Special Ford Mustang honors Iacocca's pony carMon, 22 Jun 2009
Nearly 20 years after Lee Iacocca retired--and 45 years after he helped launch America's first pony car--the former Ford and Chrysler exec is attaching his visage to this: the Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang.
Planned for a limited run of only 45 units, the "I" edition features 5 hp more than stock from the Ford 4.6-liter V8; a 400-hp supercharged version is optional. Ford Racing suspension is standard, while 14-inch Ford Racing brakes are optional.
The car comes in Iacocca Silver, and while you won't find rich Corinthian leather inside, the car is trimmed in Iacocca Diamond Design leather seats. An Iacocca signature dash plaque completes the package.
Official pricing is yet to come, but expect the "I" to list for somewhere in the $60,000 range. For that, we want Lido himself to throw in a round of golf and two chili dogs from the course hot-dog stand. If you can find a better car, buy it.
The Iacocca Silver edition, built by Metalcrafters in Southern California, is available exclusively through Galpin Ford at 1-800-829-0744.
