Sure, if you’re old enough you remember him repping for Chrysler, but before he schlepped for the Ram Lee Iacocca was running things over at Ford. And forty-five years after he introduced the original Ford Mustang at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, Iacocca today announced a new version of the famous pony car – the Iacocca Silver 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang. Normally these PR exercises aren’t much to talk about, but this time it is — only because the car looks beautiful. That silver sheen makes the car look like a rolling J.A. Henckels vorpal blade. (They still need to work on that ass, though.)

Only 45 “2009½” Iacocca Silver Edition Mustangs – all painted a special “Iacocca” chosen silver hue – will be built, and they will only be available at Galpin Ford. No word on price yet.

“The car begins life on a 2009 Mustang platform, which is then uniquely modified and coachbuilt. While the exterior fastback design of the Iacocca Silver Mustang is compelling, the mechanical underpinnings are true American muscle.  Two power plant options will be offered, a normally-aspirated 4.6-liter Ford V8 rated at 320 horsepower and an optional supercharged version that delivers a head-snapping 400?horsepower… The car’s suspension has been upgraded to keep pace with the power delivery.  A Ford Racing Handling Package adds firmer springs and re-valved shock absorbers.  A 14-inch Ford Racing Braking Package is optional.”
