Pictorial Review : Ford Mustang GT

Pictorial Review : Ford Mustang GT

The Mustang is an American car so iconic that even non-car enthusiasts know of its existence. It is a brand in itself. In fact, the Ford name does not appear anywhere on the car (unless you count the ‘Powered By Ford’ etched on the engine cover or the faint print on the top of the windscreen).

Malaysia is one of the few right-hand drive markets to enjoy this example of 2-door American brawn. And because a picture is worth a thousand words we’ll tell the Mustang’s story with images. But first let’s go over some facts.

Why Would You Want One?

The Mustang represents classic Americana and its desire for long-hooded cars and raw horsepower. The Mustang is often credited for influencing the other American icons like the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. The roar of that naturally aspirated V8 will stir the loin of any petrolhead. It’s also the most affordable V8 in the market. This alone is reason enough to make this little pony your friend.
