As for high performance offerings, 1968 was the year Ford unleashed their 428 Cobra Jet Mustang. The car’s engine was conceived from a 428 police-car short block engine, aluminum manifold, 427 low-riser cylinder heads, and a special camshaft. It also featured numerous suspension tweaks. No doubt, the car was a huge hit at the drag strip. So popular, in fact, that Ford released a 2008 tribute model.
Mustang and Joey Logano dominated the competition Saturday, putting the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang in victory lane, and there was never much doubt.

America’s most iconic sports car, the original Ford Mustang, is back in production, better than ever. The first true replica of the Mustang, looking just as stunning as the original, but with modern powertrain and technology is being launched by Revology Cars, a specialty automobile manufacturer based in Winter Park, Florida.
Fifty years after the original Ford Mustang was revealed at the New York World’s Fair, the Revology Mustang replica will be unveiled March 14, 2015 at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, one of the nation`s most prestigious automotive events.
Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) and Henrik Fisker announced today the start of low-volume production on the 725hp coach-built super Mustang dubbed “The Rocket,” which was first unveiled as a prototype last November during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The first production model will make its world debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, March 14, where a select number of media will also have the opportunity to drive it.
Red and black clinch the top spots as the most popular exterior paint colors for the first global Mustang, according to initial consumer data.
Mustang demand has been high, with the car reaching dealer lots in the United States late last year and China in early 2015. It’s set to go on sale in Europe midyear, with nearly 1.1 million pony cars configured on Ford’s European websites just a month after ordering banks opened.
The GT was produced in model years 2005 and 2006, with the first customers taking delivery in August 2004. The GT began assembly at Mayflower Vehicle Systems in Norwalk, Ohio and was painted by Saleen in their Saleen Special Vehicles facility in Troy, Michigan. The GT is powered by an engine built at Ford’s Romeo Engine Plant in Romeo, Michigan. Installation of the engine and manual transmission along with interior finishing was handled in the SVT building at Ford’s Wixom, Michigan plant.
