Mustangs From 2012 LA Auto Show

Posted by on December 1, 2012 - more

While there is no big news or announcements from Ford for Mustang fans at this year’s LA Auto Show, there were of course Mustangs at the show. Steve Saleen did announce the S351 Mustang, and there were lots of Ford big wigs at the show. But the emphasis from Ford was on smaller, more fuel efficient cars, like the Focus, Fiesta and C-Max.

Of course Ford had a Mustang alley lined with the usual suspects and engines on stands. And the Mustangs continues to be a popular choice of custom booths. Fresh from the SEMA show was the 2013 Ford Mustang GT RTR Spec 3 by Mothers Car Care. I had a chance to see this supercharged beast in action at the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational following SEMA and let me tell you, it was VERY impressive. All show and all go.


The customizers at Galpin Auto Sports – GAS – had a 2013 Steeda Mustang on display in the aftermarket hall. I am sure the Steeda is very fast and handles like a world class champ, but for some reason, it looked like it was riding high, like a 4×4. The booth was a ghost town, so I didn’t have a chance to ask about it. So a follow up article will probably have to happen with the Steeda folks.


Also in the aftermarket arena for GAS was the always awesome widebody Boss 302 in satin metallic competition orange.

Galpin Autos had a heavy presence in the exotics arena, as usual at the LA Auto Show. If not for their James Bond inspired Aston Martin display, Shelby display and Lotus coral, the exotics would have been mostly missing again.

As for the Shelby cars, Galpin brought their 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Barn Find, sitting next to the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 in Gotta Have It Green. But the heavy hitters also included a 2013 GT500 Super Snake and the widebody GT500 in white with blue stripes and red interior.

So enough talk, now it’s time for pictures. Please enjoy the gallery of Mustangs below.
