When I think Mustang, I think my 67 Fastback with deluxe interior that I was restoring; I think of my 1st one 1969 Grande style or I think the pony cars which body style does nothing for me. The most popular are the fastback type and of course people think Shelby when you think old Mustang.


Mustangs 1st got killed in 1970 when they started to make them larger. 1969 has always been my "cut off" for a real Mustang. Then they went ultra small. Whoever designed the Mustangs around now did a decent job keeping them smallish yet making them resemble what people like in a Mustang. Heck, I've even seen a few that I would buy if I was able to get into a car.



Torino would be a good name to bring back if they can retool the car to what people want today. Falcon is another popular Ford car. My dad owned a lot of them, they're still around. I think they could retool it and reuse the name.
First; an 82 mustang is a fox chassis car, not an Mii. MustangIIs were from 74-78. And on the Pinto chassis

Second; 71-3 are the large cars. And they're barelly bigger than 64-70.
Ford has built the Falcon in Australia for decades, up until last year I think.
The Torino would probably end up like a rebadged Flex.

How often do you ever see one on the road these days, and Ford made a bazillion of them. The wrecking yard I go to always has a few, and they are almost always 4 cylinder cars.


We have two Foxes, a 92 hatch and a 84 Capri, both being built as drag/sometime street cars. But I rarely see any on the roads anymore, just driving around.
