Ford créa une nouvelle catégorie de voitures presque instantanément lorsqu'il présenta son coupé sportif Mustang, en plein milieu de l'année-modèle 1964, prenant de court le reste de l'industrie automobile américaine. Enfant chérie de Lee Iacocca – qui allait plus tard sauver la Chrysler Corporation – la Mustang est l'un des plus remarquables modèle à succès des temps modernes et sans doute le sommet de sa carrière chez Ford. Destinée à une jeune clientèle pour laquelle l'automobile est autant un style de vie qu'un moyen de transport, la Mustang réussit brillamment avec plus d'un quart de million de modèles vendus à la fin de 1964. Ces remarquables débuts furent suivis d'un étonnant chiffre de 524 791 ventes en 1965, qui firent la fortune de Ford.

Le secret du succès de la Mustang tenait à son pouvoir de séduction qui dépassait largement sa cible, grâce à un excellent rapport qualité prix, combinant un aspect sportif à une consommation raisonnable et de bonnes performances. On pouvait commander des Mustang aux caractéristiques allant de l'économique six cylindres à la luxueuse V8, tandis que les clients pouvait choisir parmi un large catalogue d'options, si bien qu'il est rare de rencontrer deux Mustang identiques. La Mustang fut agrandie et modifiée en 1969 et à nouveau en 1971.

Construite à Dearborn, l'usine du Michigan, ce modèle fastback, gris avec intérieur noir, est équipé du V8 302 (5 litres) et de la transmission manuelle. Restauré en 2013 par un spécialiste parisien, la voiture est vendue avec sa carte grise française de collection, son contrôle technique et les factures relatives à sa restauration.

1970 Ford Mustang Fastback Coupé
Chassis no. 0F02F176625
Engine no. 162781

•Iconic American classic
•5.0-litre V8 engine
•Restored in 2013
•Registered in France

Ford created a new class of car almost overnight with the introduction of the Mustang sports coupé part way through the 1964 season, catching the rest of the US auto industry off guard. Brainchild of Lee Iacocca - subsequent saviour of the Chrysler Corporation – the Mustang is one of the most remarkable automotive success stories of modern times and arguably the pinnacle of his long career with Ford. Aimed at the affluent young, for whom a car was as much a lifestyle statement as means of transport, the Mustang succeeded brilliantly, achieving sales in excess of a quarter million by the end of '64. This remarkable debut was followed by a staggering 524,791 sales in 1965, earning Ford a fortune.

The secret of the Mustang's success was a broad appeal that extended beyond the target market thanks to a great value-for-money package combining sporty looks, decent economy and brisk performance. Mustangs could be ordered in specifications ranging from six-cylinder 'economy' to V8-powered luxury, while customers could choose from an extensive range of factory options, with the result that seldom are two Mustangs identical. The Mustang was enlarged and restyled for 1969 and again for 1971.

Built in Ford's Dearborn, Michigan plant, this fastback model has the 302ci (5.0-litre) V8 engine and manual transmission, and is finished in grey with black interior. Restored in 2013 by a Parisian specialist, the car comes with French Carte Grise de Collection, Contrôle Technique, and invoices relating to the restoration.
