Top 10 Mustang Moments of 2007

The year 2007 was one to remember in the world of the Ford Mustang. With special-edition Mustangs debuting left and right, the return of “The King”, and horsepower like we've never seen, people will be talking about this year for some time to come. In addition to limited-edition pony cars and headlines touting 550-725hp, 2007 was the first year a convertible achieved a perfect National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) test score. That convertible, of course, was the 2008 Ford Mustang. Although I couldn't include them all, here's a few of my favorite 2007 highlights.

10. Mustang is the New Knight Rider KITT

The new Knight Rider KITT car made its official public debut at NBC Studios in Burbank, Calif. in December 2007. This time around KITT is a 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR.

9. Warriors in Pink Mustang

6. Mustangs Take on Sturgis

Instead of motorcycles, Mustangs converged upon Sturgis, S.D. for the First Annual Sturgis Mustang Rally, held in August of 2007.

5. Mustang Convertible Aces NHTSA Crash Test

In October of 2007, the 2008 Ford Mustang Convertible achieved the first ever perfect National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash test score for a convertible.

4. Dynacorn Introduces 1967 Fastback Restoration Body

Some people love it and some people despise it. In 2007, Dynacorn Classic Bodies introduced the 1967 Mustang Fastback replacement restoration body which allows folks such as Classic Design Concepts to put out mint 1967 Fastback Mustang....look-alikes.

3. The Bullitt Mustang Returns

In November of 2007, Ford debuted the 2008 Bullitt Mustang, which coincides with the 40th Anniversary of the movie’s release in 1968. The car made its first public appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

2. Glass Roof Mustang

In December of 2007, Ford announced the introduction of a glass roof Mustang for 2009. The car was set to make its public debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2008.

1. King of the Road Mustang Returns

In 2007, the Shelby GT500KR Mustang debuted at the New York International Auto Show. Ford spent the year touting it as the return of the more powerful, modernized, King of the Road Mustang. The 2008 Shelby GT500KR boasts 550hp, with an estimated 1,000 units available.
