cool pics must be more out there?

 

I'm sure Ford has thousands of photos in their archives but I have not had any luck contacting anyone to spill the beans of what they have.

 

Here's a picture (not at the factory) but from April 1972.

In the music video for Aretha Franklin's song "Freeway of Love" you will see rail cars delivering 71 or 72 Mach I Mustangs.

Not super clear but it is during the last 6-8 seconds of the video. You will recognize one of the assembly line pics posted above from same music video. Notice other factory footage (Ford and GM) from 70's and 80's. I noticed an 80-82 Fox platform T-bird, showing the pass rear side window area --- among others. How many different cars can you spot? Some are tough to see! Enjoy! - Ray

 

 


Okay after some discussion and further review - my mention of the Thunderbird might actually be a 1979 LTD 2-door. Just sayin...

Not a production line pic, but a pretty cool shot here from the 1973 Chicago Auto Show:

Not unless it is wearing grande' badges

 

Dang, where's my glasses?

 

Geez, I gotta go to the eye doctor ASAP. Just 'cause it's blue doesn't make it a 'vert. Looks like a red 'vert on the left, though, right? :P

Great assembly line video of 71/73's at 16 seconds. The 71/73's on the rail car at the end of the video are hard to make out, but they are "our" Mustangs. I wonder where they found the original video to make the music video.

 

Thanks for posting Ray!

I have been looking for someone with photos from the Las Vegas Convention Center, 1971 Introductory Auto Show. It was held sometime around August or September of 1970. My 71 Boss 302 was actually shipped from Dearborn directly to the LVCC, according to the Emminger Invoice. I believe there were several other cars shipped there at the same time, ie: Diamonds Are Forever Mustangs (see the notes on Lois Emminger's list of the first 100 Mustangs for 1971:

Actually, I would like to see any and all photos people might have from any of the Auto Shows and the Assembly Lines....the ones posted so far have been fantastic to see. Thanks to those posters !!
