In the world of automotive, the name Ford is synonymous with the American pride and quality. Its quality and durability are well known all over the world for more than a century. Even until today, you could still see many Ford cars plying the American roads and in many vintage or classic car shows as well.
Ford is not only well known in quality but they have also contributed many new innovations in automotive industry. For example, Ford is the first manufacturer that uses the moving assembly line. This technology allows Ford to produce cars in a faster pace and also made the cars to be more affordable so that more people could own their own cars.
The more advanced assembly line also helped save a lot of time and money, hence allowed Ford to focus more on the research and development which in turn allowed them to come up with high standard vehicles, preserving the pride and quality of American’s products.
This high standard has allowed many classic and vintage Ford cars (which were made at the end of WWI and post WWII era) to be street worthy until today. Vintage Ford cars are still very alluring for many Ford loyalists even though a full functioning condition is hard to find these days. Many still invest their time, money and efforts in restoring them.
Some of the popular vintage and classic Ford cars produced in the 50s and the 60s are: the Fairlane, Thunderbird, Falcon, Galaxie, Torino, and of course, the Mustang. Many of these vintage models were reminiscent of the muscle cars that dominated the American automotive industry during that era. Big powerful and roaring engines were typical of these muscle cars. These cars were unmistakenly American.
When it comes to Ford classic car, it is the Ford Mustang that has captured the minds of many American teenagers. They saw it as a powerful and sexy vehicle that they wanted to have one day. Even the Hollywood films sometimes used the Mustang in their movies. This of course helps glamorize the Ford Mustang Classic further.
Besides pride, owning and maintaining a Ford Mustang classic car would entail some expenses. This is because the car parts are hard to find as they are not manufactured anymore. Because of this, parts may be lifted from the other cars with the same make and used as a restoration.
Needless to say that a restoration project will require you to spend some time to look for vintage car parts. And a great place to start is of course the mighty Internet.
You cannot go wrong with classic Ford cars. They are unmistakenly American and they give you a certain pride when you see people turn their heads and look at your car. Imagine owning a fully restored vintage Ford car, it will surely make you proud.
