De Den Hartogh Fordmuseum owns the biggest collection of vintage Fords in the World.

Of course I will be there and shoot some pictures. If you have requests, drop me a mail.

The Hartogh Fordmuseum is an interesting place, they report to have the largest privately owned collection of early Fords in the world but I thought they only collect Fords 50 and earlier? They must be bringing the Mustangs in for the show, in any case looking forward to seeing the pictures, I'm sure the museum will insure they're first class.

True there collection is said to be older than the 50’s. Also I'm very curious where these mustangs are from, I’ll ask and report here, consider me the reporter on duty:)

Yesterday was the day to visit the Mustang exhibition, unfortunately it was not possible to go earlier so that’s why my report comes later as expected. I was really excited to what I was going to see and hoped for a lot of cars. All the Mustangs where placed near the entrance, so after entering we could see them and went straight to them.

Fortunately the older ones where in the majority but still the number of Mustangs was not what I hoped for, basically each type / year was represented by one car so it was not a big display.

 

See the pictures underneath.

Not to step on any too's, but I skipt the dark years for the Mustang.

 

P.s. to T5 owner, please consider driving to this exhibition sole for Mustangs, since there are not many on display. In case you like Fords from de Type “A” until the types from 1948, be ready for a very nice museum.

 

Thank you for your interest regards, Ronald

Hi folks,

 

While browsing I came across this topic. I went to this museum as well and got some shots, too. You can see them on my blog: http://vincentmobile.blogspot.nl/2015/02/the-ford-museum.html.

 

Cheers :-)
