Mustang: the eternal dream of men
According to car enthusiasts, the top three Mustang models of all time are

The Mustang is a muscle car that Ford has been producing since late 1964. It is a vehicle that many people have loved for a long time as a symbol of American automobiles. Recently, Mustang unveiled a special edition to celebrate its 60th anniversary.

Among the many Mustangs released in the past, some models are considered by vehicle enthusiasts to have the best design and performance. In particular, the 1967 Ford Mustang is known as the progenitor of the Mustang and is said to be the first vehicle to introduce the fastback design, which was unfamiliar at the time.

The 1967 GT500 Fastback
Currently selling at a high price.

The 1967 Ford Mustang GT500 Fastback is a model that can be considered the first generation of the Mustang. It had a V8 engine and two 4-barrel 600 CFM Holley carburetors. It was fitted with an aluminum mid-rise intake. The fastback introduced then was a somewhat unfamiliar design in the 1960s but brought about a sensational design revolution.

In the current used car market, the Fastback Classic model is said to be a design with tremendous value, selling for almost twice the price of the Coupe Classic model. Various parts of the vehicle were made of glass fiber structure to increase the vehicle’s speed. Specifically, the front end, hood, taillight panel, deck lid, quarter panel extensions, and side scoops are made of fiberglass.

The 2007 GT500
Maintains its Retro Design

The 2007 Ford Mustang GT500 received great love for its design, which attempted to maintain the retro appearance of the first-generation GT500. Although it has been on the market for almost 20 years, it boasts performance comparable to modern vehicles. Specifically, it is equipped with a 5.4-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 engine made entirely of aluminum.

It can produce 500 horsepower and 66kgf.m of torque and is equipped with an Easton R1222 Roots-type blower. Additionally, it is equipped with an air-to-air intercooler that adds 10 PSI to the intake system at peak boost, producing very impressive output for a 2007 model.

The 2022 GT500 Code Red
The Most Powerful in Mustang History

The 2022 Ford Mustang GT500 Code Red is the most potent model in Mustang history. Initially, the 2022 GT500 was equipped with a 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, but the Code Red Edition model did not use the same powertrain and received upgrades to engine structure, tuning, and performance. Therefore, it generates a maximum output of over 1,000 horsepower and a 107 kgf.m torque on 780 octane pump gas.

In addition to the powertrain, it has a comprehensive body kit, new badges, etc., and boasts a new interior and huge track wheels. This vehicle is also said to be a special edition model, with only 30 units produced for the 2020-2022 production year.
