[04/26/2003] Ford 2005 Mustang to appear at NMRA Quartermaster All-Star Nationals on Sunday -- May 4th, 2003


In the spirit of their founder who put the world on wheels, Ford Motor Company executives will fan out to 100 North American cities this spring as part of Ford’s 100th anniversary celebration. Henry Ford was one of the first to tour the great American landscape regularly with friends, including fellow historical figures Thomas Edison and John Burroughs.

Andy Benedict, Executive Director – Global Purchasing, will be in the Columbus, Ohio area on May 3 and 4, 2003 to serve as the Grand Marshal for the 4th Annual National Mustang Racing Association (NMRA) Ford All-Star Nationals at National Trail Raceway in Hebron.

“These road trips are fitting way to mark the 100th year of Ford, and they give us a chance to get out of our Dearborn, Michigan, headquarters to spread our enthusiasm about the Centennial and some of our legendary products with people around the country,” said Benedict.

The Mustang GT Coupe concept car, which captivated car enthusiasts when it was introduced at the 2003 North American International Auto Show, will be on display at the track on Sunday, May 4. The all-new 2005 Ford Mustang draws on the design direction of the concept car as well as the distinct styling cues from classic models, capturing the essence of the American pony car''s design and performance heritage.

The original 1964½ Mustang actually evolved from the racing-inspired, two-seat concept car called the Mustang 1. After reviewing archived files, Mustang’s modern-day crafters were struck by how the original design embraced the same inspirational cues that communicate performance. The design team looked beyond production models to the Mustang 1 concept for modern inspiration.

The Tungsten Silver Mustang GT Coupe concept car is instantly recognizable as a Mustang, yet the team stretched the design far into the future with a distinctly modern look. Like the Mustang 1 concept, the GT Coupe concept is a two-place sportscar. It started out with a significantly modified Ford Thunderbird rear-wheel-drive architecture. The platform was sectioned to achieve the proper proportion. The front-end geometry is all original – customized to accommodate the signature Mustang MOD 4.6-liter V-8.

The silhouette of the car is unmistakably Mustang, conjuring up images of 1967 and 1968 Fastbacks. Inside, there’s no mistaking the no-holds-barred Mustang classic cues. The cockpit is dramatic for the driver and passenger with lush red and charcoal leather accented by billet-aluminum hardware.

The 100-city road show is a prelude to Ford''s gala hometown celebration in Dearborn. The Road is Ours Centennial Celebration from June 12-16 is expected to draw thousands to the grounds of World Headquarters.
