It is parked next to two other vintage cars – Rolls Royce Silver shadow and a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. Ford Mustang is one of the most popular and recognisable muscle car around the world.
It was only recently that Ford launched their Mustang muscle car in India. The one that captain cool has bought recently is a 1969 model Mustang. The car seen here is actually not an original 1969 model. It is actually a 1970 model and the headlamps have been modified or converted to give it that 1969 look. The car looks well maintained and that is mainly because the car has been completely restored inside out.
The engine used in this Mustang is from a 1992 model. It is a 1992 5.0 litre V8 engine that generates 225 Ps and 406 Nm of peak torque. All the power and torque generated by this massive engine is sent to the rear wheels. Along with the engine, the suspension and brakes on this car have also been upgraded. It now gets coil over suspension with upgraded brakes. As mentioned above, the car has been completely redone and the interiors on this one has been done in Italian leather.
