Original Press Release:
Forty-five years after he introduced the original Ford Mustang, launched at a dramatic press conference on April 13, 1964 at the New York World’s Fair, auto industry visionary Lee Iacocca today announced a new vision of the famous muscle car – the Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang – a breathtaking vehicle that utilizes the latest in Ford performance technology with a style and panache that screams, Mustang fastback.
Only 45 “2009½” Iacocca Silver Edition Mustangs – all painted a special “Iacocca” chosen silver hue – will be built.
Nearly two years in the making, the Iacocca Silver Edition Mustang is a collaborative effort by Iacocca and designer Michael Leone. The Business is called I Legacy, and it will be in concert with the Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, the world-class coahbuilding Company in Fountain Valley, California and with the Galpin Ford Dealership, to offer these Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Fastback Edition to the Public.
In a word, the new Iacocca Silver Edition Mustang is stunning. The lines flow organically from front to rear. The hand-crafted piece of rolling art, with its innovations and impact of the fastback design is truly exceptional in every way. With its sunken headlights, slanted grill and low stance, the car gives you “street attitude.”
“Once in a while a car comes along that changes everything, and that was the original Mustang,” said Iacocca.
The Silver Edition Mustang perpetuates the Iacocca mystique.
The car begins life on a 2009 Mustang platform, which is then uniquely modified and coachbuilt. While the exterior fastback design of the Iacocca Silver Mustang is compelling, the mechanical underpinnings are true American muscle.
The car’s suspension has been upgraded to keep pace with the power delivery. A Ford Racing Handling Package adds firmer springs and re-valved shock absorbers. A 14-inch Ford Racing Braking Package is optional. All suspension components will be covered under a factory Ford warranty, as well.
Inside the Iacocca Silver Mustang, the interior is resplendent with luxurious touches that highlight the car’s special heritage, including Iacocca Diamond Design leather seats with embroidery stitching, an Iacocca signature dash plaque with serial number, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with “I” badge, and Iacocca-badged aluminum door sill plates.
The “Father of the Mustang” returns to the legend that started it all.
The vehicle itself:
Number 7 of only 45 Anniversary Edition Mustangs built, this vehicle has traveled less than 200 miles and has been garage-kept since it was built in 2009. The interior still sports it’s original dealer protective wrap with the custom leather interior showing no sign of aging.
