I bought a running/driving Capri for $300 bux, pulled the drive line outa my old 87, put the Capri driveline in the 87 and sold it! Then I beat the Capri to death with a baseball bat! All the glass was broken when I got it anyway. My arms were sore for awhile but mam it felt good!! Then my buddy shot it up before I had it crushed... Almost forgot I had that 87 motor still.... Hmmm

From 67 up the cougar was a stretched mustang. Can't remember the year they stopped it. I'm getting ready to purchase an 86 Capri rs all original.

Unless you know what to look for, you probably wouldn't notice one, because they look so much like a Mustang.. You may have seen one, just not known it. They are not common, but neither are they rare.

Driving experience: questionnable!

The group of Mustangs imported for press purposes included Coupes and convertibles with different equipment. We drove the sportier version, a coupe with a 289/4V and 4-speed manual transmission. It is very typical for American "uncareness" that they marry such a big engine with the same suspension, those usually only takes the 105 DIN HP standard engine. Top speed is published by Ford at 175km/h, but we were able to get the car up to 194km/h. Based on the 190DIN HP we were not very much surprised, but don't ask us about safety at this speed. The brakes were no way of sufficient to get the car down to zero speed and with some uneven spots on the Autobahn, we needed 2 lanes, to keep the car on the road. With other words: the car was really a looser, if measured against other cars with the same top speed. The only competitive feature of the engine was the impressive acceleration. Anyway, braking into winding curves was a definitely a no-go, because the brakes completely failed and needed hours to recover from fading. Driving curves quick was almost impossible despite the new Dunlop SP tires, that were mounted in Cologne because the car stomped and lifted like a steamer on the ocean. On bad roads there was not even a chance to use the power of the engine, neither straight nor windy - the rear tires were too often off the road. Our judgment upon our first impressions: A mass production box - put together without any further thought, but with a superb torquy and powerful engine.

We would not have written a test-report here, if Ford had not calmed our criticism, that in this form no Mustang would be delivered to Europe. They told us that the 65 model would be the first model to be imported with a lot of improvements. In general the so-called heavy-duty-version will be the only one available in Europe. Features of this will be improved brakes, much stronger springs and more adequate shock absorbers. None of these was yet available, so we had to be content, with what we had. Without doubt, these improvements will enhance the driving safety of the T 5 considerable. We got a teaser, when after 1000 miles, although we had not outperformed the brakes, they totally failed. The Stuttgarter Schwabengarage replaced them - and as they had yet no Mustang parts available, they took parts from a Fairlane. These bigger brakes, were much better and were even good for Swiss Mountain roads, but not as good as disk brakes would be.

The usual lock-up of the rear tires during extreme braking was not experienced in normal town cruising, maybe because we had bigger loads in the trunk. The very weak and badly absorbed spring equipment was experienced also in normal driving. The car very often moved around its own axis, the rear axle had very often contact with the rubber bump stops. We believe, that not only the European customers, but also the American Mustang-drivers would be much better served with a HD suspension, because the current version is really dangerous rather than convenient. Mounting stronger springs and shocks will enhance the straight driving on bad roads as well, because the "co-steering-effect" of the rear axle will be much less.

Another step for improvement will be the disk brakes, that will be available as an option. Curious enough they will be not available with a power option, so the necessary foot pressure will be probably very high. The drum brakes that we had in our test car, had no power assistance, but they have apparently a very strong self-assistance, thus needing only minor foot pressure.The steering did not call for assistance (although it is available), it was was very easy to control, but had a very indirect feel. A quicker ratio is available, that probably needs power assistance. With the standard steering the T 5 is an easy to steer car, but not very handy. We were surprised about the very good gear changing of the 4-speed-transmission. The short lever was easy and safe to shift, the synchronizing was perfect. Usually transmissions, that have to deal with lots of power, are not so easy to operate. A good feature was the locking mechanism for the rear gear. Unfortunately it is a little bit sharp and you might cut yourself.

The engine is very powerfull and stops any criticism - only it outperforms the chassis a lot. With such an engine in a very light car you can manage a lot. Remarkbly the engine did not use too much fuel. Driven between 2000 and 4000 rpm we noticed a consumption of 13 to 18 Liter/100km, meaning not much more than with European six-cylinder sports cars. Here the Mustang sets itself apart from the Thunderbird, where 20 to 30 liters/100km were a normal value. This prohibits the Thunderbird for Europe. Talking about reliability, there will be no problem for sure, if you think of the low rpms. The acceleration is already very impressive under 4000 rpm, so you rarely want to use the maximum power band up to 5000 rpm. Above this red line the engine quickly looses power.

Back to the acceleration: you can outperform most European sportscars with the T 5. But naturally the Porsche 911 and the Mercedes 230SL, that basically correspond to the powerband of the T 5, are much quicker on windy roads. But as Ford had already proven with the Falcon, what you can do with such mass production suspensions, if you want to squeeze it.

Maybe the T5 will be available in Europe with the 175DIN HP 2V version, not with the 4V 190 HP. The current listed option price of DM 600,-- seems to be for the lower number V8 (Ford could not clarify it). We would like to say, that under normal conditions, nobody will ever complain about the 175 HP, because we could hardly use the 190 HP. The impressive power reserves during overtaking - one of the biggest plus of the T5 - will not encounter any problems with the 2V.

We had no chance to test the Six. We just got aware of the judgement of our austrian colleague Hans Patleich, who drove this one and was very disappointed, then he left the car very quickly, because "neither acceleration nor roadworthy driving nor a brake" was there. It corresponds for sure to our mid-size compact cars, but does not correspondend witht the image of a sporty car. As the 8-cylinder car it is very cheap, there is no reason to not decide for this powerful engine. However, you might think about an automatic transmission. The V8 takes the slippage very easy and the going with the automatic is really worth the amount of this option. It is not without reason that even European sports car manufacturer foresee a great future for the automatic transmission. Here it is up to you, wether you are a maual or an automatic guy.

They're folks that live in germany and drive germans cars. They often don't leave remotely decent reviews for any non german car. That's just my experience!

Re: mustang lingo

It is a brutally honest review. I have owned three early Mustangs and the brakes were terrible and the handling was worse. But they would go like stink in a straight line...
