Lee Iacocca, the former president of the Ford division and the father of the Ford Mustang, has introduced a coach-built car called ‘2009 1/2 Iacocca Silver Edition Mustang‘. The car will be produced in quantities of only 45 units. Lee Iacocca was the leader of the Ford sector when the group introduced the original Mustang in 1964. The unique edition Mustang is the product of the collaborative work of Iacocca, designer Michael Leone, and California-based coachbuilder, Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters.

The Sliver Edition Mustang‘s suspension has been uprated with a Ford Racing Handling Package that adds firmer springs and re-valved shock absorbers while a possible 14-shuffle Ford Racing Braking Package is also offered.

Designer Michael Leone reworked the car’s outer that skin a matchless front-end dealing with absorbed-set headlights and a more prominent fastback look. As the Mustang’s name suggests, the only unfilled outer incline silver.

Inside, the Iacocca Silver Mustang gets special Iacocca Diamond Design leather seats, an Iacocca signature dash plate with serial number, a leather-wrapped steering swing with the “I” logo and Iacocca-badged aluminum door shelf plates.

All 45 units of the Iacocca Silver Mustang will be offered exclusively at Southern California’s Galpin Ford dealership, with prices set to be exposed at a later court.
