Ford Will Produce a Limited Number of 2014 1/2 Mustangs

Jul 19 2013, 1:30pm CDT | by

Only 1000 units will be produced

If you're a fan of America's original pony car, the Ford Mustang, you'll know that a new version of the car is in the works for 2015. To mark the 50th anniversary of the pony car, Ford has confirmed that the first 1000 next-generation Mustangs will be sold as 2014 1/2 models.

That is a throwback to the original Mustang being sold as a 1964 1/2 model. “The 2014 ½ will be the 50th Anniversary edition,” a Ford representative stated. “It will be added to production for a limited run sometime during the year.” She later retracted the statement, saying,” Okay, we made a mistake. We misunderstood the information and we’re sorry for causing all this confusion.”

The 2014 1/2 Mustang will be the first Mustang to use the new S550 platform. Each of the 1000 limited edition units will reportedly have a special VIN number and build number. Sadly, the special edition Mustangs won't offer any additional performance compared to the normal 2015 model.

California cruisin’: from the sublime to the oddball

Aug 22 2014 8:38pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Just back from an amazing trip for “Car Week” to the Carmel area, where I took in a few auctions, the Vintage Races at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway, the Consorso Italiano, the Concorso d’LeMons and, of course, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The Concours d’LeMons show is a counterpoint to the ultra- priced cars with a selection of oddballs and cars not part of the mainstream collector hobby, or maybe very colle ...

'67 Chevy Corvair convertible vs. '86 Pontiac Fiero in cult classic showdown

Aug 22 2014 7:13pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Classics, Convertible, Coupe, Videos, Chevrolet, Pontiac Every few a decades, the folks running General Motors lose their minds briefly try to market a car that public doesn't see coming and often aren't ready for. In the '60s there was the rear-engine, air-cooled Chevrolet Corvair, then the mid-engine Pontiac Fiero in the '80s and the completely bizarre Chevy SSR in the 2000s. What all of these had in common was that they bucked the trend for Amer ...

That's not an insignificant fund, but when you start to cross-shop other cars with comparable performance, you quickly find (and we do mean quickly) that the Z06 is actually kind of an incredible barg ...

The car that gets the girl: beware false upfront advertising

Aug 22 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

She was beautiful up there on the stage at Harrison Trimble High School in Moncton, New Brunswick, in 1967. Her silky flaxen hair delicately swayed as she finessed the bow over the strings of the first cello in the Saint John High School orchestra that was visiting our school. When she looked toward my seat in the third row of the auditorium, she played only for me. I was certain of that. When the concert was over, I bolted from the school past the Saint John High School bus parked outs ...

Vancouver car voted one of top 10 customs in 1963

Aug 22 2014 6:15pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Car Craft magazine was one of the bibles for the rapidly escalating interest in car customizing when, in 1963, it published a special edition identifying the 10 best custom cars for 1963. This was at the peak of the car customizing craze that swept North America with owners transforming their rides into moving art and sculpture. The synergy of vision, opportunity and skills required to turn a mental picture into moving metal art is rare. Only a ...

Ram pickups to keep it steel through 2020

Aug 22 2014 2:50pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Truck, Technology, Ram One of the hottest topics in the industry these days is automakers' expanding use of aluminum, especially for vehicle bodies and platforms. While the lightweight metal has historically been the preserve of premium brands and sports cars, Ford shocked the industry when it announced that its 2015 F-150 would go aluminum-intensive for its new generation. As it turns out, the material change doesn't even mean a big jump i ...
