Check the promotional video of a similar Mustang from the Collings Foundation – this could be you:

All right, that’s your 415 Mustang Update for 2017…

(Man, that narrow 10-speed chain is doing a lot of work.)

With electric assist, prices start at $5900. If you want a garage to park this hefty rig at night, prices start at … [pinkie bite] $1 million dollars.

Later on, all can join in on the fun, as here:

Aging Relic of the Upper Haight: This Ford Falcon Looks Nothing Like a Ford Falcon

To me, anyway:

Oh, Club Wagon – that’s the difference:

Tough to believe that this rig is a close cousin to a Ford Mustang, but it is.

This is an eight passenger vehicle, believe it or not.

That’s not really a boxy Ford Fairmont, it’s a boxy Mustang* LX. I had me one, with the same dog-dish hubcaps, bought at police auction, 90,000 miles. Sold it back in the ’90’s. I dressed up more back then, I was thinner too.

Anyway, this guy is rolling 1980’s-style – he really stands out from the crowd when you see him. Look for him on Larkin.

*But both were Fox platform rides and basically the same thing. Engineers from GM called this Mustang “the best damn Ford Fairmont ever built,” you know, as an insult.
