What Is the Mustang Sherrod?Last Updated July 21, 2021 | Andrew Boyle
A special Mustang package known as the Sherrod was first introduced by Ford in 2008. Some features of the package included a billet-type upper and lower grille, side dual exhaust and a rear ducktail spoiler. The 2008 Mustang Sherrod came in a variety of colors such as Grabber Orange, Silver and White.
A single 1965 Mustang station wagon was produced as a prototype. Though the design was never picked up for mass-production, it definitely has inspired more than a few station wagons since then.
Available on several Mustang between 1983 and 2010 was a five-speed manual transmission known as the T5. The T5 was an effort by Ford to give the Mustang better gas mileage and performance. The T5 was beginning to be phased out in 1995 and was replaced with the TR-3550.
Between 1983 and 1986, the Predator Mustang was manufactured and sold through select dealerships. The brainchild of Tom Solomon, the designer involved with the Shelby and Cobra Mustangs, the Predator Mustang is one of the rarest and most sought-after Fox Body Mustangs due to the limited production numbers.
Created by Sherrod, a Georgia based manufacturer of van conversion kits, is the 500S. This upgrade package available on 2008 Mustangs onward includes a distinctive look, lightweight aluminum air splitter, '60s style billet grille, cold-air intake system, upgraded rims and side exhaust system.
