built at the St Jose plant in the golden state of California in 1969, and lived in the USA for most of its life. It was imported into the UK and restored in 2013. Compared to the first generation Mustangs of the mid 1960s it is slightly longer and has a more muscular appearance.
Finished in black with black interior trim and wooden steering wheel, it has undergone a full bare metal restoration, being rebuilt to look like the rare and famous Boss 429. The Boss 429 had a 7 litre engine. Ours has the 69 Mustang Fastback’s original 302 V8, but it’s still very powerful and not for the fainthearted.
With a 4 Speed manual transmission, giant sized hood air scoop and front air dam, raised white letter tyres on 15” Magnum wheels, this car looks the business. It has all the authentic finishing touches you would expect to see on a 1960s American Mustang, even down to the characteristic chrome bonnet pins.
The Ford Windsor 5.0 litre 302 cubic inch V8 engine is tuned to 277 horsepower. It has a 4 barrel Edelbrock carburettor, and manual 4 speed top loader gearbox with Hurst chrome shifter. In addition it is fitted with a ‘Monte Carlo’ brace to reduce body flex on the front suspension.
Please note that this car is left hand drive, and you can only hire it between 1 April and 30 November each year.
For an alternative Mustang Hire, we also offer a 1964 Ford Mustang Convertible
History of the Ford Mustang
Ford Mustangs have been in production for over fifty years, but the many variations of the classic Mustangs produced between 1964 and 1969 are the most acclaimed. Many regard the Mustang to be one of the best American muscle cars of all time. There were three body styles produced – the Fastback (also known as sportsroof ), the notchback and the convertible. According to Hemmings (a long established American classic car sales company) it’s the Fastback that is now the most-desired and valuable early Mustang. Their explanation for this is that there were more notchbacks made than any other body style, so there are more of them for sale. Our explanation is that the Fastback just looks so much better, and the 69 is the best of the best.
First Generation Mustangs
First generation Mustangs were released in 1964, with production running through to 1966. They were an instant success, with Ford reputedly selling 22,000 on the first day. The Mustang’s place in history was secured. It was one of the “pony car” class of American automobiles – sports car like coupes with long hoods and short rear decks.
Marketing for the Mustang was oriented towards the younger generation, offering sporting style at a reasonable price. Many options were available to individualize each car. Famous American racing driver Carroll Shelby raced the 1965 model as the GT350.
Second Generation Mustangs
Second generation Mustangs were produced between 1967 and 1968. In response to competition from manufacturers such as Chevrolet and Pontiac, Ford produced a slightly larger Mustang with embellished styling features. The cars were wider, longer and with bigger engines. Because of the wider track, the ’67 Mustang was a more stable car than the ’66. It was, generally speaking, a better car in every way that mattered. This is the Bullitt era Mustang which gave it the image of the bad boy car of the 1960s.
Third Generation Mustangs
Third generation Mustangs where produced between 1969 and 1970. The ’69 model featured four headlights and a sharp nose and simpler grille, with the more powerful 302 engine replacing the 289 V8s of previous generation Mustangs. Almost 300,000 cars were sold that year, of which ours is one. “Somebody finally built a better Mustang” declared Ford’s sales literature.
The ’69 Boss 429 on which our classic fastback Mustang is styled, was one of the rarest and most powerful models. Like the Boss 302, it was built for racing. The project to build a high performance Mustang was done in secret, so when the chief designer Larry Shinoda was asked what he was working on he answered “the boss’s car”, and that’s where the name came from.
Mustangs have starred in a number of films – ‘Bullitt’, ‘On her Majesty’s Secret Service’, ‘Fast and Furious 6’ and both the original and the remake of ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’.
