Cool thread and pics. I gotta spend some time searching for pics to add. And I thought I was the only one that watched Mod Squad. :cool:

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.

Thanks for the pics. I too, liked seeing the Boss. Is it just the light or is that tail light panel really wavy?

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...

Good job Brett, I bet you could work for Turner Broadcasting colorizing old movies!

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