Vintage Ford Video Describes Mustang as "Hot Blooded" [video]
With yesterday's news of Ford bringing a Mustang back atop the Empire State Building, we wanted to look back at what else Ford was doing to promote its vehicles back in the day. We found a few clever ads, but nothing tops this impressive dealer video from 1965. We came across this “dealer introduction video,” of the 1965 Ford Mustang, and it is everything great about dry tutorial-style videos from the time. It is not clear whether this was to train dealers, or to present to customers upon the arrival of the new Pony Car. Either way, watch on: RELATED: How Ford Put a Mustang atop the Empire State Building, Again
That is arguably the best first minute of a vehicle introduction video you will ever find. The horses, the Aaron Copland-style score, and…”Mustang.”

The voice over for this video is too good. “…Everything that its name implies– bold, strong, hot blooded, exciting.” Watch this video to the end, and re-learn everything about the 1965 Ford Mustang, including the specifics on which models come with the column-mounted track pack. It’s actually a helpful guide for anyone looking to buy an old Mustang, as it provides a reminder of which models SHOULD come with which particular gear.

For the rest of us, it’s just good, entertaining video.
Welcome to Throwback Thursday. This is our new feature where we’ll look back at car reviews and ads from days done by and poke fun at how ridiculous our hair looked from decades past. Enjoy!
